“Great venue just keeps getting better.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

It had been a while between visits to Jammin Java (one of the Metro DC areas top 4 venues). The new lobby bar makes it 1000% more comfortable for the early arrivals who want first is to grab great seats.

I was there to see an internationally acclaimed artist - Pierre Bensusan - and was able to take advantage of another relatively new feature. Jammin Java now offers reserved seating in two areas - front of the stage and in a slightly elevated space. Even though the venue is small and intimate (approx 200 seats) the opportunity to book the best seats in advance is great for fans.

The light menu continues to offer fresh hand crafted sandwiches, salads, and some cool chilli's. With their full bar you can sip you poison preference, have a bottle of wine, or take advantage of the name sake menu of coffees, espressos, etc.

The Brindley Brothers have set the bar for the music and club scene with great offerings for families with kidos, live music from world class artists, and local artists and bands looking to perfect their craft.

So - bottom line the Best gets better. Check it out.

“Nice listening venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Jammin Java is a great venue to enjoy live music. By day it is a coffee and sandwich shop but by night the back room turns into a listening room that seats about 200 people highlighting musicians from all over the country. We recently went to see Ellis Paul and it was a great experience. The food is slightly above your typical bar food with unique chili dishes, gourmet hot dogs and sandwiches. Many of the servers show the perfect amount of indifference you would see at a NYC music venue and they are excellent at bringing food and drinks to the patrons without interrupting the musical experience. If you like good music in a nice setting check out Jammin Java.

Love this venue. The staff is always very nice. We have a great time every time we go- about 8 to 10 times a year.

“Not my cup”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012 via mobile

This place is not as it appears. I went to a show there that was shut down. If you like alternate calm music its for you but I'm not a sleep at the wheel. I thought the whole place needed a facelift as warehouse chick is not for me but may be good for you

“Awesome venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

I loved that the doors open at 7 pm and there's music all night! There's seating if you want it, or you can get close to the stage. The bartenders are very nice, and the band members hang out with the audience after their sets.
