This jazz bar wasn't always known for its smooth jazz acts: boogie-loving GIs frequented its cool, smoky interiors during World War II.

Loved the look, the bartender and bouncer were fun, and the live jazz music and swing dancing were fantastic! If you're looking for a swing dancing venue, this place is great - a variety of dancers... although a bit crowded on the floor!

This is not your place if you are claustrophobic or like things neat. This is a dirty cave with a lot of color and atmosphere, inviting you in a journey in time. Highlights, besides the band, include the lively, enthusiastic crowd of loyal customers who...More

The ONLY place I found Parisians to be unfriendly was at the stifling Caveau. The local dancers seemed to resent visitors crowding their floor, especially Asians and Americans, and they were very rude. Also, when my friend asked a bartender to make a martini, he...More

Arrive early for a decent view and a seat! This was one of the best nights out i’ve had. I love jazz and the band were great. Everyone was up and dancing and encouraging each other to let loose. I will definitely be returning!

We had a lot of fun at this place, it had a great vibe, there isn't a lot of space down there and the drink selection is not great.

We stopped off here for one music set. The music is good but the real reason I think people go is to watch the couple dancing. It’s decently fun. It is hard to find seats and the cover charge is high. But we did enjoy...More

This is a old time jazz club with a great atmosphere. Combination of locals and tourists. Some amazing dancers. 15e cover per person and drinks expensive and not very strong. Set break was close to 30 minutes after playing for about an hour. That being...More

We were in Paris with our 19 year old twins and all of us loved our night here. A trip highlight. Enjoyed watching people dancing and the joy on their faces, listening to the music. Highly recommend and will go back next time in Paris....More

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the

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

When I was there the main act finished around 1:30 and they closed up by 2 or 2:30. This was a Tuesday I think, though.

First in, best dressed. Always packed but worth it. I have found it easier to get a table upstairs when band is playing downstairs. But it is not guaranteed.
