The Best Jazz Clubs in Miami

jazz

In Miami you can expect to hear everything from salsa to rumba to merengue. Reggaeton fills the streets outside of clubs and bars, mixed in with rap music and EDM coming from cars with the windows rolled down.

Miami is definitely home to a variety of sounds. However, one kind of music you might not expect is Jazz. Most people think of New Orleans or New York when they think of American jazz, but Miami also has its share of hot spots where listeners can catch local and international artists playing skat, hard bop, mainstream, fusion, and Latin jazz. Some venues even devote entire nights to jazz, and here are Miami's best.

 

 

 

Le Chat Noir 

2 S Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33130

This hidden gem can be found in downtown Miami, and is the perfect place for a romantic and cozy night of wine, beer, cheese, bread, and other French-inspired eats. Choose your wine and share with friends, or head out for a date night. The performance venue offers live jazz in a dimly lit, intimate setting, making it a perfect idea for spending time with your partner. This live-jazz venue provides a slice of the French Quarter in downtown Miami. Le Chat Noir's website event page advertises "live jazz all week," and that includes music Tuesday through Thursday beginning at 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday night at 10. 

 

Lagniappe House 

3425 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33137

This has become a local favorite, and it’s no surprise why. The New Orleans-style wine house offers wines imported from all around the world, as well as a huge selection of beer. It also has a menu of grilled favorites for a full dinner, or if you’re not in the mood for a full meal and would like to share some food with a date or some friends, grab a piece of fresh cheese and some meats from the fridge, and the cooks will put together a plate with your selections, toasted bread with jam, and olives for you to enjoy. Nightly music shows can be found here, and jazz takes center stage at 9 p.m. most nights.

 

The Corner 

1035 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33136

The Corner might not look like much from the outside, but the inside is a warm and welcoming spot with cocktails, small plates to share, and live jazz. Every Tuesday night, the Corner serves a delicious slice of syncopation. The atmosphere is much more subdued than the buzzed weekend crowds that make the Corner a go-to. Sip a perfectly made craft cocktail and enjoy the music. Musicians change weekly, but there's never a bad set, which starts around 10:30 p.m. No matter who's playing, you'll never pay a cover.

 

Churchills Pub 

5501 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33137

This self-proclaimed “sort of English pub,” is typically home to a hipsters and punks alike, and usually spotlights several punk, metal, and hard rock local bands. However, Churchill’s packs up its hardcore image for a softer vibe on Monday nights, when they host a live jazz night. If you’re not a “romantic wine and cheese plate with string lights in the trees,” kinda person, you might want to opt for this jazz night instead, where you can jam to some jazz tunes, have a good beer and shoot some pool with friends or your date.

 

Ball & Chain

1513 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33135

This infamous lounge and bar on Calle Ocho is home to many live music shows, and Fridays can get really packed. In fact, the whole place is filled with people dancing to Latin beats. If you’re looking for a place to have a Mojito, Miami Mule, or Cañita cocktail and listen to some jazz performed by a local band playing on the Pineapple Stage out back, then you’ve found your spot. The lounge is very much old-Florida style, and the coolest thing about it is that it’s not strictly a jazz bar, it’s not strictly anything, and always full of surprises.

 

Soyka 

5556 NE 4th Ct, Miami, FL 33137

The super stylish MiMo District restaurant Soyka, located on NE Fourth Court, is a low-key spot and a sophisticated reprieve from Miami's typical weekend antics. The dimly lit room seems to appeal to a more mature crowd for its special jazz nights. For the best views of the show, grab a wicker chair near the front. Soyka is the perfect mix of romantic, sultry jazz and a laid-back, cozy environment. The restaurant has a menu full of comforting eats, and great drinks, like a “From Soya with Love,” which is made with St. Germain, Aperol, Valdo prosecco, and fresh watermelon, or a “Death by Blueberry,” made with Tequila, fresh blueberries, sage, and grapefruit juice. Jazz starts at 9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.
