Discover the five best restaurants and bars to enjoy live music around the world.
The Ned, London
Set in the former Midland Bank building in the heart of the City of London, The Ned boasts an impressive music schedule. Highlights include swinging jazz trios, moody blues bands and sensual soul singers. Whether meeting friends over a glass of wine, or enjoying a sumptuous light bite, live music fills this historic venue during evenings and weekends.
Perch, Los Angeles
Relax in the stylish surroundings of this laid-back rooftop lounge in downtown LA. A live band takes to the stage nearly seven days a week, serenading guests with jazz-inspired tunes as they dine on the restaurant's open-air patio. As the sun sets, live music is replaced by a house DJ spinning classic tunes, to which guests can dance into the small hours.
Park Hyatt, Tokyo
Dubbed 'Tokyo’s most spectacular venue for live music', the New York Bar at the Park Hyatt is renowned for its nightly bill of top international jazz artists. Situated on the 52nd floor, guests will swoon over the sweeping nightscape views from the bar's panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows as they relax to the soothing sounds of classic jazz.
Bogobiri House, Lagos
Bogobiri House is something of a local institution. Known for its vibrant music scene by night, and rich artistic presence by day, this cultural hub provides a welcome retreat from the Lagos buzz. Situated in the upscale neighbourhood of Ikoyi, the venue hosts a range of events from TARUWA - a platform for new talent in "spoken word" - to Jazz and Afrobeat shows featuring established local performers.
Le China, Paris
Le China is arguably one of Paris's most stylish clubs, as the romantic hybrid combines gourmet Chinese cuisine with delicious tropical cocktails. The venue's downstairs bar is home to a lively performance space, with an eclectic programme including jazz jam sessions, folk singers, and breathtaking burlesque shows.
