INTRODUCING LIVE JAZZ
This month we are proud to introduce a new Jazz night to the London Music Scene at Mascalzone Putney!
Thursday July 12th will be the first Live Jazz Music Event at the London locations of Mascalzone Italian Restaurant with more to follow South of the River in Putney and in North London in Edgware.
MASCALZONE LIVE JAZZ RESTAURANT, LONDON
Following on from the popular Jazz Night at the Houston location, Mascalzone are now incorporating live Jazz music at both London locations.
Jazz music has always worked well with good food and drink. Traditional Jazz Bars in London, such as Ronnie Scott’s and Pizza Express, Soho have built a reputation on great entertainment, great food and a great atmosphere.
Mascalzone, Putney has always had excellent food and a fun atmosphere as anyone who has attended or hosted an event there can vouch to. Together with this, the restaurant typically attracts a young and vibrant clientele thanks to its well placed location next to the river, the tube and on the bustling Putney High Street.
It was, therefore, only natural to establish a Live Music night there and Thursday night Jazz over the Summer months seemed to be the perfect fit!
