Itaewon's All that JazzMonday, July 27, 2009
All that Jazz in Itaewon is a bit of a legend in Korea. In the beginning there were two major Jazz clubs in Seoul. There was Once in a Blue Moon in Apgujeong and All that Jazz. Once in a Blue Moon had very rustic roots, but it's popularity and appearance in many dramas, movies, and other media appearances spurred on it's transformation to become a very upscale Jazz spot. Being expensive doesn't mean that the Jazz acts are all that great. In my opinion, I prefer Club Evans in Hongdae to Once in a Blue Moon. Club Evans gets great bands and the space has a kinetic flow that is electric blue.
Now All that Jazz has a humble family feel to the place and it seems to have quite a few regulars. The music is down home as well and the acts aren't pretentious or amatuerish. They're laid back; they're just jazz.
