Named by the DownBeat as one of the worlds top Jazz Venues. Intimate music and low lighting set the mood for this one-of-a-kind spot where live music is being impovised by the very best Jazz musicians. DownBeat International - 2014.

It is not a very big place with little tables and a short menu. However you can listen to some of the best jazz groups in argentina. Also sometimes they bring foreign musicians. Worth to visit

Great place to hear good jazz. A tiny place with a surprisingly good acoustic. Make sure to place reservations 2-3 days in advance and you will get the front tables

It is a great venue with great jazz. Being summer time we were worried that it may be a hot stuffy and smoky venue but it wasn't. Despite being in an old building the ventilation was great, and more importantly so was the jazz.

Thelonious earns extra points for having a great vibe. You pass through an almost unmarked door, up a flight of stairs, and into the club. Great decor - small shaded lamps on cabaret tables, a mass of exposed bulbs tied together hovering over the stage....More

Notorious is an excellent jazz dinner club in BA located at 966 Callao which would be a good alternative to Thelonious. It is open Monday to Saturday and they have an early show and a late show and the food is quite good. It... More
