Didn't really know what to expect when arriving. We were ushered into a dimly lit room and directed to a table with some other guests for the evening. Soon we were offered the house drink, a sweet cherry liquor which was very tastey and the main entertainment started. Out of the blue, a group of what I assumed at first... More

The French version of a folk club but the songs are more music hall. Packed on a Saturday night in January with regulars who provide the entertainment - joining in all the choruses is a must for the audience! Worth a visit for a fun evening Parisian style!

For 3 hours you hear the best french poems and chansons by wonderful singers accompanied by a very talented musician who plays the plano,a violin and a flute. Sometimes you can join the singing if you are familiar with the song. You go there for the "chansons" - not to eat. The price is very fair and reasonable.

As others have mentioned, this is not a typical nightclub. The room is small and can be overheated and crowded. Seating is not comfortable. You will be served one drink upon arrival, but getting another requires getting the attention of staff - not likely. The singers are wonderful and remain 'in character' throughout the evening. They sing a range of... More

The place was historical and the songs were very french. Often difficult to follow for foreigners (practically all participants were not french). Artists OK and they did the best to involve the audience. Nice. But too long. 4 hours without pause and whithout the possibility of moving.Too many people. Room small and people everywhere. The drink included in the price,... More

We went tonight expecting some traditional French cabaret, and that it was. Problem is, if you don't speak French, you will miss all the jokes. It is extremely hot inside. They cram a lot of people in to a very small space, and some people do some singing In the middle of the room. The worst part was that it... More

Small intimate setting of no more than 40-50 seats. There were about 38 of us in there when the music started the guy on the piano made eye contact with me and I felt like we might be in for a good show. The bar lady came around and gave us our first drink inclusive in the 28 euro entry... More

My 18-year-old daughter and I had such a fabulous time. I don't know French and it didn't matter. These cabaret artists put their heart and soul into this 4-hour (yes 4 hours!) show and maybe it is too long but it surely is a true Parisian cabaret experience. We LOVED the accordion lady that sang a couple of Edith Piaf... More

We didn't make reservation, and it's lucky that we got a chance to get in. It's very crowded and dark inside. No photo or video is allowed. Most of people could sing the classic French chansons with the singer. Nice environment.

Before going I only read one bad review. The rest were great. Let me tell you, it starts out with people being seated at tables along a wall, then some regular looking old French people (one young) sit, not perform, at a table in the middle of the room. They sing songs while seated for about an half an hour.... 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.
