The place for jazz in Paris! I visited here and listened to some excellent jazz music. Downstairs plays host to famous international performers, I saw Craig Handy doing a tribute to Dexter Gordon. Upstairs you'll find top-notch local musicians burning! If you're a jazz fan, this is where you want to be in Paris.

I enjoyed my time at Sunset sunside. They have different jazz troupes almost every other night. Try to get there early so you can get a seat in the front; it's a small venue and can fill up quickly. A nice alternative to a dance club!

Some pre-trip internet research indicated that a jazz menouche (gypsy jazz) band was scheduled to play a tribute to Django Reinhardt during our stay in Paris, so I booked two tickets about a week before the trip. I was a little concerned about giving credit card info to a venue to which I have never been but there were no... More

We went to hear the Al Cohn / Zoot Sims Tribute gig, featuring Ivan Baldet & Michael Cheret in the Sunset, which is the downstairs venue. We had to wait in the street for a while for the previous gig to finish, which was not particularly pleasant on a Friday night surrounded by loud beer drinkers. They have some weird... More

As the name implies, this is a two-venue spot - Sunside is the ground-level Jazz spot and Sunset is the basement venue. This is a review of the Sunside. We went to hear the Olivier Hutman Trio, which played to a full house. As for most such Paris venues, we were packed like sardines, but it was not uncomfortable. Most... More

Arrived a bit late during last set. Great music, good atmosphere. Place is full so not easy to find a table. Drinks menu offers plenty and service is good. Will go back for a next time, arriving a bit earlier!

If you love jazz Paris is for you. Baiter Sale is next door so drop in to this great place and then go even better next door! No entry fee - pay for drinks. Short walk from the Latin Quarter. Love this place

This is the type of Jazz club that you see in the old movies. It is a cramped space where even the bad seats are within 10 meters of the stage. The acoustics are amazing!! Get there early and get a front or second row seat and then get yourself a beverage and watch the magic of a live performance... More

I have been going back to this club for years, spending almost every night i am in Paris. (Tried Duc des Lombards once, see my dismal review on that!) Excellent jazz for the most part, two separate clubs with two different programs, yes it is cramped, but it's a jazz club for goodness sakes! You get to meet nice people... 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.
