That’s “sax,” as in saxophone which, granted, is pretty sexy. And though the local and national acts who play at THE HI-HAT supper club may not always have a sax in their lineup, they certainly establish a mood, be it bluesy or boppy, touching or torchy. The Hi-Hat recalls the clubs of the ’30s, with cushy chairs and elegant crescent-shaped booths, with burgundy and pewter tones dominant in drapes, carpet, and upholstery. There’s even an enticing four-course twofer on Tuesday and Wednesday ($58 with a bottle of wine) that is a good introduction to the kitchen: a green salad, an appetizer sampler, a choice of a half-dozen entrées, and crème brûlée for dessert. But the menu is broad enough for all kinds of snacks and light meals, including “the jazz bully’s calamari” and three kinds of wings.
