I will start with the bottom line. It was a great night with excellent music and atmosphere. The band playing that evening was of six young guys. The youngest forgot when he was 60 but the many years on stage brought them so close together to make a superb show of 2 hours. They were playing 1920-30's music. The show is aimed at the local audience so all the connecting parts that were very humoristic were in germen and we did not understand most of them.

As for the place it self, the only thing came to my mind was "Moonlight and Vodka" by Chris DeBurge. In this song there is a line "The beer is lousy and the food is worse worst"..…. Well the beer was OK but you should skip the food.

The cover charge is 11 Euro food and drinks prices are normal and all together it was a memorable night. When I'm back to Vienna I will certainly go back to this place.

We visited Jazzland twice during our stay in Vienna. When you eventually find the entrance you might think that it is closed, but pull the door open and decend into the brick lined vault that is the cellar and the club. Entrance is a reasonable eleven euros. A range of basic meals and drinks are available at sensible prices, pastas, frankfurters and of course, schnitzel. The owner is very welcoming and is able to remember orders without writing anything down. He seems to trust that everyone will pay before they leave.
The main room might hold fifty people when it is full and the acoustics are good. There is an anteroom with a bar, a few extra seats and lots of photos. We went to an excellent blues night and then switched to modern jazz for our second visit. There is a different act every night but the club is closed on Sundays. Music starts at nine.
We walked to and from the club on both occasions without any concerns. Jazzland is a great venue.

Jazzland website claims it to be the oldest jazzclub in Austria. I was told by a local guest that the current owner runs it since 1972 and the photos on the walls are testimony of the many world famous jazz musicians that played in the venue. Jazzland only closes on Sundays and offers live jazz 6x a week from 9pm. The venue is small but cosy, "a 500-years old cellar below the ancient Ruprechtskirche - first mentioned in city-documents in the year 948." The evening I went there, the ticket was 15€ and the prices of drinks were a bit expensive but not outrageously (a 0.5l beer was 4.60€). The acoustic is good and you sit very close to the stage, what gives an intimate experience. If you like jazz, you must visit the Jazzland at least once during your stay.

That's a cellar, right place to make people gig :) that's the first impression, because the place has other larger rooms full of vintage musicians photos. The place has to be visited once if you like music, good ensambles play here. There's a ticket to pay and you can drink or also eat. Prices aren't so cheap but is right to the pub to survive proposing high level music
