A few friends and I bought tickets in advance for a gig there. When we arrived we were told by the staff that the venue had reached the capacity and they didn't know if they would be able to allow us in - and at least 30 more other people that had bought tickets. Not only they sold more tickets... More

I have been to the jazz cafe twice since the recent refurb and it has a new lease of life. Every aspect has been improved from layout to the sound, lighting and of course had a much needed clean up. I would not have dreamt of eating there before hand but we were so impressed on the first visit we... More

Having visited many times over the years it's great to see the Jazz Café further enhanced by recent refurbishment. Dine upstairs and get a superb view of the stage while enjoying a good dinner. We were looked after on this visit by server Kiri who provided truly excellent table service.

The name Jazz cafe evokes an intimate place to enjoy music and possibly it is if you eat there. Otherwise, we stood for ages in a queue outside, stood inside in a crowd with no clear view of the stage and nondescript recorded music playing, with no indication when the performance might start (it started more than two hours after...

The show's advertised start time - 7pm - bore no relation to the actual start time - 9pm! I got there in good time then spent over 2 hours just standing and waiting. And waiting. And waiting... Once the show started the low stage meant it was really difficult to see anything through a sea of heads - and the... More

We were given fantastic service throughout our meal and the food was genuinely delicious. The food was served quickly and the waiter went out of his way to make a cocktail for me that wasn't on the menu. I enjoyed eating my meal whilst the performance was happening, couldn't fault the singer at all. Overall a lovely night out!!

First time visiting the famous Jazz Cafe and i can honestly say it was a fantastic experience. From the set atmosphere to the welcoming, warm staff and delicious food and cocktails, it was all the perfect package. I loved the fact that whilst dining, the stage was overlooked down from the restaurant and engaging with the live act. Our server... More

Staying in Camden

Neighborhood Profile
Camden
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.
