Very little theatre venue with a good atmosphere. We had seats at the balcony, the sound was good, we really enjoyed the concert there.

We experienced Jimmy Buffett in this quaint venue. The sound and lights are great. I think every seat was a good one.

Just returned from Paris where the highlight of the trip was two nights of Parrothead heaven at La Cigale! The theater is small and very intimate. Had tickets on front row of the balcony and I swear it was like you could touch Jimmy from there. Absolutely one of the smallest JB concerts Ive ever attended. Amazing time, good sound... More

Went to see Jimmy Buffet at La Cigale and I am glad we made it! There was no line to get in, staff was friendly and the little theatre venue was great a great change of pace from the venues I'm use to in the US. If there is another concert while I'm here in Paris at La Cigale, I... More

We just went last night to see Jimmy Buffett perform here for the 3rd time in the past 3 years. The actual concert venue is very small and intimate, which makes it a great venue for a concert. While the venue is older, I think that just helps add to the atmosphere of being in Montmartre for a concert. In... More

from inside, we could smell the cigarette smoke that came from outside. Besides that, it was crowded, and the ventilation system was not strong enough.

This was our first visit to La Cigale. We had seen Jimmy Buffett and the Steve Miller Band at the Olympia in the past. La Cigale is a smaller theatre and we were able to get a seat in the third row for a fraction of the cost of a ticket in the states. The theatre is very small and... 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.
