They let us in free I guess because we looked a bit jazz. Great atmosphere, superb music, the cloisters were awash with twisting limbs as young and old danced through the night. Of course the drinks were expensive, its Paris not a student bar in Hull... get there on the right night and you'll love every minute... When is the right night? Who knows its jazz people.

Massive tourist trap. They charged 20 euros to get in after not letting us see the 'surprise' downstairs. We then had to listen to a dull jazz band surrounded by tourists who all felt cheated - some old timers liked it though. The atmosphere was numb. We went and got a drink - a pint is 10 euro too! So we decided to leave but they refused to give us a refund telling us that 'if we did that to you we would have to do it with everyone and would go out of business'. He said it all with that line. They trap you with the entrance fee and then they have you - because they know fresh tourists will be there tomorrow. A fool for falling for it I guess.
