My wife sang in a Jazz duo Aintmisbehavin 20 years ago and we live Jazz. Last Saturday night we had a night in Melbourne at Paris Cat Jazz Club and were so impressed with Rebecca Mendoza and the intimacy and ambience of the space.

Paris Cat is one of the most appealing jazz venues in the world as far as we have experienced having visited clubs in London, Rome, Paris and Kyoto in recent years. Delightful atmosphere that embodies everything a jazz club should be - intimate, dimly lit...More

We called in to enjoy a gig led by artist Jess Fairlie on Saturday 18 August 2018. The venue itself is everything you’d imagine a jazz club to be - dimly lit, quirky and intimate in scale. I’d probably go as far as saying you...More

Bar staff are very friendly and welcoming. The drinks prices are reasonable. It's great value for quality jazz in such an intimate setting. Decor is between fin de siecle and kitch. But it's all about the music. A superb evening.

Tucked away in a nondescript alley in the city, this jazz club has a nice intimate feel, featuring both local and international jazz artistes. We had a local band Vintage Roots taking us down memory lane, with a retro take on music from the 60s...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
