ENJOY SIMPLE GENEROUS SERVINGS OF MUSIC, MOOD, WINE & FOOD THAT’S HEARTY NOT HAUGHTY “Le QuecumBar is unique and provides an irresistible combination of live music, great food and hospitality in a setting as alluring as a coquette’s boudoir.… the interior evokes the faded elegance of pre-war Parisian café society and hosts performances by some of the world’s greatest acoustic guitarists” Live in London

Wednesday 21 December 2016 – My London – Evening Standard – Cressida Bonas says; What’s the most romantic thing someone’s done for you?

I love being taken to jazz bars and particularly a wonderful club in Battersea, called Le QuecumBar. I always have the perfect evening there — it’s intimate with live Gypsy swing music.

The Swinging Garcons!

The Swinging Garçons was formed late in 2010 out of a mutual love of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club, toast of the jazz world in the 1930s. Somehow, when they actually started playing together it all got mixed up in a jazz hot-pot, eventually including not only 30s swing, but 50s cool jazz, Argentinian tea-dance music… and what we loosely call ‘latin’… though not as the Romans knew it. The band plays a mixture of jazz standards with 3-part harmony arrangements, interspersed with hot club tunes!
