Champs-Élysées - 8eme, Paris –
Located under the historic Pont Alexandre III bridge and housed in a former boating club, Showcase is a popular club whose vaulted ceilings and natural stone arches – former boat hangars – create a unique space with incredible acoustics.
Pre-show groups of anonymous rockers and music lovers gather to chat on the Pont before passing through the ornamental gate and making their way along old stone walls to multiple rectangular bars, all lit up by large arrays of psychedelic lights.
Comfy seating areas with cushy blue booths and tufted leather sofas – to say nothing of the stunning views of the Seine and that little tower everyone’s talking about – lend an air of exclusivity to Showcase, but the overall vibe is casually cool and the clientele are clearly here to give full attention to the ever-changing line-up of international DJs.
With its diverse DJ lineup, Showcase attracts people from all over Paris, whether they’re in the mood for no-name spinners looking for a break or big name mix-masters known the world over – or just want to get sweaty under a bridge.
Varies depending on the DJ, but mostly music-lovers, early to mid-20s.
DJs spin on Fridays and Saturdays.
Cover charge €10. Beer €5+, wine €7+, cocktails €12+.
