First of all - you must understand French in order to enjoy this amazing cabaret! All songs and explanations and everything is in French. This was quite a shock for my friend who came with me. She left early because she didn't get any of the jokes! However, if you do understand French, this is a must do. You will... More

I assume the show is changing quite often, when we were there 8 staff were singing & playing They clearly delivered the promise I assume that sitting when the room is packed isnt fun ALL songs & talks are in French - we dont know a word......

This is the place if you want to experience proper french music We felt like we moved in time. The music is brilliant but be aware they will not let you leave if you want to go earlier The place is like it was in 1930, rough but that is not a point. You cme to listen to the songs... More

Sentimental, original, historical and utterly enjoyable. If you like "chanson française" you will not forget your night.

I am embarrassed to say that I have never been inside Lapin Agile. However, the outside is a lovely landmark worth seeing. More to the point, the walk there, sadly, up a hill, is worth every sore muscle. The sort of neighborhood most tourists don't see and, at the top, right near Lapin Agile, there are wonderful views. Go a... More

Romantic location, great idea, vastly better than soulless cancan shows. However. Not much consideration for audience - wooden benches, limited chance to take a loobreak or get another drink. Unfriendly rigid schoolmaster directing the whole thing. Some really boring solo sessions. Let the younger people take it over!

Very professional singers and intersting place. You can feel back in the time when artists use to get togheter and sing. unfortunately if u don't speak French u fill left out. The price is a bit high but is one of those things u do only one time.

In this place many artists were usual customers. We sat at the same table where Picasso used to stay. The place is now a cabaret. Very good performers that interact with clients. The level of performance is honestly excellent. Pianist, guitarist, accordion and singers play very well Brassens, and many other author are represented. No amplification, only the true power...

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!

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.
