First opened in 1976, at a time when the jazz scene in South Korea was practically non-existent, the All That Jazz club in Seoul quickly became a famed beacon for aficionados. As of late, the venue relocated to a new location within the city’s Yongsan neighbourhood with the intention to create new hallowed grounds. Situated on the second floor of a low-rise modern building alongside bustling Itaewon-ro, the All That Jazz club measures approx. 275 sqm. (2,960 sq.ft.) and features an interior design by Seoul-based interior design studio mttb. The entrance, a somewhat inconspicuous red door, conceals a splendorous interior design with an intimate vibe. Upon entering, visitors enter a corridor, captured by curved glass and lit by sensual red light, before the heart of the venue unfolds, creating a rhythmic spatial experience before any on-stage gig has even started.

Retaining a hint of the old location’s premises, that red hue can be found all over here as well. Although functionality lies very much at the centre of the design concept, it sees evocative tweaks which allude to the art of musical performance and creativity. The stage is surrounded by a layered yet clearly designated configuration, including a DJ booth to control the sound, a bar area. Additionally, the sofa booth area is situated directly across the stage. Both the stage and the venue’s outer walls are covered in red curtains, creating not only an intimate yet elegant atmosphere, but also reinforcing the former location’s visual legacy. The latter is further boosted by photographs of the musicians on the ceiling and the wine glass rack. Thanks to the new location, All That Jazz has become more than just a jazz bar, offering its fanbase a more elevated musical experience.
