Situated right in the heart of Copenhagen, Jazzhouse offers a contemporary and cutting edge take on jazz and bordering genres on two stages.Using our custom trip planner, Copenhagen attractions like Copenhagen Jazzhouse can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Jazzhouse – back then called Copenhagen Jazzhouse – originally opened in 1991. After a break in 2011 due to renovation Jazzhouse reopened in 2012 with a new design as well as a new musical profile. Most notably the former night club in Jazzhouse was closed down so that the venue could dedicate itself entirely to various expressions of live music.
Jazzhouse is a place for experiments, constantly exploring the shapes of jazz to come, presenting underground artists as well as defining musical legends. Jazzhouse sees jazz as an open form of expression rather than a genre with a fixed set of rules. Here there is space for acoustic jazz ensembles as well as free improvisation, avant-garde, folk and world music, experimental electronic sounds, alternative rock and even contemporary classical music. We also like to explore meetings between music, poetry, film and more.
Jazzhouse has two stages. The main stage (Store Scene – capacity 300 standing / 230 seated) is located in the basement. On the main stage you can experience large ensembles, acclaimed international acts and some of the best Danish groups - with great sound and yet with an intimate club atmosphere. The room is flexible and can host delicate and quiet chamber music as well as edgy, noisy and electronic sounds. The small stage (Lille Scene – capacity 90) upstairs offers an intimate and informal feel that brings the audience close to the music. At the small stage you also find our cocktail bar where you can enjoy a great cocktail after a show at the main stage.
Jazzhouse is situated in Niels Hemmingsens Gade 10 in the heart of Copenhagen, just across the street from the beautiful Church of the Holy Ghost, the charming Gråbrødre Torv and around the corner from Copenhagen's main pedestrian street, Strøget. Doors open one hour before show start which is usually 8 PM on working days, 9 PM on the weekends.
You can buy tickets at the door or via Billetlugen.dk or our homepage. Tickets purchased online can be brought in printed form or displayed on a smartphone etc. Tickets can also be bought at Tivoli Box Office, Vesterbrogade 3.
Copenhagen Jazzhouse Reviews
The Jazzhouse is off the main drag on a side road, slightly away from the beer and other noisy spots. A perfect spot to hear great music. Friendly and welcoming more »
happened upon an archie shepp gig whilst in town. people were great, space and acoustics were wonderful and it's the sort of place of which i wish there were more in the states. aces all around. more »
One of the best small venues in Copenhagen. Excellent range of performances from traditional Jazz to noise rock like Lightning Bolt! Also, friendly staff and decent drinks prices. Don't forget you can but beer in the wardrobe.
I wish I had a place like this back home. Great bar with cocktails. Really good sound quality!
