Party Earth Review Andy Wahloo has taken its name (a modification of a North African phrase meaning “I have nothing”) to heart by creating a simple 70s-era space that caters to creative types and a lot of fashion industry folks. Comfortable, cool, but not too fancy, this dark and cozy bar features a décor of African ... read full review of Andy Wahloo
Party Earth Review Its gaping rotunda and centuries-old stone façade could easily be home to a museum – and in fact it used to be Louis XVI’s government customs house – but once through La Rotonde’s colonnaded entrance, patrons find themselves in a labyrinthine space that combines centuries of history with ... more
Party Earth Review Costumes can be cast aside at Le Général Beuret, a superhero-themed headquarters for budget-friendly fare. Playfully painted in large blue and red stripes – no doubt an homage to Spiderman, whose visage grips the ceiling – the venue isn’t subtle about its theme. Lampshades are covered ... more
Party Earth Review Rumors abound about Harry’s New York Bar, with regulars swearing it’s the oldest cocktail bar in Europe, and doing so with the kind of pronounced assuredness only a silver-foxed Frenchman can portend. The scuttlebutt is equally firm that the Bloody Mary, White Lady, and Sidecar were all invented behind the bar, much to ... more
Party Earth Review A quick walk from the historic marché d’Aligre street market and equally close to the Bastille party circuit, Le Baron Rouge harkens back to the wine bars of yesteryear when the vino was cheap and the conversation perpetually loud.

Creaking wooden floors, slanting tables, and spindly staircases transport the ... 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.
