The Jewell – The Class of the Capital District

I first went to the Jewell about 3 months ago. Usually my trips to The Capital District either involve some great live music at The Slowdown, or me feeling really old at Beer Can Alley. Increasingly I am trying to avoid that “feeling really old” feeling (I’m 30, I’m not old I know but it’s getting out of the college-club scene slowly but surely), and The Jewell satisfies that nicely. If you like intimate live music experiences, and anything from Jazz to folk rock, then you will love The Jewell. The venue itself, as you can see from the photos, is gorgeously designed. Wide-stage, beautifully-lit, and in a big open room, where you are level with the musicians. It strikes just the right balance of venue, bar, and jazz-club, and honestly, a nice modern jazz-club/acoustic venue had been sorely missing from downtown Omaha (looking at you Omaha Lounge). This is a welcomed new addition to the city-scene and I hope you try this place out to show your support. And if you want to get away from the kids and crowds this weekend, come to The Jewell and enjoy a nice relaxing evening, and feel whatever age you want to feel.
