Blue Room Jazz Club


Blue Room History:

Named after the famed 1930s Street Hotel club in the Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District, the Blue Room simultaneously honors the past and showcases the present names in jazz.A multifaceted exhibit highlighting the countless musicians who crafted "Kansas City jazz," a sound known all over the world, the Blue Room also provides a distinctive platform to present dynamic performances from the best local and national jazz talent in an intimate setting.Come down, bring your instrument and sit in at the weekly Blue Monday Jam - or just take in the sounds of one of Kansas City's best jam sessions.Big bands typically perform the last Monday of each month, and our Latin Jazz/Salsa series gets shakin' on the last Thursday of each month (except where otherwise noted on the calendar). At the Blue Room, upcoming bands, seasoned veterans of the local jazz scene, national talent and internationally renowned jazz artists share the spotlight.

Always great music!! Home of KC jazz and bebop! Come see this iconic gem of KC and fall back in time to jamming with jazz giants! Be sure to stop in at the museum next door. Also how about an authentic jam - check out the Mutual Musicians Foundation around the corner on Highland at 1-5 am Friday and Saturday. 100 yrs continuous operation protecting and promoting our legends. Not up for the late night jam? Check out their new Sunday jams at 5:30 pm!!! You won't be disappointed ❣️ 🎢🎹🎷🎸🎺πŸ₯πŸŽ·πŸΈ

Had a wonderful time listening to Blair Bryant. This young man is so talented and can play a guitar so good. My only draw back about this club is when you order a drink they put so much ice in the drink you can't really taste the alcohol in it.

Nice clean and friendly. Come to listen and drink a adult drink. It was a strong Manhattan.

It had been nearly 4-years since l'd been at the Blue Room. James Ward on bass guitar was fantastic as always; the Blue Room on 18th and Vine is the place for smooth music.
