There are half a dozen jazz clubs in the city, but this attracts the best talent by far. I first discovered it quite recently (2011) when a jazz aficionado friend came to town. I've been a regular ever since. The best of Montreal's jazz talent loves to perform there & there's a show 7 nights a week. I go there... More

Very nice old style jazz club. Great atmosphere, good jazz and excellent food. When we visited the place was packed so I recommend reserving in advance.

I have been to the House of Jazz for lunch twice now, and I will definitely go back. The good isn't great, but I love their chicken wings. The ribs are pretty good too. There is no live music at lunchtime, so I cannot speak for the entertainment. However, I do love the quirky decor with a heavy vintage/retro influence.... More

We (two couples) went on a discounted voucher through Travelzoo, and after reading the reviews weren't sure what to expect. No worries though, it was a lovely evening out. The service was perfect and we never felt neglected or rushed. Our waiter spent extra time talking with us. Food was very good, we had chicken and ribs, steak and filet... More

Dh and I were given a 1 for 2 coupon for this place, meaning, our gift giver paid $50 for us to use up to $100 on the coupon. Pros: Nice decor, ambiance, good service, music was fun. I'm not into jazz, but the 6 piece band played jazz that was easy on the ears, as well as other genres.... More

Its a multi level restaurant thats really appealing with its huges chandeliers and pictures of jazz greats from past eras. I find it to be a very appealing and welcoming place. The two bands I heard were entertaining but that could be the luck of the draw I suppose as some musicians are better than others and some music appeals... More

Great talent, fun and classy. Food is great but avoid the stakes... If you get a stake get the filet mignon. Next time we will eat elsewhere.

This place was awful. $75 down the drain. Jazz was mediocre and was more like a basic band butchering songs by Prince and other artists. The instrumentals were ok but the singing was terrible. The food was ok. Service was just plain odd. Slow and weird. When we were seated, the host forgot to give us our menus, even though... More

We tried this place because we got a coupon for food and drinks and we were very pleased. The food is ok, ribs and chicken, southern food, but the drinks were amazing! The service was professional and friendly, and we just loved the band. The multi-tiered space is beautifully decorated and it allows for everyone to enjoy the show no... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
