The café is renowned for hosting the biggest names in the jazz and soul world before they become famous, so pay attention to the support act - it might be the next big thing. The restaurant, on a raised platform above the stage, offers the best seats in the house. All starters are £5.95 and all mains £16.50, apart from dishes served for two people which are exactly double both those prices. Note: when you book a table you have to prepay the cost of the main course in advance. The cost is redeemable on the night but cannot be transferred or refunded. Note also: the restaurant is open only on event nights.

Had a great night here the other night with Time Out Rising Stars. Max Stone was awesome! I couldn't stay for Tankus the Henge, but have seen a couple of videos and am gutted to have missed them...'totally nuts' just about covers it! Looking forward to the next one...
Fantastic evening. All four bands were great in their own way, but Greasy Slicks stole the night with their great musicianship- the drummer had a great voice too- and Tankus the Henge were great all round entertainment.
Went there last night with a Time Out Card event to see Rising Stars of the London rock scene. Awesome sound, great atmosphere and good view from upstairs. Tankus the Henge really gave a lot of energy to everyone attending!
The Jazz cafe is great, really small and intimate venue! I saw a really great ska band there and it was really intimate and so much fun! Really easy to get to and there is also a balcony area where you can get dinner!
