The ground floor is nothing special: Pizza Express dishing out its reliable repertoire. Head downstairs, though, and it’s another story. A basement jazz club hosts regular music sessions and attracts some big names. Norah Jones and Scott Hamilton have taken to the stage, and Sting has even given an impromptu performance here. Emerging talent is also encouraged, with lesser-known acts often appearing.

An amazing place in the basement of Pizza Express restaurant above - has been hosting jazz music since the 60-s. Cool atmosphere, excellent music and same-priced food menu as your typical Pizza Express.
When the big stars play you have to book tickets well in advance on their website - otherwise (if you are lucky) just pop in and the price of a ticket (usually between £15-£35) will be added to your bill.
