Jay Brown at Delux

When we called over to Delux to find out why it is frequent visitors to this downtown lounge like the way Jay Brown gets down, we spoke to a co-worker who at first said it might be too hard to give us the gist because he thinks of the guy (with whom he competes for tips) as a brother. "Best person I've ever worked with" was the direct quote. Asked why drinkers like to indulge in Brown's services, we learned that the man at hand maintains the essential tools it takes to tend bar the right way: "He's funny, energetic and quick. He has a certain charm."
