NYC-style Jazz Bar: Central gave a warm welcome to STUDIO, a dedicated jazz bar that invites sultry artists and DJs to take the stage in the evenings.

Look & Feel: The experience inside this 2,000-square-foot venue sets out to transport tipplers to the supposedly saucy jazz clubs of 1950s New York City — think sleek booths, dark wood and lots of shiny copper.

On the Menu: The bar menu keeps with the throwback feel and specializes in classic cocktails, such as vintage whisky, boutique Champagnes, martinis and more. While STUDIO invites international acts throughout the year, the bar also has its own in-house band with jazz vocalist Jennifer Palor on the mic.

Great For: After work drinks, dates, a classy night out.

FYI: STUDIO is the brainchild of Xuan Mu, the head of Maximal Concepts, who has branched out on this independent project.
