Our history

Since 1865

Built by architect Charles Duval in 1864, Le Bataclan was originally called “Le grand Café Chinois-Théâtre Ba-ta-clan”. The name changed but the Chinese pagoda appearance remains.
The Bataclan has always been atypical amongst Parisian venues. It has been the first “café-concert” free of its artistic choices since its beginnings. For 150 years, the venue reflects the Parisian culture and way of life. Rock, French music, rap, electro and world music… the Bataclan still a crucial step for many artists’ careers. Not to mention the public, always at the rendezvous to share with their favorite bands moments of happiness and joy.
