The atmosphere and quartet were amazing . The Jazz Club is located right off the canal. It's small but intimate. The service was good. They have ready made dishes for 8 euro each or for a deal. The show started slightly after nine so if you get there at around 8:30 you'll have plenty of time to soak up the... More

We initially thought it was the jazz singing type of performance, so we gave it a try. We got there at 9.30, a little late for the show according to the pianist (I mean, either they put a big sign at the door or lock the door if they don't accept late comers). Anyways, we stayed till the show ended.... More

We were looking for something fun to do in Venice and found the VJC online. It lived up to the reviews. We went for Latin jazz night. Great performers. The doorman,barman,piano man (all 1 in the same) is fantastic. On of our favorite nights in Venice.

I'm not a jazz expert but I enjoyed the music and recognised a few of the numbers being played. I felt it was a great way to enjoy a night in Venice, nice music and a bottle of prosecco.

What an intimate little gem of a find. Such an enjoyable evening of live jazz music. Frederico is a fantastic host. We arrived at 7pm when the doors opened to request a reservation and we're told to return at 8:45 for a 9pm start. The cost is £20 per head which includes the first drink. We chose the £50 for...

It's where Jazz-fans meet in Venice. A real cool atmosphere where you can meet locals as well as a few tourists. They have acts of italian newcomers as well as some international musicians. We had a real good time socializing there. Cool folks there!

This little hole in the wall is an awesome experience. We walked in without a reservation into the small Jazz bar and got a little seat in the back. The theme of the night was Latin Jazz and it was amazing. The drinks were all on point and they offered a variety of small tasting snacks and some appetizers for... More

If you like jazz (or even if you don't) this is well worth going to if you're in Venice for a couple of days. Entry includes a drink, which always gets a 👍 from me! Band were terrific and venue had a decent atmosphere.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
