How Does it All Work?

posted Wednesday 30th November

Never been to Ronnie Scott’s before? Here is how it all works.

 ***This is information for Ronnie Scott’s Main Club rather than Ronnie’s Bar Upstairs***

We are a 220 seater jazz club, open 7 nights per week.

All of our acts in the club are ticketed. To enter you need to purchase your tickets in advance. Ticket prices are typically between £20-40 depending on where you sit. You do not need to be a member to purchase tickets for a show at Ronnie Scott’s.

Booking is easy either online OR over the phone 020 7439 0747 Option 1 OR by coming into the club between 11am-5pm Monday-Friday

Once you have made a booking, you will receive a confirmation email which will give you all the information you will need for the night including performance times. You do not need to print out your confirmation email and we do not issue physical tickets. Your name will be on our guest list on the night so you just need to say your name to the Maitre’ D at the door.

How Seating works:

There are 3 sections in the club. Your seats will be allocated upon arrival so the exact location of your seats will not be known until the night. You will be given the best seat within your section upon arrival.

1)       Priority – These are our best seats. They are located towards the centre of the room at tables and chairs. Unless you are on your own, you will not share your table with any other group or party.

2)       Standard – These are located on either side of the club at tiered bench tables that face the stage. These are very comfortable for dining if you choose. They have a good view of the stage and each bench table sits 3, 4 or 6 people. We will always sit your group as close together as possible. For example if you are a group of 4, you will all sit at one bench table. If you are a party of 7, we may sit you at one table of 4 and the other 3 at the closest adjacent table. There is a small chance that multiple groups will sit at one table.

3)       Slightly Restricted View – Are tiered bench tables (exact same as Standard Seating) located on the left hand side of the club facing the stage.  The ‘restriction’ on the view is a small pillar in the club that is near the stage.

How restricted is “Restricted View”? You will still see most of the stage and performers



Dining is optional in every section of the club. If you wish to dine, we will ask for an approximate dining time. Food is not included in your ticket price. You will have a waiter from which to order from our a la carte and pay for food + beverage on the night
