Capitol Jazzfest

For people familiar with the downtown Regina retail scene, the name Loggie’s Shoes would doubtlessly ring a bell. The family run business operated for over 90 years before closing in April 2014.

The space at 1843 Hamilton St. didn’t stay vacant for long, though. Instead, some significant renovations were undertaken and the Capitol Jazz Club & Tapas Bar opened in its place.

Our esteemed dining critic has written favourably about the new downtown nightspot. In addition to their food and drink offerings, the Capitol hosts live jazz by local groups on Tuesday and Saturday night.

This weekend, the Capitol is presenting a mini jazz festival. Below is the line-up information I have, and if you want to check out the menu and whatnot, here’s a link to the Capitol website.

One thought on “Capitol Jazzfest”

  1. I’d like to go here sometime, like a 1920s baseball star, but I’m very much in an anti-fashionable mood as of late. And I really don;t want to inflict that upon them. Modern fashion is fragile.
