Why locals love it

Born in 1972, this one time jazz venue etched a place in local history; Herbie Hancock and Dizzy Gillespie played here. Today the tunes have expanded beyond brass and plucked cellos. The 'what's on' repertoire includes electronica, hip hop and folk. What hasn't changed is the vibe; this is the perfect joint for forward thinking music makers.

Why you should visit it

Want to get up close and peculiar with your favourite chanteuse? Like to feel the breath of funk soul troubadours on your cheek as they wax lyrical? This is the place to reach out and touch your faithful lyricist. And with major refurbishments under way (due for completion in Feb 2015) your communion's set to be a blaze of jazzed up glory.
