About Catalina Jazz Club:

The American dream came true for Catalina Popescu in October of 1986 when she and her, now late, husband Bob Popescu created a supper club devoted to serving an experience of superb eats and the shared magic of live performance.  That grand experience began at the door where every night her mother Maria would greet each guest as family and share in their love of music. Housed in Hollywood and decked out in a timeless charm, the club offers a cozy ambience under sparkling stage lights garnished with its signature concoction – Jazz.
The first artist to grace the stage was the masterful flutist and saxophonist Buddy Collette, and ever since then, over the past 37 years, the Catalina Jazz Club has hosted the most illustrious legends of all time – from the powerful puffers of Dizzy Gillespie to the electrified fingers of McCoy Tyner, the bubbly belt of Dee Dee Bridgewater and Lynda Carter, the flirtatious saxophone of Joshua Redman, the slick strumming of Kenny Burrell, the insane drum clinic of Steve Gadd, the romance of Steve Tyrell, and the Masterclass of Mike Stern.
For Catalina, Jazz is our way of life.  It breathes pain.  It knows love.  It dreams hope.  It bleeds courage. Whether we're showcasing Broadway, Soul, Rhythm & Blues, or stand-up comedy, the lesson learned from all the greats who have serenaded our spirits is how to connect to one another.  The Catalina Jazz Club has been honored by A.S.M.A.C., California Jazz Foundation, Los Angeles Jazz Society, and a City of Los Angeles Certificate of Appreciation on their 25th Anniversary, which was awarded by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Los Angeles City Council.  For tickets and info, visit
