Date: September 1

After several months of careful planning, feedback & experimentation, The Rex is proud to present our official relaunch as Canada’s Premier Jazz Venue!


We are always looking for better ways to serve our neighborhood, and have done everything we can to accommodate old & new realities. The following changes have been implemented for the benefit, enjoyment and protection of our customers, musicians & staff:

  • Completely rebuilt stage & sound system, 
  • Improved seating arrangement & orientation
  • Tiered cover charges based on seating sections
  • Continued enforcement of strict COVID procedures & protocols
  • Adjusted daily performance times (5:30pm & 8:00pm)

The biggest non-visual change is the switch to making all of our shows ticketed events. 

We believe we’ve addressed our clientele’s #1 demand and can now offer PRE-SALE tickets for ALL our featured concert series shows in price-tiered seating format.

This way you can (finally) be certain of your seat/section before you even leave your house! Also, by making our showtimes a bit earlier, we can respect changing audience sensibilities & schedules. We will be presenting the very best in live Canadian Jazz, the Rex’s weekly Juno/Factor Artist Appreciation concert series: every Wednesday-Saturday through March 2022.

Pre-sale tickets will guarantee you seats in a section of your choice for the duration of the show. (Arrival no sooner than 30 min prior to performance time). Pre-sale tickets are limited, but tickets also available for walk-in at the door (first-come, first-served).

All tickets are available for purchase on our merch website THEREXSHOP.CA


If you miss the joys of live music or are looking for a new way to enjoy time with friends, we look forward to you joining us and enjoying the old & improved Rex Hotel Jazz & Blues Bar!
