…Welcome to Cliff Bell’s, where a truly unique dining and entertainment experience await you. As soon as you step through our doors, you’ll take a step back in time. The 1930’s charm of the lavish, art-deco interior will have your friends talking for hours.

The relaxed, welcoming atmosphere sets the mood for a night not to be forgotten. Signature cocktails are ordered as the Jazz trio begins to play on stage. The quiet bustle of the club begins to come to life!

Discover this cultural gem for yourself during one of our nightly jazz sets, dinner, Sunday brunch, or our popular happy hour Tuesday through Friday.
