   The Quecumbar

The bar began as a seed that sprouted and blossomed many years ago at the annual Django Reinhardt Gypsy Jazz festival held in Samois, France. The bar become a reality due to pig-headedness and tenacity, fuelled by the inspirational off-the-wall friendly quirky 1930s charm and nostalgia of pre-war France, where the aroma of garlic mingled with the sounds of typical bal musette street café music. This is where Django Reinhardt played the guitar with magic in his hands and invented the finest ever Hot Club Gypsy jazz, the birth of European jazz, making Paris swing to the newly discovered liberty of unconventional but melodious rhythms. The bar is for over-18s only.
