Fab band. Brand new heavies. Amazing. Just watch the staff as their far too eager to clear your drinks away when you're trying to enjoy the rest of the performance at end from band. They're also far too presumptuous in thinking that your change should be a tip. Not impressed ....

Great evening at the Jazz Cafe in Camden where the Hackney Colliery Band were performing. The band were on form and the jazz audience were buzzing! It got crowded and hot, but there was space and seating upstairs, where you could watch the band and the audience below with a cold drink from the bar. A great venue and a... More

Jazz Cafe drags out mixed reactions from me. The name is misleading - today. Once in a while there are jazz shows - for the most part these days, the live acts are not jazz. Quite disappointing as one would expect that there should be a whole host of jazz artists playing here all the time! The venue itself is... More

Came to the Jazz Cafe for a midweek gig (hip-hop, not jazz). As far as a Camden gig venues go, this is better than most. Door staff were efficient, and you walk straight into one of the bars. There were a number of seats, and service was prompt. Past the first island bar is the main part with the stage.... More

My party booked a table on the restaurant level to hear Ayana Witter-Johnson in November. Excellent show but the ladies room had no toilet paper and only 2 stalls with lighting that worked and none of the 3 members of staff we spoke to early in the evening took any action, conditions were worse later in the evening. Service was... More

Me and my family booked to see a gig at jazz cafe. I called before attending the event to see if under 18s were allowed to attend. Someone who worked there confirmed this was okay providing we got there early and sat upstairs. When we arrived we were refused entry as there restaurant was closed which apparantly meant under 18s... More

After paying 100 pounds for 4 tickets and travelling all the way from Brighton the management refused to let in my 17 and a half yr old nephew, when it clearly states on ticket master that 14 - 18 yr olds are allowed in so long as they are sitting upstairs with an adult. Before booking we also phoned the... More

We went to see Jay Brannan (stunning act) who we'd been waiting to see for quite some time and he was excited to be at this venue, seemingly for the 2nd time round. It was an AWFUL venue - no aircon, and even in October which should be cooler, it was far too hot. In fact one of the audience... More

Small venue, crowded, warm, dance floor so if you have standing ticket choose your attire carefully or you may melt!!. It was a sold out event so I guess at full capacity. However Heatwave were great and excellent atmosphere overall. You can book to eat here but you probably need to get tickets quick as limited seating. Can't comment on... More

Booked a balcony table and this includes a pre-paid main course as part of the ticket price. Had a decent meal and wine while watching a fantastic band headed up by Tony Remy on the lead guitar. A great night in a great venue. Will definitely go back.
