Music We Like

For Body and Soul
by Natalia

Java Jazz Café in New Westminster is the place where you can feed both body and soul.

You can easily find this small cozy restaurant close to the corner of 6th Street and 4th Avenue from the view of the grand piano, shining through the window. This place, run by a talented musical family, is mostly famous for the high quality live night music. Food and service are pretty good too, considering the reasonable prices.

It seems that the café interior with a majestic piano, cozy sofas and soft lights was specially designed for the enjoyment of soft classic jazz tunes. Every night (except Mondays) you can listen to different musicians and feed your soul with different, but always tasteful “food.” The best musical food on the menu is Ed, the owner of Java Jazz and a talented jazz pianist. Yes, I am not mistaken about the menu; you can ask for both of them at the Java Jazz: for food and for music.

To vary the music on the menu, the owners attract musicians who can demonstrate their talents during Saturday afternoon (from 4 till 6 p.m.) jam sessions, which are impromptu gatherings of musicians who play together. You will definitely enjoy this creative atmosphere with a cup of good coffee.

If you are a classic jazz lover or simply a good music lover, then you should check out this unique place in New Westminster—Java Jazz Café, where you can feed your body and soul (paying only once for both). As for me, I consider it is the best place to spend a couple of happy hours with friends.
