So far I made 3 visits to this club, the latest being at this winter. And every time, we had a great time there. They have a different band almost every night. For that you need to buy concert tickets. They are offering the tickets on their website, as well as at the door. Better call and make a reservation.... More

Cotton Club is a cosy little jazz bar and plays host to some great music. Saw The Dutch Connection here and they were great, accompanied by some tasty cocktails.

We had a chance to visit this place with my husband. Even i checked the reviews and i read that the music is ok, i was really expecting a random jazz music which offers you a sweet music experience. But starting from the first second, the musicians and the atmosphere were really unique comparing to other music places in Hamburg!... More

Whenever I am visiting Hamburg, I am checking the Club´s program. This time I found a non-resident band playing Blues & Funk (Tommy Schneller Band) , where I thought: Well ... why not ... ? Result: Great evening, great solos and everyone having fun and a good time. Aside of what I stated in previous reviews (yes, this is not... More

Even though the intention before this trip was to visit this club, I literally stumbled across it by accident on the way back to my hotel. It was late on a Saturday evening/Sunday morning, and the band was a 6-piece, playing traditional jazz. Quite brilliant. Friendly bar service, and free entry (possibly due to the lateness of entry) meant this... More

This Jazz Club is an institution in Hamburg. Music is on almost every night. I was there on a monday night Blues session. There was not much of a crowd, but the atmosphere was very relaxed, with the musicians chit chatting with the audience and having a great time. it was not really my music, but I appreciated the place...

I showed up late for an evening of big band jazz. I was surprised by the 20 piece band playing when I walked in. The music was good for a large amateur band. The conductor gave plenty of solo time to brass members and the music was significantly difficult. The barkeep was very nice and the performance space is small.... More

Good music, good vibe, very cozy but you need to be earlier there to get a good place for a live music concert. It's kind a small place with a good/fast service.

We visited this club with the Jazz O'Maniacs playing. Great music (one of the oldest and well known Jazz ensembles of DE) and cosy / colourful atmosphere. The grumpy boss of the club (I think he was) somehow contributed to this by personally serving around beers. Tip for him: be more friendly to customers. Still 5 stars though.
