One of the city's best jazz clubs, Hot Five offers a great choice of live jazz and blues amid a buzzing atmosphere close to the city center. Top musicians supply the entertainment. This spot, hosts live jazz and blues as well as the occasional acoustic, folk or all-out jam session. It’s a modern but intimate space, with seating around small tables, both fronting the stage and on an upper balcony.

The place is ok. But the concerts start more than one hour after the time they were scheduled for. Which i understand business wise but it's kind of disrespectful for the customer.More

We went to Hotfive to see a Beatles tribute band. The place was short but very well decorated, with pictures of some monsters of jazz, like Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. I hope we'll be back soon!

Live band played all night till closing time. We ordered a whisky & beer and sat down to enjoy the show. One of the best experiences we have had in porto! If you are into good live music this is the place!

Not true! They're having a The Doors cover and I came here for the jazz. Spoiler alert: The Doors is NOT jazz. How misleading of you.
