This is a great cozy underground jazz bar with amazing house musicians. It's very laid back and a great atmosphere.

This is a hidden gem in the literal sense,to say the least, if you love Jazz and enjoy the sound of Brass you will leave this place complete with your fill of the horn. They will even let you leave your mark while your there tape a one dollar bill to the post with you or you and date name written right on top of it.

Jazzy, dark basement retreat. Beer, whiskey and a few wines but bring your own food if you're so inclined as there is no kitchen.

This is my favorite place in Austin. When you walk down into the basement bar on Congress, you feel transported to a jazz bar in New York City. Famous jazz artists drop in all the time, and local musicians pop in to do a few songs before letting another take their place. The vibe is dark and romantic, and the music will whisk you away. This is a great place to take a date after dinner, though know it's loud so you'll just be enjoying the tunes together. Music starts at 9pm every night, though they also have a band during happy hour. I suggest getting there early to get a seat up front!

We checked out a jazzy band playing. The venue is very small so get there early if you want a seat up front. You can bring your own food. They don't have a kitchen but plenty of drinks. There are a lot of interesting things written on the wall. Very intimate and fun setting.

Cool jazz music every night & happy hour from 4-8. It's an underground bar- literally in the basement & the vibe is as cool as the Jazz they play.

The Elephant Room is THE place for smooth and swanky jazz. The drinks are strong and delicious, and the red brick interior makes you feel like you’ve traveled back in time. Reverberating saxophones and improvisational pianists wow guests every weekend. If you get the chance, try to catch The Jitterbug Vipers. This legendary jazz group often perform at this jazz hot spot.

The Elephant Room is a jazz bar in the basement of the historic Swift building that is open 7 days a week. Many may pass this bar by as there is not a big sign besides the one on street level. As you walk down to the basement to get to the Elephant Room you are welcomed by amazing jazz music in a romantic setting with dimmed lighting. The main shows begin at 9:30 and Happy Hour Bands play during 6:00-8:00pm daily.315 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701

Great jazz every night at this relaxed and cozy underground bar. Check the program on their website if you are looking for a specific kind of jazz and come early if you want a good seat.

Elephant room is a jazz and blues lovers haven. This partially/mostly underground gem takes you back to a tome of feel good-rhythms, soul, and warmth.
