With distressed mirrors and old French film posters on the walls, red leather booths, and live jazz, Jules Bistro feels less like a live music spot on St. Marks, and more like a place you’d find when you get into Paris after other spots have closed. Bands play in the dining room every night, and there’s live Caribbean music during brunch on Sundays.
Jules Bistro is permanently closed.
