Nightlife in Paris
Parisians like to party and party hard! So going out at nightime is one of the best things to do in Paris! You’ll find every conceivable sort of club, bar and disco in this city and many will go on into the early hours. If you like, you could take in a big show at one of the major tourist spots like the Moulin Rouge but expect to pay heavily for the privilege. Withlocals Parisian guides will have their own spots where the food and entertainment is superb and prices sensible. Typically, many nights out in Paris start with a restaurant meal then move on to bars, clubs and discos afterwards – though many restaurants also provide live music as you eat.
Unlike in some cities, Paris nightspots tend to be populated with largely very well behaved people and excessive drinking and associated issues are rare compared to many other capitals. Generally, Parisian venues are not as ‘hard edge’, ‘controversial’ and excessive, as those in say London but are instead more refined. The really big nights out are, predictably, Friday and Saturday, though Thursday night is also very lively with the many students who are planning to return home on Friday evening. Local tours will make sure you find those venues that most tourists will just never see or even hear of!
