Best $5 Jazz Show 

Club Deluxe

A few years ago, San Francisco pinned its jazz-city hopes on the Fillmore, building a palatial music venue alongside a phalanx of bebop-themed restaurants and statues of — among other things — a guy playing the saxophone. But one of the city's best jazz clubs is a hole-in-the-wall on Haight Street, with bathroom graffiti and cheap door covers ($5 is usually the upper limit). Several times a week, Bay Area musicians convene at Club Deluxe to play two-hour sets that usually devolve into jam sessions. The club's rickety piano and tiny stage recall similar establishments in New York's West Village, but its crowd is unmistakably local.
