The list of jazz clubs below is being posted for the benefit of other members who love jazz and travel. It is by no means exhaustive, but a good start. I hope that others will add their favorite clubs to the list so that we all have a reference to consult when we travel.

Best,

Harry George

Selling ale since 1684!

Showing live jazz since 1959!

Right on the south bank of the Thames, this is a lovely old pub with an excellent Thai restaurant attached to the jazz club. Recommended. :)

I will be in Huddersfield, U.K. from 17th to 24th November.
Is there any jazz club around or in Manchester? Any recommendations to listen or jam?

Here in ABQ,the only club that features jazz on a regular basis is Scalo in Nob Hill,right down the street from UNM. They have jam sessions on Tuesday nights and a trio on Fridays,and other music the rest of the week. They used to have jazz every night,but the economy changed that. The music is in the Il Bar next door.

Several other clubs here have piano trios or soloists about once a week or so,but mostly these days the clubs tend to go for karaoke.

In Australia there really are not many jazz clubs presenting professional bands on a regular basis.

http://www.jazz-clubs-worldwide.com/docs/oz.htm#BRISBANE

Let's face it, there are not that many jazz pros in Oz. But the semi-pro jazz scene is okay, except for the fact that audiences are getting older and older, don't drink when they go out, and have to be home in bed by 9pm. Yeah, RIGHT.

There are a few younger hot musicians in Melbourne trying hard to create a bit of a scene.
