The Jazz Cafe does it live! BUT IT'S MORE THAN JAZZ!!!

You can tell by the name that we're fanatical about outstanding live music. But don't be fooled… When we opened at this location in 2001 we only played the finest UK Jazz, then we quickly branched out into Soul, Funk, & RnB. It's what our customers wanted. And it's why The Jazz Café has grown to be the South's leading restaurant and live music venue; it's the perfect place for a great night out. Today we continue to play music from these genres. Our showcase events have already included such great names as Courtney Pine, Average White Band, Alexander O'Neil, The Commitments, The Real Thing, and Shakatak. In 2010 we extended our playlist in to include exceptional tributes to Queen, Robbie Williams, Michael Bublé, the Rolling Stones, Madness and Elvis, complemented by some of the best DJ's around. All this in an intimate yet lively setting where you'll feel the bands are playing just to you.

But we're also passionate about providing our guests with delicious food and a superb bar in a truly inviting atmosphere and the warmest welcome in Reading. Our 100-cover restaurant offers tables for two up to parties of 100. Everyone has their table for the whole evening – just a rolling stone's throw from the stage! Or just come for the music. Either way, we've designed it to be an unforgettable experience. Bringing nights to life is the inspiration behind The Jazz Café. From the fresh ingredients we use in our food, to our extensive wine list and drinks selection, and our mission to bring the best live music to Reading, it's all about making your visit a night to remember. Jazz is widely considered to be the root of ALL music. And The Jazz Café name symbolises live music and fun. So why not make it a date? Come along and soak up the atmosphere, listen to fabulous music, enjoy great food and dance the evening away at The Jazz Café.

I came here for a surprise party and I thought the staff working behind the bar were fantastic. Nothing was too much and they always had a smile on their faces. Would highly recommend this venue as the bar staff made it a fantastic night. Many thanks.

Dear Jazz Café, Thank you for a wonderful New Years Eve, really enjoyed the lively atmosphere the dance floor was full all the time, mainly due to the fantastic band, The Originals, who played a mix of old and new in a very professional way loved the way they engaged with the guests, the only disappointment was that the band did not play on longer we were really getting into it then sadly they finished the DJ was good but there is nothing live music really looking forward to coming again Kind regards Chris

Dear Sirs - we came to hear Alexander O'Neil last night and unfortunately didn't - hear him!. First I would like to say that the table we booked was great, staff brilliant, food great, atmosphere great. The problem arose when Alexander came on to sing. the band were incredibly loud with their mics clear turned up to full volume, so much so that every beat of the drum was felt, after a couple of songs Alexander paused and asked repeatedly for his mic to be turned up, his backing singer asked for theirs to be turned down and Alexander's to be turned up, but the technical guys couldn't do anything. So after 50 minutes Alexander left the stage - it felt like half way through a song - no encore and no hint of him coming back, he had clearly had enough. We were left feeling short changed. We approached the manager and told him how we felt and he said he couldn't do anything as Alexander hadn't turned up for a sound check - but this was not our problem. He also said it was fine "last night" - whilst separately the other staff had told us that is was exactly the same last night. I was disappointed that such a famous venue could not solve the problem and when they couldn't they failed to deal with our complaint. We were offered a free round of drinks and finally the manager took £30 off our bill but that was not the point. We would have been much happier with a clear apology and a promise that they would go back to the booking agent and ensure that he felt how unhappy people were. Sorry to give such a bad review - I never complain - but just had to Paul
