COVID Statement: While we are now seating at full capacity, we have reduced our seating from 80 to 60 to provide more space per patron for increased safety. Full covid vaccinations are required (honor system) and once again, masks are required unless sitting and actively eating/drinking until the Delta variation is under control. In addition, Jamey's has implemented mitigation measures that greatly exceed CDC guidelines to help keep you safe and worry free.

It is a joy to be open once again, and to see our guests back for the JHOM TLC treatment! As always, the kitchen is open for dinner from 6 to 9:30 for ticket holders, and separate reservations are not needed. Online ticket sales close at 5pm day of show, but are available for walk-ups at the door. Tickets are not required for bar seating.

Our full HD stereo pay-per-view option is the perfect alternate way to experience the whole show as it happens if you are unable to attend in person.

YOU SAID IT...

"BY FAR the best live music venue on the East Coast"

"...the coolest venue in the universe..."

"Best. Venue. Ever."

"We just bought a house in Lansdowne to be closer to Jamey's"

"Truly the very coolest venue for live music ANYWHERE"

The Lightyears: "Jamey’s House of Music is in our top 3 all time venues to play along side The 02 Arena & Marquee Club, London"

"We can't wait until you have your venue up and running again!! It's recognized as one of the top small venues in the region, if not in the entire country!!"
- Black Oak Artists

"Home. It's doesn't get any warmer than being in Jamey's House!"

"We've played every kind of venue imaginable on several world tours, and I have to tell you that this is probably the best venue we have ever played. It's simply brilliant. Thank you for everything done to perfection."

"What an amazing room! A friend asked me today what I thought of the room and without hesitation I said it was in the top five I’ve ever done. It was more than just the great sound, stage and set up. It was clear to me that there was such respect for the musician from the moment I walked in."

"Jamey Reilly couldn't possibly have created a finer oasis for musicians to perform. It's really a gem. SERIOUSLY! Everybody try and get a date there!!! (Just leave some room for us because we're definitely going back!!!)"

"Amazing! A hidden, intimate live music venue with impeccable sound. Sat at long tables next to total strangers and it felt like being with family. Delicious food (and great craft beer the night I was there). It’s rare to find a venue owner who cares this passionately about the music! Two big thumbs up."

"Last night we debuted at Jamey Reilly’s Jamey’s House of Music. Jamey has outdone himself. He has an incredible backline, and the sound, which he engineers is exquisite. Working with Jamey helps make performing seamless. He knows what he is doing and is an excellent communicator. He is also a musician, which helps a great deal (the man has ears). The food at this venue is incredible. The flavor-I can’t begin to find the words to express how excellent it is. If you have not been to Jamey’s House of Music, get down there, catch a show. Get there early and enjoy the amazing cuisine. It will blow your mind."

"This small room is by far the best sounding music venue I've ever experienced. It's a truly exceptional labor of love..."

"Not enough room here to tell you how fabulous this venue is—music, people, food, on-tap beer, and staff are all top drawer! Prices are fantastic! The photos are shrimp over grits and a fabulous vegan burger with vegan bacon!"

"THE place to Jam!!! Jamey is the man, the myth, the legend. Great equipment & exceptional drum set."

"Jamey's is the BEST. People who never heard of the band will show up to listen, because they KNOW Jamey books the official bands, has the great food, great sound, great atmosphere...and now great craft beer. WORLD CLASS JOINT, yo!"

"I tell everyone about Jamey and Jamey's House of Music. Everyone in Nashville knows about this place. I play some of the best rooms in the world, like the Bluebird, Douglas Corner, Third and Lindsley, places with great sound systems, and nothing beats the sound in this room. ...This is my favorite place to play in the whole world."

"The sound is absolutely perfect. I could hear every note of every instrument. Just incredible."

"Great pro sound, fantastic food, great beer and an owner that is a super nice human!!!"

"Congratulations to the incredible Jamey Reilly for spending this (COVID shutdown) time improving facilities at the already fabulous Jamey's House of Music, the best music venue in the Philadelphia area."

I'm a "venue snob" and this place is AWESOME ! Cozy, intimate, acoustically A+, comfy seating, bathroom is spotless, people are warm & friendly ... can't wait to return !

"... a dream performance space. Perfect acoustics, top quality production values, a visually lovely setting, and an overall aesthetic ambience that, like a tea ceremony, lifts every gesture to it's highest level. It's perfection, both for the audience and the performers."

"Intimate music venue with great artists. Offers several craft beers on tap— a full bar bar with Pennsylvania spirits and cider is soon to come. The excellent food and friendly service are an added delight. Highly recommend Jamey’s for an enjoyable evening of music and dinner at a reasonable price. Also very gluten friendly."

"And a special thanks to Jamey Reilly for his hospitality and for providing what is surely one of the greatest listening rooms in the country!"

"Totally going again soon! A++++++!!!"

"I can't even explain how delicious everything was."

"One word. ..incredible!"

"Awesome food..."
