Formerly known as L’Alternative, Le Tigre is a small and exclusive music venue that draws a young crowd of twenty-something hipsters, groupies, and music snobs.
Rocker-styled patrons and fashionistas who make it past the door will find themselves in a cozy one-room space decked out in a baroque-inspired décor of red velvet walls, antique furnishings, and black candelabras that combine to create an intimate vibe.
Bathed in a deep crimson glow, guests gather at the long bar or dance beneath a tiny disco ball just in front of the DJ booth, while a more privileged set takes to the highly coveted seating area in the back to lounge on plush sofas and wingbacks as they chat over drinks.
On concert nights, the focus shifts to the miniscule stage where local indie bands play to a packed house of fans.
Music is definitely the raison d’être at Le Tigre, whose youthful scene, trendy patrons, and close quarters create a stylish atmosphere perfect for a night off the beaten path.
Local hipsters, scenesters, artsy types, international music aficionados, and club-goers, mostly 20s.
French indie bands and DJs spin a mix of rock, oldies, punk, and new wave nightly.
Beer €8, cocktails €15, shots €10, champagne €12/glass or €150–€550 /bottle, bottle service €150–€250, soft drinks €8.
Stylish mix of vintage and designer. Rocker looks and tattoos dominate.
Fridays and Saturdays for the biggest crowds, though some weekday shows are just as popular.
Just a hop, skip and jump away is Scopitone (5 Avenue de l'Opéra), another live music venue with a similar vibe and crowd.
