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.

Thelonious earns extra points for having a great vibe. You pass through an almost unmarked door, up a flight of stairs, and into the club. Great decor - small shaded lamps on cabaret tables, a mass of exposed bulbs tied together hovering over the stage. Really great. The night I was there I heard a jazz quintet playing tribute to...

We saw a tribute to Charlie Parker. Venue is very cool. Mostly local crowd. Nice tapas, good wine. You can only book through email. We got the last table in the back, but I ask the hostess if she could move us up in case someone cancelled. She did. I gave her a nice tip. It could be hard to... More

Go onto their website and send an email with your choice of night, time of show, table choice, name, cell phone and number of patrons. It is a really small club so all tables have a view and good sound. It has a speakeasy feel about it, with no sign outside (just small name plaque). Drinks are 75 for cocktails,... More

Thelonius features all different kinds of jazz artists and a wonderful atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommended as a place to grab a drink before going out for the evening.

If you like jazz this is the place to go. It's intimate, loud, the crowd is friendly and lively, the music superb and the food's jolly good as well. We enjoyed our first night there so much we booked to go again the next week.

This is definitely my favorite place in Buenos Aires. In the heart of Palermo, the bohemian neighborhood, Thelonious offers great music and a really cool environment. I've been there 3 or 4 times, in different occasions, and each and every time I listened to some great jazz and enjoyed the cool vibe that the vintage decor sets - with a... More

You can either go for a date or with friends. Do not forget to book before. Best tables: C7 to C11. Only cash. Always look for a cuarteto or a quintento. You go there to listen to music, not to hace dinner. You can go to Los Divinos after the concert (Gascon and Gorriti).

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
