Kansas Smitty’s combines some of the best jazz musicians from around the world with a menu of original juleps to create unforgettable and unique nights. The relaxed and intimate atmosphere of this 60 person capacity basement comes alive when members of the Kansas Smitty’s House Band take the stage alongside special guests.

With live music 5 nights a week, it’s unsurprising that Kansas Smittys has been billed by the Evening Standard as one of the top 50 bars in London. Head to the Basement Tapes show on a Wednesday for innovative combinations of our favourite musicians, or swing by on your way through town for an unexpected evening of live jazz.

The venue is located on Broadway Market, and open 6pm until late six nights a week, with free entry every night except Wednesday. Kansas Smitty’s serves its own takes on the classic julep as well as a solid range of wines and locally brewed craft beers.

Kansas Smitty's Hackney - London Cocktail Bar Review

Beyond the many brick establishments on Old Broadway Street is an underground lair run by a talented bunch of jazz musicians. They have named the bar after themselves and are known for serving a fine collection of musing Juleps. Ladies, gents and...

Very disappointing experience, travelled with visitors to the venue. Bought drinks upstairs which we could not take downstairs??? Music was definitely not Jazz music at all. No air conditioning in downstairs venue, unbearably hot so ended up leaving. Filthy toilets. Will not be recommending to anyone. visited Kansas Smitty's on 24 Aug 2017

I booked a Hen do last Saturday, absolutely fantastic venue. Although very busy at the bar the staff worked quickly to make sure we had cocktails and bubbly for bride to be! Would definitely recommend and come back to for a great night out. :) Carrie visited Kansas Smitty's on 24 Jun 2017

Kansas Smiity is a BRILLIANT band! We had a brilliant evening. It was the hottest day for 40 years - and even hotter once they got going. Excellent - get down there. visited Kansas Smitty's on 21 Jun 2017

Had an amazing experience. Intimate venue with incredible live music, friendly staff and the musicians mixing with the crowd was really nice. House drinks were not to my liking, found them a bit too sweet, but that may be a personal preference. Loved every other bit of the experience though! visited Kansas Smitty's on 08 Jun 2017

Lovely basement Jazz venue, intimate, exclusive, great music, lovely drinks (bit pricey but the jazz is free so no complaints!) would definitely come back & recommend. Chris visited Kansas Smitty's on 27 May 2017

Disappointing - our table was given away because we were late, despite my emailing to apologise and let the bar know and them coming back to acknowledge the email. To be fair to the girl on the bar, she managed to find us somewhere to sit but it was still a bit frustrating as we were told we'd have to buy tickets to secure a table. We bought tickets which weren't check and lost the table anyway. We were also surprised and disappointed that the artists were far from the venue's usual standard, so in the end left early. visited Kansas Smitty's on 18 May 2017

Really good lunch on Saturday. Small area but the acoustics were good and the music first class. Lunch was freshly prepared, although limited in choice it doesn't really matter- you don't go to this sort of gig for the food so what is on offer is fine. Wine is a bit of a challenge but really who cares- go for the music and you won't be disappointed. colinphillips visited Kansas Smitty's on 13 May 2017

This venue has all my favourite things in life, cocktails, jazz, and a great east London vibe. A Must-go.

Amazing place to chill and relax with your mates. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and chilled night out. The prices weren't too bad and the staff were nice aswell.

Seen Kansas Smitty's house band last night. They started at 9pm and raised the roof with every note. They have a tidy collection of beers and wines AND a Julep cocktail menu. Their Allotment Julep is out of this world!
