This was a fun place to listen to live jazz. We got there just as they were opening up the seating downstairs in the 'caveau' or small cellar, that was at about 9:30 - 10:00 in January 2019. We chose seats, very tight quarters, around...More

Caveau is small, and getting there early doesn’t guarantee a seat. That withstanding, it is a great place to hang. The music is always top notch and different - they call it jazz, but it’s a fusion of soul meets blues meets Hendrix meets Jazz,...More

Firstly you need to be a blues/jazz fan, be patient and not suffer from claustrophobia. And understand that the drink prices make up for no cover charge. Things kick off about 10 downstairs. It is crowded but there is a turnover of customers so catch...More

Came hive to listen to jazz. We showed up around 10:30 - the downstairs was packed to the point that you couldn't see the band. We went into side room to listen and grab a beer which turned out to be 11 eur. Music was...More

I go here every trip to Paris. The venue down in the cave is always crowded, but the music's great. Unfortunately, the portable guillotine is gone.

A friend recommended this place for a night out of music and I wasn't disappointed. It looked a little dodgy from the outside looking in but don't let that stop you from stepping in and heading down a floor to enjoy the music! It was...More

Visited as a couple and this was a gem of a place. Cavern downstairs opened at 10 and we were treated to top class Jazz experience - crowded place but not uncomfortably so. Well worth a visit...

We visited twice during our long weekend, and both evenings were excellent. Saturday was fairly traditional jazz and Sunday was more rock/jam sessions. We've not had such late nights in a long time! Free entry and slightly above average price for (good quality) beer and...More

There are several really wonderful caveaux (caves or cellars) for live music in Paris and it makes a great Parisian style night out to visit these. I always visit my favourite, Autour de Midi, in Montmartre but this time also went to a great blues...More

Heard about this place so checked it out on a Friday night. A real dive bar vibe on the ground level but later on the back doors open up to reveal the live music cellar with a full bar. I think it is usually free...More
