Rum&Sugar Bar’s Free Jazz Nights

Rum&Sugar Bar seeks to spread the word around the neighborhood about its free jazz nights.

Rum&Sugar opened in December 2016, but 823 Geary has been a bar for over 70 years. It went through different hands and different stages from historical if slightly shady Castle Club bar, to a beautiful hidden pearl of Tenderloin, and a craft cocktail lounge with a full bar and a particular focus on rum.

However, owners Sergey Yushin and Olga Zhuravskaya felt like something was missing from the picture.

“This city lives and breathes jazz. So many talented musicians and artists among our close friends, the idea to host jazz nights and music events just came naturally,” says Olga Zhuravskaya, one of the owners.

What began with on and off free jazz gigs eventually turned into a steady program of concerts twice a week, featuring jazz bands from all over the Bay Area, such as Josh Jones Latin Jazz, Bill Hampton’s Trio, Erik Egol, Rick and Vik, Nirav Sanghani’s Pacific Four, Jean Ramirez, Juniper Jazz Band, Silver Bell Jazz and many more.

At first, we got a lot of help with our line-up from the incredible Pascal Bokar of Savanna Jazz. But then band leaders started contacting us on their own; the latest addition has been WestSude Jazz, and those musicians are amazing!
We used to hold two jazz nights: Friday and Saturday, but eventually, we realized that live music has such an unbelievable therapeutic impact on the neighborhood, and our jazz program became so extensive, that we decided to go all in and add a third jazz day to the calendar. And now we are happy to announce that we are adding Thursday as a third jazz day. "
