I love that I have tried this place but I had enough after 15 minutes but felt obligated to stay for another 90 minutes. The history is interesting, the local charming and an overall fun experience...but it's also hot in there, no drinks served other then the sticky sweet glass of house wine when entering and the benches a bit...

The first time I heard about the singing cabaret was during one of the walking tours, and I was immediately fascinated by the whole idea. So I reserved ticket online ( I was told that they get booked and get sold out), however this was not the case. Anticipating a huge crowd on a week night in December, I got... More

Too often it seems that iconic institutions are a big disappointment because they are resting on their laurels, but that is NOT the case here! An incredible evening of entertainment in 150+ year old venue! Any of it's famous former habitués would still enjoy the ambiance and intellectual "vibe" found here. Intimate space with no stage puts the performers in... More

listenning to french shansons . a group of singers. a nice glass of wine and you dont want the evening to end. the only problem r the small chairs that break your back. but the place is kept unattached as it was a 100 years ago, so to get the atmosphere, yo have to sucrify yr convenience.

One of the red letter highlights of our Paris trip. For 2-3 hours, it felt like we had been transported to a bygone era of cozy cabarets. Even if you are sandwiched between fellow tourists on a wooden bench, and the occasional tour group might file in, it still feels like a singular experience. The performers gather at a nearby...

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

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
