Now near the Bund, the House of Blues and Jazz, run by celebrated TV host Lin Dongfu, has been a second living room for those hungry for quality live music and a home for blues and jazz musicians from all over the world since 1995.
With elegant interior decor of dark wooden ceilings, stairs and walkways - designed by Lin - that reflect the ambience of old Shanghai, the House of Blues and Jazz provides outstanding food and drinks. Most important though, it offers live jazz and blues music. Lin invites prominent bands - many from Boston and New Orleans - every three months to ensure the quality of performance.
Right now, Mike Null and The Soulcasters are rocking the house.
The style of the music is like the bar - original and authentic. It is a place to relax with a drink, perhaps a fine cigar, sit on an old-fashioned sofa and chat with Lin, all while listening to some of the best blues and jazz Shanghai offers.
The House of Blues and Jazz first introduced live bands in 1996, when a British volunteer from Reuters played guitar on weekends. In 1998, jazz and blues bands from all over the world started to play here regularly.
