Fifteen gastronomic corners in the Palermo neighborhood offer their customers the possibility of having dinner in the company of very good live jazz music. A good idea that promises to become inserted and stay in every Buenos Aires week night to provide a good atmosphere.
As from September 2003, various jazz bands have been circulating around pubs and restaurants in Palermo Viejo. This undertaking born in the mind of musician Gustavo Firmenich and fostered by the Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires
is working under the name of “La ruta del jazz” (The route of jazz).
Just like tango has its own place in this city, La ruta del jazz was born as a complement to be listened to and experienced by tourists and the inhabitants of Buenos Aires. For some years, Palermo Viejo has been in fashion: costume designers, decorators, architects and a great number of restaurants, pubs and night life sites have given life to this well-known porteño neighborhood.
Most of the shops included in the route of jazz are concentrated within a ten-block radio, offering a wide range of styles and trends.
The various groups rotate, making each night differ from the previous one, thus trying to make shows as homogeneous as possible.
Prices are modest and, although jazz is not intended to be transformed into a massive genre, it can become a popular style in which the audiences do not have to be experts to spend an unusual evening.
