Opened in March this year in a derelict 108 year old building, Ellington Jazz Club (named after influential jazz figure Duke Ellington), is an intimate New York style live jazz venue with an upstairs modern cocktail bar and function areas. Owner, Graham Wood and Bernard Kong, are responsible for the venue design in conjunction with Renae Tapley (interior architect). Downstairs, the feel is very much cabaret like with table service being offered to those lucky enough to get a seat. This venue is all about the music folks, so while the artists are playing make your way upstairs if you want to natter, you’ll still be able to listen to the jazz and see a live feed from the stage. In addition to the mainstream jazz acts that one would expect to see at a jazz club, The Ellington features the “Late Night Groove Series” on Friday and Saturday evening to showcase Perth’s up-and-coming jazz, soul, and R&B artists. The programme also features everything from jam sessions, big bands, fusion groups, the finest vocalists, new music ensembles, Hammond organ trios and quartets and cutting edge improvising ensembles. The Ellington Jazz Club has music offering has quickly earned the respect of the local bar industry earning a nomination for Best Music Offering at the Bartender Magazine Australian Bar Awards ’09.
