I really enjoy the show, the singers, musicians, but above all the atmosphere. Everyone was singing and some just danced, it was great time. A bit too loud for my taste, but it is clean, food was great, and enjoy the evening. Parking might be...More

It used to be great, but unfortunately burned down in January. Some of the musicians now play in Mama's Kitchen, which is really nice, and the Ghion Hotel

Great music, grand place with a very quaint air about it and a good bar...the only problem is trying to catch a cab ride back. Ideally one should book a cab for the entire evening.

Located at the Taitu Hotel, this is where you find the perfect blend of music, food and ambiance. There is an entry cover charge to access Jazzamba but you will not regret it. Loads of jazz formats are played - very enjoyable.
