Who wouldn’t like to spend a night in a trendy club, listening to some feet-tapping, hand-clapping cool live music? Combining the glamour of the top jazz club of the Big Apple with the Portuguese traditions and friendly atmosphere, HotFive Blues & Jazz Club is one of the country’s leading music venues. Every kind of drink, an explosive line up of bluesy guitarists, vocal stars and jazzy pianists… At the HotFive you find all the ingredients for the perfect evening.
Jazz is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Portugal. Perhaps, its breath-taking landscapes on the sea and excellent culinary delights are the most well-known ‘features’ of the country. However, since April 2006, with the opening of the HotFive Blues & Jazz Club, located in downtown Porto, Portugal has started to gain more and more the reputation of a ‘musical city’ in the international music scene.
The HotFive is a jazz and blues club, presenting live music every week, from Wednesdays to Sundays. With an interior design that takes inspiration from the ‘crème’ of New York‘s jazz bars, the venue has transformed Porto into the place to be for both jazz fans and musicians. Immerse in the typical joyful and laid-back Portuguese feeling, the HotFive provides a unique experience to its customers.
An incredible bar, with its wide selection of beers, local wines and cocktails that remind the Big Apple’s most elegant lounges, makes sure that everyone enjoys each evening in the best way possible.
Jazz and blues are the HotFive’s most popular genres, with the first ever Festival de Blues do Porto held there in the beginning of this February. The venue is one of the country’s most prestigious stages for national blues and jazz musicians. All the big names have stopped here at least once. Also for international stars touring across the country, the venue represents a ‘must’.
Workshops, jam sessions and concerts, bearded bluesmen, beautiful jazz women and, more in general, very talented musicians. At the HotFive Blues & Jazz Club you find this and a lot more, so make sure to write the name down…you’ll love this place, guaranteed!
