Absolutely brilliant jazz club in on the Shore of Houhai Lake. Great and reasonably priced drinks, super friendly staff and best of all real high quality live jazz. The night we went there was no door charge. I think live music is only Thurs - Sun but check with the venue. Highly recommend a visit to this live jazz bar.... More

If you appreciate great jazz, you must visit this place. But is right on a beautiful lake and has great beer at reasonable prices.

From their first song, I couldn't take my eyes off them as I had never seen such an amazing... More

We found a recommendation in our Lonely Planet Guide book and decided to check it out. Truly awesome! Live jazz performed by great musicians, and anyone could enter the stage and jam along after a while, if they felt up for the task.
