Our Mission

Live Jazz Preservation Downtown

     Roarin' Jazz Club is a Pop-up Jazz club that is open every Sunday from 5:30pm-9:00pm in the heart of downtown San Antonio at The Bonham Exchange! The goal of our club is to provide high quality jazz entertainment at an affordable price for both dancers and jazz lovers alike while preserving early jazz in the process. 

     The Bonham Exchange has always been an institution that is open to EVERYONE, this includes San Antonio's Jazz Scene. With out Lee Haines and the rest of his Bonham staff this club would not be possible. The upstairs ballroom is graciously donated for free and no cut of the door is taken by The Bonham. All cover charges collected at the door go straight to paying the band performing that night. 

     Tables are on a first come, first serve basis and there is no dress code to enter the club. Roarin' Jazz Club is more geared towards the music we provide and not necessarily wowing you with fancy frills. We have a full bar provided by The Bonham which includes spirits, beer, and wine. We do not server food, so be sure to eat at one the many San Antonio spots within walking distance before you join us!

     Due to the historical nature of the building we unfortunately do not have wheel chair access to the club, which is on the second floor of the building. Anyone 18 years of age and up are welcome to enter. People under 21 years of age will be marked at the door. Admission is $10. In partnership with The San Antonio Swing Dance Society, we offer 20% off to any swing dance organization member with a valid membership card.

We hope you join us soon and support live local jazz in San Antonio
