The Gypsy Jazz Temple & The Flea Market | Paris, France

We spent the afternoon walking through the 18th arrondissemont and found ourselves at La Chope des Puces. It was our 8th day in Paris and we couldn’t believe we hadn’t seen live music; stumbling upon this was more than we could have asked for. This was the Gypsy Jazz Temple where the legendary Django Reinhardt played. This bar is known to house some of the best gypsy jazz musicians, some of which are descendants of Reinhardt himself.

Everyone has heard a lick or two from Django whether they know it or not. Here are my top three:

1. Minor Swing

2. Dark Eyes

3. Night and Day

While we were there, we stumbled upon the flea market – Le Marché dux Puces de Clignancourt. This flea market is a maze full of awesome antiques and art. We got separated at one point, and while looking for our friend, I found the coolest, authentic restaurant tucked in the back- you can see it in my video below.
