Lovers of live jazz who are planning a trip to Berlin should make sure they stop by Quasimodo. This is one of the most popular jazz bars in the whole city and the venue is usually packed, especially when big bands are playing.
At Quasimodo, visitors actually get two venues for the price of one. The top floor features a large bar and restaurant, and this is the place to head to if you want to listen to live music. While Quasimodo is famous for being a jazz establishment, visitors will also have the chance to listen to bands that play everything from fresh funk to blues and soul.
Quasimodo also boasts a large club downstairs which also hosts live jazz and has a slightly more vibrant atmosphere than the upstairs establishment, which is a good place to unwind with a drink and perhaps a snack. The downstairs venue regularly attracts famous performers such as Lisa Stansfield and is a great place to really let your hair down.
When it comes to drinks, both venues offer a range of beers that you would expect to find in a Berlin bar as well as spirits from all over the world. The drinks are reasonably priced, while the food is good quality and Quasimodo is a popular place for groups of friends to meet for dinner while getting their groove on to some juicy jazz.
Quasimodo hosts a number of high profile gigs and visitors who want to catch one of these shows should make sure that they book their tickets in advance. However, one of the best things about this venue is that great music and a good atmosphere is guaranteed even if you choose to chill out in the garden. In addition to special gigs, Quasimodo also hosts jam nights that are free of charge and everyone is welcome to join in the fun and show off their musical skills. All in all, if want to hear some fresh and tasty live music while chilling out in Berlin, Quasimodo is the place to be.
