I had a great evening at Half Note. Music was great, comfortable, good acoustics, great wine, super atmosphere. Looks like there are a lot of regulars there - come early to get a good seat.

We made reservations online for 2 events. Very happy with the music. We were not very happy with the seating arrangements since we could not do that online. I guess you have to be a local or be there in person.

A music club in which one can enjoy alternative ‘faces’ of good art. From the authentic music of the legendary Kostas Hatzis (Greek: Κώστας Χατζής) to the enchanting voice of beautiful Fotini Darra (Greek: Φωτεινή Δάρρα). Many international world class musicians from all over the world are also often hosted in this established venue at the heart of the capital city.

Inspiring atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff.

Simply a great jazz club. World class musicians...On my four nights visiting it was 2 American "masters" from the bebop era, Alvin Queen & Scott Hamilton, with a couple young masters from Europe, Claus Raible and Giorgos Antoniou. It was standing room only, but since I got there early, was able to get a seat at the bar. Staff are very friendly and really into the music. Audience was super, at times a bit talkative, but totally into the music. Highly recommend if you like great live music in a classic club environment.

A place to be in Athens if you like jazz/blues/soul live music. Lou Donaldson, Dr Lonie Smith, Fred Wesley, Deitra Farr, Freddy King, Otis Taylor, Harold Mabern, Defunkt Soul, China Moses and many others have been here. Live concerts start at 22:30 and usually last until 1:30 including a half an hour break. Drinks are good, sitting is tight, acoustics are not perfect but the atmosphere is great: Guests are music insiders and friends and the artists performing get inspired and offer their best. If you are a jazzhead and visit Athens, don't miss the Half Note Club!

W e know the Half Note Jazz Club since late 1970, when it was operating at a small neoclassical building in Plaka; e.g it has a history of 40+ years!
Till 10 years ago, we used to attend frequently jazz (& ethnic) music performances; however, the last time we were there, was at least 10 years ago.
We decided to revisit because of the Valentine's Day of 2016 and because we had missed Aleka Kanellidou (maybe the only female jazz singer of Greece).
The performance was great! In our late 60s and being jazz lovers we enjoyed very much the program and the atmosphere!
Thank God, smoking is not allowed!!!
Seating not very comfortable, service good. Uxeptable selection of drinks and wines, poor snacks platter, but...in any case we enjoyed the program and Aleka's performance! And ideal choise for feeling the erotic content of Valentine's Day, even in the year of crisis:2016!

Came all the way to this club to see Gary Bartz 4 concerts in Athens. I must say people running it is kind, profesional and that this club is the only one in the world which has managed to organize 4 nights of great Gary Bartz ... if you come to Athen and you are a Jazz Lover like me ... this is your joint!

This appeared to be a cool jazz bar, however when we arrived we were told it wasnt open and then it was and we could come back - we did. The man at the door was totally lit and we thought we might have to pay a cover, he told us they were closed and to go away. Obviously, didnt speak drunk English.

It was a bummer bc my 20 yr old son plays jazz and can wail so he was really looking forward to it.

Maybe a "locals" place but Jazz lovers don't act that way.
