Mel Tormé was a jazz singer who worked at his craft steadily from the ’40s to the ’90s, primarily in nightclubs and concert halls. In his 1988 autobiography, It Wasn’t All Velvet (its title a reference to his nickname, “The Velvet Fog,” bestowed upon him by a disc jockey in the ’40s to describe his smooth, husky, wide-ranging voice), he mentioned a wish that had he been born ten years earlier, that is, in 1915 rather than 1925 he would have been a contemporary of Frank Sinatra, a full-fledged big-band singer.

COVER CHARGES apply when Wilfs features live music in our dining room and bar area – Wednesday – Saturday, 7pm.
Quite simply, the cover charge is equity paid directly to the artists that you are enjoying each night at Wilfs. Our new policy includes a $5 charge to all dining in our main dining room. We thank you in advance for your support of insuring equity for all.

When you join us for drinks or dinner and plan on leaving before the 7pm music starts, we won’t ask for a cover charge. That does not mean you can come early and avoid paying the cover – we want to make sure our musicians are paid for their performance. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask your host.
