Get through the hump day heat with some cool tunes at Venue 505. Every week, the Surry Hills venue hosts Blue Wednesday Jazz Lounge, an evening devoted to jazz and blues classics. Once the lights are down low and a cocktail is in your grasp, the office will dissolve into nothing but a hazy memory. On stage, you'll find the Venue 505 house trio: guitarist Carl Dewhurst, bassist Cameron Undy and drummer Tim Firth. But, this is a jazz gig, so you can usually count on surprise guests.

The straight-forward food menu offers pasta, pizza, Greek salad, a cheese board or a mezzo plate. Drinks-wise, there's a good selection of wines, craft beers, top-shelf spirits and cocktails.

Reservations aren't possible so get there as early as you can to nab a comfy couch – either right up front or in a shadowy corner. Doors open at 6pm and the music starts at 8.30pm.
