The Jazz Foundation is a seed of change. We turned to Jazz, art, and culture as the detonators of this change. We are a Jazz club by the beach, a forum of meaningful expressions and a melting pot of culture in our food and drinks.

Love Jazz Foundation. Great free live music, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere and good drinks. Their tamarind mezcalita is really tasty. On the Malecon, but away from the awful clubs and thankfully you can't hear that horrendous country music bar from the open terrace. They have...More

First of all, the position of the restaurant in the Malecon, is perfect for having a meal with a view, and enjoy the sunset at dinner time, especially for couples eheh. They menu is vegan, and they offer the meat version of the dishes too....More

Hi, Eli1992! Thank you for reviewing us. It seems to us you may have to come back to experience the music. As a Jazz Club it is our priority to send a message of creativity and quality thru the arts. Your comments are very appreciated.

We were pulled in by the music. Great jazz—last night a five piece group with especially talented lead guitar, Sax, and trumpet. Lots of room. Reasonably priced drinks.

Always terrific jazz here, the kind you might expect in a smoky cellar with brick walls and tiny tables. Instead, there's a well designed space open to the sea view and warm breezes. Feels intimate and spacious at the same time. Good acoustics for the...More

Interesting Mexican beers, not experienced elsewhere, good food on a Sunday night, fabulous early evening piano player. Kind service- and they take Visa cards! Wonderful sunset views with about half of space open to sky. We’ll be back on next visit ...

The entrance to this bar is actually a stairway through a door just off of the Malecon, but once you are upstairs, you find that it is in fact ocean front with amazing views. They make real, delicious cocktails which are in contrast to the...More

I wish this place would advertise somewhere, because it's hard to know who is playing when, or that the venue even exists. We only found it by hearing the music as we were walking by. But they have high quality performers, good drinks and snacks,...More
