Paris is known as the City of Light, but it might as well be called the City of Night considering the assortment of Paris nightlife areas. Tons of beautiful blocks in this town offer rows of venues that keep the party going late into the night, from budget-friendly student bars to collections of some of the priciest clubs in Europe.
It’s certainly true that the broad, tree-lined sidewalks, bustling outdoor cafés, glittering architecture, and important historical sites along Avenue des Champs-Élysées are packed with tourists by day, but this self-proclaimed (and hardly argued) “most beautiful avenue in the world” is also home to several high-end clubs that attract young and stylish Parisians, international jet-setters, and socialites into their sultry embrace.
Oberkampf is another nightlife area in Paris known for drawing a trendy crowd, though it’s hardly as exclusive (and often overcrowded), while Place Vendome and Faubourg St.-Honoré are perhaps the best spots in town to hang with people who believe money is no object.
On the other end of the spectrum is Rue de la Huchette, a narrow pedestrian passageway – one of the oldest streets on the Left Bank – full of eateries and bars that often celebrate shared Happy Hours perfect for a good old-fashioned pub crawl. Rue de Lappe in the heart of the Bastille, meanwhile, is a short, but vibrant street with dozens of bars and restaurants that attract locals, expats, and students alike.
Ah Paris, so much to see, so much to do, and so many great nightlife areas to explore.
