The owners of Szechuan Tokyo restaurant are jazz fans. With the seven-days-a-week requirements of operating a large, new restaurant, they didn't get out to the New York clubs like they used to. Worse, there were precious few venues in the greater Hartford area for them to go to see good live jazz. So they decided to give a jazz program a chance. And what a jazz program it's become. In just one year, this venue has attracted names like Brad Leali, Jimmy Greene, Houston Person, Chris and Dan Brubeck, Bob Dorough, Dianne Mower and Norman Johnson, Nat Reeves (and the list goes on and on). Jazz commences every Thursday evening at 7:30 and ends at 10:30. Szechuan Tokyo is conveniently located right off of I-84 exit 41 in the Elmwood section of West Hartford, at the corner of New Britain Avenue and South Main Street.
