A word from Cory Weeds Cellar Jazz Club
In 12 years Cory Weeds' Cellar Jazz Club has established itself as not only the top jazz venue in Vancouver, but as one of the top jazz clubs in the world. In an ambitious undertaking, club owner Cory Weeds bought the establishment in the summer of 2000 and quickly turned it into the premier jazz venue in Vancouver. The focus of the club was to promote Vancouver and Canadian jazz musicians. The room has seen visits by every major player from the Vancouver Scene and across Canada. In addition Weeds has brought in many of the major names on the international scene to the club either with their own band or more often then not, to join forces with the best that the Vancouver jazz community has to offer. Some of these international musicians to perform include David 'Fathead' Newman, Tom Harrell, Charles MacPherson, Benny Golson, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ed Thigpen, Kenny Garrett, Les McCann, Scott Hamilton, Joey Defrancesco, George Coleman and Eric Alexander.

    I normally tip 20% or more. The service was so bad that I did not provide any tip. We were ignored by our server (though when we did receive any attention, she was pleasant). She hovered over my shoulder when I was paying the bill to see what tip I would give her. I am certain she was angry that I gave her no tip, BUT we had no effective service.

    We were seated at a high table for two which gave us a perfect sight line to the stage. The servers were very friendly, the service of both food and drinks was very good and the food tasty.

    Such a treat for me on Mother's Day! Two hours of smooth jazz, elegant High Tea menu - quite adequate amounts for the four of us, sparkling raspberry champagne, wonderful ambience - great art to look at. I would recommend this experience to anyone seeking a unique Mother's Day memory. You won't be disappointed.

    Although the full meals were probably good enough, the snack menu left much to be desired. There were a couple of cheese dishes however, the type of cheese changes and with no idea what one is to expect disappointment predominates. There are several oddly named dishes and it is anyone's guess what will appear when ordered. The fee for these entry level snacks is not trivial given that you are putting out $10 each for the cover; therefore, I expect more for my hard earned snack dollars.

    Another fabulous evening of jazz. If you are a jazz enthusiast, this is the place for you. The Miles Black Octet was "outstanding". Cannot wait for their next performance. This is a night of music, if you are wanting to visit and talk, NOT for you. Food is secondary to the music.

    Love the BIG bands. Daniel Hersog Jazz Orchestra is a nice addition to the Jazz Scene. The music was great. He is a trumpet player, composer and bandleader of exceptional talent and he has a wonderful presence when in front of a crowd. We hope to see more of him and his orchestra in the future.

    Although not really a bar, this place is a gem in Vancouver, not only because it provides live jazz and blues 7 nights a week, but also because the music is of extremely high calibre and it is a club where you can go to actually HEAR the music - respect for the musicians and what they are doing is expected. Like a concert in a supper club setting, with a relaxed atmosphere. Let live music live.

    Another great evening of Jazz. Tuesdays is no cover, cheap beer. A great combination! The tribute of Sonny Rollins was fabulous, again, a full house. Tuesdays is also the one night there are no rules, so talking is "OK". If you are going for the music, be aware, noise included. Staff do a great job of keeping up with requests. Food is not bad, not great, yet.

    This is an excellent place to enjoy world class jazz with an attentive and quiet listening crowd. The wine list is very good and the service is excellent. The food however is fair at best. The featured Salmon was prepared with red beans and rice. The Salmon was somewhat dry being slightly overcooked. There was no sauce to accompany the fish and required much wine and water to consume. The crabcakes were very dry and the accompanying sauce was a small spot of mayonaise. The shrimp were small and unremarkable. The wine was excellent. I would suggest sticking to appetizers and the great wine/beer list.

    Another fabulous evening of jazz. The great Sax player, George Coleman, from New York, came to pay tribute to one of Vancouvers wonderful jazz musicians, Ross Taggart, who passed away last year at a much too young an age. You could hear a pin drop while the music was playing. The audience was so into the music of this quartet. Kudos to Miles Black, Jodi Proznik & Jesse Cahill. Outstanding! This is the spot for anyone who likes to listen to great jazz played by our own talented group of musicians plus the great guests that Cory brings in from Canada and the USA.

    A rare thing theses days, a wonderful music venue where audience members are quiet and the music takes centre stage. The food is OK, nothing special, but the service and atmosphere are great, and being able to just listen to live jazz is a treat. If you are going with a large group make sure that everyone knows it is a listening venue.

    Great, friendly atmosphere. The Capilano University big bands were amazing. It was quite crowded due to the large size of the bands, however everyone was accommodating and worked around the congestion.Our wine was excellent and the food very good. We ordered the 3 dip appetizer which was excellent but required more bread.The overall ambiance was fantastic and I would highly recommend this club to anyone.

    The Jazz Cellar is THEEEE place to hear jazz in Vancouver. The ambience is everything you imagine in a jazz club and the food is great. Patrons have come to listen to the music so only low key conversations. Even the larger birthday groups, tone down when the music starts. The groups are diverse and top quality.

The hamburgers were the best and the fries were awesome. This meal with 1 large glass of beer was more than satisfying. Together with the groove-jazz music was a real hit!
