The Social Club’s reputation for hosting the best DJs in the city, taking chances on new French indie bands, and offering the most diverse roster of musical genres has earned it an enthusiastic and devoted following in the Paris music scene.

A nondescript corner entrance leads fans down a set of shabby stairs into a dark underground area with a “retro-futuristic” look.

Black walls, black couches, and bright neon lighting running along the open duct work make up most of the décor, while the rest of the space is given over to a long bar, a dance floor, and a small stage and DJ area, where guest performers lay down their finest sounds.

Many of the featured local bands draw crowds of their own fan base, but regardless of who is playing, the hip young clientele is serious about music and ready to indulge on the dance floor or just soak up the tunes from the sidelines.

The space is fairly small and the doormen are vigilant about the capacity, so it’s always a good idea to arrive a bit early – but even when packed to the gills, Social Club maintains an easygoing vibe.

Paris Social Club

Best night out in Paris! Been wanting to attend this club for a long time and it definitely provided. Great DJ's/music and good crowd. Drink prices are a bit pricey but what good club isn't in Paris?
Mysteriously Effortless

"No effort, no entry," is typically the motto for any place after dark in France, yet the vide at Social Club is quite the contrary. The crowd is young, cool, and ready for a good time. The few times I have been to Social CLub have been incomparable. In terms of music, you will find anything from electro, minimal, and even you occasional take on a top 40 song. The venue itself will get you in the mood to stay up all night. With high ceiling, cool lighting tucked underneath a gorgeous historical bridge, it's like no "Midnight in Paris" Woody Allen has ever dreamed. Dace the night away and then sit in the lounge area and meet some of the most interesting travelers, students, etc that Paris Has to offer.
Funky line-up. Crazy clientele. Memorable evenings.

When the end of the week arrives and you have nothing planned but your entire body screams "PARTY TIME !", Social Club is the answer. Located in the very heart of Paris, the venue provides electro nights that could make Berlin's electro scene cry. Social Club doesn't house your average 90's rave atmosphere, it promises to make you sweat amongst Paris' stylish young crowd. And when I say young... you might be a little disappointed by the average age of people surrounding you. The boiling energy of people in their early 20's will probably overwhelm you in this place but cheap drinks (yes, 7€ a beer is cheap for a nightclub in Paris) and awesome music match for a fun and perfect combination. A major plus- the closest taxi station is a mere 3 minute walk away and surrounded by crêpe places that could save your body from a party hard death. If you get really lucky you might also have the chance to catch a monthly night by Marble, the french label ruled by Surkin, Para One and Bobmo known for inviting other international artists such as Basement Jaxxx and Just Blaze. Don't hesitate to try the special Marble shot, a homemade secret elixir that will blow your mouth away -sake lovers might even appreciate it.

This place is the favorite spot of all of our local DJs. If you like to groove on good jam...THIS is the place to be! Make sure to check-in your coats because the Social Club is only meant to rock the dance floor, and unfortunately the space is not that big. So you want to sweat it out for a reason. Are you a loyal member to the French-Electro-elite? Be ready to have a good time. Watch out for the after shows too. The artists you like often plan on playing DJ sets at the Social after their concerts. Plus, thanks to the room's capacity, you can be sure to stumble on some of the DJs performing that night!
