Head to Canary Wharf for a Jazz full evening
This summer, loose yourself in the electric variety of live music at Boisdale of Canary Wharf
As one of Canary Wharf's most diverse venues, Boisdale of Canary Wharf spans a whisky bar, cigar library, buzzing traditional Scottish restaurant, caviar and oyster bar and cigar terrace. This August, they are preparing an exuberant line-up of soul, blues and re-imagining of music heroes, and don't forget that they are locally and nationwide known for its live music.
Every Thursday you can loose yourself in " Lizzie Deane's Soul Spectacular' show and top-up a glass of any of Boisdale of Canary Wharf's exuberance of 1000 Scottish single malts, Indian, Japanese, Irish and Welsh whisky.
Start August on a high with " Summertime Blues : The Best of the Blue Brothers' from 1 - 10 August. Prepare to be blown away by The Bogus Blues Brothers - the best Blues Brothers tribute artists in the business.
As they play out the classics in front of their sizzling backing band, enjoy some of the liveliest summer nights the city has to offer.
The week later, on 17 August be amazed by swing king lain Mackenzie & Swing City. Backed by an eight-piece band performing iconic songs from the likes of Nat King Cole, Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra and Mel Tormé - lain Mackenzie channels the golden era's charm with a contemporary edge.
As we enter September, Boisdale of Canary Wharf's line-up is still going strong with a celebration of the female voice. The " Viva La Divas Festival" is a series of soulful nights that salute some of the greatest singers in jazz history with evenings dedicated to Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Billie Holiday.
