Named by the DownBeat as one of the worlds top Jazz Venues. Intimate music and low lighting set the mood for this one-of-a-kind spot where live music is being impovised by the very best Jazz musicians. DownBeat International - 2014.

An evening at Thelonius is never a miss. The place is quite small and intimate and really sets the right tone for listening to some fine jazz. It's not touristy at all, which is what I really love about it. If you are a jazz...More

It is not a very big place with little tables and a short menu. However you can listen to some of the best jazz groups in argentina. Also sometimes they bring foreign musicians. Worth to visit

Great place to hear good jazz. A tiny place with a surprisingly good acoustic. Make sure to place reservations 2-3 days in advance and you will get the front tables

We were recommended by a local. If you like Jazz, this is the way Jazz was intended to be listened to: small intimate venue, good acoustics, reasonable snacks and drinks and cover, professional Jazz musicians. Definitely off the tourist track. We hope to return on...More

It is a great venue with great jazz. Being summer time we were worried that it may be a hot stuffy and smoky venue but it wasn't. Despite being in an old building the ventilation was great, and more importantly so was the jazz.
