  • Moulin Rouge

    Paris Nightlife

    I saw a show in Feb. 2015 at the Moulin Rouge. We paid about $170 USD per person, which included the 2-hour show, and half a bottle of champagne. I would say it great value for what we got - an amazing performance, great atmosphere in a one of a kind venue which is world famous. The acrobatic acts were amazing, and I also enjoyed the songs and the...

  • Pubs & Bars

    Lyon Nightlife

    ## Vieux Lyon This area has plenty to offer. The most well known bars are the british pubs. From south to North, here they are. Get down at the "Vieux Lyon" Metro station. Southward you have plenty of little bars/clubs, probably the best one is the Johnny Walshes, warm and nice, a bit overpacked sometimes with live music and quizz on Sunday night....

  • Bars and Restaurants

    Lille Nightlife

    Being outside of the main tourist areas and historic centers, the people you'll find near the Wazemmes Marche are any combination of locals, students or resident expats. With that being said, the establishments here tend to be less trendy, cheaper and more relaxed. I came to a few of the places in the area, but preferred Oxford due to its beer...

  • Nightclubs / Bars

    Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Nightlife

    The Clubhouse opened in 2005 with much fanfare. They do not seem to get too busy but somehow are getting by year after year. It appeals to city based adults who want to come out to the mountains but stay in touch with their metro roots. They are a private club but anyone can come in and buy drinks when they are not crowded (which is most nights)....

  • Montmartre & Pigalle

    Paris Nightlife

    Would it be possible to go to Paris without walking one night around Montmartre, descending the narrow streets to Pigalle, and watching one of the liveliest quarters of the world? For us that was the whole program, but for who wants something else. All other kind of programs are available and openly offered.

  • Festival des Lumières

    Lyon Nightlife

    Really big and beautiful festival. The lights are everywhere, you may drink wine, eat chestnuts and enjoy the lights and the elation of the people around you. All of the performances of light-masters are worth seeing them. Don't miss any of them!

    Lille Nightlife

    There is one major street in central Lille that has a selection of small bars, themes or foreign, restaurants from Greek to Chinese. You're looking for rue Solferino! It's actually not that far from the centre Grand Place, can walk there within 20 mins. Such bars include, the Highlmander Pub, where you can drink sweet blonde beer and even have...

  • Buddha Bar

    Paris Nightlife

    Been there several times over the years. In 2002 waiters were friendly and ambiance was inspiring. Food was prepared with love and attention. Over the years prices went sky-high and the quality of food went from exclusive to more avarage; cocktails though are still good, yet not great and to expensive. Crowd changed over the years from (partially...

  • Restaurents

    Lyon Nightlife

    The old part of the city has a good selection of restaurants. There are also touristy types of streets: full of cheap, reasonable-to-poor quality restaurants (very similar to those streets in the Latin Quarter in Paris). If you wander around to the quieter streets, you may find better French places. Shorts and t-shirt were what I wore. In the more...

  • Lido de Paris

    Paris Nightlife

    The (real) Lido de Paris!!! I saw the show, "Lido de Paris" in Las Vegas a couple of times. So, when my friend's father, a concierge at a grand Parisian Hotel, arranged, for us, dinner show seats at the Lido de Paris I was thrilled to have the chance to see the original. The venue was smaller than in Vegas, the show was equal, the food and...

    Lille Nightlife

    Organizing a tango marathon in such a nice place was really a great idea....High ceiling, red atmoshere, good floor... The idea was to make the tango freaks from Brussels and from Paris meet eachother in one place...but Brussels was more present than Paris...Maybe another time? For most of us, the music was good (but we would have loved much more...

    Paris Nightlife

    We went under the impression this was a carbaret show, as read on the internet. We arrived and were over charged for our seating area. The two women at the front desk admitted we were not in the diamond seating area but the gold. The felt it was the charge was accurate because in the computer it says we were seated in the diamond area, I said that...

  • La Locomotive

    Paris Nightlife

    Over the years, I have played La Locomotive on a few occasions with diffrent bands, the most recent being Sing-Sing and previous to that Dreamfield. Always good fun to do, if a little nervy (no sound check!). The people at the Locomotive clubs always treat you well, as do most venues in France.

    Paris Nightlife

    On the left bank of the Seine at Quai Saint-Bernard between the Sully and Austerlitz bridges there is a park named after the Corsican singer and movie star Tino Rossi (1907-1983). This park was created between 1975 and 1980 by the architect Daniel Badani. Unlike most Paris parks, which close at sunset, this one stays open all night and has...

    Paris Nightlife

    At night the Champs comes to life! There are many shops open to until at least 9pm and on Weekends they are open until much later. Most of the restaurants around this area are also open until much later, but do expect to pay a small premium for the tourist rates. The widest avenue in the world demands that you look chic and stylish... after all...

    Paris Nightlife

    It might sound boring for those of you who like to go clubbing or dancing or bar-touring at night, but believe me: just sitting in front of the Eiffel Tower (at the Trocadero gardens) and watching people pass by, the boats sail along the Seine river, and the wonderful lights of Paris all around you is a WONDERFUL night activity!! I did it twice...

  • Walking

    Paris Nightlife

    Not looking for judgement here, but I decided to go slightly off the beaten path in Paris, and experience some adult services. One thing I can say is do NOT trust the local escort agencies, of course I didn't try them all but the two I tried were horrible. Enough said. After reading Richard McGovern's paris guide, I did have better luck in the...

    Walking in the courtyard of the Louvre at night has to be one of the most romantic things a couple can do in one of the most romantic cities anywhere in the world. Tons and Tons of couples and people do it, so don't fear anything. Plenty of people around. Take your time and enjoy your in the city of lights !!!!!!

    Paris Nightlife

    One of my favorite well my only one of all the live theater shows in Paris, maybe the less sumptous but the most original for my Parisien tastes. Open every day except Mondays from 21h to 01h. a long history! It is in the upper part of Montmartre that is built in 1795 the building which will house the Lapin Agile, which becomes, around 1860, a...

    Paris Nightlife

    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...

I guess most people love going to Mandala Ray...

  • Rex Club

    Paris Nightlife

    This large club was empty at 1:00 am. It didn't open 'til Midnight and I was thinking we'd found the wrong place to try to party. But, surely enough people started flocking in and by 2:00 am it was packed, but didn't really start to get really hopping 'til 3:00 am. I had read in Lonely Planet that clubs don't get going 'til 1 am and they weren't...

    If you are planning to visit Moulin Rouge whilst in Paris - book in advance! We made the mistake of not booking and were turned away because the show was sold out.

    Because I’m a long-time Oscar Wilde fan, I’d been dying to have drinks at L'Hôtel. I started off with an 18 euro Coupe de Champagne Rose (glass of pink champagne), ended up talking to a couple from South Carolina who also owned a home in N'awlins, and at their urging ended up drinking the entire bottle of champagne (they picked up the tab, wasn't...

    There was a really good ambience around the 'village.' I thoroughly enjoyed the bars there, and we even went to see Buffalo Bill's Wild West Dinner Show which was great!

    After partying in "Le Cab" we decided to have a a few more drinks at a casual place, so we headed to the Marais and found the Lizard Lounge.

As soon as you walk in the door you'll be so pleasantly surprised to find out just how large this place...
