The Jazz Cafe is fighting for survival and we need your support.

by The Jazz Cafe, Camden in London, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

The current crisis obviously means we aren't hopeful of being operational any time soon - current estimates look like it will be a minimum of 6 months closure from (on top of three months closed up to this point). 

Therefore every £31,000 raised will help us secure our future for another month while we're closed and mean our staff can return to their jobs. Plus we will consequently be able to support all the strands of the live industry who need music venues like us to survive. Tour managers, rental companies, roadies, agents and so many more.


For the first time in 30 years, we have shut our doors with no guarantee of reopening. Just like so many others, we are facing the biggest challenge in our history.

Sadly, without your help, there is now the very real prospect that The Jazz Cafe will not survive.

How has it come to this?

Since closing due to the pandemic, we’ve had absolutely no income. However, we still have outgoings, most significantly rent. Our overheads while we remain closed are £31,000 a month.

We have received no rent relief from our landlord and we do not qualify for a government grant.

Music venues will be one of the last things to return after the virus, and we expect to remain closed for some time, as we head closer and closer to bankruptcy.

How can you help?

We’re not asking for charitable donations. Instead, we're inviting our community to buy Jazz Café experiences now, to be redeemed when we reopen. This will give us the cash flow we need to survive the next few months while we remain closed.

By purchasing one of the below options, however big or small; not only will you be helping The Jazz Cafe survive, you'll be protecting the livelihood of hundreds of people. You’ll be ensuring our musicians, sound engineers, resident DJs, bar staff, chefs and security have jobs to come back to.

Somewhere on the horizon live music will return, but without your help, The Jazz Cafe may not be a part of it.
