Judson's Live Experience

Our riff on the legendary listening rooms of the world’s most musical cities, Judson’s Live is an intimate artistic oasis. Designed with stellar acoustics in mind, artists of all genres sound their most impressive in this elevated and inviting space, surrounded by table-style seating for 150. The atmosphere is low-key with a stylish slant, anchored by a grand piano once belonging to Judson Green, the late jazz musician, beloved Dr. Phillips Center board member.

Order from a curated scratch-kitchen menu of small shareable plates, developed by our executive chef Jason Klingensmith. Enjoy a craft cocktail or beverage from our extensive brown spirits menu, or delve into exceptional wine offerings hand-selected by our in-house sommelier.
