    A Jazzy Dinner Cruise Takes Visitors Down the Seine

    Two of the best things about Paris are its musical tradition and the Seine River. Thinking about Paris often conjures up images of just those things. Now, guests staying at one of the Sister Hotels Champs-Elysées can enjoy both at the same time by taking a lovely jazz dinner cruise on the Seine.

    This jazz dinner cruise provides participants with a relaxed lounge atmosphere, combined with panoramic views of Parisian monuments. What's more, riders will also get to dine on the boat as they enjoy the sights. On the new, spacious boat, diners sit in comfortable leather club chairs. There is also an outdoor terrace, for those who wish to brave the chill of the winter air. From any spot in the boat, they can look through the large windows as they pass by the extraordinary monuments and bridges of the City of Light.

    Once riders finish their delicious meals, they can disembark and enjoy the "jazz" portion of the evening. Participants will get to visit one of the city's most well-known and respected jazz clubs, Le Caveau de la Huchette, which harkens back to the days and ways of the famous Cotton Club in Harlem. Le Caveau de la Huchette was actually the first club in France where jazz was played.

    Not only is the Le Caveau de la Huchette known for its jazz history, this legendary spot has also played important roles in the history of France. As the meeting spot of both Free Masons and the French revolutionaries, this building still retains certain artifacts from its interesting history. Therefore, visitors to Paris should not miss their chance to spend a relaxing night on a dinner cruise followed by the jazzy sounds of Paris.
