Deep in the heart of Orchard, a speakeasy-harking den devoted to jazz and blues has risen. Its name will be familiar to fans of the genre: Montreux Jazz Café. Yes, of the jazz festival fame. The intimate space in Pan Pacific Orchard, racked with memorabilia and vintage posters, is only the sixth of its kind in the world, and the first in the region.

But on to the music. The Café plays host to a roster of local and international cats, as well as the odd DJ or two, in gigs that go on until the bar closes, ’round about midnight. Expect blues, fusion, smooth jazz and a healthy dose of standards – already, the likes of local jazz legend Jeremy Monteiro and British soul sensation Omar have taken the venue’s stage.

Don’t let its name fool you, though. This is not a café so much as a restaurant and bar. An exhaustive list of cocktails ($16-$26) ranges from your classic Manhattans to the signature The Girl from Ipanema that, true to its bossa nova-inspired name, mixes Cachaca 51 with lemon juice, orange juice and passion fruit. The food, on the other hand, takes cues from hearty European fare: think Croque Madames ($18) and pan-roasted sea bass fillets ($22).

Love this place! Ladies night on WEDS offers a group of 5 girls a free bottle of Cloudy Bay wine and FOUR delicious Martini's each. Great live Jazz & Soul tunes. We'll be down there again next Weds that's for sure!
