This first-floor dining room of Little Gem Saloon evokes its early life in the 1900’s with an expansive beautifully carved custom built bar. The art deco inspired stage is a focal point where jazz trio’s and solo piano players perform evoking the sounds of early New Orleans. Intimate seating vignettes surround the stage and a wall of plush banquettes anchor the room. The black and white checkered floors span the airy room that is bordered by beautiful white leather and nail head shutters with music notes.
