Music and Food: Jazz Evenings At Verbanella



When good friends came to visit, because it was a Thursday, we didn't even have to think where to go. Especially with a pretty evening such as this one was. We went to Caffe Bar Verbanella, since there is live jazz there every Thursday (and now Friday too) of the summer. I have written of this in other summers, but I like to keep doing so as a reminder to new visitors.

It was late June this time, so very long days. Arriving at 8:00 pm, the sky was still light. Just up the lake from us, near the Lido Blu Beach, a few people silently fished. The terrace was still empty at Verbanella; we're speaking of jazz after all, music and crowds start a bit later. 



We ordered our first glasses of wine and I attempted artsy shots of the chardonnays and mountains. From the Verbanella terrace, looking at the lake, the sun sets to your left, over Baveno, causing shadow to slowly overtake the terrace.

I ordered a salad with shrimps, and Giuseppe ordered a Caprese salad. Then, we had roast beef platters and Milanese. And the sun kept setting...




 

 

The band had set themselves up inside the restaurant, and had been playing for a while. At one point the drummer took his drumsticks and moved all around the room and outside, using the sticks on every surface he could. The crowd loved it. 




 And so, another evening at Verbanella. Verbanella is mid-century-modern cool... and it's all authentic here, no re-creation needed. It's always a fun, pleasant evening... And did I mention the sunsets are really beautiful from here? Check their website for up-to-date information on who is playing and when.
