Jazz and food is a natural pairing that comes together at this vintage themed bistro bar.
With the opening of Trumpet in The Village, the crew at TRI Concepts is back to defend their position as one of the leading suppliers of vintage ambiance in Lebanon. TRI’s Gatsby, a 1920’s themed speakeasy on Uruguay Street, was among the cluster hard hit bars following a decline in the downtown area’s nightlife scene. Its eventual closure however allowed for a new beginning.
In many ways the new Trumpet picks up where the Gatsby left off. Inside the venue the 1920’s has become the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s or 60’s. The décor incorporates a variety of hanging portraits that pay tribute to jazz heroes of the genera’s golden age. It’s a sort of Hard Rock Café of bebop where musicians from Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong to Ray Charles and BB King look over guests as they unwind.
The vintage theme carries on into the menu with dishes such as Armstrong’s Choice steak platter and the Sound Bites spinach dip. Trumpet has placed extra emphasis on developing their menu and eating experience compared to the average bistro-pub. The dining area is at least somewhat spacious and the elevated inner deck makes for a comfortable vantage point to lounge around and people watch over drinks. The Gin Gin Mule and the house special, the Trumpet Hugo, are most recommended by regular patrons. Those that arrive early not only get to pick the best seating, they can enjoy the pub in its prime when jazzy tunes fill the air with ambiance before the DJ takes over.
