10. ) JJ's Blues Lounge

Founded in 1983 by June Stanley and her brother, Max, JJ's became a magnet for musicians and
blues-lovers in the Bay Area.

The layout of the place engraved itself on blues fans -- a narrow 18-foot wide room that
stretched far back from the street. A 12-by-12 stage at the front could seat a dozen musicians
if they got along, maybe four if they didn't.

During the boom of the 1990s, JJ's also had locations in downtown San Jose and Mountain View.
Cementing its place in the city's cultural landscape, the bar sponsored a downtown blues

More importantly, it became a place where blues artists could develop their craft and put bands
together: Lara Price, for instance, credited JJ's for a musical education.
Blues bars do not make money on the music. Instead, they sell drinks or food. JJ's has only
drinks. (Call 408-243-6441)

The dim lighting, modern décor and recessed, ambient lounge area hint that you won't find any ongoing dart games or air hockey in the back.

And the bar definitely lives up to its name, serving large, crisp, stiff martinis that just might send you soaring if you guzzle one too many.
