In 2011 the respected jazz magazine Down Beat included this art deco bar on the list of the world's best jazz clubs, the only place in Spain to earn the prestigious accolade (said by some to be the jazz equivalent of earning a Michelin star). With well over 9000 gigs under its belt, it rarely misses a beat. Admission costs from €12 to €18.

Big international names like Chano Domínguez, Tal Farlow and Wynton Marsalis have all played here and you'll hear 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 9pm and tickets go on sale from 6pm before the set starts.
