Concerts take place in the afternoons every weekend and are the perfect way to experience an authentic Parisian summer atmosphere. With numerous affordable modes of transport and competitively priced Paris apartments on offer, this is the perfect time of year for your romantic city break.

After World War I Paris was turned into a new and exciting hotbed of creativity and innovation, particularly in its underground music clubs and bars. This subculture evolved after the first influx of African American soldiers arrived during the war and brought with them their unique brand of music, which grew rapidly in popularity and quickly established itself in the area of Montmartre. This area has become the spiritual home of jazz in the city and was famed for clubs including Le Grande Duc and Bricktop’s. This infectious music quickly spread to the areas of Montparnasse, Saint-Germain-des- Prés and the area around the Champs Elysses. The cabaret clubs of the 20’s and the 30’s were the setting for a significant change in the social and artistic development of Paris during this period with some early pioneers of the scene including Josephine Baker, Darius Milhaud and the now legendary Django Reinhardt.

The popularity of the music grew rapidly and by the 1960’s Paris jazz clubs were regularly blessed with jazz royalty such as Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. Today there remains a strong musical tradition and Paris regularly plays host to reputable artists from the international scene. There is a vast selection of offerings throughout Paris, and with live music every night there will be no excuse for staying in.
