There is a $10 cover charge.
Faustina will create a special small plate menu, and General Manager Hillary Merrill's spring cocktail menu will be rolled out for the occasion.
Seating is limited and reservations are highly suggested.
"We've even made a hot new cocktail just in time for this called the Pineapple Creme," said Hillary Merrill, general manager and chief mixologist, in a release. "It's made with vanilla vodka, Sauvignon Blanc and pineapple juice....it's pretty darn good!" Les Groove Artistes features John Flanders, Ken Critchfield, Jim Guss and Marty Steinberg. They play a combination of contemporary jazz, jazz standards and some original songs. Faustina is located at 454 East, 300 South in Salt Lake and can be reached at 801-746-4441.
