The location & the atmosphere is very nice. There are many great lonely dancers, who surely passed their 70s, 80s & probably they severed the Army in World War I :-) They pick up young beautiful teens to dance with; it is so nice… The Jazz band who came to play were much younger... from War World II at least....

Le Caveau was a time machine for me as memories of my Cavern days in Liverpool of the late 50s and early 60s flooded back (The Cavern was originally a jazz club). It was a wonderful experience and a really entertaining Brit Swing Band played the night I visited. The entrance fee was about 13 Euro, I think, and well... More

Nice feeling in this underground club which seems to be dedicated to traditional jazz. People of all ages meeting, dancing and having a good time in this place. 15 euro entrance fee and quite expensive beer, but you will have a good time, especially if you're looking for dancing! If you don't, you can just sit back, enjoying the show... More

We came to dance, not really knowing the history behind this place. As avid swing dancers, we found the club online and only knew that they had jazz music every night, so we showed up and stepped back in time! Cover charge is 13-15 euro/person depending on the night of the week. The dance floor is very small compared to... More

Visited as a group of 4 girls mid to late 20s, music as mentioned is more swing than jazz, we liked the band anyway so fine by us! Lots of professional looking dancers who were great to watch. If you are a lady you will probably be asked to dance- go for it! I was a bit shy and have... More

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!
