Dorsoduro 3102, Ponte dei Pugni
Dorsoduro, Venice –
The only club of its kind in the city, the Venice Jazz Club is an intimate music venue with an artsy, almost underground vibe.
The club attracts a savvy clientele of jazz lovers who gather to appreciate classic jazz, bossa nova, and hot improvisations played by some of the area’s finest musicians.
The slightly edgy mood is set right off the bat with dim lighting muting the effects of the vibrantly painted walls, while black-and-white accents, exposed electrical equipment, and a funky collection of books and themed memorabilia lend a familiar basement feel to the space.
Cozy candlelit bistro tables – some pleasantly secluded by massive columns that add a bit of privacy – accommodate the well-dressed but laid-back guests who settle in before the show to enjoy drinks and hushed conversation.
Once the music starts, however, the buzz of chatter subsides and all eyes are on the stage as the VJC Quartet entertains the foot-tapping crowd.
With its excellent live music, soulful atmosphere, and flowing wine, Venice Jazz Club promises a delightful evening for even the occasional jazz enthusiast.
