Le Duplex, Paris
This club is FANTASTIC!! Okay, I must admit I am a bit biased and that is because my close friend's best friend works as a bouncer here and every time I'm in Paris we manage to make our way her as a VIP Guest with free entrance, chamapagne or anything I'd like to drink.
As you approach the street level entrance you feel like you're walking down a Metro station. The place is HUGE and has three levels of dancing. Each level plays its own music with one level playing hip hop, the other plays techno and one (I think) plays new wave.
Whatever the mood you're in, you'll definitely have a great time. Come early, I've noticed the lines get really long!!
Dress Code: What I've noticed is that the dress is club wear, whatever you'd wear at any club goes here...No sneakers though (didn't see anyone wearing them)!!
On the Champs Elyssee, you don't realize how HUGE this place is until you get in and walk down, down down!
And the music...ahhhh...depending upon which level you're on will determine the type of music. Hip hop, techno, no problem! There's a place, a song for everyone!
I found it cool that so many of these places contain such a large underground area, appearing to be much smaller than they truly are.
Out of all the clubs I visited while in Paris, this one was my fav, mainly because I felt comfortable. People were there to have a good time and dance, not necessarily to see and be seen.
Dress Code: Always remember to dress to impress, espeically when in Paris!
I think jeans would be OK for guys and girls.
Frenchnightclubs are generally open until 5am. Most have a door policy and it's not always easy to get in at the first attempt. If you're out on the town in a large group it's a good idea to split into smaller groups outside the door. Groups of men only are often refused entry. Dress up properly and your patience will be rewarded. Bars usually stay open until 2am.
The best-known Paris nightclubs are Queen, Les Bains-Douches, Les Folies Pigalle, Le Bus Palladium, Le Duplex and La Locomotive.
Our last night of our tour was spent enjoying the Paris nightlife...We went to Nouvelle Eve - what a great night that was.

Drink, dance, meet people and have fun...
There are a lot of stuff you can do in Paris by night. If you want to go to bars which is what we usually do around here you might want to go to 'The Guiness Rock Tavern' in the center of Paris. Take the metro, get off at Châtelet and just ask for it everybody knows this bar. They play a lot of famous rock/pop music, usually live american music. The drinks are expensive though (around 10 euros for a cocktail) but you will have a good time.
If you want to go to a club there is one called 'La Scala' and it's on Rue de Rivoli. This place is awesome. Not really expensive during the week (12.5 euros) but the drinks are. If you take one drink only it's ok 'cause you get one free with your entrance ticket.
One is also Famous and nice is The Duplex it's in the 17th arondissements and if you take the metro you get off at Charles de Gaulles Etoile. It's by the Triumph Arc. But it's expensive around 15 euros to get in during the week. You will see girls in bikinis dancing on the floor. The music is good.
Dress Code: Clubs usually require occasional clothes but you can wear jeans it doesn't matter.
If you don't mind paying 25 Euro (incl. 2 drinks) on a sat eve, this is a good place to let yourself go and dance upon uprocking beats. Located close to Arc de Triomphe.
Dress Code: Anything goes...relaxed.
