Get Your Dose of Live Music at The Quarter
Live at the Quarter is an elegant, charming venue for jazz, indie, and international music acts with the best acoustics in town.
What Is The Quarter?
The Quarter, nestled in the premises of Mumbai’s iconic Royal Opera House, has two distinct spaces - a live performance venue (an 80-seater, jazz-bar style area) called Live at the Quarter, and an all-day restaurant and bar with indoor and al fresco seating.
Set at the iconic Royal Opera House complex, The Quarter has evolved into a favourite spot for jazz lovers. With weekly events focusing on the genre, The Quarter programs up to five nights a week at the smaller jazz bar, also putting forth performances by local indie talent and global wizards like John McLaughlin and Tinariwen, who performed at one of the inaugural nights of The Quarter programming the grand Royal Opera House itself. All in all, if you love live music, this is fast becoming a hotspot to attend a gig.
Here's what the venues - The Quarter + Royal Opera House - look like!
Already, Live at The Quarter and The Royal Opera House have seen some stellar performances by cultural heavyweights like Grammy award-winning act Tinariwen, French jazz trumpeter Erik Truffaz, and EYM Trio. Indie stars from around the subcontinent have begun making it their preferred spot, like dreampop sensations Parekh & Singh, guitarist Warren Mendonsa with Blackstratblues, as well as Ankur and the Ghalat Family.
One fantastic aspect of the programming is - artists are encouraged to try out new or experimental content. Parekh & Singh, for instance, played with an orchestra at the Royal Opera House, and a stripped-down covers-only show at The Quarter. This 'dual programming' is something that fans can expect going forward.
