The Jazzlab's mantra is to dedicate itself to promoting and developing live jazz as an art form.
Located at the quintessential setting on the corner of a dead end lane way in the inner city Melbourne suburb of Brunswick, the Jazzlab was opened by Michael Tortoni on April 7 2017. Michael's dedication to the presentation of live music performance had lead him to direct and support Bennett's Lane Jazz Club since its inception until his departure in mid-2015. Michael now continues to direct that passion and commitment into his new jazz club, The Jazzlab.
The Jazzlab has surpassed all expectations, with 25 years’ experience, Michael was able to transport all the best features of Bennetts Lane to create the ultimate live concert club with excellent lines of sight for its 216 capacity.
The Jazzlab is host to the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, and is instrumental in presenting residencies for developing recording material, and curating educational programs for live recording studies.
Open seven nights a week, The Jazzlab is the best destination in Melbourne to hear top quality live jazz performances from the cutting edge and avant garde, to the classics and standards that made the art form great.
