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.

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!
