The place to be for jazz lovers!
Top-notch concert. The place is small, but you don't really notice it much. That's the charm of these little places!
Nes
Quintessential Parisian Jazz Club
Jazz is alive and well in Paris and this spot is a great place to hear both professionals and novices, as we did during a jam session. Although I shouldn't say novices based on their talent. This is a must visit spot for jazz lovers.
