We had the good fortune of going to this great jazz club and listening to a really good trompetist Juan Cruz de Urquiza and his band during our short stay in Buenos Aires. It is a world class jazz joint for jazz lovers. The atmosphere is amazing.

The place seems unattractive but looks can be deceiving. Perhaps the unpretentious furniture allows for real ambience for jazz music. I heard a fantastic recreation of Ella and Louis by a very talented group and a gifted singer. Great music, and a champagne bottle for under US$30 for two.

Thelonious is a "sweet li'l jazz spot". The bad wasn't particularly good on the night we went, but it was definitely real jazz. The acoustics are pretty good, even up close. It's small, so reservations are almost a must, although the small bar scene seemed quite interesting if you're traveling alone. The most interesting thing about Thelonious was the crowd.... More

This place is awesome. Good music, good ambience and so on. The thing is they have this waiter (the one with glasses) that was very unprofessional and rude since the beggining of the night. He asked for tips (of at least 10%). He put his hands on the table when talking to people, to say the least. When we left... More

I was hoping to stumble into this jazz club on my visit and thankfully it happened. The photos online do not do this place any favors. It's much nicer in person. The ceilings must be at least 15 feet high, exposed brick, wood floors, 2.top tables lined neatly next to each other, easy lighting and a very pleasant wait staff.... More

With the jazz scene developng in Buenos Aires this is definitely a club to visit. The place itself is very cosy with a small bar and tables around the room. Don't miss the entrance, it's one flight up. As a solo traveller I got to meet Argentines in the club. They are always open and warm to tourists. On the... More

Thelonius is well worth a visit if you are a jazz fan visiting BA. The venue is located on the first floor and not that well signed. The staff are pretty chilled and visitor friendly. The food menu is very limited - mainly pizzas. Unfortunately these don't compare with Pizza Express in London. Drinks are reasonably priced. The venue is... More

We went there last night (Friday) and were really very happy with the entertainment. The first band was a young band. Barbie Martinez was the singer with a great voice and a brilliant band. The woman on piano was so good. Barbie was very friendly and after she had finished she chatted with us about her music and told us... More

Music culture in B.A. is really top notch and this is one of the best clubs with a warm atmosphere and a very good agenda. Prices are reasonable compared to European standard and the food menu is not very wide but the pizza we had was really good. Waiters are not the most skilled in town.. Also check out Notorius,...

The last time we visited here the band was average at best so I was not thrilled to go back but it was a Led Zep tribute band and my husband really wanted to go. So we made a reservation and off we went. Got there at 9:30 and show started at 10:00. It was packed. And rightly so, these... More
