We went to see Gina Schwarz' Pannonica Project which was brilliant - especially the mesmerising performance by drummer Judith Schwarz. Centrally located; tickets and drinks good value.

Specifically in sommer, when there are no classical concerts or operas, that is a good choise to visit one of the performances here. Good music, good meals.

I visited when Ed Motta was performing there. And I was dancing as the music was very groovy! So I think it depends on the artist. I really liked it!

Porgy and Bess do sometimes do Jazz for Kids concerts, so it may be worth ringing in advance to see if anything coincides with your visit.
