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.

OK for the first 20 minutes but the songs were very difficult to follow. The furniture was uncomfortable and it was extremely overpriced.

As above. I'd recommend the show for everybody speaking French, with at least basic knowledge about French history and culture. Knowing bohemian songs' lyrics wouldn't hurt!

If you like me is below the age of 55-60 years old (35), the chances of enjoyment in this establishment are somewhat slim. This is a place for french sing along songs in the cabaret style without actually being a cabaret per se. If you like the combination of karaoke, old french tunes, and like being seated on old wooden... More

Rustic sing-a-long, great atmosphere, very local feel. The performers all made you feel welcome in the small, intimate venue

Did not go inside but the outside and reading the history of this small cabaret (was known as Cabaret des Assassins) was worth the small side trip.
