Fiona Kenny

When it comes to jazz, Israel is a source of outstanding talent. Scattered around this beautiful country are some of the top jazz festivals, clubs, live performances, and bars in the world. If you are looking for a place to experience a memorable night in Israel’s bustling jazz scene, then look no further than these five famous clubs hosting both local and international performers.

1. Shablul Jazz Club

Music Venue

Located on the lively Port of Tel Aviv, this intimate jazz club radiates New York vibes. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed evening with veteran jazz performers and up-and-coming artists, playing everything from hiphop to ethno jazz on evenings from Monday to Saturday. Drink, dine, sit back, and enjoy life.

2. Yellow Submarine

Music Venue

Recognized across the country for its live performances, this is Jerusalem’s hottest spot for trendy music lovers. Located in the Talpiot Industrial District, Yellow Submarine boasts the best live jazz, rock, punk, and salsa performances. Although this venue is not all about jazz music, they do hold a free jazz evening every Tuesday night. The setting is simple, sophisticated, and puts music first.

3. Mitzpe Ramon Jazz Club

Music Venue

With award-winning jazz and delicious drinks on hand, there is no better place to go for a relaxing, jazz-centred night out in Israel than Mitzpe Ramon. With some of the biggest names in the business performing nightly, this is truly the best venue for a slice of soul in the Middle East.

5. Jam Jazz Cafe

Music Venue

Fellow jazzy vegetarians, this is your place. At Jam Jazz Cafe, a swinging club in Haifa, a veggie-filled cuisine serves as the foundation of its menu. It is a two-story music bar that offers live jazz performances upstairs, the vegetarian restaurant located on the ground floor. With their twist of modern Israeli jazz, relaxed atmosphere, healthy grub, and, of course, a wide selection of beers and refreshing cocktails, this place is simply brilliant.
