Why not wait 'till the end of the month for some quality Jazz to listen and dance to? It's not hard to do if you can experience The Nevada Street Four. (see below) Once again, we have persuaded another quartet of world class jazz musicians to make a date here at Opus One. It's not hard to do really, we have such a reputation amongst the swing maestros now, they're waiting for our call! Such Musicianship, such swing, and all for our dancing pleasure, we are pleased that these fine musicians so enjoy playing for us all.

We have a beginners Lindy Hop / swing class suitable for absolute beginners at 7.15. Every patron has the chance of winning a free entry next month, ask Anna on the front desk for details. Our Art Deco dancehall has been recently renovated with a new wood floor and air conditioning (unheard of in swing clubs in Britain). The high quality of the band and class reflect the entrance fee of £15 (or £12 unwaged) for the whole evening.

Bring your your good selves, wear something comfortable and flat-ish shoes. Some dancers love to dress up and some don't, so wear what you like. We provide endless glasses of water and liquorice allsorts.

You can come on your own or with friends. Opus One was voted the friendliest club in Britain 2017 and we're already on our way to win that coveted award in 2018.

More recently, Malcolm has been fronting his own group, The Nevada Street Four - a quartet specialising in music rooted in jazz of the 1920s and 30s. The group cultivates a distinctive sound, and is formed of four accomplished instrumentalists who extend their talents to include vocals in four-part harmony. The individual members of the group have worked widely in the UK and abroad with names as diverse as Nat Gonella, The Inkspots, Pasadena Roof Orchestra, John Dankworth, and Martha Reeves. In 2013,  all four musicians were featured on Bryan Ferry's album 'The Jazz Age' and on the soundtrack to Warner Bros ' Great Gatsby'. Coming together to share their collective experiences, Nevada Street Four generates a great sense of fun into their performances. The band has earned a reputation of delighting audiences with their high standard of musicianship and entertaining camaraderie.

- ☆☆☆☆☆ We (two Dutch ladies) were looking for somewhere good to dance in our two-day visit to London and we feel very lucky to have found Opus One. Such a warm welcome... and that floor! - Willemijn Witte.
