Kitsilano Jazz Club Closes Doors

cellar-jazz-club

Cellar Jazz, the well-liked but financially strapped Kitsilano jazz club at 3611 West Broadway, put on its last show to a sold out crowd on Wednesday night. The club was named one of the world’s best jazz clubs by Downbeat Magazine. It’s been a neighbourhood live music venue for 13 years.

Owner Corey Weeds told CBC that he’s passionate about playing music, running a record label and booking performers. But, he does not enjoy managing the restaurant, something that has required his undivided attention. The venue featured international musicians and gave up-and-coming performers a stage to play on. But not all is lost: Weeds continues to book concerts at different locations, and said he may eventually consider opening another club.
