Thelonious Jazz Club Keeps it Real

cimg0753.jpgThelonious Jazz Club is written up in all the Argentina guide books, but given its Jazz moniker, I always thought it was like the older tourists’ place to kick up their heels with a whiskey soda or something like that. Not so – I went there for the first time, for a book signing, and the scene at 7pm at Thelonious would have made Mr. Monk himself proud of Buenos Aires.

The book, Hip Hop Mas de Calle is by Argentine author Gustavo Alvarez Nuñez and covers his perspective of the global force of hip hop. The party was a hip hop tribute with deejays and fans. There was even a group of young breakdancers – two of them adorable females showing midriffs and rocking windmills. The club was the perfect setting for the jazz of the millenium with beats and boogie.

She's rockin' it! Adorable breakdancers

cimg0755.jpg There were plenty of people at the Thelonious Jazz Club who were there for the party – checking out the book, greeting friends – but there was obviously a built-in crowd as well. The crowd was young, hip, and had a great vibe – una bueno onda. After eyeing the stunning cocktails I regretted my red wine and promised myself a return trip to the Jazz club for twenty somethings.
