“Noisy and Expensive.”

The Ellington Jazz Club
Ranked #3 of 12 Concerts & Shows in Perth
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 July 2018

We went to the Ellington Jazz Club for my daughter's hen's night. Going out to a club is not something I usually do and possibly compared to other places perhaps the drinks weren't expensive but I consider $5 for a can of diet coke to be a bit rich. My two daughters-in-law shared a bottle of champagne which was about $65 a bottle!! I was looking forward to hearing some good jazz music as I grew up with a dad who was a huge traditional jazz fan. I was sadly disappointed. We were in an upstairs room which was great as we could sit and talk and it wasn't quite as noisy as the bar next door. There was a TV on the wall showing the performances which were happening on the stage downstairs and apart from an opening bracket of modern jazz music and a couple of standup comedians most of the performances were strip shows. Not even very professional looking strip artists either - not that I'm a connoisseur of strip shows. Perhaps they were performances by the beginners! Platters of finger food were supposed to be provided but for the 20+ ladies who were there all we received was about 5 small plates of quite ordinary food. By the end of the evening everyone was starving as most of us hadn't had dinner before leaving home believing that we would be fed at the club. People were checking their phones trying to find food at midnight. One of the highlights of the evening was the entertainment we received from a burlesque dancer who was very good. The Ellington is definitely not somewhere I would bother going again.

Ellington’s has an intimate vibe with the audience being close to the performers. There is a wide range of artists (both national & international) playing almost every night, so you would be unfortunate not to find something of interest. Best to book early if you want a table as seating is limited, standing spots are more flexible. A selection of bar food and drinks are available. If you are a music lover you must pay Ellington’s a visit.

Great venue with varied typrs of jazz to please all tastes. A great atmosphere being so close to the artist's.Food is great and service excellent. The only criticism is the cost of wine being all around $50 a bottle and a selection of only two draft beers at $12 a pint.yes bottle beer is also available at $9. Rather rich?

The Ellington offers a very wide range of shows almost every night of the week and you would be unlucky if you couldn’t find something to suit you on a very regular basis. Good bar food on offer and a good range of drinks. Book early for some shows if you want a table. Not so hard to get a spot standing. The Ellington is a gem in Perth. Well worth going to

If you want a place to sit down and listen to live local little jazz bands. This is the place for you. Very chilled and small with a little bar this venue provides a sexy little ambiance for the true jazz appreciator. A little gem.
