Basements and jazz are two things Miami isn’t known for in the slightest. However, you’ll find both at Le Chat Noir, a fantastic Downtown spot for anyone who appreciates live jazz and wine below sea level. You come to this dark little basement for the music, since talking during a performance could earn you a reprimand from the owner. But besides the tunes, this is just a great place to get away from the Miami nightlife grind of headache-inducing DJs and grossly expensive bottle service.
