Stumbled upon Bennetts Lane last night and had a great time! $25 cover, $12 for a glass of wine and it's all so worth it. You can sit at a table or in the back on steps with pillows. Highly recommend if you're looking for live music on the weekend.

"Best Jazz Venue in Melbourne" only if you like standing between the bar and against the wall of the bathroom entry surrounded by pretentious jazz connoisseurs. An hour after the show started the lady at the door did not stop more patrons entering the venue already overcrowded and we were slowly pushed further into the actual toilet. There was no point for us in booking.
My partner is recovering from a broken ankle and was forced to stand for an hour, until the pain became unbearable. They are obviously focused on maximizing profit rather than looking after the patrons comfort and safety. It's a shame as the artist was great.

Nice wee venue and a fantastic performance on the stage, marred only by a few folks in the crowd being annoyed at our group having a good time and being louder than whisper levels.

Hard to find jazz club. Almost missed it. Only for google maps i would have walked right past it. Feels like a speakeasy. Went on a tuesday night so less crowded. Very small venue so feels very relaxed. Music was great, people in audience getting up to jam. Really good night out in melbourne if you just want a few drinks with good music. Would go back. Worth a visit.

Hard to find tucked down a side street and with a door that doesn't open until it's time, this small jazz club attracts some well known names and some talented emerging artists.
If you really want to get in make sure you book.
