Always had a good time here. Lots of tourists and travelers and its gets pretty packed on the weekends to spend a relaxing moment, it is an adequate place, interesting music selection at the beginning of the night but got better as more people started coming in.

This place is like an icon in Caracas. Always good music, good drinks, ambiance and well located. This place is not for the young crowd though... This is more of a relaxed place to have a drink and maybe why not dance a couple of songs!!! Most of all, just a hang out place to have a drink and spend... More

When in business travel nothing better that a nice place to have a cuba libre with great latin and cuban music. For the last 5 years every time I stay in JWMarriott I come to this excellent bar. It is a must in Caracas. Do not miss it

This is very conveniently located across the road from the JW Marriott in Caracas in an area which seems pretty safe, even late at night. World class jazz inside and with salsa dancing to match. Seems to be a popular after work venue, with many people quite well dressed in suits and ties. Great spot for a few drinks and... More

Just across the Street in front of the Marriott Hotel is this amaizing jazz place. With my wife we took the opportunity to hear an international jazz interpreter playing at this place. This is a nece a secure place for ejoing music and basically jazz.

Caracas after 6PM is always dangerous but if you are on Marriot, the Juan Sebastian Bar is your best option crossing the street. Don't be afraid about the metal detector on entrance, just ignore it and go up stairs. The food is good and affordable, everything we have ordered on menu was very well done and good portion.

Juan Sebastian Bar is one of the most amazing and unique (also historical by the way) jazz bars at Caracas, for the Jazz lovers this place has been 'the' gathering point for over the last 30 years. The list of famous Jazz musicians who had performed on that stage, where improvisation is the main beat, is amazing. On Thursday, Friday... More
