The clocks have gone back, the nights are drawing in and the beautiful autumn leaves have fallen from the trees and are quickly being turned into mushy compost on the pavement. And it keeps raining.
Finding things to do indoors suddenly seems like an extremely good idea.
In the past couple of weeks, I’ve discovered two good live music venues to recommend for a rainy evening in
The next weekend, I went to the Flèche d’Or, which is in a converted station in the 20th, next to Père Lachaise cemetery. Entrance is 8 euros, which includes 4 euros towards a drink and performances by up to 4 live bands. It was a bigger venue than the Sentier des Halles and a bit empty when we went in, but it quickly filled up as the more popular bands came on. I personally didn’t like the music so much, but there was plenty of variety and it could definitely have been a place for a fun night out.
