The real deal.

Old school jazz club with great players and an intimate vibe. The $10 cover the night we were there was very reasonable and we still got a table right down front.

The jazz music was great, and the performers were full of energy! Add the incredibly detailed decor, and you have one heck of an ambiance. But that's where the positive review ends. My friends and I went using a Groupon coupon, which promised us a glass of wine and a meal. In reality, we only had two choices for our... More

This place is really cool inside--looks like an old cabaret bar. There is a small stage in the front for the live band and mostly booths line the restaurant. It's not a huge place, so it feels like you are getting a private concert. The seats are at different levels so everyone can see. There is a $10 cover charge... More

Great music, great food, great ambience, just great. We stayed in a hotel just a few blocks away and stumbled upon the House of Jazz by chance. As it was a weekday they were able to get us in and we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

This club is just off Rue Sherbrooke, it has an Art deco ambiance, excellent music and good food, the perfect combination for a great evening with friends. It works very well at many levels (suggested age range 35- 105!) For couples looking for a romantic evening together -yes, for a group of 10 celebrating a birthday- yes, a single person... More

As we had not reserved our table was a bit out the way for viewing but okay for listening to the really good if middle of the road jazz. I had asparagus soup which was nondescript and my husband had the French onion which looked and tasted far better. His main course was unsatisfactory while my jambalaya was good. The... More

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

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.
