Quality of Drinks
A good whisky selection, but basic back bar and really quite poor beer selection.
Basement jazz venue with neons and a natural stage near the stairs as you enter. The bar is tucked away in a side room.
A friendly crowd that clearly regularly haunt the place. You don’t need to be a musician or a jazz expert, although it wouldn’t hurt. Pretty atmospheric both pre, during and post performances.

Value For Money
A little higher than average
With Plovdiv already boasting one popular Jazz bar, it is relatively unusual to find two such venues close by in good health in a provincial city of this size This one is almost the flipside of the coin. While Kontrabas is up on a hill in the old town, sophisticated and middle aged, this is a basement bar in a city centre block with a younger crowd that perform and enjoy jazz with a bit more of a flourish, feeling alternative in comparison. Very friendly crowd and service.
