Bare Jazz – Not only jazz-fans will enjoy it

I am not particularly a fan of jazz, even though my brother tried for years 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 center, only a ten-minute walk from the train station. They have one of the most charming backyards in town, and it´s lovely in summer. 

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. They do not serve food, but sometimes they have sandwiches.

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 center that I visit often – but this one is well worth a visit.
