We’ve seen Jimmy Buffet here three times now. The venue is special, but be prepared for what to expect. First it’s tiny. Second, it’s old. Third it’s unique and full of character. A Victorian music hall, closed up for sixty years and reopened in the...More

Great venue to see a show! Saw Jimmy Buffett there and it was spectacular. The theater itself includes a main floor and a balcony. The bar includes limited selections, but is very efficient. Toilets are not sufficient for large shows, but it's not too much...More

It is a nice venue, old but nice. My only complaint is that it is too hot in there. Entry was easy but long lines for the bathroom and the bar.

We traveled from Italy to Paris for the weekend. We were in luck and discovered Jimmy Buffett was in town so we found some tickets online and went. La Cigale is a great venue for that event. It was almost like Jimmy Buffett was performing...More

We saw Jimmy Buffet at La Cigale at the end of September. What a show! La Cigale is comfortable, well organized and a great place to see live music.

First visit 9.23.17. The efficient entry was encouraging. However, once inside the venue proved to be understaffed, poorly ventilated, and awkwardly laid out. The upstairs appeared to have fixed seats which all had an excellent view of the stage in quite close proximity. The general...More

Awesome venue to see this concert - we sat on left side, seats just above the orchestra, row F unobstructed view - PERFECT. Buffet and the coral reefer band were great and the crowd so much fun.....perfect excuse to go to Paris!

Fun!! Jimmy was great of course. The place is cosy and fun. Quite warm all together so don't "overdress" 😉 Kind bartenders and a good ambiance. Big drinks for a good price. Enjoy!

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
