Named by the DownBeat as one of the worlds top Jazz Venues. Intimate music and low lighting set the mood for this one-of-a-kind spot where live music is being impovised by the very best Jazz musicians. DownBeat International - 2014.

We would never have discovered this place if it weren't for our guide "Jessie" from the Buenos Aires Cultural Concierge. Jessie did mention that the club had recently moved but the name remains the same. The club resembled a speak easy from the 1920's. It...More

Thelonious is an interesting option in BA for jazz lovers. The ambiance is very good and the musical choices are varied. Drinks are OK and food is rather expensive considering it’s quality. I recommend to have a drink there and eat before or after the...More

During my travels I’m always looking for performers in the local jazz circuit. Having so many good Argentinian musicians I explored Buenos Aires and found Thelonius Jazz Club in Palermo. A nice informal but Cousy setup distinguishes the Club. Great acoustics also. The day I...More

The club recently moved to a new part of Palermo. The new space is lovely, with the exception of the bathrooms that are weirdly already trashed. Like door handles ripped off the stalls. Service was a little slow and they forgot our bottle of wine....More

I enjoyed very much the good musician and also some very well known internationally . There are two bad points: first the barkeeper and his staff absolutely don't care about the music, they are very loud, speaking loudly and moving plates and glasses very noisily....More

An evening at Thelonius is never a miss. The place is quite small and intimate and really sets the right tone for listening to some fine jazz. It's not touristy at all, which is what I really love about it. If you are a jazz...More

It is not a very big place with little tables and a short menu. However you can listen to some of the best jazz groups in argentina. Also sometimes they bring foreign musicians. Worth to visit

quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent
mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment
buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American

Notorious is an excellent jazz dinner club in BA located at 966 Callao which would be a good alternative to Thelonious. It is open Monday to Saturday and they have an early show and a late show and the food is quite good. It... More
