New York City holds a special place
in 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.
Perth now has its own taste of this world
with the Ellington Jazz Club on Beaufort
Street. Modelled on the original New York jazz
clubs, the Ellington oozes effortless cool and
Setting the scene downstairs are a nine-foot
Steinway grand piano; round, cabaret-style
tables; and spotlights focused on the stage.
Upstairs is a funky cocktail bar with booth
seating and standing room for 125 people.
Guests can chat and socialise in this area, or
wander downstairs to enjoy the live music.
This upstairs space can be divided into three
separate areas for different-sized functions.
The Ellington’s mission is to treat 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 until 2am on weekends
and midnight on weeknights. Booking in
advance is recommended and the Ellington
staff can help devise a function to best suit you.
COOL AND LAIDBACK
A nine-foot Steinway grand
piano is the centrepiece of
