Neighborhood: Centrum

The Jazz Cafe is located in an old music shop, the jazz/blues section of the shop has (naturally) been preserved. Guests can ask the owner, Mr Andrzej, to play any record they want to hear - be it one of their own or one taken from any shelf. The place is designed to make guests feel relaxed and cozy. There are colorful neon lights everywhere, which make it resemble a true jazz parlor while the walls are decorated with pictures of jazz greats. There are two rooms: the smaller one includes a bar and high stools (there are no tables here) while the larger one is furnished with six tables (for two or four persons) and a piano. It is often the case that guests (famous musicians, beginners or simply jazz lovers) come and sit at the piano or even bring in their own instruments for a jamming session. You never know how the evening will unfold. The cafe offers a selection of delicious meals: interesting starters, exquisite main courses like pasta with salmon or mushrooms, vegetarian dishes such as baked vegetables and stuffed aubergine), around 17 different salads (Italian, roast duck, ground nut and many more) and desserts such as Viking-style banana. In terms of drinks, there is a wide range of alcoholic beverages (cocktails included) as well as soft drinks. You could also order wine in a jug or try out the 'Jazz' tea or coffee.
