Mahogany Hall is the oldest jazz club in Bern and an institution. They host great artists and bands, with a main focus on blues and jazz, but also other styles. The who is who of the scene has already played there.
I come here for great concerts in a cheerful and intimate atmosphere. To the latter, their enthusiastic staff (mostly volunteers) contribute greatly. The concerts are seated, so you can fully unwind and appreciate the music, without sore feet and back pain.
Last but not least, their location is killer! It is just next to the bear pit and the river. Besides, the rose garden is in walking distance. I adore to combine those views with a visit in the Mahagonere (how insiders call it ;-).
Bonus: If you visit in December, I highly recommend to have a mug of mulled wine on their riverside terrace – it is a heavenly experience!
