New Downtown Entertainment

7th Street Chophouse will turn the mic over to comedians on First Thursday. The upstairs Levels Lounge will host the night of comedy on April 2 at 8 p.m. $10 cover charge. Smooth Jazz saxophonist Jessy J will perform on April 11. $15 cover charge. Call (310) 684-1753 for information and reservations.

Sixth Street Bistro has a new entertainment lineup. Flamenco guitarist Gambiz performs on the first and third Thursdays of the month. Eclectic musician Jamie Carey sings classic rock, country and other genres on Fridays, while Rob the piano man (of Whale & Ale fame) tickles the ivories on Saturday nights. Happy Hour is Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m., with half-price cocktails, beers and appetizers. New look: The restaurant has remodeled to create a strong, sultry feel with a black color scheme for the tables and contemporary artwork to replace the large mural inside. New food, too: New steaks and seafood dishes have been added to the regular menu. Also on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, you can ask your server if the special wine dinner is available, an off-menu impromptu creation of five courses paired with wine. Call (310) 521-8818.

The Whale & Ale features jazz by the Mike Guerrero Trio on Sundays.

Up closer to Gaffey Street, there’s music, dancing, drink, food and merriment regularly at the Copper Room and Babouch Moroccan Restaurant.

I was so sad to see The Copper Room go! We have some great restaurants in town that you did a great job listing, it's just we lost one of the very best. (The restaurant's facade/set up didn't do it justice or showcase what it really was).

P.S. I hope The Copper Room comes back in a better location on 6th or 7th where it would get the attention and business it deserves!
