About Us

We wish to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land The Ellington sits on, the Whadjuk (Perth region) people. We wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to elders both past and present.

As the patrons who pass through our doors and the musicians who perform on our stage alike will attest: The Ellington Jazz Club is Australia’s best jazz club. Featuring the cream of Australian talent, both local and interstate, in an intimate environment. World class music and warm hospitality in a music focused environment.

Reservations can be made for table seating online and we ask that you arrive and are seated before the performance begins.  If you have missed out on a table seat or have not booked, there are some bar stools available in the bar area. Be sure to arrive early to snap these up!

Check show pages for show start times and pricing. The Ellington opens half an hour before the first scheduled show time for the night, and closing times may vary.

The Ellington Jazz Club strives to present a wide range of musical styles including jazz, jazz derivatives, and jazz influenced music. We value gender equality, racial diversity and sexual orientation for our performers, staff, and patrons, with all being welcome. We strive to present the highest quality music possible in a safe, friendly and inclusive environment for all. The Ellington is a seven night a week jazz club that presents more than 600 shows per year and is internationally recognised as a wonderful place to perform and listen to music.
