Party Earth 606 Club Review

The Scene

With live performances every night for the past thirty years, the 606 Club has built its reputation as the place to hear some of the coolest jazz in London.

With live performances every night for the past thirty years, the 606 Club has built its reputation as the place to hear some of the coolest jazz in London.

Much like a 1920s speakeasy, the club requires guests to stop at its iron gates and ring a buzzer, after which they must descend the basement steps to a locked door and a second buzzer. At that point, a staff member will greet them and ask for their names and whether they are members – a ritual that clearly makes 606 the sort of place that requires a reservation.

The candlelit basement space, sparsely furnished with rustic wooden tables arranged around the stage, gets patrons right up close to the musicians and creates a tranquil atmosphere that clearly puts the focus on the music.

The walls are as much an homage to jazz music as the venue itself, with prints from the Jazz Age, a mural depicting musicians, and a clock that declares that the time is always 6:06.

A cordoned-off bar at the back of the room offers an ideal place for people who want to chat during the performances, though most of the diverse patrons, made up of everyone from Chelsea sophisticates and sultry young couples to gray-haired jazz aficionados are there to indulge their common affection for the music.

The familiar, “speakeasy-cool” vibe creates an atmosphere of unspoken camaraderie, and the welcoming Club 606 itself offers its patrons a truly ideal spot for an unforgettable and authentic musical experience.

Tip from Jonah:

606 Club is a home away from home for some of the area’s best jazz musicians, and many of them turn up to support each other. The place is intimate, so if patrons stay late enough, the chances of having a drink with the band at the bar are pretty good.

The best live music
Cristina F. Jun 22, 2013
There is no many places as much original as 606 jazz music club, I love going there any week day, because weekend are quite busy. Also for live music lovers I can recommend 2 places in the area: Pizza express in Kings rd. And Boisdale Belgravia, which is no fee if you book a table. And there is a nice terrace on the top for smokers. :)
