Ten Ten House of Jazz Set to Open in Danville

Posted:

Danville, VA - When you walk into Ten Ten House of Jazz, you're greeted by the smooth tunes of years past.

R&B classics fused with jazz instrumentals will set the mood at the new restaurant and lounge.

Starting Friday night, live bands will take the stage as guests enjoy homemade Southern cuisine.

"I have a wonderful chef and a wonderful support staff that supports her, and I think we're going to put out a food product here that is really special, " said CEO Jonathan Carter.

Carter is excited to see his dream come to life after 25 years. He tried to open the jazz house at the same location in the 80's, but he was denied.

Now, after a career in medical administration, he says it is a blessing to be doing what he loves.

"I worked those other fields because it provided a livelihood, but this is something I've always wanted to do, " Carter said.

City officials say venues like Ten Ten encourage residents to keep their dollars local instead of traveling out of town for nightlife options.

"Anytime we can expand arts and entertainment, I think it is a very positive thing for the area, " said Councilman Lee Vogler.

Carter just hopes music lovers like him will feel at home at Ten Ten.

"Whether they come for the food or the Jazz, I want them to come, " Carter said. 

Ten Ten's grand opening is Friday at 5 p.m. It will be open every Friday and Saturday after that until 2 a.m.

A business casual-style dress code will be enforced.
