My Personal Guide to Best Jazz Clubs of Moscow
Jazz and Moscow are among some of my greatest loves. So, I simply cannot miss the chance to write about best jazz clubs of Moscow for our blog readers!
As I have already mentioned in the post about jazz clubs of St. Petersburg
, Russia is home to talented jazz musicians and it is particularly true when we speak about our capital. Why not listen to them playing live in a relaxing atmosphere when you visit the main cities of our country? Esse
Piatnickaya 27/str 3A
Esse has been my favourite jazz place in Moscow for many years. No trip to the capital is complete without visiting Esse for me! Jazz lives here
– Esse's slogan says and it is certainly true.
The club is located on always busy Piatnickaya Street in Zamoskvorechye, a step away from Novokuzneckaya/Tretyakovskaya Metro Stations. Zamoskvorechye
is one of the most charming neighbourhoods of central Moscow, where predominantly merchants lived before the revolution and you can still feel the patriarchal spirit of that epoch walking down Zamoskvorechye streets.
You can come to Esse for dinner with live music or even brunch after your visit to the main building of the Tretyakov Gallery, located nearby, or walk there from Red Square/Bolotny Island/Kremlin area, such walk will probably take you not more than 15 minutes!
Esse's main hall with red brick walls is located on the second floor (or the first floor, depending on how you count floors in your country!) and right behind the arch around the bar area you will find another hall, where you can listen to all the concerts in the main hall at a slightly lower price (if the events are ticketed). On that stage, a lot of prominent Russian and foreign musicians perform regularly. Most evening performances are ticketed, you can book tickets through Esse's website or by phone.
