Jazz at Pearl's, a nightclub located on Nob Hill between downtown San Francisco and the bay, closed in late 2008 after closing and reopening several times. This Chinatown establishment functioned as a weekend gathering place for many visitors over the years. The change in ownership in 2003 brought about a 1930's vibe with Spanish fare which earned the club a mention in Conde Nast as a Top 30 Club Worldwide.
The jazz club was owned by local singer, Kim Nalley and her husband, Steve Sheraton, a comedian, and generally featured a house trio and other guest artists. Jazz at Pearl's had been known as a North Beach hotspot and the last full-time jazz club in the area. Before closing, the club touted its new, upgraded décor and more affordable menu, including desserts, entrees, and appetizers. It was voted by locals as one of the top two jazz clubs in 2009.
Jazz at Pearl's is located 25 minutes north of the San Francisco International Airport by car and is within walking distance of several area attractions: Cable Car Museum, Chinese Historical Society of America, and San Francisco Chinatown Ghost Tour. Other nearby attractions include the Coit Tower, Aquarium of the Bay, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, and the Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf.
