Friday Night Jazz stanses fra 13.nov –  4.des som følge av COVID-19 og gjeldene retningslinjer i Oslo. Det er per i dag fortsatt mulig å sikre seg overnattingspakker og billetter for Friday Night Jazz 11.des – 18.des.



Vår intime klubb er inspirert av New Yorks jazzscene. Klubben har egen inngang og ligger i Amerikalinjens underetasje. Med scene, state of the art lys- og lydanlegg, kjøkken og mulighet for servering kan Gustav romme mange typer eventer og arrangementer.


Klubben har navn etter Gustav Henriksen, Amerikalinjens grunnlegger. I årene før åpningen av linjen møtte han massiv motstand, men Gustav visste at folk ville ut, og i 1913 la det første skipet fra kai. Hans innsats ble starten på et 60 år langt eventyr – for alle de tusenvis av menneskene som reiste, for Amerikalinjen og for Norge. La deg inspirere! Klubben dyrker Gustavs lekne, New York- og jazz-glade side.


Fredager arrangerer vi live jazz sessions med norske og utenlandske artister og lover en varm og pulserende atmosfære, velkommen!
