We had a great evening listening to jazz and watching people dance. We got there just as it opened and so managed to get seats facing the stage and dance floor. Music was wonderful and the setting of a cave added so much to the atmosphere and acoustics. It was the perfect amount of busy, with people dancing, watching, listening... More

We stumbled across this place by accident whilst staying in this area and had a fantastic evening. The following year we came back to Paris and made a point of visiting this club again. We were not disappointed. Yes it's small but that adds to the atmosphere. People grumble on here about paying to go in but it is live... More

We went here to experience the cave club themed night for a change. It was fairly expensive, around 14euro to get in and a double whiskey was around 16euros. Locals come here, and some really good dancers - way above our skill level so we watched for a bit, had a quick dance and left.

I had one night in Paris and had no idea where to go. A taxi driver dropped me and my partner off outside a tacky club in the Latin quarter I believe it was. We quickly googled nearest Jazz bars and this came up. To avoid a night of Rhianna tunes, which we can easily experience in London me my... More

Situated in a 14th Century Monastery used by Knights Templar and Freemasons but now a very atmospheric Jazz venue. Even if you don't like Jazz 15 Euros will buy you entrance to experience this place.

We had a great time at the cave dancing. Really fun swing music and dance floor. Be careful of the stairs when heading to the club.

This place goes way back. The top floor, where the bar is, was a used for trials during the French Revolution, while the bottom floor was used as a torture chamber. Also, it's been a jazz club for over 50 years and during that time has hosted some jazz greats, including Lionel Hampton and Claude Bolling. The night we were... More

What an incredible recommendation from a hotel concierge! We LOVED this place! A wonderful, cool cave setting with an awesome band and fabulous dancers to watch. Nicky and the Rhythm Dudes were rocking it! Apparently this is a local hangout and there were a dozen or so very talented dancers who are regulars, extremely entertaining. We met another couple from... More

The music was great but I just wasn't feeling the cave like setting. We went on a Friday night and the crowd was very small.
