BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups
The 700 South Broadway building which houses BB's was known as Phil's Hotel as late as 1969, and has a colorful past. Since its original construction in the mid 1800's, in an area then known as "Frenchtown" with a further 3 story addition at the turn of the century, the location has been used as a home, boarding house, reception hall, merchantile, millinery, transient hotel, bar, diner, and a House of Ill Repute with 37 rooms between its 2nd and 3rd floors.
We're a new company that's been around for a long time. We're brimming with enthusiasm. We're stoked about our staff, our City's music and culture, the food, the drinks, the artworks, the memorabilia, and the whole overall operation
Great music, amazing band selections, average food and minimum choice of soups. Great to celebrate and to dance. We were in group of 6, stayed for about 3 hrs and left with the same impression - too unpleasantly loud compared to other venues. Perfect venue if you enjoy very loud music, and seats towards the back or center are slightly better.

Joe Metzka and his band of All STARS showed amazing LIVE Blues entertainment. Thanks for sharing ALL of your musical talents. Enjoyed the evening at BB's. Appreciate you as well John May!
Our group enjoyed the music and the food. The ribs were meaty, tender and perfectly seasoned. The BBQ sauce was delicious. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. This place is worth checking out.
I come here every time I am in town.. love this place and the people that work here. Good food and music variety. Small place with classic blues bar feel.
Great live music venue (5$ cover charge in cash upon entry) with drinks and food at very reasonable prices. Ribs were super juicy and tasty. We came back the next evening as we enjoyed the athmosphere that much. Unfortunately I have to substract one star as the volume was way too loud for the size of this place on our first visit. Parts of our group had to leave early as they felt it actually painful, even though they liked the music itself.
