Have been coming here fairly regularly, especially since becoming a member. It does have a great atmosphere and its sense of history of the great artists that have played there somehow resonates around you. We became members to stand a chance of seeing particular big names when they come over to London. Sometimes an artist will squeeze in the one... More

We found that the "main" part of the club was sold out for the evening, so we went to the upstairs club for some great Cuban music. Great music, friendly staff, and a good opportunity to see one of London's truly premier music venues. Check it out!

No matter who is playing (and I've seen some amazing people pre and post fame) it's always a great atmosphere here, it's small, it's stayed authentic.

Been a member for a few years, but standards have deteriorated, making it difficult to justify the annual fee. Service and food are mediocre and overpriced. Standard seating is a joke.

Visiting London and I had to see Ronnie Scott's. I have heard of it for its great jazz. I got last minute tickets and found the seating was a little cramped as it was towards the back. Better to book early and get seats with more leg room towards the front. The jazz quartet playing were very good! Food wise... More

I won tickets to see Steps Ahead at Ronnie Scott's and took my girlfriend (who had been before). Simply brilliant. I'm not a big jazz fan but whereas I wouldn't buy an album, I will definitely go back here again as the experience was amazing. Super friendly staff, great atmosphere and the musicians were a revelation. One more off the... More

Ronnie Scotts speaks for itself. Intimate, atmospheric with a touch of class. We went and watched Naturally Seven which as usual didn't disappoint. Rick Aisley was also in the audience and did a duet ( planned of course ) Didn't have any food however the bartenders were very attentive and the selection of drinks was vast. Overall a great place... More

I lived 40 years in London but for some reason never came here. What I had missed. We saw Pat Metheny here on 30th June. Seen him many times but never in such an intimate venue. It was truly delightful. Our table was 15 feet from the stage ( 5 metres had we stayed in the EU) and the sound... More

Clearly, it is one of London’s cultural gems. No other London club offers big-name international jazz acts in the style of Ronnie's. The acts are presented in a venue that retains its swinging London charm and intimacy. As for the dining experience, the menu at Ronnie's is fairly limited but the food is of a very good standard - for... More

Great atmosphere and a really uplifting experience you can't help but tap along. The band we saw were very entertaining and seriously good musicians. Polite hard working staff. However watch out, if you don't use the waiter/waitress services to order your drinks and go to the bar yourself, you will still be charged a "service charge".

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
