“Excellent friendly bar”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

Visited the blues cafe bar on a Wednesday night whilst staying in Harrogate on business. I don't drink and soda water was free bar man and women were really friendly and remember what I was drinking. Music was excellent started at 9.30. Think the only thing the place misses for it to be totally authentic is a smoked filled room.

“best bar in Yorkshire”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

If you love music this is a not to be missed experience ! I live 5 mins from this bar and spend many a Sunday afternoon in awe of the talent. the bar is so small that you feel like your part of the band A truly unique venue .Dont bother going to Betty's for some over priced cucumber sarnies walk on by and see some proper Yorkshire hospitality!

“Popular Jazz Bar”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Great for all ages interested in music. Live entertainment most nights. Only small but has a traditional atmosphere and does good food. Bit like Ronnie Scotts on a small scale

“A great find”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We came across this bar by chance just looking for a drink and something to eat on a Saturday afternoon, what a fantastic place, good beer, nice friendly atmosphere, good music and the sandwich with home cooked chips was one of the best I have had. I would have been happy to stay here all weekend and listen to the live music that evening, unfortunately my wife does not share my excellent taste in music! It has the same feel as some of the bars in lower east side New York without the tipping. A must visit for anyone visiting Harrogate, you will find it just down the hill from Betty`s Tea Rooms.

“A great night out”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

Had a really great night enjoying some liquid refreshment and some solid musical entertainment. Sure it is like being a sardine in a can but that just helps the overall atmosphere which pumps. Going to Harrogate then you must check this place out. Reminded me of venues I was fortunate to play at myself.
