The famed Soho club went through a major remodeling after theater owner Sally Greene bought the place from Pete King.
King and Ronnie Scott opened the joint in the 1960s. It stayed packed with good music and plenty of customers but the floor was sticky with spilled drinks -- and Dizzy Gillespie's throw-up -- so Greene decided it was time for an overhaul, The Telegraph reports.
Aside from the carpet, changes include a slightly redesigned bar, which was also moved to another part of the venue to help the flow of customer traffic.
The red table lights and low ceilings remain, which is intended to keep much of the same feel and all of the same high-quality acoustics.
It will cost at least $46 just to get in the club now though -- $82 in August for shows with Wynton Marsalis and Chick Corea.
Ronnie Scott's reopens Monday with the Monty Alexander Trio.
