I've got to say I love the Jazz Cafe. I've been in the business for about 10 years (restaurants, bars and clubs) and have high standards on food, staff and atmosphere. I spent last Saturday at the Jazz Cafe for dinner, drinks and dancing, and I had a great time.
Ok, the toilets are appalling and the place is busy, but with the line up they offer of cracking musicians, what do you expect?
On Saturday it took a while for our main meal to arrive, but the staff were attentive and apologetic (which is all I ask for) and when the food arrived, it was divine. A nice choice on wine which was not overpriced (I can't speak for the other drinks) and good service at the bar. We danced for the remainder of the evening and found the band and the people great. I'm a huge fan. Overall Jazz Cafe is a comfortable club where you can let your hair down.
