Upstairs Jazz Bar & Grill is hailed as one of the finest live-music jazz venues in Montreal and in the country—pros dropping in to listen as well as perform. Upstairs Jazz Bar & Grill is a small and intimate club downtown, so there really isn't a bad seat in the house.
Local legends, such as renowned drummer Jim Doxas, blues queen Dawn Tyler Watson, and singer Ranee Lee as well as international musicians often headline at Upstairs, which was the first off-site jazz club featured by the Montreal International Jazz Festival. The intimate club has been selected by Downbeat Magazine as one of the world’s 150 most important jazz clubs. The sitting (arrival at 6:00 and no later than 6:30) requires that one order from the menu, but entrées are in the $15 range and main courses in the low to mid-$20s. The food is quite good. Cover charge: $30 (including tax). A great – and memorable - evening to warm yourselves with fine live jazz, drinks, food, and Harvard companions. We are limited to 16.
