Jardine’s owner Beena Raja says she will open the popular Plaza area jazz club on December 12th for the KC Confidential holiday wilding and remain open for specific engagements such as the upcoming Julia Othmer and Ida McBeth shows.
Raja stopped short of saying exactly why she fired the staff last week and shuttered the club after Karrin Allyson‘s shows Tuesday. Something about feeling that some staffers were taking advantage of the club. So she changed the locks and cleaned house.
The club is slated to be open on Monday, December 12th at 5:30 p.m. for the KC Confidential bash and be open on a case-by-case basis for the time being. Including for Othmer’s 7:30 p.m. show December 14, Othmer’s two shows at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. December 16, the Burns & McDonnell holiday party December 20 and McBeth’s New Year’s Eve shows December 31. Check Jardine’s calendar for upcoming shows.
"I’m looking forward to 2012," Raja says. "It’s a brand new year. Beena Raja is my name but I’m no king like the name says. But I’m still the queen. Come and see my new chandeliers."
