At La Cave du 38’Riv you feel and breath jazz.
While walking on the Rue de Rivoli, close to Paris’ Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall), you come across with this tiny cozy venue, a vaulted stone cellar from the XIIth century, whose dimensions are in contrast with the magnitude of the live shows inside.
In a warm and friendly atmosphere, this location will take you to a second half of the 20th century Paris, when the city was considered as the worldwide capital of jazz.
The shows range from jams thematic sessions (where you can for example fly to Brazil’s Bossa Nova), jazz concerts or baroque and classical music on Sundays.
With shows all week long, la Cave du 38’Riv sounds like a great deal for music lovers on weekdays or weekends, especially for those winter nights when there’s nothing more fulfilling than having a glass of wine, while listening to quality music, in an intimate setting, that makes you feel like as if we were visiting friends.
Friday evening, after the jam sessions, the show goes on with late jam sessions, a gathering of amateurs and professional musicians that goes up until 4:00 am.
Prices are reasonable (2.5€ to 10€), and you might want to try the sandRiv’ch as well , the famous house sandwich (ham, comté cheese, salad, butter, in an old style baguette) – this is actually the only option for snacking.
