Walking down rue Jacob is like stepping back in time. Filled with discreet luxury hotels and charming old-fashioned bookshops, this little historic street is also home to Caveau des Légendes. This hideaway draws impressive names like René Urtreger and Peter King, representing jazz from the 1950s to the present day. When a suit of knight’s armour greets you at the door, you’re already swept up in a thing of legend and fantasy. At the bottom of the stairs, through a heavy oak door, lies a medieval tavern lit by iron lanterns hung from a vaulted ceiling and candelabras on the stone walls. You’d think you were in a medieval castle. It all sets the perfect mood for their clairvoyant nights on Wednesdays, when a glimpse of your future will give you a shiver as your Tarot cards are dealt. Musicians take over the baby grand piano tucked into an alcove for musical and cabaret nights, and the space lends itself equally well to plays. Check out their calendar of events to learn more.
