The area
Address
Neighborhood: Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

All of the musicians are top notch professionals. The music was superb. I requested a song “Four” by Miles Davis and the owner/ band leader graciously played it. Make reservations or get there early because they have specific hours for food and music. If you want good jazz played by good musicians then this is the place to go. Don’t get caught up in the reviewers who go there to rate the food and ambiance. It’s just what it is a great place to go hang out and hear good jazz in Venice

If you are a jazz fan the Venice Jazz Club can’t be missed. It’s a small venue less than 5 minutes from the Ca’ Rezzonico water bus station in Dorsoduro district. You can also get to it from either the Rialto or Academia bridge, just will need to walk further.
The venue is small and intimate. Music starts at 9. We did not have a reservation but if you do reserve ahead of time you’ll have a better table. Best way to reserve is email the venue. Limited food is served 7:30-8:30. It stops then because Frederico, who will greet and take your order is also the piano player. Food options are basically lasagna, risotto, and a cheese and meat tray. We had the meat/cheese tray. Big serving for two
Now for the music. 5star. Each of the musicians were at the top of their craft. I’m a musician myself and I appreciate the the art of the craft.
Piano, stand up bass, drum kit, and guitar musicians the night we were attending
Frederico, not only being a great musician, he was a humorous and very engaging emcee.
This is a great night of fun. Take a night away from all the touristy things that Venice offers and relax and smile for a couple of hours

100% worth a visit. Everything about the club makes for a memorable night - the music, the ambience and positive vibes. It was definitely one of the best nights we’ve had in a long time and the musicians’ enthusiasm seeped into the entire audience.

The experience in here has been "interesting", but not in a positive way: the resident band was ok, the place itself is cool and jazzy looking, the owner seemed pleasing in the beginning, saying every table was booked, but there was a chance if we could have tried later in the evening.
So we went back around 22.30, there was a table available, a bit hidden by a column -several of them are- but, that's jazz baby, you just need your ears to enjoy; we found out there was a ticket of 20€ to pay, which sounds fair if you know it in advance, but no one told us before.
The worst part has been at the end: after 30-40 minutes the band finished to play, they all disappeared, and in another 15 minutes we have been asked to leave, for the place was closing. Before midnight! A so called jazz club...
Maybe good to trick tourists arriving to Venice.

Whoever loves live music should pay the Venice Jazz Club a visit. The band around the owner Frederico is very talented and and can easily transfer her enthusiasm for jazz to the audience. The club has a great atmosphere, We also had dinner at the club. The small selection of dishes tasted delicious. We will for sure be back.

Wow, we had a fabulous night at Venice Jazz Club. Frederico and his staff were very welcoming, friendly and attentive.

20 Euros each with a free drink was good value for money and we had the meat/cheese platter which was also good value and lovely to munch on throughout the evening whilst drinking prosecco.

Frederico's band are first class. We love jazz music and they did not disappoint. All extremely talented musicians and the drummers solo was out of this world.

We loved the intimacy of the venue and felt as though we were visiting old friends, even though it was our first visit.

From the outside, the venue is totally understated and you could easily walk by. But when you enter it opens up into a really cool place and we loved every minute of it.

The next morning we took a Gondola ride and the Gondola man took us past the jazz club and told us that Frederico is his friend and we all remarked on what an amazing musician and host he is.

Venice was magical for us and it really topped off my 50th birthday to spend our last night at the Jazz Club. I am sure we will return one day and we will certainly return to the club.

Grazie mille!

We went on our last night in Venice hoping for a great final memory and we weren’t disappointed. We saw the resident VJC band and they were all great musicians that played great together. Their music was a great selection of Jazz Classics and Blues and were really great entertainment. Thoroughly recommend this for a great night although I’d say book early because I would expect it to be in high demand!

When people describe their visits to Venice they talk about canals, gondolas and St. Mark’s Cathedral. When I think of Venice I transport into The Venice Jazz Club and get enveloped by the magical sounds of jazz and an incredible ambience of the club. The Venice Jazz Club is truly a unique place that makes you fall in love with Jazz forever! Thank you Federico, Nicola, Peter, Marco and Max for giving us this amazing experience, for charing with us your magic world, you are incredibly talented! Special thanks to the staff for their service! We will definitely come back and it’s absolutely the place to spend a memorable evening when in Venice!

This was our third visit to this fabulous little club. The welcome is always warm and the musicians are talented.

Check the website in advance as the schedules change (like everything just now) but book in advance if you can.

€66 euros for two including pasta and a bottle of wine. Great value night out.

If you like jazz then go immediately. If not the go elsewhere as this is a place for listening not chatting!
