Great music in great Peitermaai neighborhood with friendly staff. Small indoor seating around bar with many tables outside to allow the music and funk to overflow. And that it does. So enjoyed a night here listening to a 5 piece jazz band that rocked the house. Felt like locals and welcomed as if we were!

You must not be allergic to cigar smoke and the bugle call at 6PM. This bar has personality. It doesnt care who you are, as you can barely see people face, even during th day. But if you like good jazz selection and a cold beer (including a rare appearance of a Curacao brew), this is you place.

Great little spot for a drink especially during happy hour 5:30 to 6:30. Drinks are half price then. Service was great and they sell cool T-shirts.

The right place with the right atmosphere to listen jazz on Wilenstaad night. Good musicians play here almost every night with the best of jazz

If you like brown café's with jazzy music and great beers, you should definatly come a night to this place. There is space inside and outside. The area around looks great with a lot of small lights. Ambiance is great! Would and did recommend this place to friends and strangers

You go to Miles for the drinks (great selection), music, people, and ambience. Not much of a kitchen as it is not a restaurant, but their cheese platter is great as a side for the drinks. They also have a soup of the day and a meatball sandwich the size of a baseball. Great service and the music, whether live... More

Enjoyed an amazing performance by local artists. It is a small cafe, but people gather on the street out front as well.
