The Cooler Jazz Jam

The Cooler is a new rehearsal and development space and micro-venue for jazz and improvised music in Dublin, run by Improvised Music Company. It’s a space to develop your music, to meet other musicians, participate in workshops, and highlight the amazing things that Ireland’s improvising musicians are doing.

We're opening the space to the folks in the scene this August bank holiday, with a Cooler Clinic offering industry advice and career guidance during the day, and coming together for a drink and a jam session in the evening!

The Cooler Jazz Jam will kick off at 7:30pm, and doors will be open from 7pm to have a drink, meet new folks or old friends, or experiment with talking about your music to some new people! Anyone is welcome to join the Cooler house band to riff on favourite standards and have a play with the new space. Backline is provided, just bring yourself and your instrument! The House Trio are: Dominic Mullan (drums), So-Young Yoon (piano), Derek Whyte (double bass).


The Cooler is accessed from the Mary's Abbey entrance to The Complex - just off the LUAS tracks.


The performance space is up two flights of stairs and may be difficult to access for patrons with mobility issues. The space is fully seated. Gender-neutral toilet facilities are available upstairs (a few steps up from the level of The Cooler). Baby-changing facilities are available at The Gallery, downstairs at The Complex (using the Arran St entrance).

If you have any other queries regarding accessibility or require any accommodations for seating etc, please contact us at admin @ improvisedmusic . ie and we will do our best to assist you.
If you enjoyed the Jam and want to help keep it going please consider donating anything you can!
