From Nina Buck, Palm Court Jazz Cafe

I am very sad to announce that Palm Court Jazz Cafe will permanently close it’s doors on June 2 after 35 years of music, food and fun.

The initial concept of the Palm Court was to create an atmosphere reminiscent of a time gone by when dining and listening to music could be enjoyed and appreciated together.

My husband George Buck was instrumental in supporting me in this project.  Without George Buck there would have been no Palm Court.  George established the Jazzology/GHB Jazz Foundation to insure that the many areas of American music would endure in perpetuity.  His legacy lives on with Jazzology/GHB  residing in same building as Palm Court.

Over the years the Palm Court has featured many of New Orleans greatest musicians and vocalists. Performing in a room inspired by the 30’s and 40’s.  A mahogany bar, Steinway piano, historic collection of photos.

We are proud to have created a venue and atmosphere which in it’s way is unique.

A feeling of family exists among the musicians, staff and patrons who have all made the place very special. However I would like to make special mention of Kathy Edegran for her loyalty, business acumen, public relations and her tenacity to never give up.

Another special mention is to Bobby Davis my excellent Chef who has been with me for many years and created  fine food in the kitchen and trained many young people over the years

We regret this decision but we have had to make it for a variety of reasons financial and rising costs which have made it impossible for us to continue and maintain our high standards

So thank you all for your love and support of the Palm Court Jazz Cafe over the years.

This will close in 20 seconds
