If you’re into serious Jazz you’re going to love this place. They have an entrance fee based on the quality of the band that night. If you get there 30 minutes before show time you should get seating on a community table. Great way to meet locals too. Good acoustics. Smallish cozy venue. A limited fixed menu if you want to eat dinner. Centrally located.

If you like jazz, you must visit Jazzhus Montmartre when in Copenhagen.
Small house with a great history. Lots of big names within jazz played and play there. Wonderful, intimate atmosphere.
And a ticket price, that anyone is able to pay.

The jazz here is fantastic. First class artists and a crowd that is completely into the experience. Nobody talks over the music. Stage is well-positioned and sight-lines and acoustics are excellent.

However, the menu stinks. If you go for the jazz, you have NO options but the have the "Jazz Menu" which is fixed-price and has one appetizer, one main, and one dessert. No choice, no selection. And the choice our night was pork cheeks! Which I don't consider food, really. $80 Canadian per person and pork cheeks. My friend objected and they nicely made her a vegetarian dish of cabbage and cheese. Well, now $80 for cabbage! The salmon appetizers were fine, the pork cheeks were just barely O.K. and the side potatoes and mustard sauce were good. But with the concert tickets we were out $250 for the evening (without alcohol, as well) and it just wasn't worth that.

Sadly if you don't go for the dinner you won't get as good a seat to see the jazz. And the jazz is really good.

My wife and I decided to go here on our last night in Copenhagen and the artist was a Swedish singer, Victoria Tolstoy, who we had never heard of [we are from Canada] but the club reputation was excellent so we got our hotel to book us the dinner and the show for a couple of days ahead. We were highly impressed by the show - she is an excellent performer even if we didn't understand a word between tunes! but her band was outstanding. We would have gone just for the music had we known but the dinner was great as well.

The menu was fixed and our only choice was between fish or chicken for the main. I had the fish which was a tender and flaky white fish with a delicious sauce and my wife had the chicken which was also tender and tasty. The appetizers and dessert were also great so good staff in the kitchen. If you want to go for the food as well as the entertainment, we would highly recommend a visit.

It is a small club and the seating was very close. Elbow to elbow but we got to know our neighbours seated next to us at the long table - don't expect to have much of a private conversation - as well as some students seated in
the 'concert' seating on the other side of us. I'm guessing that this crowding together is necessary in order to generate enough revenue to be able to afford the band and if that is the case, I am all in favour of paying the band well.

So, we went because the reputation of this venue was for good jazz and we were very pleased with that and the bonus is that the food was also great. The only downside is the crowding. However we would recommend Jazzhus Montmartre for both the dinner and a show. For us, it was a great end to a wonderful trip to Copenhagen

Claire Martin and her quartet was such a great and outstanding experience last night celebrating Ella Fitzgerald . The pianist and singer Gareth Williams is an amazing multitalent . Wauw!
Hurry on- you can still hear this marvelous quartet to night or to-morrow
