There’s not a better place to hear jazz and blues, with drummer Rony Afif’s lively quartet gigs every Friday attracting a healthy mix of musos, good-time dancers and quiet chatters. Unlike many pricey and pretentious jazz-hosting venues in the city, it’s all about the music and the good times here. Novotel World Trade Centre (04 332 0000).
