Caveau de la Huchette, Paris
Tucked away on a small cobblestone street in S. Michel ...this club looks like nothing special. Take a peek inside to see what 9 euros cover will get you. You may be disappointed to see only a small bar with limited seating.
Don't fret...pay the cover...it gets better, I promise! Downstairs, you will find a live Jazz band playing popular tunes as people of all ages dance the night away.
People were very friendly here. A friend and I made an attempt at swing dancing...we bumped into everyone on the dancefloor- nobody cared.
Dress Code: No dress code...I seem to remember people in shorts, jeans, slacks, and dresses. No standard.
More Paris Jazz.
A little more intimate than Duc d Lombard, in a "cave" in St. Michel. The downstairs cave is a very good place to dance to traditional jazz.
Some strange things were happening in the back room of the cave.
A very old cellar in Paris, supposedly Robespierre was tried and convicted here ...
Dress Code: Casual.
It is hot, humid and fun in the basement cave where the music and dancing are happening.
Cooler but boring in the upstairs bar.
This place was great. Live american style jazz with dancing downstairs. A cozy quieter bar upstairs. The Caveau de la Huchette building has been here a long time and has a very colorful history should you care to research it.
Dress Code: None that I noticed, although I would recommend a shirt with some sort of collar.
Cool set up - looks like a cave - naturally "Caveau ". The bartender was very entertaining, but the music downstairs was even cooler. Great jazz players/singers.
Lots of neat looking shops along that same street if you decide to venture there early or after a show.
Dress Code: casual
This is indeed, as the other VT members note, a great little venue. We went very recently, and after climbing down some stairs we sat in a little converted cellar listening to a great trad jazz trio. The music was very enjoyable, but after 30 minutes or so the room gradually filled with locals who proceded to take to the floor and show off some truly incredible moves. I have never seen anything like it!! Some were young, some were older, but it was thrilling to watch them. I don't know if they were part of a club (we went on a Monday night) but seeing them in action was worth the price of admission alone!
Dress Code: Didn't seem to be one, although (as it seemed all over Paris) people dress well and with style.
Jazz club located in the Latin Quarter in a medieval cellar filled with great sound and a comfy atmosphere!
Dress Code: Snazzy, jazzy CHIC !!!
