It was my first time at the jazz cafe to see Grandmaster Flash and what a great night it was.The venue is fantastic for letting you get up close and personal to the acts that are shown there and the atmosphere was superb.We had standing tickets so I can't comment on the food served there but the bar staff seemed...

First time visiting the Jazz Cafe to see Pharoahe Monch as a birthday present to my brother. The venue is intimate as i expected which in my opinion makes it all the better for a concert! I want to see and feel everything that is going on. We were able to grab a seat upstairs as we were quite early... More

Cool intimate venue in a great location in London. The concert was really enjoyable from the balcony above with a nice restaurant. Recommend visiting it whether you live in London or are just visiting.

The venue is intimate as one would expect. It has clearly seen better days. Toilets aren't well signposted. Despite this the gig was amazing - this was down to Pharoahe Monch performance rather than the venue. We went to see Pharoahe Monch and would've happily seen him play in a shed so the venue was not an issue.

When we visited there was two noticeable problems, the food served upstairs was very good and there wasn't enough staff, the bar was really short staffed and the time getting served was frustrating, also the toilets are outside which wasn't a major issue but when it's bitterly cold outside you notice it more, still a great venue and location is...

Food utterly dismal. Bouncers fine despite their reputation. Service terrible. Unhappy staff. Sticky floor.

Staff were very rude. Had a my so nice guy constantly dancing around our party. Asked the bouncer to move him and he just ignored me. The seating area was opened late and we were waiting around for ages. I never went, but apparently the toilets were a trek to get to. On the plus side great music. We went... More

Went here for first time on 15/2 to see Alexander O Neil. Having not been here before it wasn't what I expected it to be like. The place has seen better days. Very old and worn looking. Could do with a bit of renovation. There did not seem to be enough staff serving at the bars considering it was packed... More

Staying in Camden

Neighborhood Profile
Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighborhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
