Story: Sunset Sunside Jazz Club

Don’t let the outside fool you, Sunset Sunside obtained its name for a particular purpose. Inside there are two floors, on the ground floor, you’ll find Sunside devoted to acoustic jazz while Sunset, located underground in a cozy cave, is dedicated to electric jazz, electro-jazz, and world music. Both places can each fit up to 100 people and this is still not enough due to the amounts Parisians and tourists that know about this club's famous reputation. 


The club has welcomed many acclaimed jazz musicians on stage such as Brad Meldhau, Avishai Cohen, Didier Lockwood, Martial Solal, Aldo Romano, and many more. From the blues to electro jazz, Sunset Sunside has a little bit of everything for all tastes. Opened in 1983, this jazz club has not lost its touch.


Endroit confortable
Superb concert, everything was well organised in this small but comfortable venue; close to the metro and other nightlife venues, good air-conditioning.
Just Perfect
Perfect sound, amazing acoustics: remarkable! Served quickly, no queue of more than 2 minutes at the entrance.
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!
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.
Very Nice!
If you're on a hunt for a nice jazz bar, you found it!
