Soup Plus
Excellent Jazz venue,

383 George Street,

(02) 9299 7728

More pubs in City North >>

Soup Plus is most definitely open. It is the same as always, live Jazz six nights a week, George is in the kitchen, and the soup is still on the boil. Monday night is big band night, with montly residencies for Sydneys great big bands, including Don Barnetts Big Band and Brad Childs Big Band. For the rest of the week there is a great selection of Sydneys hotest talent, including the back bone of the Sydney scene, and the new up and coming musicians.

Its brilliant news to hear that Soup Plus is back in business. I was one of only thousands I'm sure that was shocked to when this Sydney icon was forced to close. I'm now in my fifties and started going to Soup plus when I was young Uni student and I'm still a regular even though I live 'up the Coast' in Newcastle. This place has been for more than 30years an integral part of my life. In Japanese parlance, it is a 'living item of cultural heritage'. May it live forever.

The Soup is the Best Eva, they are always up for giving young kids a go. Don't worry if your not 18 cause you are allowed into the joint. If your an up and comming muso bring down your horn and have a jam with some of sydneys greatest jazz musos and maybe Jill will give you a gig there. It happened to me.

I love Soup, its just the most awesome jazz hole in the world. I love the smell of the place, its like an old attic or the space under my house. I hope it never changes.

Well get in quickly kids, the rent's doubled in the last few years and Mr Votrubek can't afford to keep losing money. He's closing the doors on December 14th, 2002...

This is one of my all time favorites. I had my 18th birthday here a few years ago, and it was great! the music is all class, service is friendly, and the atmosphere is very chilled out. the only downside to the soup is that it gets very hot. I stepped outside for 5 mins to cool down and missed my birthday song!

I found it by mistake in 1992, while I lived in Oz. Staff was very friendly and they even had a Finlandia vodka.. Music was excellent and I just loved it. Thanks

Soup plus was the best night club in the world i loved the jazz and the friendly people. This club should stick around for others to enjoy

Lachlan Hamilton from Glenorie
Bloody fantastic venue. Especially for someone like me who's under 18 and can't get into most other jazz clubs. You can always be assured a great night whenever you go! Inexpensive food makes it all better, and it's delicious!

Jeff from Sydney

This is one that needs to be preserved for the future. I want my kids to go here, so it has to be around for at least another 20 years, OK?
