Bare Jazz – Not only jazz-fans will enjoy it

I am not a particular fan of jazz, even though my brother is trying to convince me that I like it. However, I am a big fan of Bare Jazz (only jazz) – a combined jazz music store and café/bar in the town centre, only a ten minute walk from the train station. They have one of the most charming backyards in town!

Inside you’ll find a cosy music shop with people who know what they’re talking about (heard from jazz enthusiasts who also claim they know what they’re talking about) and on the second floor you can buy coffee, cakes, beer or wine – and parts of the floor are open so you can look down to the music store.

It is the perfect place for a small break, or a place to chill for a while. The music is usually played at a comfortable level, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Sometimes there is also live music. The people you meet here are a mix of people enjoying jazz and people just enjoying the backyard and the nice atmosphere. I don’t have many places in the busiest part of the city centre that I visit often – but this one is well worth a visit.
