This place is absolutley adorable, and even though all the singing and conversations are in French, its still worth a visit to soak in the experience. And everyone is so charming that soon you will be enticed to sing along snatches fom the Chorus with the whole room! Must try, and dont feel compelled to sit for the whole 4... More

Definitely worth while if you're into something a little bit different. Lots cheaper than the Moulin Rouge and much more authentic. Just a tip - if you book online, don't let them scam you into paying a second time, by claiming it was only a reservation and you need to pay them! Luckily the booking company refunded us. I think...

In the summer, Pablo Picasso could often be seen at the Lapin with friends sitting under the shadow of a large acacia tree. If you want to taste the bohemian Montmartre, this is the address

Visited Lapin Agile last Saturday and was literally like travelling back in time. It literally didn't matter that we didn't speak a word of French. The staff and locals were so friendly to us and we still swayed and hum along in broken French to the songs. Read about the history of the place before hand, Charlie Chaplin and Picasso... More

We just popped in one night, and even with no reservations they fit us in. Lovely evening of music and singing.

Our first visit to paris and we thought it would be fun to try something really French. I am sure this was a good event but wasted on us as we did not speak French. Very long show. Waiting to go in we was the best as the entrance is almost to the top of the hill in the Montmartre.... More

There was a nice atmosphere inside, with the old songs and the singers. Most of the songs are from the 50's and 60's of the 20th century great chansonniers. I knew maybe 5 or 6 songs and didn't feel belog there. I guess it is a good place for people around the age of 60 which have nostalgy memories and... More

A must-see in Paris: getting inside, you will be teleported back in time, to the "belle-epoque" age. If you're a student, it is not so expensive and you will get a free little cherry-flavoured drink. The cabaret is awesome, young and aged artists sing both original and most-famous pieces, from Edith Piaf to Charles Aznavour, and, if you can understand... More

A great way to spend an evening in Paris. Good singers. Great pianist. Warm, engaging performers. But be warned: It is hard to follow the songs if you don't know French. The performance really IS 4 hours long and there are no breaks for the audience! And the seats are not that comfortable. But go! It is a unique, fun... More

Go. It's an interesting night out. It's hot in there, though, so wear layers, bring water, and you may want to snuggle a snack in your purse. The drinks are a bit pricey, I think. Well worth it for the experience alone, but I wish I had been more prepared.
