Jazz Nights


The Café in the Crypt may be underground but there’s no secret that it is one of London’s hottest music venues. Listen to some swing, take a sentimental journey or dance to some Dixieland performed by some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians. While tapping to the tunes,  you can soak up some stunning Georgian architecture and enjoy fantastic food and drink provided by the team that was awarded the Les Routiers Cafe of the Year 2012.
