For a taste of the local jazz scene in an upscale dining and entertainment facility, look no further than Fort Wayne's own Club Soda, located in the heart of downtown. Club Soda has repeatedly been voted as the best jazz club and martini bar in the Fort Wayne area.
Patrons consistently describe this night club experience like something out of the windy city. You may immediately step inside and forget you are in Indiana. Listen to a live show here or visit any day or night of the week for a delectable meal. Club Soda offers both lunch and dinner options, along with a full bar and their own signature martinis.
From greens, to steak and chops, and fish and fowl -- menu items here will delight nearly any palate. Wash your meal down with a selection from the Club Soda bar, which includes house wines and signature cocktails such as Club Soda's own 'Cosmopolitan' or 'Purple Haze.'
Live shows are offered Thursdays starting at 6:30 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays starting at 9:30 p.m. Close your eyes during one of the many performances and find yourself transported back to the era of Frank Sinatra and his rat pack.
