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 Cafés, 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.

Aya Sekine & The Jazz Party

Aya Sekine is a Japanese Jazz pianist who has been actively performing worldwide over the past 2 decades. As a performer, she is best known for her soulful and dynamic style of swinging Jazz and improvisations that is heavily influenced by the Bebop and straight-ahead era in the history, but her true uniqueness comes from the versatility to move across different genres of music, and her wide spectrum of collaborations with artists in Singapore and around the world.
Her recent work includes her own trio project “The Jazz Party” featuring the sought after young jazz practitioners Ben Poh (bass) and Ting Wei Yap (drums) at The Esplanade’s Jazz In July program, an audio-visual-movement performance with multi-disciplinary artist AnGie Seah at ArtScience Museum, and a commissioned composition project Pin品 for The Pipa Quartet at SOTA Concert Hall.

She also expands her collaborations to her homeland Japan, where she tours twice a year to improvise with as many artists as she can, at as many venues as possible to expand her capacity of artistic expressions.
