Which is not a bad thing. After all it's not a charity. The thing is this. The Jazz Cafe is an iconic venue and for some die hard fans of funk of old we sometime wonder in thinking the 'funk train' will be in full swing and everybody will be grooving. They won't. On any night you won't get 'that... More

Went on Saturday for a friend's birthday. Didn't start too well when we queried the price of drinks bought at the bar downstairs and we're told to forget about and just enjoy ourselves!! Never did get an explanation... Meal was lovely though and our server was a nice young girl. The first band were excellent but the 2nd band wasn't... More

After reading all the bad reviews I was worried. However we were extremely courteously treated. One of the stewards spotted my walking stick got me a chair and placed it near the stage before the crowds got in. Really good show. Loved the atmosphere and the jazz. We visited there on the 26.11.2016.

We had a great time on Sat. 19th. at the Jazz Cafe. Tickets included £20 each towards dinner which helped when paying the bill for four which was reasonable at £131 including service charge. The show was fantastic and we had a good view of the stage from our table on the mezzanine level. The staff were lovely.

I had the best evening in London for a while at Jazz Cafe last week. A great atmosphere on arrival, the service and food in the restaurant was top quality. Great view of the stage and recommend sitting back with a Manhattan!

Just walking in to this newly refurbed venue is to feel like you are on the VIP list. The band who were on had the best 2 guitarists I’ve heard in years. A bit selfish…. Walking up the stairs to the dining area is the best walk a man (or woman) can do if you like eating and music. If... More

Stunningly beautiful venue. Went for a date last week and was lucky enough to bag a table on the balcony overlooking the stage, great view of the show and we had a wonderful time.

Staying in Camden

Neighborhood Profile
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighborhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
