Party Earth Ronnie Scott's Review

The Scene

Ronnie Scott's, London's oldest jazz venue and a Soho institution, has hosted legends like Jimi Hendrix and continues the tradition by booking the best acts in the world.

Ronnie Scott’s, London’s oldest jazz venue and a Soho institution, has hosted legends like Jimi Hendrix and continues the tradition by booking the best acts in the world.

Low lighting sets the mood in this intimate one-of-a-kind spot, where the dark and understated décor is clearly designed to put the emphasis on the music.

A small stage front and center is surrounded by tiers of reserved booths where patrons enjoy dinner and a bottle of wine during the show, while a bar at the back offers a few stools to accommodate the handful of drop-in stragglers.

The club fills up with upscale yet laid-back regulars on the weekends, and these folks take their jazz very seriously.

The atmosphere itself seems to be an homage to the institution of jazz music, and Ronnie Scott’s is worth a visit just to watch the jazz lovers slip into a trance when the music starts.

Tip from Jonah:

Ronnie Scott’s hosts two different sets on the weekends. It’s best to book a table for the second session, arrive around 11:30pm, and jam to the music until 3am.

  • Crowd

    Jazz and music lovers of all types, very civilized, 30s to 50s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Incomparable jazz. The most popular shows tend to be on the weekends, but those who know their jazz will recognize many of the names who perform during the week.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    British dishes include salads, soups, sandwiches, fish, duck, pasta, beef, and chicken. Priority seating for those who are dining. Book tickets online or by phone.

  • Prices

    Tickets £10–£46 depending on the artist and day. Appetizers £5.50+, entrées £12+, desserts £6.50+. Beer £3.50+, wine £18+/bottle, cocktails £7.50+, mixed drinks £5.50+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Smart casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Depends on the act, so check the website for performers and show times.

Musical Time-Travel For The Newbie and The Expert

SOHO can be a pretty daunting place, especially at night. Whether you've found yourself here by mistake (easier said than done) or you are old-hat at walking Soho's streets, Ronnie Scott's has to be one of the very best places to check out. Stepping in to Ronnie Scott's feels like you've come in through the back door into the dressing rooms of Jimi Hendrix (to be honest you probably have) but you could also be in the middle of 60s New York,, such is the instant wave of cool. I always feel like I'm not supposed to be there but to be honest, that's half the fun. Upstairs hosts a restaurant but if you're just there for the music,head to the downstairs bar where you can recline in cinema like comfort or group yourselves around a candlelit table. Either way, it's impossible not to relax in the atmosphere and completely lose all sense of time and place. You might get a little reality check when you get your bar bill (the drinks are pretty steeply priced) but it isn't somewhere drink yourself stupid. The musicians make you feel like family and you really couldn't be further from the fast paced bustle of rickshaws outside. Ronnie Scott's is still doing what it's been doing for years and the door is always open. Go hide.
