The 38 RIV - Jazz Club is a very intimist Jazz venue in a vaulted 13th century cellar (with stonework giving it a medieval feel) on the right bank of the Seine River in Paris, France. The club hosts Jazz, Brazilian and ancient music (Baroque) concerts as well as jam sessions (Jazz & Funk) and has closed door amateur jazz jam sessions for developing young players. It is located a few blocks from Notre Dame Cathedral in central Paris. It offers a broad range of jazz styles: Swing, Bebop, Hardbop, modern, bossa nova and more

This is an update of my previous post. The Brazilian jam on saturdays is canceled since october 2017. Thus the place lost its interest ! What a pity !

Classy jazz club situated in the lower basement. Very clean and attractive with original stonework. Serious approach to jazz presented to the highest standards. Comforable seating and attractive bar.
