Went to the Jazz Cafe last night to see Candy Staton. Having read the latest reviews of the venue I was expecting a very poor, low class venue, but this was most definately not the case. The door staff were friendly and efficient. Ok so the food at Jazz Cafe was a little on the cold side and was probably a bit overpriced, but this is London, so paying £18 for a steak while you watch an amazing gig is not that big a deal.
Candy was fantastic. The club is small, but this is definately a positive. You are so much closer to the artists and the sound system. The crowd were a mix of all kinds of people and the vibe was incredible.
Ok the toilets are a bit of a trek and not that inviting, but how much time do you really want to spend in them anyway!
I would certainly visit the club again. Hopefully in Feb to see de la soul.
Dont believe what these other people have said, sounds to me like they're a buch of miserable g*ts!!!
