Le Balajo

Live Music in Bastille & Eastern Paris

A mainstay of Parisian nightlife since 1936, this ancient ballroom is devoted to evening salsa classes and Latino music during the week, with an R&B slant on weekends when the dance floor rocks until aube (dawn). But the best time to visit is for its old-fashioned musette (accordion music) gigs, on from 2pm to 7pm Sundays and Mondays.
