Trip Report Les bons spectacles de Whathello - Paris

Jump to last reply

Le Lapin Agile, Montmartre.

In some thread I saw StCirq mentioning it. So I finally went to le Lapin Agile...
It is a very old house in front of the vineyards of Montmartre, and started to have shows in 1860. The place has a low ceiling, blackened walls due to smoking for more than a century, old pictures of celebrities who went to le Lapin since decades : Aristide Bruant, Georges Brassens, Claude Nougaro, Philippe Debussy performed here at one time or another.
Today there are about a dozens not so young but quite crazy people singing old french songs and some of their own in a room that can house at max 35 people ...
I was surprised to sing along 'Fanchon' (Fanchon, quoique bonne chrétienne, fut baptisée avec du vin) and some others that rang a bell (mostly 'chansons à boire' - songs to drink).
A very good evening. Real typical french, lots of fun and laughter, but better to come if you understand (some) french.
Cost is low (28 € comprising a glass of welcome and I had a Leffe for 5€).

We had dinner close by (chez Ginette, at metro Lamarck Caulaincourt), an old café-brasserie where the 'planche côte d'azur' is excellent. (charcuterie and cheese).

I had a hotel close by - 40€ for a very acceptable room - in the 18th.
When Kerouac says you can find correct hotels in the outer arrondissements he is right !
Whathello.
