Fodor's Expert Review Ronnie Scott's

Soho Live Music Fodor's Choice

Britain's most famous jazz club has attracted the biggest names—from Stan Getz to Ella Fitzgerald and Jimi Hendrix—since opening nearby on Gerrard Street in 1959 (moving to its current location in 1965). It's usually dark, hot, and crowded, and thankfully the food and table service are now up to par. The ultracool James Bond mood can't be beat, despite the sad departure of the eponymous founder and saxophonist, Ronnie Scott, who died in 1996. A full program of free-form jazz sets and shows take place every night, with additional late gigs on Friday and Saturday. Reservations are recommended.
