Venues in Jazz YYC - well, some of them...

 Cafe Koi

 Cafe Koi is a creative community venue with different events, jams and features every  night of the week. Koi features a full bar and Asian fusion and vegan dishes. I really  recommend the salmon and the Kimchi!

 Kawa Espresso Bar

A wonderful little multicultural Cafe that hosts a variety of music most nights of the week along with one of the best international selections of beer, wine and spirits. The food is great too, with a number of vegetarian options. Lately I've been hooked by the Yogi Bowl.

 Gravity Espresso & Wine Bar

Another great little discovery in the neighbourhood of Inglewood along what has become 'The Music Mile'. This Cafe around the corner, has rich brewed coffee, nibbles, excellent sandwiches and soups. We loved playing this venue for the jazz festival!

Lolita's Lounge

Every Friday night is JAZZ night!  Lolita's hosts many of the best musicians locally, nationally, and international touring musicians. They serve a Mexican style menu and great Mojitos! Shows begin at 8PM with a $15 cover. If you want to have dinner before the show, reservations are recommended

Hotel Blackfoot 

Every Thursday night is JAZZ night!  Hotel Blackfoot hosts many of Calgary's best jazz musicians in their hotel lobby. They have continued to support live music in their hotel for decades, throughout all of Calgary's economic upheavals. Thank you Hotel Blackfoot!!
