Nice Vibe at between £20 and £27.50 per person for 3 hours of live entertainment, depending on how and when you booked. I went on Ska Nght, and the John Holt Tribute. There was a good crowd although the drinks are quite pricey I thought at £5.50 for a small tin of stout and £3.50 for a Red Bull. There... More

My 3rd visit to this venue and was impressed with the latest cosmetic changes which should've allowed for a more spacious environment however, last visit was Trevor Nelson was the attraction...but was a huge disappointment. It was over-crowded and naturally the event attracted a very large crowd who wanted to dance! It was the biggest challenge of the night as... More

Remember to book on line,one may end up paying fifty percent more at the Jazz Cafe on the night. We had a charming young american serving us water,alcohol and food. Sitting up high, on comfortable stools, in the Bar area and looking out was great. The two tables below us had people who were not interested in live or recorded... More

We dined in the restaurant and couldn't be happier. Jacky absolutely made our night, going above and beyond. The band and look of the place was great. We'll be back for Jocelyn Brown!

From the security staff outside to the waiting staff in the restaurant, everyone very professional and welcoming. Food was very good and view of show brilliant. All in all, wonderful night out.

Don't let the JAZZ in the title put you off, as this live music venue is about MUSIC and actually jazz is a very small part of its music programme. This compact venue is without doubt my favourite music venue for seeing live music as its is quite compact, so even if its a sellout crowd you can still see... More

Staying in Camden

Neighbourhood Profile
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
