Laura Rose, played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, lives in Harlem, around the corner from a jazz bar that becomes a central location in the film. In the movie, many jazz greats perform in the first floor club, and Lionel gets his first introduction to the music genre here. The location for the jazz club was a building at 773 St. Nicholas Avenue, which unfortunately burned down during the filming of the movie.
