    Book a table or two upstairs and enjoy the show. Nife atmosphere. Toilets are two floors below and a bit of a journey but it's all part of the ambience. If it was Smokey like the old days...:))

    The main floor is quite cramped, but perfectly set-up as a raucous big-band dance area; and there’s always the option of reserving a table on the restaurant balcony for a great view of the stage. Read more

    The venue used to be a Barclays Bank before being converted to a 7 night-a-week Jazz Club. If you dine in the restaurant before a show, try the Caribbean chicken. Delicious!

    More than a home for some of London's best live music - also a great venue for a bite to eat during the day

    Good music venue but get your drinking done before you get there. The selection of booze leaves much to be desired & the queues are bad.

    Great venue and helpful staff. If only the waiter wouldn't try to take my half finished glass every 30 seconds

    Good food, cosy intimate venue. Get a table by the railing if you want a clear stage view.

    Love this place. Food is OK and atmosphere is great. Keep an eye out for special events. Seen some great acts over the years, including De La Soul and Jamiroqui

    Given its reputation, you wouldn’t think the Jazz Café was such a newbie on London’s music map, but the venue was only converted from a branch of Barclays in 1990. Read more

    The Jazz Cafe is a London Icon delivering a broad range of live music most nights of the week.

    It's recently been done up. They've moved the bars to the edges, where it used to be right in the middle.

    Being short, I wander off to the right of the stage where there are usually less people to look past

    No real beer. Guinness was £4.50 until about 8.30, when they ran out. Newcastle Brown was £4.70. Then Guinness came back on at £4.90 a pint. Great sound but stupidly pricey poor service and beer.

    Drinks are incredibly over-priced, bar staff is awful and the venue is average. Unless someone great is playing, don't bother.

    Be careful when you book tickets for a show because they let far too many people into the venue!
