What to expect

Enjoy a walking tour and learn the history of jazz in Paris. You will stop at 2 cafés, Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore, which formed the epicenter for writers, intellectuals, and musicians.

Discover the former location of Club Saint-Germain-des-Prés where performances were held in the cellars of the clubs. See the hotel where jazz greats Kenny Clarke and Bud Powell held late-night jam sessions after their gigs. Stop near the site of the former Tabou club, where French writer, singer, songwriter, musician, and jazz promoter Boris Vian performed in 1947.

Continue your visit near Pont Neuf and listen to your guide telling you about the jazz scene in Montmartre. The area, which once teemed with nightclubs, saw the development of the French chanson in the pre-WWI period.

You’ll continue into the 5th arrondissement to the Caveau de la Huchette, the oldest jazz club in Paris. Crossing the Seine River, you’ll make your way to the Châtelet district, and your final stop on the tour. There are several jazz clubs in this area, including Le Duc des Lombards, where you’ll enjoy a brunch with a glass of champagne if you choose the option, accompanied by a live concert.
