Jazz Roast will be a weekly event from 12-4pm featuring the best of funky jazz, multiculturalism, contemporary and big band sounds. Every Sunday, Magistorium will also serve you a menu of modern Irish cuisine that will be a fusion of both brunch and roast menus.
Sunday the 6th of November will see the very first Jazz Roast take place with a performance of ‘The Whistling Girl’ by acclaimed Irish jazz singer Honor Heffernan and composer Trevor Knight. The Irish duo will proudly present their new Cabaret/Speakeasy-style show featuring musical settings of the poetry of the great American wit, civil rights activist and author Dorothy Parker.
Expect to encounter a darkly sardonic and theatrical atmosphere in which Parker’s droll and sometimes heart-rending lyrics are transported into the 21st century by way of a soundtrack of ‘dirty’-cabaret, electronic-vaudeville, rock and jazz, as Heffernan channels the spirit of Parker during her years of notoriety in New York.
The Jazz Roast menu offers a variety of options, from the simplicity of poached eggs on sourdough bread with pulled ham hock, nut brown hollandaise and roasted tomatoes, to the heartiness of a Sunday roast chicken or beef rump served with either honey roasted roots and roast potatoes cooked in beef dripping or alternatively severed on Magistorium’s ancient grain sourdough bread with Guinness mustard mayo. And of course, the stalwart, aptly named ‘Dublin’s Breakfast’ which will serve you free range eggs, dry cured rashers, chive sausage, black and white pudding roll, homemade baked beans served with shredded ham hock and potato farl.
Guests have the opportunity to get the full Jazz Roast experience ‘show for only €35 which will allow guests the choice of a main, a dessert and the show. Or just €18 for the show only.
