Jazz Clubs in Zürich

Hi All, can anyone recommend any jazz clubs in Zürich or at least some jazz nights at certain venues? Thanks for any help in advance! Does any one also know of any open mike nights?

Re: Jazz Clubs in Zürich

Here's a results search page for links to posts on open mic.

Several EFers, including me, went to the one held at McGhees Irish Pub, opposite Bahnof Wiedikon, Zurich on January 16, 2011. It was a lot of fun!

Re: Jazz Clubs in Zürich

Trattoria And Soul Retaurant usually has good acts on but only on Thursday and Friday nights and not in the summer.
There used to be a place called The Jazz Room (or Place) near Paradelplatz open every night as well as Caa in the Niederdorf (more soul than jazz). Both these places have lamentably closed.
There is a restaurant called Blue Note that has jazz but I haven't been there yet. There are also jazz nights at the Widder Bar but I think these nights are more of a piano bar style.
Moods has already been mentioned.
Not sure abour open mic nights, but there are a few musos on the Expats in Zurich Yahoo Group who often advertise Open Mic nights.

Re: Jazz Clubs in Zürich

I've been to a couple of JazzBaragge events. The place is
called Musikklub Mehrspur, very near to Bellevue tram stop.
It's a pretty cool club, has nice and relaxed ambience.

The Wednesday, Friday and Saturday sessions are free of
charge; at least, I've never been asked to pay an entrance
fee. Perhaps they have a fee at special events.

Yeah. Been there too. Agree on the coolness factor etc. I've only ever been on a Wednesday night and can confirm entrance was free.

It's run by a dude called Dave Feusi who plays sax for "The Clients" - a really neat Swiss funk/soul/RnB band.

Re: Jazz Clubs in Zürich

On the first Friday of each week, you have the

in the Sternen Oerlikon

Really nice !

Entrance is FREE, but you of course are to consume at least a beverage. But the Sternen
is not expensive, and their wines and meals are of good quality
