Owner description: The Jam House is your one stop destination for food, drink, and live music.Dusky purple lights cast romantic shadows on the walls of this funky, jazz-centric venue. Guests dine on the balcony above the main stage where soulful musicians entertain throughout the evening. This is one venue where you can eat, drink and dance to your heart's content

Have visited previously and resident band were excellent. Was in Edinburgh and what a disappointment ! Live entertainment was dull! Not a good advertisement for a 'Wedding Band'. Would opt for somewhere else next time.

I visited the Jam House on a living social deal and the food was lovely! However we were very disappointed with the entertainment and ambience of the venue, which was the main reason for visiting. I travelled all the way from London to have a night out with my boyfriend who lives near Edinburgh and had heard good things about it and the website said live entertainment started at 7.30pm and live band at 9.30pm. But when we went nothing started until 8pm and then between 9-10.15pm there was no live entertainment. Just recorded CD music playing which wasn't very good! We were told there was only a 7pm avialable, so was surprised and frustrated to see several tables available for the whole time we were there. Eating at 8 or 8.30pm would have been much better especially as we ended up sitting there for an hour with no entertainment. When the live band did start, it sounded terrible as they were doing sound checks and playing at the same time as the recorded music. When we left about 11pm the place was still very empty so not much of a live enterainment venue!

First time here and really enjoyed it. The food was very nice, wine started at £15 a bottle and the place had a good atmosphere. Wishbone Ash were playing, not my kind of music although I did enjoy the support act. Would definitely come again. If there was a band I wanted to see I'd book a table for a meal rather than just buy the concert ticket as it could work out better value.

Went to the jam house after watching the lion king,pretty quiet the DJ made up for this by playing some fantastic tunes. Everyone in the place seemed to be up for a good time which made the lack of numbers seem not to be a problem.Bar staff their usual 1st class job always polite & always a smile & a thankyou. Goodnight will deffo return on my next visit to Edinburgh.
