The Jam House

The Jam House is located near the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, occupying an extraordinary historic Georgian building.

The Jam House was born in 1999, as a joint venture between Jools Holland and designer Neil Tibbatt. The pair shared the same idea of wanting a night out which combined live music, fine dining and good times.

On 23rd April 1999, the first ever Jam House venue opened in Birmingham. Opening the first night was – perhaps unsurprisingly – Jools Holland himself. The Jools Holland band created an immense atmosphere on the opening night, continuing to occasionally make appearances at the unique venue up to this day.

Three floors and open plan access to the entire venue ensures visitors do not miss any of the featured acts. The top floor is a popular choice for corporate events and social or business lunches, seating over eighty guests and serving fresh, international cuisine.

Overall, the atmosphere expected from such a venue is honest and very relaxed, favouring the intimacy of unplugged music.

In the past, live musicians specialising in jazz, rock and blues have visited the venue and played a set. Performances have included Chaka Khan, The Specials, Steve Gibbons, The Stylistics, Buddy Greco, Paul Carrick, The Beat, Pato Banton and, of course, Jools with his Rhythm ‘n’ Blues Orchestra.
