    Really enjoyed discovering Trinity Buoy Wharf and lovely jazz music in London a few weeks ago! They did a wonderful job to make the room really cosy and the 2 artists playing were really good, making us discover rythm from all over the world! Really recommended 🙂

    Had a lovely evening at trinity boy wharf. One of the best gigs I’ve been to in a while! The voices of Mishka Adams and Beto Caletti were so angelic and they played effortlessly for over two hours beautiful tunes from South America. The chemistry between them was amazing. The place is very cozy and beautifully decorated full of fairy lights. The rest of the Jazz evenings are not to miss for sure!

    I went to see the Grand Union Orchestra All Stars on 7th of August at Trinity Buoy Wharf. It was quite intimate and special. The vibe reminds me of Sofar sounds, as it felt very cosy with the fairy lights. The place had a bar and you are seated beside tables so you can eat some food (which you pre-order so you can eat during the intermission). I thoroughly enjoyed the jazz and the fusion of global music. Who knew that the Chinese harp (guzheng) would sound so nice when playing South African tunes? It makes for a great small group or date night activity when you want to chill.

  4. I went to the Grand Union Orchestra All Stars with my friend on a Wednesday night and we had such good fun! Lovely evening listening to great music at an amazing venue! The global music influences were definitely evident but the whole performance was very jazzy, vibrant and entertaining.

    The venue was gorgeous, I’d never been before and even though it was a bit hard to find and felt like in the middle of nowhere it was really worth finding. It felt like an exclusive, private concert and the atmosphere was lovely! Overall a great evening with great music – I can really recommend it and would definitely go back. We had a such fabulous time!
