Firstly you need to be a blues/jazz fan, be patient and not suffer from claustrophobia. And understand that the drink prices make up for no cover charge. Things kick off about 10 downstairs. It is crowded but there is a turnover of customers so catch...More

I go here every trip to Paris. The venue down in the cave is always crowded, but the music's great. Unfortunately, the portable guillotine is gone.

I had a nice experience the with my wife. The band was top quality and the service also very good. They could have a better equipment and a cleaner toilet, but its a nice place anyway.

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the
residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon
never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional
cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this
