Zagat 2014

"Savory", "upscale" Asian fare is served "with a side of jazz" at this "unique" Madison "gem" where "tastefully done" performances from "big-name artists" put it "over the top" ... the "welcoming" service and "lively crowd" make for a "great night out."

"Fun and romantic, with an international vibe, Shanghai Jazz hits all the right notes."

Shanghai Jazz opened in October 1995 and has been named "One of the Top 100 Jazz Clubs in the World." We have earned rave reviews for our food, service and ambience from the New York Times, Star Ledger, Zagat Survey and Inside New Jersey.

Our philosophy is warm hospitality, gourmet Asian cuisine inspired by the seasons, a well-focused wine list and a full bar with almost a dozen beers on tap, including our own micro-brew Shanghai Jazz Ale. And of course exceptional value. We are proud to present world class artists 6 nights a week with no music charge except for special events.
