The name might lead you to expect a real old-school jazz cub, but this bar-club, open evenings from Friday to Sunday, offers an exclusively Brazilian program of live music. It’s an institution for the Carioca and Paulista communities of Paris who come here to sing some MPB (Música Popular Brasileira), dance some samba and listen to Brazilian jazz. on an average night, two or three successive bands take to the stage and play until 5am. On Saturdays, the headline acts are better known than those playing on Friday, while Sunday evenings begin gently with a Brazilian jazz jam before moving on to MPB. Things always end the same way, though, with a tropical-themed party.Apart from Brazilians, many regulars from the neighbourhood also come to soak up the tropico-Latino atmosphere and unwind. Admission is free but drinks are expensive (€10 a beer), and beware the occasionally sleazy clientele and aggressive bouncers.
