Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Insanely cramped and claustrophobic. Cool club with flowing drinks however cramming 60 people in a room that would have been no larger than a 30sqm studio hotel room was very uncomfortable. The band itself was faultless however was unenjoyable due to the sheer squashed capacity in that basement room. One split system to cool the room was not adequate and having people graze against you everytime someone got up was very unpleasant. I am not a large person by any means and it was aweful. Not sure how the club think it is acceptable for patrons to pay $45 a ticket to be that squashed and uncomfortable. We were not alone and heard similiar comments from other patrons. My husband and I left at the halfway break it was that unbearable. If you can handle having zero space and not being able to move then the performances are great. Otherwise avoid.

We really enjoyed the ambience of this cool little jazz club.

Very laid back but super cool little jazz club.

If you want somewhere with a great vibe this is the place.

This is an intimate venue where you can really focus on the music. Drinks are available at standard bar prices and a small snack menu is also served. The bend we saw was excellent (Panorama Brasil), with a low key vibe.I thought the aircon was too cold, however my partner thought it was too hot, so personal taste I guess. Reasonably priced, am planning to go again.

Visiting Melbourne for business and a colleague bought us tickets for this place as a gift. Didn't know a thing about it. Went in and immediately liked the ambiance. The house wine was okay. The pizza was tasty, but not worth a special trip. The music was great. The musicians seemed to mingle well with the crowd during the break, the bartender was really friendly and attentive, the staff was great. The music wasn't too loud, so even though the place was packed out, it felt very comfortable and welcoming. They did three seatings that Saturday night, so we were hustled out after the first group, which we expected, but they weren't unfriendly about it. People really seemed to enjoy themselves.

Just the sort of atmosphere you are hoping in a jazz bar. Three levels, all intimate. Friendly bar staff.

Easy to book, welcoming and relaxed venue with a great vibe . Small / intimate bar and if you’re only a 2 you’ll share a table , some great jazz and full of jazz lovers good drinks and limited snacks - great place to visit for live jazz.
