Click here for Podcast: Episode 8: Jazz TX with Brent Watkins
I was recently in San Antonio for a short visit and had the opportunity to meet with Brent Watkins, owner of Jazz TX, a jazz club located in the newly rebuilt Bottling House at the Historic Pearl Brewery. Our conversation took place in the club, during a bright, quiet afternoon, vastly different from the lively atmosphere that happens at night. During our conversation, Brent talked about the conscious decision he made to reflect Texas in the design of the club, but as I walked down the stairs leading to the entrance I felt as though I had stepped into a different city, or perhaps it’s just San Antonio’s changing presence that I noticed when I stepped into Jazz TX. (I love that city!)
The club is a beautiful experience, from the large front door with black pieces sectioning a large pane of glass, the boot shining stand tucked to the left of the entrance, the food and drink, the companionship with those you go with,to the lively and highly skilled music that you will hear.
