This is a place long established in Soho, I guess you could call it the original late night music venue.
Ronnie Scott's has been around a long time - in fact, you could say that Soho just wouldn't be Soho without it. It has been almost continuously open since 1959 (almost as it closed for three months due to refurbishment).
It has always hosted the greatest jazz and jazz fusion artists of the time - in fact you could say that the roll call of artists who have played there acts as a who's who for jazz around the world - people who have played there include: Sonny Rollins, Ella Fitzgerald, George Melly, even Jimi Hendrix (who played his last ever live performance here).
It is believed that the popularity of the place came from the fact that Ronnie Scott was actually a musician himself, and would often act as compere - so making the artists and audiences alike feel at home.
Also, the venue adapts and changes to its audiences needs, one such change has been the creation of the Sunday Jazz lunch sessions - were the doors are opened up to whole families, so even the kids can enjoy what used to be an adult-only domain. Still if this late-night atmosphere is what you are looking for - of course you will still find this with the Friday and Saturday night sessions.
With performances happening nearly every night, isn't it time you took a look through the famous doors of Ronnie's for yourself?
