In 2011, the respected jazz magazine Down Beat included this art deco bar on the list of the world's best jazz clubs. It's the only place in Spain to earn the prestigious accolade (said by some to be the jazz equivalent of earning a Michelin star) and with well over 9000 gigs under its belt, it rarely misses a beat. Big international names like Chano Domínguez, Tal Farlow and Wynton Marsalis have all played here, and there’s everything from Latin jazz and fusion to tango and classical jazz. Performers usually play here for a week and then move on, so getting tickets shouldn’t be a problem, except on weekends; shows start at 10pm and tickets go on sale an hour before the set starts.
