> 606 Club
The 606 is a well known musicians haunt and it is not uncommon for informal jam sessions to happen here with friends who have come down after gigs elsewhere. As well as members, musicians and local residents the Club appeals to anyone looking for a late night supper while enjoying some live jazz - it reaches a cross section, both young and old.
The Club currently employs 2 bands a night Tuesday to Wednesday and one Band Thursday to Monday. With live jazz seven nights a week and Sundays being the special ‘singers’ night every night can be the best night. Fridays and Saturdays it is essential to book in advance.
The 606 Club has existed as a Jazz Club Restaurant for more than 30 years, being run by musician Steve Rubie since 1976. Originally a small 30 seater basement venue at 606 Kings Road, it built up a solid reputation through the 70’s and 80’s amongst musicians and audiences as the Jazz hang-out. The popularity of the Club amongst musicians led to the policy of only booking British based musicians in order to support the local scene, which has continued unchanged to this day. Eventually the Club out grew it’s capacity and in May 1988 it moved to it’s present basement site at 90 Lots Road.
