“boogie woogie”(3 reviews)
This jazz bar wasn't always known for its smooth jazz acts: boogie-loving GIs frequented its cool, smoky interiors during World War II.

Caveau de la Huchette in rue de la Huchette. I’ve been coming here for some twenty years. It is a very popular jazz club in the cellars of the building. At weekends now, it is too packed to dance. Some people have absolutely no manners...More

We came here for a memorable Saturday night - great jazz, wine, and atmosphere in terrific surroundings. The club is openly trading on its recent La La Land feature, which is perhaps slightly overdone. It's such a great venue in its own right that it...More

Great jazz! The bands are great and there’s room for couples to dance. Music downstairs, bar is upstairs. Love the venue but know that it gets packed downstairs quick.

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.
