An institution for jazz amateurs, who appreciate the good food and great music without having to jostle for a view to see the stage. The dining/concert hall is inspired by the jazz of New Orleans and the soul of Detroit, but also gospel, blues, rock’n roll, Latin jazz and Bossa Nova. Piano virtuoso Philippe Bas is in residence on the terrace every evening in summer during ‘l’apéro swing’ – a great idea for a fine summer evening. The clientele is a little older thanks to the 60 dinner and concert fee, though you can also do the concert solo (€25 with a drink), and students and under-25s pay €15 with a drink.
