Live jazz, fine food & spirits

Coming Soon.

BLU Jazz+ is a stunning new performance space in downtown Akron, Ohio which has been designed & crafted from the ground up with the presentation of live jazz in mind.

Complete with an exciting "Black & BLU"-inspired menu, full-service bar, and state-of-the art stage, sound & lighting, BLU Jazz+ has the retro feel & intimacy of the famous NYC clubs combined with the style and sophistication of a modern venue.


Conveniently situated in the heart of the Akron Historic Arts District, BLU Jazz+ is Northeast Ohio’s new premier destination for live jazz, fine food & spirits.

Built in the 1870's and made of local sandstone & brick, the Hermes Building is home to BLU Jazz+ and gives our venue the distinct character and charm that a jazz club deserves.

Easily accessible via Route 8, I-77, & I-76 with on-street, garage, and valet parking services available.
