Along with everything else, Paris clubbing is hot. Paris night clubs have long been a staple of nightlife France.
Alcazar, 62 rue Mazarine, deep in the heart of Odeon district, is the brainchild of British restaurateur Terence Conran. Besides offering some of the finest food in the world, Alcazar is also one of the hottest dance spots in the Paris clubbing community. With a line of international DJs on staff, multi-level dance floors, and themed nights, Alcazar lights up the night.
Amnesia, 42 Rue Vielle Du Temple, gaining popularity in the Paris clubbing scene makes for an exciting night. Amnesia is rock star Johnny Hallyday's effort on the gay nightclub scene of Paris. The interiors are glitzy and glamorous, so are the invitees. You will be sure to get your feet tapping and body swaying with the constant music being dished out by the many DJs. A great addition to Paris night clubs.
Arbuci, 25 rue de Buci, is best known for its fish and oysters. With an ultra-modern setting, get a serving of art and jazz too. Groove to the music, celebrate with friends, try some concoctions at the bar or simply lounge about. The decor and lighting are interesting as are the DJ's tunes. Reservations are necessary for large groups.
Bains, rue du Bourg-l'Abbé, is one of the most exclusive of the entire Paris clubbing scene. The strict door policy adhered to by the capital's most star-studded nightclub means that trainers are definitely out and smart gear is in. Better still, go with a regular and you might have a chance, but you should still expect to queue for at least half an hour. Once inside, grab a piece of the action down in the basement, where clubbers groove to the sound of R&B, disco and soul. The less fainthearted might try checking out the VIP lounge and Thai restaurant upstairs. Nightlife France was changed forever when Bains opened its doors.
Balajo, rue de Lappe, is one of the oldest clubs in the Paris clubbing community. Founded in 1936 by Jo France, the name has since become synonymous with java (popular waltzes) and accordion music. At the time, Bastille was the liveliest working-class area in Paris. Times have changed though: nowadays the Balajo has become somewhat old-fashioned, with salsa and disco replacing the popular dances of old. Generally, it's a middle-aged crowd that comes here looking for a bit of nostalgia. If you fancy somewhere completely different, this place is well worth paying a visit - even just for a look at the period décor.
Banana Café, rue de la Ferronnerie, is where you are gay and proud of it. In this bar, the atmosphere is wild and everything is done to guarantee a successful party. The tropical décor is incredibly kitsch, particularly during the themed evenings, which attract creatures wearing the most unbelievable costumes. Techno and house rhythms often invite regulars to exuberant dancing on the ground floor, whereas in the basement you can sip a cocktail and sing along to the popular tunes played by the pianist. This spot is one of the most popular for nightlife France fun.
Whether you want nostalgia, or new age fun, Paris night clubs have what you need. Make plans to visit Paris on your next vacation.
