Party Earth Review The old adage says never judge a book by its cover, and patrons would certainly be missing out if they judged The Highlander by its unimpressive façade. Tucked away in a side alley behind a medieval archway, the venue is marked only by a discreet sign – but inside is a welcoming, low-key, and authentic Scottish bar with ... read full review of The Highlander
French Restaurant / Lounge
Party Earth Review To the unsuspecting observer, Lounge Royal Restaurant looks like just another chic eatery – not exactly a scarcity on the blocks that surround the Arc de Triomphe – but this haughty hangout is also home to a cave-like subterranean lounge that attracts a trendy weekend party crowd. The chill daytime scene finds groups of ... more
Party Earth Review Whether or not Drôle d'Endroit Pour Une Rencontre really is – as its name suggests – “a strange place to meet” is a matter of opinion, but few people would argue that it isn’t a quirky French spin on the New York diner. The place definitely looks like a diner with its stark white-tile walls dotted with Big Apple photos ... more
Party Earth Review Almost lost in the bustling bars of Les Halles is Le Pin Up, a bright little hangout that attracts a continuous stream of stylish creatives, fashionistas, and hip neighborhood regulars. A sparse but pleasant décor of whitewashed walls, retro 50s wallpaper, ornate mirrors, and a beaded curtain creates a fun and funky environment ... more
Party Earth Review The Moose, Parisian home to Moosehead beer, imported rye, and lots of North American sports, couldn’t be any more Canadian if it had a chandelier made out of moose antlers. Actually…it does have a chandelier made out of moose antlers. Upon entry, patrons are met with a long room whose bar runs the ... read full review of The Moose
Party Earth Review The intimate Le Petit Fer à Cheval (“The Little Iron Horse”) has managed to create one of the best venues for conversation in all of Paris, mainly because the place is so tiny that patrons can’t help but get up close and personal with everyone around. The casual, chic atmosphere is supported by a disjointed décor largely ... more
Party Earth Review Situated right by the Les Halles shopping center, L’Autobus Impérial is an elegant and welcoming bar and restaurant perfect for unwinding over cocktails after a day of shopping at Benetton and H&M. Intricate screens, crystal chandeliers, candelabra, and closely clustered café tables and tufted chairs give the place a slightly ... more
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
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.
