Kansas Smitty's


Kansas Smitty’s combines some of the best jazz musicians from around the world with a menu of original drinks 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 6 nights a week, it’s unsurprising that Kansas Smitty's 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 7pm until late six nights a week. Kansas Smitty’s serves an original menu of cocktails as well as its own takes on the classics, a solid range of wines and locally brewed craft beers.
