Harvelle's - Historic Bar | Jazz Club | Live Music Venue in LA

You don’t have to go back in time to hear the melodic riffs of Coltrane or the flashy cornet of Armstrong, because Los Angeles jazz clubs keep the blues, folk, march, and ragtime all flowing strong in neighborhoods all over town.

Finding a bar or club in the city that is dedicated to jazz – or at least has jazz on the docket once a week – is a cinch, as venues all over Los Angeles from Echo Park to Beverly Hills and all the way to the Pacific Ocean in Malibu are bursting with plenty of bebop.

From the traditional Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood to the industrial catacombs of The Edison nightclub Downtown to the divey glory of Akbar in Silver Lake, jazz music is alive and thriving in LA.

Other cool jazz clubs in Los Angeles include Piano Bar, also in Hollywood, which features a distinctive southern style, while the Living Room at the W Hotel in Hollywood has a sultry Sunday night jazz performance every week. Grand Star Jazz in Chinatown, meanwhile, is one of those hidden gems you’d never expect to find in that area of the city.
