Established in 2005, The Jazz Bar showcases world-class multi-genre live music in a cool and atmospheric setting.

Harnessing Edinburgh’s kaleidoscopic creative talents into a massive offering of year-round live gigs, there is something for everyone in this multiple award-winning basement venue.

Our bar offerings are as varied as our music, so whether you’re in for a Saturday afternoon coffee, a fresh cocktail or a cold pint, everyone is welcome, and our audiences are highly diverse and well-mixed across all ages.

With SEVEN major awards sitting on our trophies shelf, you can trust that you’ll be hearing the best music Edinburgh has to offer, in a correspondingly first-class environment.

Please note that as we have ever-changing bands on, with constantly shifting audiences, we can’t reserve seating or tables for any events.
