3 jazz venues. From Motown to Funk, and everything in between!


It may be surprising to some that Toronto is home to a diverse array of Jazz Bars and Venues.  From Motown to Funk, and everything in between, every genre is represented at choice establishments.   Igor recommends checking out these Toronto Jazz Bars:

Poetry Jazz Café

Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 4:30 pm – 2:00 am & Sunday 2:00 pm – Midnight. 224 Agusta Avenue

The walls are lined with images of the Jazz greats in this cozy cocktail bar. Poetry Jazz Café routinely hosts the up and coming Jazz musicians of Toronto. During the warmer months, patrons are invited to enjoy the zen-like oasis of the back patio.



The Reservoir Lounge

Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 7:30 pm – 2:00 am. 52 Wellington Street East.

An intimate basement joint with live Jazz, Swing, and Blues 5 nights a week.  Snack on late-night tapas and sip craft cocktails as the music moves you. Dancing is encouraged at Reservoir Lounge, so don’t forget your dancing shoes.
