It may not look like much from the outside, but Copenhagen Jazzhouse has been central to the jazz scene in Copenhagen—as well as Denmark—since it opened in 1990 to fill the gap left by the closure of legendary jazz club Montmartre
, which reopened in 2010. Jazzhouse is one of the most important jazz venues in the world, and presents more than 200 concerts a year that both showcase up-and-coming talent and bring big international names to the city. One of the main hosts of the Copenhagen Jazz Festival held every July, the Jazzhouse comprises a number of different clubs, including Classic Jazz Club, the more contemporary, improv Jazznow! As well as Swing Pigalle for lovers of big band swing. The nightclub runs every Fri-Sat after the concerts, as well as the upstairs cocktail bar Herluf.
