The Ellington Jazz Club

About The Ellington Jazz Club

The Ellington is now hosting its 6th year as a Fringe World Independent Venue. After winning the Fringe World award for Best Independent Venue in 2019, the 2020 program promises to be even more dazzling and jam-packed with eclectic and delightful shows from a variety of presenters. This year, we're hosting a whopping 96 shows!

With something to tempt every taste, you can truly immerse yourself in the vaudevillian spirit of Fringe World at The Ellington, all whilst enjoying our warm hospitality, delicious cocktails, and tasty finger food.


Located close to the main Fringe World hubs and adjacent to the CBD with free parking in the lot next door, The Ellington is the perfect venue to settle into for multiple Fringe World shows.

Attending a Show

Please note that all FRINGE WORLD shows will start promptly at the advertised time, so we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes in advance. FRINGE WORLD is a busy time, so you may be asked to queue outside the door whilst we clear up and reset from the previous show.

After your show has finished, please make room for our staff to set up for the next show - or get tickets for multiple shows, and settle in for the night!


Shows at The Ellington are accessible, and we have accessible toilets. Please contact us in advance at so we can make sure we have ample space for you.
