We just went last night to see Jimmy Buffett perform here for the 3rd time in the past 3 years. The actual concert venue is very small and intimate, which makes it a great venue for a concert. While the venue is older, I think...More

from inside, we could smell the cigarette smoke that came from outside. Besides that, it was crowded, and the ventilation system was not strong enough.

This was our first visit to La Cigale. We had seen Jimmy Buffett and the Steve Miller Band at the Olympia in the past. La Cigale is a smaller theatre and we were able to get a seat in the third row for a fraction...More

I went to see Jimmy Buffett for a second time at La Cigale. The theater is nice and cozy and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. However the lighting is not very good and the restrooms really should be updated....More

Went to see Gregory Porter. The venue was a nice place to listen to music, although I have to say it got very warm. I think it made it all the better as we met Gregory Porter before in La Marmite.

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
