One of the main musical attractions of Copenhagen is Jazzhus Montmartre. Jazzhus Montmartre is Copenhagen’s historic jazz hotspot, presenting world class live jazz at the original venue at Store Regnegade 19A (Great Rain Street) in the heart of the Danish capital.

From 1959-1976, the club made jazz history as the European home for jazz giants Dexter Gordon, Ben Webster, Stan Getz, Kenny Drew and many other masters of the 60’s and 70’s.

In 1976 the club moved to a new location (Nørregade) and eventually closed in 1995 after having been writing jazz history as Europe’s cutting edge jazz club and a playground for American and Scandinavian jazz.

In May 2010, the spectacular re-opening of Jazzhus Montmartre made news around the globe. Once again the world’s top jazz artists are flocking to the famous address at Store Regnegade 19A.

Through a heroic effort by Rune Bech, a respected Danish Internet entrepreneur, Jazzhouse Montmartre was ressurrected like Phoenix from the ashes.

My law firm Bender von Haller Dragsted is an early sponsor of the new Jazzhus Montmartre.
