Jazz Lounge

Relish the Brilliance.

Discover two of life’s perfectly matched pleasures.

Live jazz performances take place on Fridays and Saturdays from 8.30pm to 11.30pm.

Embedded into The Wellesley's culture is the love of live jazz. The building maintains its historic roots of love for music by hosting weekly jazz nights - Live at The Wellesley - where guests can enjoy the best of Italian cuisine, paired with the smooth sounds of live music.

Live at The Wellesley are housed in the intimate surroundings of the Jazz Lounge. Former home to the famous Pizza on the Park at Hyde Park Corner, where jazz greats such as Jamie Cullum, George Melly, Amy Winehouse and Barbara Cook regularly performed, the weekly live performances aim to provide a unique Knightsbridge jazz-dining experience.

There is no greater tribute to our famous musical heritage than to keep the tradition alive through Jazz Nights.
