If you haven’t ever visited the Base Sous-Marine you’re missing out on a jewel in Bordeaux’s history and a very interesting place to catch a concert or art exhibition.
This year is the 7th edition of Jazz at the Base, with three nights of ‘cool daddy-o, laid back’ jazz styles.
Quai du Jazz: Offers more of an intimate performance, with the focus being of a relaxed atmosphere for families that are perhaps new to the jazz scene. The performance starts at 7pm with food and drink being available.
L’espace Scène flottante: A specially designed floating stage has been created for the feature concert. The stage will house the musicians with an array of colorful background projections.
