Dante's Down The Hatch - A piece of Atlanta Jazz history with the John Robertson Trio

1,108 views 1 year ago
Dante's Down The Hatch was Atlanta's oldest jazz spot - an iconic location known around the world - until it was torn down in October 2013 to make room for another high rise apartment building.

The John Robertson Trio has been playing at Dante's since 1989 - and 6 nights a week in the Buckhead location since 2000. The only jazz band I've ever known to have had a nightly gig in the same place for 24 years.

Dante's Down the Hatch is a jazz club / fondue restaurant that opened in Underground Atlanta in 1969 - with a second location in Buckhead opening in 1981. The restaurant is designed as an early 20th century Mediterranean village (with elements of Americana) with an 18th century sailing ship docked in the middle of it, surrounded by a moat with live crocodiles . . . and, live jazz. Dante has offered live jazz 6 nights a week for 43 years.
