The Ellington Jazz Club
With its sophisticated, New York-style ambience, the Ellington Jazz Club heralds the beginning of a new
era in Perth nightlife.
New York City holds a special place in the heart
of jazz culture. After the birth of the genre in the
Deep South in the early 1900s, the city allowed
the music and its culture to flourish with specially
devoted clubs that sprung up across the Big Apple.
Throughout the 20th Century, jazz clubs
became a fixture of New York nightlife and they
continue to thrive today.
Perth is now lucky enough to welcome a taste
of this world into its own nightlife with the
Ellington Jazz Club on Beaufort Street.
Modelled on the original New York jazz clubs,
the Ellington oozes effortless cool and laidback
sophistication -- the essence of the jazz movement.
Setting the scene downstairs are a nine-foot
Steinway grand piano; a cluster of round, wooden,
cabaret-style tables; and spotlights focused on the
There is seating for 80 and standing room for 50.
Upstairs is a funky cocktail bar with booth
seating and standing room for 125 people.
Guests can choose to chat and socialise in this
area, or wander downstairs to enjoy the live music.
The space can also be divided into three
separate areas for different-sized functions.
The Miles Davis Room holds approximately
15 people, the John Coltrane Room holds about
30 people and the Dizzy Gillespie Room holds
up to 80 people. The Ellington serves as a venue
that treats deserving artists with respect, while
allowing patrons to see the world s finest jazz
musicians in a comfortable, intimate setting.
As a result, the Ellington s program consists
of 35 to 45 live music shows a month, featuring
local, interstate and international jazz musicians.
With cabaret-style table service, the Ellington
serves food from its tapas menu until 2am on
weekends and midnight on weeknights.
Bookings well in advance are strongly
recommended and the Ellington staff can work
with you to help devise a function plan to best
suit your needs.
