Jazzin' it up at the 606 Club London
Hidden away on a quiet street behind the Kings Road in Chelsea, London is a doorway to one of the best jazz clubs in Europe, 606 Club London. You could easily walk by it as the signage is less than flash. The entrance is a gated, arched doorway that provides entrance into the basement venue. Once inside the metal stairs, brick walls and stark decoration gives a truly 'underground' experience.
