The Jazz and Blues Club Ungelt is located in the 1000 year old Romanesque vault. The Ungelt courtyard was founded in the 11th century. Its name is derived from the very purpose of the building - every foreign merchant coming to Prague had to pay a fee to the royal treasury, i. e. ungelt. The court was also called the "Hilarious Court" by the locals for merchants used to hold noisy parties here. The court is right behind the Týn Church breathing the captivating atmosphere of Prague Old Town.
The club features top Prague jazz concerts, focusing mainly on jazz, blues, funk and fusion. Top Czech and foreign jazz bands with excellent soloists are on the program every night. You can stay until 1 am enjoying the illuminated Týn Church and the Clock Tower on Old Town Square on your way back. There is a good a la carte restaurant in the club and you can enjoy your meal directly in the music room, all the time during the production.
This show was a perfect way to cap off my visit in Prague. I truly enjoy good 'blues' music and find it more difficult these days to actually encounter local talent that is not only very talented, but is also an ambassador for the foundation of the blues. The group, and the club also made us feel at home and thus both served as positive hosts to help make our visit a wonderful experience.
