Just go. Part of the charm for you might be that you've never been there, and if you don't expect a whole lot, maybe you'll be bowled over. Maybe you read all the five-star reviews, and you ruin it for yourself with high expectations. But honestly our second night was better than our first. And we loved our first. But... More

No, the audience, dancing, swining, dressed up for the occasion where attractive as well. We've vistided a preformance of the ensemble "Mega Swing" a Quartet+ Basse, Drums, Piano and Saxophone (tenor)+ saxophone (tenor), occasionally a trombone and conga's (percussion). They've played nice early mainstream-jazz-standards such as Perdido, In a mellow tone, fly me to the moon, blue skies but also... More

Great jazz with the perfect atmosphere! This is just how you imagine a Jazz Club in Paris should be, a small bar upstairs and a stone cellar below with the band and a load of jazz fans dancing and having a great time - Brilliant!

My wife and I went here for new years, 25 Euro cover per person and drinks ~15 Euros. It took us 20 mins just to check our jacket. The lower area was so over crowded that we couldn't get more than a foot or two inside to see the band. It could have been a great time if it wasn't... More

The music is dated,but nicely performed---very crowded--the stairs down to the performance area are narrow and steep--and only one way in and out---one has to go up the stairs to purchase a drink and then balance the drink as one makes their wAy down to the main part of the club

This place is simply fantastic. I would recommend arriving early (it opens at 9.30 and when we got there at 9.25 there was already a queue) as it fills up fast and you want decent seats so that you can watch the dancing and hear the music properly. The music started at 10 and the band was amazing. They played... More
