PASSION FOR MUSIC AND FOOD

The Montreux Jazz Café was born of Claude Nobs’ passion for music and fine dining. The Festival founder, trained as a chef, designed them as a welcoming space where cuisine and music could combine in a way never seen before.
At the Festival, proximity between the biggest musicians and the public, comfort, and an eye for details result in historic concerts and encourage the appearance of memorable moments. It’s that fine touch and know-how that we wish to share with you in our restaurants, conceived to be ambassadors of the Montreux Jazz Festival.
We offer contemporary cuisine, and our menu includes dishes crafted with the very passion so characteristic of those inimitable Montreux moments: our famous B.B. Burger, Coquelet façon Quincy Jones, and the succulent Ella’s Cheesecake.
The Festival showed great vision in recording every single concert from the very beginning, and these archives have been recognized by UNESCO through inclusion in the “Memory of the World Register”. We invite you to relive this musical odyssey at our comfortable Café, which feature exclusive access to the archives.
In the area? On a trip around the world? Enjoy a relaxing and delicious interlude while listening to some of the most striking concerts from the Festival’s history.

MALIKA FAVRE MAKES THE POSTER DANCE!

The Montreux Jazz Festival gave carte blanche to French illustrator Malika Favre to create the poster for the 51st edition.
Malika Favre’s “free, strong, and sensual” women certainly convey a captivating beat. Painstakingly traced out, the rhythmic, elegant lines reveal a twofold reading. Six instruments subtly emerge in the negative spaces, matching the curves of the wavy dancers. “I have always loved hiding things in my drawings, the artist explains. With the dancers, I went with that slightly crazy energy that was going every which way! But I also wanted to bring a more traditional jazz touch with the instruments.”

Yvette Atienza
22.06 in Singapore

Yvette Atienza is widely recognized as one of the pioneers of jazz and latin jazz vocals in Singapore, and one of the top jazz singers in Asia. Way back to 1989, she has been one of the most hard core jazz vocalists in the Singapore jazz scene, spearheading an intense dedication and commitment to helping to grow and develop the jazz movement there. Born to a Spanish father and Filipino concert pianist mother, her vibrant, rhythmic and strongly improvisational style clearly reflects her Latin blood and piano training from her mother from the time she was only three years old! A multi-genre performer in jazz, R&B, pop, musical theatre and opera, her biggest love is jazz though.
