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.

Rootstudy
25.01 in Geneva

In the 60'-70 ', the United States was a huge source of inspiration for Jamaican music.
Many artists have renewed songs of soul music, finding the most beautiful songs to add the colorful vibe of the island.
Today, Rootstudy wishes to pay homage to this tasty mix that has given rocksteady.
That not only the feet, but also the hearts are jiggling. Here is the effect that a touch of soul in a reggae groove desires to provoke. All members of this Geneva reggae band have come together with one goal: to live and revive rocksteady. Gathered around the dazzling and energetic singer Nohémi, 7 musicians are struggling to groove roots sound by highlighting the soulful voice of "Nono" with background in a brass section.

Next concert

Erkalium
07.02 in Lausanne

Composed of two keyboardists, Marino Palma and Allan Broomfield, and a drummer, Noé Benita, this Franco-Swiss trio sets off on the Swiss and French music scene to create sounds that make the traditional musical boundaries waver between electronics. and acoustics. By combining the acoustic played and sampled sounds to the rippled and repeated waves of the synthesizer, the group experiences a hybrid and cloud harmony energized by the pulsating pulses of a nerve battery. Through these first compositions, the members of Erkalium develop a meditative aesthetic that explores the sound of the dream. It's all about fusing a universe with influences ranging from Detroit's minimal techno (Robert Hood), electro-jazz, ambient and experimental (ADMX-71) to House/funk from the 80s., and of course so much else.
