Caveau de la Huchette

Jazz in Latin Quarter

Housed in a medieval caveau (cellar) used as a courtroom and torture chamber during the Revolution, this club is where many of the jazz greats (Count Basie, Art Blakey) have played since the end of WWII. It attracts its fair share of tourists, but the atmosphere can be more electric than at the more serious jazz clubs. Sessions start at around 9.30pm.
