Gospel Jazz Brunch in Paris
We spent Easter Sunday in Paris, starting off with the most fantastically decked out jazz bar, Rayé, for their Gospel Jazz Brunch. We arrived early and were seated at our reserved table. The pianist began playing and this voice, this voice out of a glorious church choir, began singing. A mimosa for the Mrs. and a Bloody Mary for the Mr. and we knew we hit the jackpot.Rayé was recommended to us by lovely friends who had visited their jazz night the weekend before. The raving was real, so we decided to book a brunch spot. Turns out we were the inaugural brunchers at their inaugural brunch! The owner came by to introduce himself and we chatted about how he chose the very details that concocted this Paris meets New York meets Southern gospel of a venue.After an arm hair-raising Amazing Grace and the bread pudding of all bread puddings, he took us down to the 13th century cave turned Kafka bar. Stone walls and ceilings lined the cozy cave. Intimate parties and swanky invite lists, this is the jazz nights of my dreams. If you're in the area, check out their open mic nights on Tuesday, we sure want to.The cave was unreal. Thirtieth birthday party venue settled.
