The Show

HOURS: The club opens at 6 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 3 pm on Sundays. Patrons may arrive up to 15 minutes before opening. Seating is assigned upon arrival.

Food and drink is served from opening time and during the show. For more information, please check our Menu page. For the monthly jam sessions on the first Sunday evening, the club is open from 8 pm to 10 pm and serves only drinks.

Because we have two shows each night, patrons attending the first show will be asked to leave at the end of the music performance so we can prepare the room for the patrons attending the second show.

ENVIRONMENT: The Jazz Forum is a “listening room” first and foremost. We encourage those who want to socialize at the club to come early. During the shows, we ask that patrons keep their voices at a whisper.

The Jazz Forum club has a capacity of 85 people. We do not offer seating reservations. Venue map is for illustrative purposes only.

What to Bring

Patrons cannot pick up tickets in advance. Patrons may be asked to present ticket reservations at the Box Office, either on a smartphone (preferred) or a printed copy.
