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.
