The bars mostly close around 2am, but many of the clubs in Paris keep the nightlife scene going well into the next day, and cater to everything from glitzy fashion hounds to penny pinching students.
It is the City of Light, after all, and Paris clubs light up the night all over town. Jet-setters and glam socialites check into the glorious clubs in Rivoli and the exclusive nightclubs along the Champs-Élysées, while everybody can find a place to suit their needs and styles in the northeastern districts – especially in Ménilmontant, Belleville and Canal St-Martin where everything from jazz clubs to blues clubs to sex clubs sprout up like weeds.
The Bastille clubs are also always hopping with world-renowned DJs, but the coolest thing about clubs in Paris may be the fact that so many of them are built inside amazing historic buildings. Bagatelle, for example, was originally a hunting lodge frequented by Marie Antoinette, and now plays host to amazing annual parties like Eurotrash Disney.
The clubs in Paris are a feast for the eyes as much as the ears, from ultra-private hotspots where patrons practically need to be on a first-name basis with God to get in to crazy circus-styled dance clubs with acrobats and little people flying through the air.
