Sam First is a jazz club and cocktail bar, a few minutes walk from the LAX terminals. Featuring serious drinks, local beers, and fine wines, spectacular first class lounge-of-your-dreams styling, and world-class modern and straight-ahead jazz.

Sam, the man, was an old-world tailor who led his family out of the wilderness, and whose smile warmed his grandson’s heart.
