They were still moving a few pieces of furniture around, but the much-anticipated Jazziz Nightlife opened last week in the space that was formerly Zed 451 (and eons before that, the Cartoon Museum). Jazziz Nightlife is the Next Big Thing for dynamic Jazziz magazine publisher and radiologist Michael Fagien, who had a jazz club at the Hard Rock in Broward County a few years ago. But this time Fagien thinks he may have hit the jackpot, with the upscale Mizner location—and its synergy with the Center for the Arts’ black box theater and amphitheater, where he also plans to book major music acts.
Last week the restaurant was not yet operational, but the idea was there: a way fun multi-faceted club with an 11,000-square foot restaurant space, including private dining, a stage, a cigar bar and lounge and a champagne celebration room. Singer/songwriter Gino Vannelli rocked the packed house on the two opening nights, and guitar legend Al Dimeola was there as well (pictured here with Michael and Zakiya Fagien and Gino Vanelli) Upcoming acts include Nicole Henry (April 3 and 4); Molly Ringwald (May 1 and 2); and Larry Carlton (May 29 and 30). Call 561/910-7721 or visit jazziz.com for a full schedule.
We are rooting for Michael Fagien and Jazziz; watch this space for updates!
