Jazz Cafe To Reopen After £3m Refit

The Jazz Cafe in Camden is set to reopen in May.

Camden's renowned Jazz Cafe reopens on 24 May after closing suddenly in February.

New owners Columbo Group (the company behind XOYO, The Nest, Blues Kitchen and others), are spending £3million refurbishing the venue which has seen performances from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Bobby Womack, Adele, Lee Scratch Perry and many more.

The modernisation, described as "an urban theme influenced by art deco", also involves adding a 69-seat dining area on the mezzanine level. The menu will include things such as chicken yakitori in soy and sake, seared tuna fatoush and avocado, brisket and bone marrow burger, and S'mores cakes.

A Columbo spokesman says the venue will continue to host jazz music, "while also connecting the genre with some of the most sought-after names in electronic music".

Opening concerts include Pantha Du Prince, Dave Harrington, Dam Funk, Egyptian Lover, Portico, Pete Josef plus showcases from 22a and NTS. Tickets are available from the Jazz Cafe website.
