The only jazz club in Venice offers live concerts every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, from 9 to 11pm.Usually closed in january and August. Look for classic and modern jazz, Latin jazz, and bossa nova. VJC is NOT a restaurant, but we make some food BEFORE the concert, from 8pm.

The jazz club is tucked away on one of the ever-confusing streets of Venice, but if you can find it, I highly recommend an evening there. It's cosy ambience and friendly host are the icing on the cake that is the tunes! I'm a self-professed...More

Not a massive Jazz fan but treated the wife to a night out and both were very entertained for the evening. Will be visiting again.

We went here as an alternative to having a 100 Euro Gondola ride. It costs 20 euros per person, and that includes a free drink from the bar menu (soft and hard), and 2 hours of live jazz. It was a good decision. I like...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
