We’re big fans of the Pickle Room around here. Did you know that the John Schnackenberg and Cougar Estrada play live jazz the third Saturday of each month at Lovejoy’s Pickle Room? There’s no cover charge, and they play from 8:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m.
Try the Mai Tai or the Moscow Mule along with the Chinese/Deli Reuben Egg Roll (sounds weird but trust us, it’s amazing!) and the delicious fried rice.
Lovejoy’s Pickle Room is located at 126 E. Canon Perdido St.
Right next door the sister restaurant Three Pickles Deli has a new incarnation at night. It transforms into a sushi bar Tsukemono (which we hear means “pickled things” in Japanese). Open after 6 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, you can eat in the sushi bar, or they’ll bring your favorite sushi to you at the Pickle Room.
