About Ball & Chain

Ball & Chain is a historic and world famous live music venue located at 1513 Southwest 8th Street, Miami, FL 33135 in the center of Little Havana. The retro jazz bar on Calle Ocho was reopened in September 2014 as a live music venue with an authentic Cuban flare and meticulously redecorated in iconic 1950s Miami style by new ownership Ben Bush, Zack Bush and Bill Fuller. Before the area became a harbor for Cuban refugees, the bar “On the Trail” (Tamiami Trail) from the mid-1930s to late 1950s was a popular late-night stomping ground for many of the world’s most famous jazz musicians including Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Count Basie, and Chet Baker. The revived entertainment venue has reclaimed its reputation as a power player in Miami’s nightlife scene with a 3,000 square-foot interior and a 3,500 square-foot patio both outfitted for live music. The music scene at Ball & Chain infuses contemporary sounds with old school jazz and salsa. The venue features live music daily. The iconic bar features a full top shelf and premium liquor bar, signature specialty craft cocktails as well as a Cuban inspired tapas menu. Ball & Chain is open from 12PM to 12AM from Monday through Wednesday, 12PM to 3AM Thursday, Friday, Saturday and 2PM to 10PM on Sunday’s. Happy Hour is Monday through Sunday starting at 4PM to 7PM featuring two for one specialty cocktails daily.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
