Superman? Not even a glimpse.....!


Sorry I haven't been around much the last two days, we went out on Friday night and I had one glass of wine too many and suffered the consequences the next day :)) It was so worth it. Aimee's been telling us about The Jazz Cellar for a while and on the spur of the moment we decided..let's do it! We figured it had to be something really special as the booking arrangements were 'unusual' to say the least. We were advised to get there early, 4.30 ish, even though the band only started playing at 7.30.. with the capacity for only 100, tickets sold out fast. This has to be one of the most eclectic queues I've seen anywhere, I'm not sure who looked the oddest, it could have been P and his brother in their jackets haha!.....
The phone box 'opened' at five, and this was the scene that awaited at the bottom of the stairs. When I was researching links for this post, I read one review that said The Jazz Cellar was such a cool gig, way too cool for Perth...well you know what I say to that oui!  Get out there matey and you'll see there are many such cool spots in Perth...
Once we'd secured our table by paying the entrance fee, taking our glasses and placing them on our chosen table, I did say it was a bit offbeat, we left in search of dinner and returned around seven to find this sign on the door..phew thank goodness our table was safely booked and waiting for us to take in the show. I'll show you tomorrow what all the hype is about and end by saying a guy playing a brass instrument whether he be twenty or seventy will always be a seriously cool cat :) Hope you had a fab weekend and are ready to face a new week, I learnt one thing this weekend..two glasses of wine is my limit, pathetic huh! Take care.....

  2. Your comment about how cool people look playing a brass instrument even if they are 70 may inspire me to take up playing the trombone again. My wife would probably disagree, however.

  11. Love that entrance. For a minute I thought you were in England :). I have been to a very chic club in Paris in a basement...casual and relaxed but no English call box for an entrance. Looking forward see more tomorrow.

  16. Wow!!! What fun!!! Looks like a 60's coffee house with the "beatnik" look to it...or maybe the poetry reading spot with the hippie look...or....
    It does look like a fun spot though!!! Glad you were able to get your table back after skipping out for dinner!!!

  17. I've decided to catch up with blogs mid air on my flight back home. Gotta love technology. I just experienced a similar weekend visiting friends but, fortunately I avoided any morning/day after residual effects. This place looks so cool and it sounds like you had a great time. I love that phone box entry.

  24. who wouldn't want to go there? It looks awesome! My husband would never stand in line so I'd have to go w/ someone MUCH younger. :)

  28. Hi Andrew
    No, the drinks aren't for standing in line. We don't sell any alcohol (or anything else for that matter). We charge an entrance fee of $25, and people bring their own drinks and food. We sell out every week by about 5.30. The band plays from 7.30 to 10.30.
    Regards, Roy of the Jazz Cellar.
