“Superb jazz venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This place is a hidden gem.
The three of us went on Friday night in May 2013.
Spacious and cosy venue.
All sat at a table which was up close to the band.
Enjoyed the superb and lively sound.
Liked the simple wine list & friendly staff.
Rita Satch & the band performed.
All had a fantastic time at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club!

“Sublime Music at Bennetts Lane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great intimate little venue. Bar facilities. Situated in a quiet little laneway, which could be easily missed. Excellent array of artists. Visited last night, fabulous evening of jazz - Gemma Turvey & Trio with special guest Craig Beard. Wonderful, wonderful night's entertainment in a great little space. Lois

“Excellent jazz venue in Melbourne's heart”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

A memorable experience here last Monday night with superb musicians who played til just before midnight. Lighting was excellent for photography night shots. Authentic jaxx clubs are hard to find but Bennetts Lane is the real deal. Bravo!

“Excellent venue with great acts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Went here twice last week (Feb 2012) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
A little hard to find at first, on Little Lonsdale with the alley only signposted on the eastern side.
The second show (David Dower) was cosy, intimate and thoroughly enjoyable.
