Jazz Night


Cape Town, the South African ‘City of Jazz’, is home to many well-known jazzmen. In an intimate setting, we offer an opportunity to appreciate live music, in respect and mindfulness of the performance. Jazz Night at Alliance Française du Cap is a seated concert for which booking is highly encouraged as seating charts are planned based on reservations. 

Join us on the last Friday of the month!
