Where are the best jazz clubs in Melbourne?


Live music in Melbourne is something that our city is famous for. But when it comes to jazz clubs in Melbourne, where are the best places to check out live music and bands?

Some jazz bars of Melbourne specialise in amazing cocktails, others are hidden away down cool little laneways and others again offer great food. They’re all offering slightly different things, but some places seem to attract better live jazz in Melbourne than others. Perhaps they have a knack for attracting national and international talent, or just know how to book a solid stable of local jazz bands.

So let us know! Where do you rate as the best jazz bars in CBD Melbourne, and what makes them so great?


  1. I happen to be witnrig to make you know what a helpful discovery our daughter encountered using your web page. She came to find so many issues, including what it is like to have a great helping mindset to get other individuals just understand certain very confusing subject matter. You really surpassed our own desires. Thanks for offering such useful, safe, edifying as well as easy guidance on your topic to Janet.

  2. Bennett’s Lane and Dizzy’s are great.
    Blue Diamond has a lovely vibe and view too!
    And the Daryl MacKenzie Jazz Orchestra at the Apartment on Monday nights are awesome.

  3. I don’t know if it’s the BEST, but I really like the Uptown Jazz Club on Brunswick St. Great atmosphere, windows that open, upstairs, audience sits close to the stage. The Japanese restaurant downstairs will bring food up, too.
