Description: For nearly two decades, Notorious has became the main jazz spot in Buenos Aires. At 100 meters away from the traditional corner of Callao y Santa Fe, Notorious has the perfect combination of music and gastronomy, gathering at the same place a specialized records store, a bar, a restaurant and the venue with a beautiful garden. The main musicians from many different styles and countries have played there leaving at the air his magic and charm. Recommended by the Downbeat Magazine as one of the best Jazz Clubs in the world, is also perfect for many different situations, like breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner.

We had a great time here with Pablo Nemirovsky band, and the Saturday afternoon Brazilian sessions. Its intimate and the music is excellent. Postres, drinks and wine are excellent but food is poor...I dont advise having dinner here.

All jazz nights and some weekend afternoons in our big time favourite B.A. venue. They fit large bands on that tiny stage, take turns to come into the spotlight, it's like one big happy family. We are most impressed with the musicianship and level of talent here in B.A. Bravo Musos! and Bravo to the waiters and the cooks too. The meals are as good as they get in fact. My risotto was perfect . . . the way many cooks can't be bothered to do . . . it was just sublime! The food is really good and inexpensive. The waiters are inobtrusive and attentive at the same time. We've been back three times in two weeks . . . we love it so much. You can really count on being uplifted by the music that feeds your soul. The door charge is a small price to pay for the huge talent so don't be stingy . . . to see these folks on a big stage would cost three times this amount. Enjoy Notorious! What a great name!

Loved, loved, Noche Brazil. The volume was absolutely perfect. It was a great show, while still allowing you to eat. Wonderful experience to repeat.

You can even buy cd's and tee-shirts. The food is great, the staff and especially the music. Nice cozy place.
