To say it upfront, we thoroughly enjoyed the evening, although we regretted having to leave around midnight, because we had a plane to catch the next morning. Au Lapin Agile delivered exactly what it says on the package: A delightful evening filled with French chansons! I liked the fact that the singers were not just standing on a stage in... More

Just a lot of fun ! Cabaret starts at 9:00 PM in a very small room (maybe 30 seats). Starts with piano and group songs by those who will perform. Rousing French singing ! Several solos after this. My favorite was a man with a cranked music box. Solo piano, guitar playing and singing. Others have complained that it was... More

We booked a table about a month before we got to Paris. On the day of the event, we were at the door about 6:30, the door was closed and sitting on the bench by the door was apparently a prospective customer waiting for the door to open. We then walked up to Sacré-Cœur for some sunset view. When we... More

A friend and I spent an evening here and had a ball. The atmosphere was friendly, the songs were very varied, from scurrilous folk to tear-jerking ballads with all stops in between, and included well-known numbers popularised by Piaf, Brel, Brassens or Aznavour as well as some that were the singers' own compositions. No amplification - just voices accompanied by... More

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
