Ortlieb's Jazz Haus. 847 N 3d st. 922-1035. [Tucked in a desolate corner on the edge of Philadelphia's hipsterish Northern Liberties neighborhood, Ortlieb's is an easy joint to miss. A dozen blocks from Independence Hall, it is centuries removed from the city's tidy Colonial core. Once the lunchroom for the now-shuttered Ortlieb's brewery, with dark wood walls and latticed wooden beam ceiling, it still has the cozy feel of a Bavarian hunting lodge, complete with a mounted buffalo head peering over the drummer's shoulder.
But once you pass through the nondescript door, the club makes up for its lederhosen legacy with a bona fide jazz cool that attracts, Boone says, "some pretty heavy cats." ]
