Inspired by the New York jazz club scene, musicians Lucas and Ezequiel Cutaia founded Thelonius in 2002. Located on the first floor of an old building the dimly lit interior offers a 13-meter long bar, a stage lorded over by a bundle of strung lights, and leather couches and tables in an alcove at the far reaches of the club. The club offers a respectable bar food menu which includes pizzas, meat and cheese trays (picadas), and desserts - making it a great option for before or after dinner. The club prides itself on the variety of cocktails they mix up behind that 13 meter long bar.
The bar is open from Tuesday to Saturday, starting at 9:30pm. It's entry way is easy to miss, a simple plaque with its name. Get there early or make a reservation, as the narrow space fills up quickly. There is normally a cover charge, but how much depends on the act performing.
