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.
