CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS (SEE UPDATE BELOW.) Located in the historic Hillcrest neighborhood and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Afterthought (with table seating for approximately 100 in the bar) and its adjoining restaurant occupy a building which served as the town hall for Pulaski Heights before its 1916 annexation by Little Rock. A full menu (shown at afterthoughtbistroandbar.com) is available in the adults-only club during normal restaurant hours. The Arkansas Jazz Heritage Foundation/Arkansas Jazz Hall of Fame holds an occasional meet-and-greet (as well as its special, quarterly, and annual board meetings) at The Afterthought because it is the only Little Rock venue which has presented live jazz continuously - at least once a week - since the 1970s. (That distinction earned the iconic club a place on the map in the first print edition of the Encyclopedia of Arkansas Music, published in September 2013 by the Central Arkansas Library System's Butler Center for Arkansas Studies.) During cold weather, The Afterthought's double-sided fireplace adds warmth to the intimate venue originally designed specifically for jazz.
