The Vortex Jazz Club – Live Contemporary Jazz Music Venue


The Vortex Jazz Club is one of London’s premiere Jazz and live music venue.

Starting out as a jazz club in 1987, the Vortex Jazz Club primarily features live contemporary jazz.

However following the acquisition of that building by property developers, the club relocated in 2005 to the Dalston Culture House where it is at the heart of the newly-created Gillett Square, one of mayor Ken Livingstone’s 100 public spaces for London.

The Square opened in November 2006 with a performance by Andy Sheppard’s Saxophone Massive, composed of 200 saxophonists.

The street in front of the club was renamed Bailey Place in December 2007, after guitarist Derek Bailey.

A volunteer-led, not-for-profit organization, the club provides a platform for music outside of the mainstream, including jazz, improvised and experimental music.
