While technically not a blues bar, but a jazz restaurant, Shanghai Jazz is just too good not to have on this list. It is a critically acclaimed restaurant, having received great Zagat ratings.
Not only is their jazz music top of the line, they pair the mellow music with some of the finest chinese food in New Jersey. Shanghai Jazz has performers every day of the week except Monday. Tuesday-Thursday music from 7:00 - 9:30, Friday 6:30 & 8:30 seating, Saturday 6:30 & 8:45 seating, lastly Sunday music from 6:00 - 8:30.
