The Orbit Jazz Club and Bistro

Enjoy live jazz music at The Orbit Jazz Club and Bistro located in the popular nightlife suburb of Braamfontein. The Orbit Jazz Club originated from a jazz social club first founded in the suburb of Troyeville in the early 2000s by Aymeric Péguillan and partners. Originally called Peg’s Cosy Corner, the venue offered an intimate environment where musicians and jazz aficionados would meet to listen to live music and recordings.

In 2012, Péguillan, Dan Sermand and Kevin Naidoo, all avid jazz lovers opened The Orbit Jazz Club and Bistro. The club occupies two floors of a Braamfontein building and is a platform for creative expression for jazz musicians in Johannesburg. With performances on most nights this is a space for live music performances and jazz collaborations.
