ABOUT Bennetts Lane Jazz Club – CBD Bars

venue now permanently closed.


Dubbed by Lonely Planet as "the world's best jazz club", Bennetts Lane Jazz Club is open nightly presenting world-class international and national jazz musicians.

Located in the quintessential setting of a dead-end Melbourne laneway, Bennetts Lane Jazz Club was opened in November 1992.

The original room has great natural acoustics and has been host to a number of world famous performers including Prince, Maceo Parker, Kenny Kirkland, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick Jnr., Paul Grabowsky, Joe Chindamo and Leroy Jones to name just a few.

The second room was opened in January 2000 to coincide with the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, known as the "Jazz Lab", Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Brad Mehldau, Kurt Elling, Wayne Krantz, George Garzone, Jim Black, Kurt Rosenwinkel and many more have given outstanding performances there.

However, with a 7 nights per week program, Bennetts Lane Jazz Club is dedicated to presenting Australian performers by providing a comfortable listening environment for their listeners, purpose built rooms, instruments and promotional opportunities.

Please visit us any night to hear quality live jazz performances from the cutting edge and avant-garde to the classics and standards that made the art form great. Our website will tell you about each performance and if you've any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
