DIESE ONZE JAZZ CLUB
Diese Onze Jazz Club has only been opene since 2007, but it has instantly beceme the hideout of some of the best jazzmen in town, featuring one to two performances per day (gypsy guitars around 6pm, then different bands in the evening, from Montreal and abroad). Its unique Parisian boite-like setting and dark leather booths section makes it also the ideal venue for a romantic evening.
