Live Music Venue in London5 Parkway, Camden Town, NW1 7PG
You can stand on the bench at the back and get a good few. The venue is classy/Camden hybrid. The beer is okay priced, they have a lager, an IPA and an "Amateur Pale Ale". Good sound and nice lighting. For some gigs you can get a ticket which lets you sit upstairs as long as you eat a meal there.
Lovely, homely little place. We came from Norfolk to see Heather Peace and were pleasantly surprised by how friendly the atmosphere was. A lovely night out, great sound for a small venue and really good atmosphere. Only downside was it was it was £5.60 a pint! Probably normal for London but was a shock to us from Norfolk where we usually pay around £3.60 a pint. We didn't use the eatery upstairs but assume that that would also have been pricey, looked lovely though and had it not been fully booked we'd have had dinner there.
The Jazz CafÃ© is a brilliant venue and a great place to see live music. Small, intimate and cool. I saw reggae legend Johnny Osbourne there recently and had a fantastic night. The bars are staffed very efficiently and it was a pleasure to not have to wait 15 minutes politely waving a tenner around whilst gasping for a drink. 5 big stars to the friendly attentive bar staff! I didn't eat there - Personally I can't really dig the marriage of live music and sitting down to eat (which strikes me as something of a middle-class bucket list reject)... but each to their own! Thankfully the food bit is safely confined to the balcony area so you can easily ignore it. Security are cool and the atmosphere is chilled. It's also one of the nicest smelling clubs I've been to (which I realise is an odd thing to notice but for some reason I did!). If a live act comes to the Jazz CafÃ© that you are interested in seeing is announced and you haven't been before don't hesitate to get yourself a tick
The Jazz Cafe was a lovely intimate venue (not so big you would get lost in it). We had a restaurant table which gave us a good view of the stage. The food was very good - can highly recommend the roast cod. Staff were very attentive and polite. Will be returning.
Awesome evening with Freddie Mcgregor. Jazz Cafe was not what I was expecting, little bit small, but that didn't matter, very enjoyable evening. The only downside for me was when ordering food, it would be nice for the people serving us asking whether we wanted water, how cooked we wanted our food and not assume. Its not nice having a surprise when coming to pay the bill that it was £4.00 a bottle...
