I had lunch at the Montreux Jazz Café in Paris after travelling from Zurich to Paris by train. The café is located in hall 1 of the Gare de Lyon in Paris.
I love the fact that you can listen to jazz music while having dinner, a snack or a meal. The café is perfect if you have to wait for a train and want to spend some time in a colorful restaurant with beautiful black and white pictures of the Montreux Jazz Festival.
I had the daily menu and an ice cream dessert. The menu, fish and rice, was okay, but the portion was quite small. It was more the size of an appetizer.
There are four Montreux Jazz Cafés worldwide: in Paris, London, Geneva (airport) and Zurich (airport). It’s a hommage to the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival, the most important jazz event in the world. Born from the friendship between Quincy Jones and Claude Nobs, the Montreux Jazz Café concept was conceived as a way to offer festivalgoers a place where artists and music lovers could mingle.
The café in Paris was inaugurated in November 2013. It is said to be one of the biggest brasseries in France and to have 4000 clients a day. Opening hours: 6 am to 22 pm.
