“We recommend Ruby’s as one of the top 10 Jazz venues to visit in London” – Time Out
Ruby’s weekly jazz nights bring the atmosphere and vibe of 1950’s jazz clubs back to life for the modern day. Head into our speak-easy cocktail bar for great live music every Tuesday through to Saturday. The music is feel-good and easy listening, with plenty of bop, swing and groove – just the way we like it!
Our events are led by some of London’s finest talents on the jazz circuit… and watch out for world-renowned special guest artists often popping in for a play.
WHAT’S ON MIDWEEK
EVERY TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY we present THE DALSTON JAZZ JAM. A great night for both music lovers and musicians alike. We kick things off with a short opening set from the house band, followed by a lively jam session, where guest musicians pass by to join the band… TUESDAYS & WEDNESDAYS are led by a collective of fantastic jazz trios and quartets, who bring along a group of special guest artists to perform alongside them. THURSDAYS feature our very own Ruby’s Jazz Quartet, a carefully assembled group organised by bandleader and bassist Theo Malka-Wishart. The group are joined each week by a series of “Rude Intruders” (aka very special guest co-hosts) – many of whom have both recorded and performed with some of the biggest names in the industry, and have appeared at some of the most famous jazz clubs across the world.
