About

Our History

The Jazz Kitchen opened its doors in 1994 as Indy’s premier destination for jazz and beyond. Recognized as one of the “Top 100 Jazz Clubs in the World” by Downbeat Magazine, The Jazz Kitchen presents a wide variety of local, regional and international jazz artists in an intimate 140 seat supper club style venue. Past notable performers include Harry Connick Jr, Ray Brown, JJ Johnson, Jane Monheit, Maynard Ferguson, Billy Cobham, Diane Schuur, John Scofield, Soulive, James Moody, David “Fathead” Newman, Dee Dee Bridgewater and 1000’s more in our 22 year history.

The entire experience would not be complete without our NOLA meets Midwest cuisine. A touch of the “Big Easy” represented by Satchmo’s Etoufee, Not-So-Cajun Chicken, ‘po boys and Crescent City Crab Cakes compliment midwest fresh-from-the-butcher steaks, chops & burgers. Fresh seafood, vegetarian faire and decadent desserts make for the perfect night out.

Not to be forgotten is a full bar with wine gems, inventive craft cocktails and local craft beer on tap.

The Jazz Kitchen also specializes in catered events either in our private banquet space or at your home or office.

In all, we’re the perfect spot for a date, a special night out and of course, great jazz entertainment.
