WHISPERS ON THE STREET;

Visited December 2015 – Trip advisor 5 star review “My sort of music, my sort of food, my sort of people” …This is our second visit here and our expectations from our first visit were surpassed. The choice of food from the menu was limited, but excellent and obviously very, very fresh! No microwave cookery here! Similarly, the choice of wines in each category was limited but the quality of all the wines (we have tried them all now!) is excellent. The food can be best described as authentic, rustic French cuisine. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and the service could not be improved upon. The musicians on both visits were people we hadn’t come across before but the standard of musicianship was very high and most enjoyable. In addition, the music has never been deafening on either occasion and one can chat comfortably above the music whilst enjoying one’s meal. … I thoroughly recommend this venue if Gypsy Swing coupled with authentic French cuisine is your thing.   Visited December 2015 – Trip advisor 5 star review “A pearl in the middle of the chaos!” Amazing place, such a warm and cozy pub in the heart of London, the gipsy music makes this place a pearl, superb to spend some nice time with friends! They have good wine and drinks too   Visited October 2015- Trip advisor 5 star review “Great ambiance, food and music” I had a fantastic Sunday evening concert, with champagne, escargots and prunes pork stew, all very nice. I definitely recommend   Reviewed 26 August 2015 – Trip adviser visitors from USA “Great Gypsy Jazz bar with good food too” We are fans of gypsy jazz and were told about this club by someone at a Django fest in New York City. This is a terrific little gypsy jazz club. We saw the “Hot Club Two”, a fine gypsy jazz duo, playing equal measures of Django standards plus general swing standards done in a lively Gypsy style. The place is charmingly decorated and laid out and we enjoyed our meal quite a bit, my wife got the steak and I got the aubergene parmesan; both were much better than you’d expect for a small jazz club. Recent party testimonial June 2015; We would like to thank the staff at QuecumBar and recommend them for an excellent event, our wedding party on the 13th June this year! The food was great, the service first class, nothing was too much trouble, everyone was impressed. The music both live and recorded sounded good, the live artist Ava Golding + Trio were fantastic, the garden looked really impressive lit up at night. A great venue for a party or reception, thanks again, Ian + Nadia Dennes.

Party testimonial April 2015;

“Le QuecumBar is a fabulous place to hold a party. The atmosphere was terrific with a truly convivial buzz.  Steve was incredibly helpful in the planning and he and his staff were superb on the night. The food was perfect and Radio Daze(the band) made the evening go with a swing.” Katherine

and another April 2015

Many thanks for a great bday bash! Just thought I would drop you a quick line to say thank you for the other night and making the effort with the evening. Everyone was and has been raving about what a great location it was, how good of an atmosphere and importantly to my tight arsed friends how well priced!  Hopefully you will be seeing a few of them there soon and no doubt I will be back soon with someone in tow. Seb

BBC2 – “Honourable Woman” Location Shoot

“The Honourable Woman television production for BBC2 used QuecumBar as a location for a days filming in 2013. The location worked well, especially as it provided an interesting space not found in other restaurants and bars. It is also useful as it is closed during the day in the week and easy to black out”.

Royal Academy of Dance Summer Party – Sarah-Jane Lewis Lead Events Officer  “.. Our staff loved the music and didn’t want it to end, …It really made our evening special ..we very much hope we can work with you again in the future.”

David Field, PRIMA Design Exhibition ” The Allstars touch all the nerve endings, stirring and feeding our emotions.  From firing the intense and elated feelings of happiness to evoking the warm tears from remembering lost love, the Allstars playing ‘Gypsy’ let you know you are alive.   The music hits you in way some poetry can but stays with you mainly because it inspires the heart. Divine stuff !“.

 

Pete Watson, Ealing Jazz Festival “One of the highlights of this years Ealing Jazz Festival

 

Kath Serkis, Organiser of Bastille Day Festival, Borough Market “ The Allstars really made our Bastille Day celebrations go with a swing! They provided just the right touch of authenticity with their bal musette and Gypsy Swing numbers, and their musicianship was incredible. “

  “Singers and Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again. Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life – the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. Why? Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire lives to a moment – to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul. Singers and Musicians are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.” – David Ackert, LA Times
