The Jam House is a great late night club and live music venue owned by Jools Holland, which regularly plays host to some absolutely superb jazz and blues bands. The decor within The Jam House is splendid, giving a sense of refined style that brings to mind the American deep South, which is in keeping with the overall musical policy. The bar is well stocked with a huge variety of spirits, and while it's certainly not the cheapest night out in town, the staff are very friendly and skilled at mixing drinks. The drink prices are pretty expensive, and it is definately not somewhere to visit if you are on a budget. The overall atmosphere is vibrant and at any given point during the night the dancefloor will be heaving with revellers. However it is advisable to get there very early and maintain your place on the dance floor, as it can get very busy and almost impossible to move around without knocking your drink over somebody. The majority of the people in the Jam House are over 25 and id say ranging into their mid 50's, and this is catered for depending on the band performing as they sing a variety of different songs from all decades. My one criticism of the place is that perhaps the upstairs bar area could have a section allowing people to stand around relaxing and enjoying conversation, as this is rather hard to do at the moment without being swept up into the busy dancefloor. Perhaps this is intentional, but all the same it would be nice to have the option to enjoy watching other people dance, without having them step all over your shoes. Also the bouncers and security who act like they are FBI - they were a very noticeable presence strutting around making their presence known.
