A little bit of Jazz in Palermo

Fifteen gastronomic corners in the Palermo neighborhood offer their customers the possibility of having dinner in the company of very good live jazz music.

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.

My experience in Las cortaderas –Charcas 3647– was very “relaxing”:

Thursday after 10pm, dinner, dim candle lights in each table and some friends are the example of this night experience.

Beyond the music accompaniment, it was a true show for my eyes. Countless instruments circulated on a small stage. The golden brightness of the wind instruments, accompanied by the coming and going of strings, made us totally give in to the magical atmosphere of the restaurant.

This is a good option, especially for week evenings, as shows start between 9 and 10pm.
