The Senator Winebar is an intimate, Parisian inspired bistro serving hearty, delicious comfort food that is rooted in the classics, along with a curated selection of privately imported wines. A brilliant roster of acoustic musicians highlighted by resident blues pianist Julian Fauth and guests, perform various genres every Friday and Saturday night; see full listings on our MUSIC page. The 24 seat room is on top of the original Senator and is outfitted with period furnishings including a 1920’s Prohibition era bar from Cleveland and a classic Heintzman upright piano.

The return of live music to the Senator will be welcomed by patrons who supported and loved the Top O’ the Senator - our internationally renowned jazz club - which flourished from 1991 until it closed in 2005. The success of our music program was featuring great artists in an intimate setting and we now have taken that one step further with the opening of the Winebar.
Seating only 24 in an historic room which dates back to the 1860’s, we highly recommend that guests make dinner and show reservations to guarantee table seating and then watch as the room transforms into an old-fashioned, late-night speakeasy with plenty of audience participation.
The resident artist at the Winebar is the Juno award winning blues pianist, Juian Fauth, who performs Fridays with a featured guest and on Saturday we showcase a wide range of artists in every genre - see listings below. The natural acoustics and sight lines are brilliant in this Parisian "boîte" and the Top O' the Senator is now truly back on top of the original Senator. Cover charges are typically $10 arriving before 9 P.M. $5 after 10 P.M and No Cover after 11 P.M.
