Le Chat Noir good vibes since 1985

A legendary place near Geneva, this club is the only spot that combines real bar skills and a live music venue. This lovely and comfortable place can welcome you and your friends for food, drinks, music and fun until the early morning.

Cocktails and music

Live music and quest for national and international breaking acts is the main purpose of our venue. Our friendly bar team will serve and amaze you with its creativity and technics. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll may even appreciate some “Flair bartending ”.

In 2012, the place went for a big makeover. If the atmosphere and soul of our Black Cat (Chat Noir - in french) stayed the same, we now triple our club capacity. No dress code, all style music and late opening… a must see where you can come for dinner, enjoy live music and stay even longer for DJ’s sessions. See you at Le Chat Noir.

Nice atmosphere

Went here for a drink last night, it is a nice atmosphere especially for genevan standards. The drink prices are fine and the staff is nice.

At Chat Noir you will probably get the best cocktails in Carouge. The place is a club, bar, café and restaurant in one. It attracts cocktail and music lovers. I love the location!

Went last night Saturday night had a lovely meal staff, was very helpful explaining the menu, enjoyed the atmosphere. Unfortunately we were told it was free to go to the club downstairs until the DJ came on and then there was a charge but when we went to watch the band downstairs we were told there was a 15 franc...

Hi Mike, First of all, thanks for this few words. I'm so sorry to realize that there was a misunderstanding between the event responsive and the night-shift staff. As we have different and multiple live activities organized downstairs, it's pretty easy to mix up days and prices. Our Guys will always be there to serve and help you, but when... More

Expensive food for what it is. The "tapas" plate was like over 40 francs? For fried shrimps, fried veggies, fried chicken... and some kind of ham and cheese on toast that was... fried. On the good side, real cocktails, made by hand by barmans that actually know what they are doing. Average price for cocktails; 15 francs... not bad, but... More

Had a great night. Reasonable price on the door (CHF25 in advance or 35 on the door). Was busy but not stupidly full (nothing worse than a half hour wait for the bar or a bar so full you keep elbowing people). Drinks were reasonably priced, good crowd and good music. Bar upstairs with dj, and downstairs has a bar... More

In the heart of lively Carouge, at the outskirt of Geneva is the Au Chat Noir. Good ambiance, great live music and excellent cocktails. So, do you need any more info?
