"The club's original incarnation in Newington Green was very different from its current one."
London clubs: all change at the Jazz Cafe
You couldn’t get much more different than the original Jazz Cafe and the current one. This venue started off in Newington Green and looked as if it had been a house. The bands played in the window, so you could stop to see the likes of Evan Parker parping away on his sax as you were walking past, if that was your wont. The Jazz Cafe moved to its far plusher Camden premises in 1990.
