James Street Tavern

Located in east Oxford, The James Street Tavern (JST) hosts a number of free gigs and open nights, as well as taking part in events such as Oxjam, and hosting its own three day music festival.

Location and Transport

47B James Street

The JST is about 15 minutes walk from the town centre. James Street runs between Cowley Road and Iffley Road, and there are frequent buses along both roads. Ask for the James Street stop. The JST is closest to the Cowley Road end of James Street. Street parking is limited, and the closest Pay and Display parking is behind Tesco on Cowley Road.


The venue is all on one level and should be wheelchair accessible, but some of the routes through the pub might be a bit narrow, and there is no dedicated accessible toilet.

Open Mic Nights

The James St Tavern has an open-mic night every Friday from 8:30pm.
