Word of warning To make a restaurant booking Jazz cafe takes a £20 food deposit per head. Conveniently it isn't stated anywhere that this is non refundable. The Jazz Café and the Colombo group [xoyo, phonox, etc] pocketed £134 incl ticket for nothing. The Ops...More

Recently went to the Lee Scratch Perry night at Jazz cafe, I was served by Toto & found him to be everything I'd ever wanted in a server. Funny, dashing, charismatic, knowledgable.. perhaps even with a tinge of vulnerability behind the eyes? The kind that...More

Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops
as well as for an embrace of all things counter
culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of
London street life. From bargain shopping and people
watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs
and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a
Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live
music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High

It will be restricted BUT once you've eaten you can stand around the balcony and you are also able to go down on the floor to get more atmosphere and still go back to your table when you want to!

Depends on what night and who is playing. I've been to Jazz Cafe over the years and the crowd is much younger and sad to say not completely appreciative of the music playing given it's history. Go for yourself though as... More
