It's a bit difficult to find a first but when you enter you realise that it's the perfect venue for jazz in the basement of an old building. Recommend that you arrive early as all the seats were taken when we first arrived (although we...More

Specifically walked here to enjoy the jazz, followed maps all the way there. To find what it looks to be shut down? No signage or information, just a boarded up door.. totally unsure if this is open still or closed down completely!

Tiny little basement jazz club hidden round a corner. Fantastic atmosphere with lovely staff fun crowd. Hans Theessink played good blues, wine was nice, service was great, snacks were tasty. And it's two blocks from the underground station. Perfect.

We arrived fairly late, opened the door in the wall and (despite a slightly intimidating lady gate-keeping at the bottom of the stairs) managed to squeeze into the cellar to see the Roland Batik trio. They played two sets and were excellent. We loved the...More

Firstly, I have to say, the jazz band and their performance is really fantastic. They are very professional and we enjoyed the music there. But I dislike the lady at the reception desk. She is cold and indifferent, gives me the wrong change without an...More

A small and intimate venue where the food and drink are adequate, but the owner cares that you have a good time. The band were good (not great, but good), and again were keen to entertain us. We arrived at 7.30pm and the band took...More
