Housed in the historic Helms Bakery building (what else?), at 3233 Helms Avenue, Los Angeles, The Jazz Bakery boasts only world-class musicians. From its humble beginnings in a photo studio, JB has grown into an entertainment center of international reputation and the venue of choice by artists who come to Los Angeles to perform.
The world's only year-round 7-night a week non/profit jazz venue is not your average jazz club. Nor is it too stuffy to afford the intimate atmosphere that jazz lovers crave. The performance space holds 230 comfortable seats facing a large stage that can easily accommodate a big band and has great sight lines.
