Jazz bar Bent J

Take a walk in the past

A charming piece of Danish cultural history

The Bent J pub opened in Aarhus in 1973, and although modest in floor area (only 57 sq m) it attracted some of the very best Danish and international jazz artists over the years.

35 years later, however, proprietor Bent J decided in 2008 to close down the jazz bar in accordance with his wish to hand over his life's work to 'Den Gamle By'.

Re-opened Bent J jazz bar

The jazz bar has now been re-opened, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to see Danish jazz history in Aarhus preserved and portrayed in this new attraction. At Bent J you can now see how people used to come to the jazz bar in the latter part of the 20th century to enjoy jazz music, in keeping with the wish of original proprietor Bent J. On special days there will be live jazz music and the bar will be open for business.
