Le Bataclan Reviews
Went there to see Rival Sons in Feb 2019, the place was smaller than I expected wich was nice because I could see the band nicely as well. The only dawnfall is the delay in the clothe storing line... more »
Great sized venue to allow interactions with artists and crowd. Little pricy on beers but wine was a good so enjoyed vino. Factory 56 two doors down,great for pre and post drinks! more »
Great sounding, clean and spacious venue. While the the main hall itself is outstanding, the location of the bar inside it makes it extremely hard to get anything to drink when the crowd rolls in.
An artwork by the British artist Banksy painted as a tribute to the victims of the 2015 terror attack at the Bataclan music hall in Paris has been stolen. The work, which depicted a young female figure with a mournful expression, was cut out and removed from one of the emergency doors at the venue. "We are today filled with a deep sense of indignation," the Bataclan tweeted.
