A lively program of talented artists changes each evening, head out for a night of jazz music in the very heart of Paris!

As artists change the evening, the show might last longer than the time displayed on the programme. Feel free to grab a drink at the joints wide horseshoe-shaped bar, complete with a colorful menu of tropical cocktails and more!
An unbeatable hot spot for all jazz lovers from around the world. Both tourists and locals alike get a kick out of listening to the sensational international artists who perform on stage in Baiser. A dream come true for three Caribbean brothers, they decided to inaugurate the locale in the 1980s and since that day forth it has been the place to be when talking about the jitterbug and the blues. Everyday there is something new to hear, vocal, trumpets, piano, bass, drums and even fusion jazz. The club’s nice little bar downstairs is the perfect place to start off the night before watching the show, considering the bartender knows how to make a mean drink! When visiting the venue, we strongly suggest coming in early, the place can get quite crowded.
