The main musicians from many different styles and countries have played there leaving at the air his magic and charm.

Loved, loved, Noche Brazil. The volume was absolutely perfect. It was a great show, while still allowing you to eat. Wonderful experience to repeat.

Everything looked so good at first sight in NOTORIOUS jazz club( buenos aires), but then came a waiter:( First I wait for food for 1hour,after that I get some free bread which in the end wasn't free than he STOLE 100 pesos from the bill, after that lied about money and finnaly he could't call for taxi. So we poor foreigners stand in the street and in the rain and decided to inform other travellers to make better choice about jazz clubs in buenos aires

Food is average. Good show. Restaurant area is small and crowded - tables are too close to each other. Waiters take orders, serve food and pick up plates, etc. during the show's performance. The place is so small the waiters block your view and make too much noise taking away plates. It's a frustrating distraction that doesn't allow you to enjoy the show and the muscians performance.
