A while ago I moved to Berlin. Being a huge fan of live jazz music I was really excited to move to the jazz capital of Europe, as Berlin is frequently called.
Berlin has a lot of amazing jazz clubs, from well-known and established jazz clubs such as the A-Trane, the b-flat or the Quasimodo, to smaller and less well known clubs such as the Donau 115, the Hangar 49 or the Hat Bar.
I quickly came to realize, however, that there was no good overview of all jazz clubs in Berlin. There was no convenient way to know which club was playing what and when, or when there were jam sessions at which club. I decided to change that.
Jazzity is what I call “Your pocket guide to jazz in Berlin“. Jazzity not only gives you an overview of the jazz clubs in Berlin, it also aggregates the programmes from all the jazz clubs’ websites and makes them accessible in an easy and convenient way.
Jazzity does the leg work for you: It looks at all the different websites of all the jazz clubs and brings their programme to one place: jazzity.net. Jazzity offers three main benefits:
In the PROGRAMME section on jazzity.net you find a guide with all the concerts and jazz events that are on a given day. You can filter by location and by type of jazz. Jazzity also filters through the description of the jazz events and tags the events by genres, such as blues, funk, soul, vocal jazz, etc. Just click on any of the tags and see all events with that tag.
This is what the original idea for Jazzity was: An overview of all jazz clubs in Berlin, including address, contact details, location, a short description, and links to reviews.
Not sure which club is closest? Just fire up the jazzity map and see which clubs are closest.
