In 2015 the Jazz Cafe celebrated 25 years in business, having brought some of the most respected names in the jazz and soul world – D’Angelo, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Roy Ayers, Bobby Womack – to Camden Town. Now the venue (once a branch of Barclays bank) has been bought by The Columbo Group, proprietors of XOYO, Phonox, the Old Queen’s Head and more great London venues. It’ll reopen in late May with a new look, a technical upgrade and a revamped food and drink menu, plus a ‘reinvigorated bookings approach’. We’ll have more details soon, but it sounds like an exciting new chapter. Bring on the next 25 years!

I have been to many rising stars gigs and as usual the artists did not disappoint. The Jazz Cafe in Camden is when the gig was held and is a great location, and the drinks are reasonable for London and no matter where you stood you get a good view of the artists. If you haven't been before it's a great night out.
The Jazz Café is well known for a reason – it attracts a wonderful roster of talented & popular jazz, blues and soul musicians from across the world. I’ve had a number of memorable nights here and it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in Camden. You’re able to enjoy dinner at the restaurant upstairs overlooking the stage or you can dance the night away downstairs…. Highly recommended.
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!
Max Stone nailing it at opening of Rising Stars by Time Out at The Jazz Cafe
And Tankus The Henge Pretty well blew the place away with their closing number
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!
