This is a wonderful place to see music performed. The music is the priority here. Don't go here if you intend to talk on your phone or to your friends during the actual musical performance. Bennetts Lane Jazz Club treats their performers with respect and expects audience members to do likewise. I've seen some amazing performances here. They have great... More

Bennetts Lane Jazz Club is a must for jazz lovers. The music is always good and you sit a few feet from musicians creating interesting jazz, solo or with others. Things haven't changed much over decades and that's something jazz enthusiasts really like.

I'm a local but have only been to Bennett's Lane a few times. Great intimate venue but being a small slightly awkwardly shaped venue it's tricky when you go to see a really popular act and they have more people in there than usual. However on normal night it's really cool and the acts they get are always fantastic. Also... More

My experiences have always been beyond expectations. I have attended numerous events over the years and never been disappointed. There is always a strong lineup of musicians playing at this venue every week and their offerings are not exclusive of a particular taste in music. Some real classics are on the program from tony-to-time.

Attempted to go here on a Thursday night, but they close early, around 11PM. The next night, they had a listening session for Gordon Webster and Hetty Kate - it was great hearing them live. Fee to enter the club is very reasonable, ~10AUD(?). If you love jazz, make sure you visit this place.

Not really our preferred music but we are open to listen to all kinds of music. Went two nights and both nights had contemporary jazz (not smooth jazz). First night was open seating so we had a table. The second night most of the tables were reserved so we sat along the wall on uncomfortable bar stools. Left at the... More

My second visit to Bennett's Lane and had another great night. Staff are friendly as are the patrons. Small tables are great for sitting back with a glass of wine listening to great Jazz. Recommend it if you're looking for some Jazz in Melbourne

This is a difficult review to write. I am a professional musician and a big fan of jazz and this was my first trip to this club. I would come back as its unfair to think that all performances could be as poor as what I experienced last Saturday night. As part of a large group of musicians that booked... More
