El Rocco

El Rocco is the oldest jazz cellar in Australia and boasts a history that stretches back over 50 years making it a legend in its own right.

Back in the 1950s El Rocco established its place in music folklore and played a significant part in creating some of the music industrys most treasured and respected artists.

Both Frank Sinatra and Sarah Vaughan graced the small stage to the delight of onlookers, a line up that would have made even The Cavern Clubs mouth water. Liverpools Cavern Club also initially opened its doors as a jazz club in the 1950s before gradually being infiltrated by other styles of music. Similarly El Rocco is no longer just Sydneys heart of jazz, it has now on re-opening become host to a diverse array of live entertainment 7 nights a week.

El Rocco is enchantingly intimate and alluringly atmospheric, a charm that is continually illusive to modern venues lost in a wilderness of renovations. The walls echo with the sound of days gone by, the cellar is quite simply alive with history. The close proximity of the audience to the stage creates the illusion of the performers energy and passion becoming the listeners oxygen. El Rocco offers artists a back drop of ambiance that will enhance every moment of a performance.

Whether you come to see a consummate performer or just a raw shy musician, El Rocco offers you the chance to experience something you have never done before; a chance to see performers as youve never seen them before, very up close and very personal. The intimacy with the audience will give you an insight into an artist and their music; the story behind the lyrics perhaps or just simply their passion for their craft stripped bare in front of your eyes.

Our love of music is infectious and we hope to re-establish the El Rocco Jazz Cellars position in todays music folklore, a venue where both performer and audience can say they too were part of a legend.

Be part of something special, something intimate and exclusive, something that will take you back to a time when the music alone was enough. So why not come along, enlighten all your senses and experience a little bit of forgotten magic down a side street in the Cross.

Come see the jazz, cabaret, singer-songwriters, open mic nights and other performances from established and emerging musicians and performers. El Roccos bar offers a range of beers and wines including $5 house beers and $6 house wines.

Meals are available during open hours including pasta, soup and mezze plates. Food can also be ordered from Swasdee Thai next door. Truth and freedom are always on the menu.
