    La Champmeslé - Gay Bar in Paris.

    Party Earth Review A lot has changed for the gay Parisian community since La Champmeslé first opened in 1979, but this popular lesbian bar has never loosened its ties to the movement, and consistently hosts exhibits, musical acts, and LGBT-themed shows. The deep violet but otherwise unassuming façade barely hints at the venue’s proclivities ... more

    Le Violon Dingue - Bar | Club in Paris.

    Party Earth Review Something of an institution for American study-abroad students in Paris, Le Violon Dingue (The Mad Violin) is an energetic bar decorated entirely in US sports memorabilia that does double duty as a bumping little club as the night wears on. The ground floor offers up a pretty standard pub vibe, with young sports lovers ... more

    Le Bazar Egyptien - Bar | Bazaar | Restaurant in Paris.

    Party Earth Review A captivating little spot to escape the typical French bar scene, Le Bazar Egyptien is a casual, international drinking den and restaurant with a completely authentic feel – from the food to the limestone walls right down to the costumes of the wait staff. Adding to the bar’s genuine feel is the bazaar just inside the entrance ... more

    L'Alimentation Générale - Bar | Club | Live Music Venue in Paris.

    Party Earth Review A far cry from the literal translation of its name – “the general food store” – L'Alimentation Générale welcomes a diverse mix of music lovers looking for an eclectic mash-up of DJs and live performers. An audience of chill students and hip intellectuals promises a calm midweek vibe, as patrons perch at the scattered picnic ... more

    Sans Gêne - Bar | Restaurant in Paris.

    Party Earth Review A cozy neighborhood favorite for denizens of the 17th, Sans Gêne (“shameless”) is a colorful little restaurant where friends can chat and recharge for the day or night ahead. Tables on the sidewalk terrace – which make for a nice spot to enjoy a morning coffee and croissant – extend ... more

    La Fourmi - Bar | Café in Paris.

    Party Earth Review The name La Fourmi (The Ant) suits this bar and café well, an unassuming, hipster hotspot that passersby could easily miss amid sex shop-riddled Pigalle’s larger distractions. Very much a local’s scene where artists and music lovers gather for drinks, the venue draws its eclectic crowd from the surrounding area, which ... more

Ooh lala, Paris got syle! And this is definitely evident at the chic clubs on Rivoli and the dance floors of the Champs-Élysées. In fact, the bars and clubs in Paris cater to international celebrities, models, and jet-setters to create a highly exclusive nightlife scene.

Besides the larger upscale bars and clubs, there are many smaller but equally seductive boutique bars and luxurious lounges that provide a sexy yet laid-back atmosphere. However this shouldn’t imply Parisians can’t be casual; as such exclusivity hardly defines Paris’ elaborate nightlife options.

The hipster set floods the various electronic and break-beat clubs where DJs and dancing are the focal points, bohemians and artists gather at the smoky bars that populate the outskirts of town, while many expats, university students, travelers, and those simply in need of a relaxed evening fill the array of causal Paris bars and pubs, which often feature English-speaking staffs and patrons.
