Great sound and great venue

Music was great, if it wasn't so hot, it would've gotten a five star. The heat was close to unbearable

The Sunset Sunside is one of three jazz clubs on rue des Lombards which are conveniently located around the Chatelet metro station in the Les Halles going out area. It was the first one to open its doors in 1983 and in 2001 even replaced its restaurant area with a second club called Sunside. There are two concerts each night... More

Great jazz for sure! I went to hear a popular jazz saxophone player and his quartet. The music was amazing. The sound in the club is superb. It’s a great place to listen to music. I went downstairs to the bathroom and there was entirely different concert going on down there. Incredible! Back to the main venue: it’s a very... More

The place opened on time and we had no problem picking up our tickets and getting seated. Unfortunately when you walk in to the club, there is a space for smoking that is closed off to the outside and YET opens into the Jazz club! So even though we sat right up front, there was really no way to completely... More

Great spot to listen to live music in a tiny, but fun club. The seats are set up in rows, like you're at a small, but well attended concert. Drink service during the show is nice, and hey have a great bar. Book in advance, it gets packed.

The Sunset Sunside club is a lovely jazz bar/ restaurant on rue des Lombards in the 1e arrondissement in Paris. Small & intimate, Sunset Sunside hosts jazz greats in a wonderful atmosphere. The place is very popular and so advance bookings are essential. Most of the online booking sites list Sunset Sunside, so getting tickets is relatively smooth. Recommended!

Intimate, cozy and friendly, this jazz venue is a fantastic spot to catch a terrific show and a few cocktails. We were lucky to see Bennie Maupin and his quartet, and it was beyond amazing. Be sure to book in advance on weekends, the place was full. Great staff and good bar.

This was such a great night that we recently enjoyed at Sunset Sunside! We were lucky enough to experience Otis Taylor and his band and they were AMAZING. The tiny, intimate cellar where the show is makes for such a personal experience, you are so close to the band. We were so close one of the violinists was pretty much... More

Good place… good sound… It is not the place to have dinner... I went to listen Jazz and I had an opportunity to watch Riccardo Del Fra and band… I had to book in advance… big concerts are always full. The region is nice… many people and 3 or 4 Jazz clubs

Located conveniently close to Chatelet (Metro Line 1), Sunset Sunside Jazz Club offers live jazz in two locations. Modestly priced at about 20€ a ticket for three hours entertainment, this is a fun place to spend an evening. However, be aware that drinks are at club prices (large beer 9€, whisky 12€) so it's very easy to run up a... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
