London’s premiere live music venue is back, showcasing the best music from across the world seven nights a week. Since opening in 1990 the Jazz Café has welcomed some of the most respected artists through its doors, including Amy Winehouse, D’Angelo, Roy Ayers, Bobby Womack and many more.

Now the venue has been bought by The Columbo Group, proprietors of XOYO, Phonox, the Old Queen’s Head and more great London venues. Reopened in late May with a new look, a technical upgrade and a revamped food and drink menu, this has been a much needed breath of fresh air into the legendary venue.

Located in the heart of Camden, the Jazz Café has one of the best reputations in the City for shows, club nights and food. With an intimate capacity of just 440, it’s the perfect setting to enjoy a fantastic night, whether you’re on the floor or watching the show from the restaurant upstairs. The weekend club nights transform the venue from live music, to dance the night away, taking group drinks bookings on the mezzanine level perfect for all kinds of parties! On Friday nights we host No Miracles, a Hip Hop night, and Saturdays is home to Soul Power; an eclectic mix of soul and disco.



The Jazz Café serves food from 7pm to 11pm daily. Join us for great food and a great view of the live show from the mezzanine.

Please note in order to make a reservation for dinner you must also purchase tickets to the live show taking place that night.



Join us on a Friday or Saturday night from 11pm to 3am for our club nights.

We can accommodate parties of 10 to 70.

You’ll benefit from priority entry for your party and your own table service, ensuring the drinks are flowing all the way through until 3am.

The Jazz Cafe - London Restaurant Review

Utter the name Jazz Cafe in Camden and you get the turning of heads and the trust of soul patrons (even the likes of Bobby Womack have woo'ed here), but with The Columbo Group taking status of the property this year, has the iconic name retained its...

Disorganised and rude door staff. Manager (I think? he looked about 12) much smugger than he has any reason to be. Seems to be aspiring to a the 'townie' club style of hospitality that would be better suited to a place called 'Vibez' in Luton. And if you like being treated like cattle, this is the place for you. Not all bad though, the gospel choir were pretty good - do yourselves a favour and find a better venue, guys!

A great place, always with a brilliant atmosphere. I have been there a few times for gigs and I always had a pleasant time. A favourite in the Camden area.

Went to the AMP Collected Charli XCX concert last week and really enjoyed the venue. The bottom floor layout was spacious with the bars close by and with the upper dining levels having a great view of the stage below. The management and bartenders were very friendly and extremely organized.

Visited on a friday night, not a live jazz night but a normal DJ. The music was a commercial mix and the venue i would say is basic. Definitely a repeat

Had an absolutely incredible night at Jazz Cafe. Food was great but it was the Hypnotic Jazz Ensemble that stole the show.

My favourite live music venue in London. If only I could go to a gig every night of the week. I recently went late on a weekend, after the live bands had finished and it was so much fun. It was great hip hop, one of the bar staff told me they do funk & soul on Saturdays too. They upgraded me and my friends to one of the tables upstairs for drinks, great cocktails and service and still felt like we were part of the fun downstairs. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect for date night! Food is incredible and service is on point! Artist bookings at Jazz have been incredible. Big ups to the team behind this venue.

Booked an area on the mezzanine level for my Birthday party and it was amazing! We had our own area overlooking the dance floor and the staff there were more than accommodating - I felt like a princess! I would highly recommend.

Love this cool Camden venue. We went on a Saturday night, didn't have to queue to get in or at the bar despite it being busy. Great tunes and big dancefloor.

Visited on a friday night, not a live jazz night but normal DJ. The music was a commercial mix and the venue i would say is basic. Its the sort of place you can dress casually and dance the night away, Don't expect amazing drinks but it's good value for what you do get.
