jz-club Shanghai

JZ Club offers its patrons a little flavor of “old Shanghai.” Dark and smoky with red lamps and quality jazz, the club packs ’em in on the weekends, so get there early. There is a large rooftop patio that not many know about – unfortunately sitting there means missing the music.

Comments from Audience: (1?One of my favorites. Live music is always great, with different styles (jazz, vocal jazz, gypsy jazz, latin…). A very mixed crowd, despite the rather expensive drinks. That’s the price to pay for their usual no-cover policy (there are exceptions for certain bands, though). ?2?great live music went on a Friday, Colombian jazz band was playing and definitely knew what they were doing. awesome show. the place is a little small so get there early (see before 9:30) or you risk sitting upstairs. drinks are a little on the expensive side, but worth it considering the quality performance.

Prepare to spend big in this see-and-be-seen temple of image while rubbing elbows with the city’s nouveau riche and the occasional Hong Kong celebrity. The club hosts some of the better local and int’l DJ talent, but whether the crowd recognizes this or even cares is up for debate.
