Southern California Jazz Hot Spots


 

On any given Friday or Saturday evening in Southern California, you can probably find mellow jazz somewhere nearby. Hotel bars and restaurants all over the LA and San Diego area host jazz musicians or at least pipe in some jazz for you to enjoy while sipping a martini and chatting it up with your friends. While this isn't a bad thing, it can make the search for a true jazz venue kind of confusing. This is because any restaurant or bar that has hosted a jazz musician at least once in the past six months likes to call itself a jazz venue. But you might show up at said venue only to find that the talent booked for the evening is hip-hop.

 

So what we've tried to do (hopefully with some success) is create a list of venues that predominantly feature jazz. This mission is further complicated because jazz venues seem to come and go with regularity. Feel free to tell us if something we have here is out of date or if we need to add a listing.
