About Caveau des Oubliettes
Housed in a deeply atmospheric medieval dungeon - complete with instruments of torture, keep your eyes peeled for the guillotine this maze of old stone and underground passages has become popular as a live music spot, a place to let your hair down and listen to cool tunes. Mondays are Pop Rock Jam nights, while Tuesdays are all about Jazz. Throughout the week there are various other jam sessions check their website for a full programme - and the place attracts a pleasingly mixed crowd. The vaulted basement space is small but that just adds to the appeal the drinks are basic too, no fancy cocktails here: it's all about the music - and the extra frisson that comes from thinking about the catacombs of which this bar is only a part, the tunnels winding under the city, the things they've witnessed over the centuries. The bar stays open until 4am which is also a bonus in our books.
