Great place to enjoy good 7 band live music 'Waves'. March visit has an excellent band. Great entertaining. Great mixologist on cocktails. Place to relax and enjoy 3-4 hours of good tunes with good music

In the evening there was a performance done by Wave group. I is a live band from around the world and they play a world music... to be honest, I was really fascinated by the group... The atmosphere was fantastic and you have really a problem to sit on your chair :)

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Jazz Bar! We got there at 7:30, and the wait staff was still setting up. So, service was not that great. We had reservations, but no one greeted us. When we told the bartender we had reservations, he told us to sit wherever we liked. We took one of the appetizer menus from a... More

Last night of guest Dutch chef. Excellent food but very expensive. Wine was very overpriced with the least expensive starting at over £50.00 and it was not very good. Lively band which was more Middle of the road than jazz but very good. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Currently the Jazz bar has Wilco Berends 1 star Michelin chef from Holland. Unfortunately this "restaurant" is not fit for purpose. You cannot see the menu due to bad lighting nor hear yourself think due to the horrible acoustics in the restaurant area. The wine list has a house red, house white and house rose available by glass, caraf or... More

The Jazz Bar is very upmarket with awesome food. On one occasion I ate the "Combination of Dutch Veal" - slowly cooked Dutch milked veal tenderloin and veal cheeks, mushroom and pistachio ragout, roasted pumpkin, veal jus - absolutely delicious! Another time I had the "Ricotta and spinach" also delicious followed by the Sticky toffee pudding (the delivery is entertaining... More

Disappointing. It's a nice bar, quite stylish with seating arranged to optimise the view of the stage and with dining tables off to one side. We went for dinner and the tenderloin with chunky fries and green beans (165dhs) was delicious. But, if I'm going to a *jazz* bar, then I would expect some, er, jazz. Instead there was a... More

Went here with friends on a busy Friday night to see the new band and it was a fantastic night!
