Description: Fine Food; Live Music; Great Times! Where Music Entertainment Lives! The Jam House opened on 23 April 1999 creating a unique music experience that combines rhythm 'n' blues, soul, jazz and pop every night of the week together with imaginative international food. This very individual venue is supported by boogie-woogie king, TV presenter and pianist Jools Holland who rocked the place on the opening night and will be dropping in from time to time. Situated within the exclusive setting of St. Paul's Square, the JamHouse is a unique Birmingham venue with a history of music and fine dining. The relaxed ambience of this Georgian building coupled with our sophisticated catering make the JamHouse an experience that you will certainly impress family, friends and the employees and clients that you value the most. Stylish, yet informal, The Jam House is spread over three airy floors and holds up to 600 people. The open plan, top floor restaurant has seating for over 80 people and is very popular for corporate events and business/social lunches. The stage, dance area and informal seating can be found on the first floor along with a state-of-the-art bar running the width and height of the room. The ground floor hosts another impressive bar and seating area. An events co-ordinator is available if required, and we can also offer superior audio-visual presentation equipment. Our outstanding facilities are available from Sunday to Wednesday for private events.

A really good night out for live music! Highly recommend giving it a try, especially if looking for good live music.

“Poor bar service.”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Not got a lot to say about this place really as I only stayed for one drink. Went along on a very quiet Saturday afternoon. Three bar staff with nothing to seemingly do stood about chatting while I stood waiting for quite a while, then paid almost £10 for two beers. I have no issue with paying over the odds to be in a classier establishment, but I wouldn't go here again personally.

“Excellent night out!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Totally awesome night, been there twice now and each time was great, hotel to stay at has got to be the Travelodge as it is around 3 min walk, totally safe to walk alone & at £34 for B&B you cannot fault it! We travelled from Bucks to go to it, Guy on the piano should stay on all night as he is great, band comes on at 11 pm & open till 2 am! great night out for all ages! xx

“Brilliant but busy...”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We went for a works Christmas night out. This was our second time of doing so. The band Detroit Soul are brilliant. The atmosphere was great and we all had a great time.

My only problem was the bars, not enough staff. But then again it was Christmas so I accept that it's going to be busy.

I'd still recommend people go, it's great!!

“My favourite Birmingham venue”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

There's a few things I love about the Jam House. It is situated on St Paul's Square which is a beautiful little area with some of the more upmarket Birmingham bars and restaurants dotted around. The food is great (check out the 3 courses deal midweek), they have varying musicians and bands, the Jam House was the first place I ever seen a gospel choir, and they were fab!
Watch out for Dino Baptiste who often plays here, a great musician/entertainer and should be Harry Hill lookalikey.
