New Jazz venue opens in the City centre >

Belfast’s newest jazz music venue throws opens its doors for the first time this Saturday, 5th October.

Jaxx Jazz Club, located in the heart of the city centre, will provide the perfect setting for a music filled night of contemporary and swing time jazz music.

With a stellar line-up of live musicians including jazz legend Gay McIntyre, known the world over as one of the finest exponents of jazz music, guests can enjoy the very best jazz sounds in an intimate, comfortable and affordable setting.

Following the invite-only launch, the club will open to the public on Saturday 12th October, with music from Rick Swann, one of Europe’s finest trumpet players, who is also artistic director for the new venue.

Ahead of the opening night, Rick Swann said, “Whether you are a die-hard jazz lover or simply looking to explore and hear more, Jaxx Jazz Club is the place to be. Every Saturday night we will be showcasing established jazz artists as well as up-and-coming talent from across Ireland and beyond.”

Situated at 16-20 Fountain Street, the street was also the home of original home of Maxims Jazz Club in the 1950s and 60s, guests are urged to book early to avoid disappointment.

Sean Murray, of Murray Hospitality Ltd, who has 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry developed the concept following a dinner in Belfast city centre when he and his wife couldn’t find a music venue were they could relax and enjoy a drink at affordable prices. With Jaxx Jazz Club guests will be able to do just that. It will be a place to meet, linger, unwind and relax.

“It isn’t just about the music, which will be supplied by some of the finest musicians in Ireland. It’s also about offering affordable cocktails, champagne and wines along with draft beers and snacks, all served to your table by fully trained, attentive and personable staff.”

Tickets are £5.00 per person and can be reserved in advance. Seating will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
