Classic Sydney jazz club, gets awesome local and internation gigs including lots of big names. Cool venue, good bar, decent food options. Opt for the dinner and show package to guarantee a seat at a table as a bit of a special occasion, or turn up early enough and nab a bar stool if you want a seat for the show.
Brilliant show by James Morrison the other day. The venue is a grand old music club ... think London's Ronnie Scott's ... decades worth of signed muso pix on the walls ... bar staff are slick and friendly. The website tells me Jimmy Webb and Tony Joe White are on in the next couple of weeks. I'll be going back for sure ...
Don't do it to yourself. The place was empty.. awkward as of the 15 people present.. no one wanted to dance, even though the band was albeit quite good (nothing to write home about, though). The security was beyond abrasive in their application of the 'no talking' rule.. in a jazz club...?? Overpriced pub food was on offer. Manager, was the mostread more
Dude, are sure you were at the right basement?
That was my thought exactly! I was shocked!
yes actually we found the management rude too.
One of the few great live music venues left in Sydney. The basement is known for securing great acts and, as a result, usually offers a memorable night's entertainment. Booking for dinner is the best option to score a prime view, and the food is suprisingly good.The standing room area can get very crowded.
