When we go to the city it’s usually for day trips, and we head back home before nightfall. On nights when we stay late, tons of options exists for evening entertainment. I want to tell you about one place that tops our short list two reasons: jazz and Japanese food. Yoshi’s has locations in both San Francisco and Oakland. And when we go, we check the tickets deals and can often enjoy the show for around half price. (You’ll see ticket deals from savvy sources below, when available).
Yoshi’s is a state-of-the-art live music club and upscale restaurant, combining great Japanese food and live jazz music from some top level musical artists. Yoshi’s has hosted legendary greats over the years, including Betty Carter, Max Roach, Dizzy Gillespie, Joe Williams, Diana Krall, Branford Marsalis, McCoy Tyner, Harry Connick Jr., Oscar Peterson and others.
These days the jazz artists playing at Yoshi’s are among my favorites, so I check the lineup often. When ticket deals are available, I’ll post them below. Currently the Yoshi’s Oakland 50% off deals are back (see below), via one savvy ticket partners. Check back often for updates.
