A Paris institution, Rex Club has consistently attracted a dance crowd since the early 90s – and indeed the music and dance floor are the heart and soul of the venue, where beat-loving patrons enjoy a mix of powerful, funky sounds played by some of the hottest bands and DJs around.

The live techno, house, and hip-hop are absolutely insane, and patrons invade the dance floor in a tidal wave of bodies when the beats get pumping.

Aglow with classic concert lighting, the stage and dance floor in the back of the club are flanked by two small bars, while curving booths and small tables offer revelers a break – though they can be hard to come by when it gets too crowded. However, a few VIP tables provide high rollers with a place to relax with their pals and a bottle.

The young and somewhat grungy clientele is eager to dance and everyone in attendance is obviously into the late-night music scene.

An all-night party that runs till dawn, Rex Club is for people who like to mark the end of their night with the sunrise.

Just Eh

I don't mean to be harsh, but Rex is just not my favorite. The cover charge is way too expensive for the venue, which is decently sized but a little run-down and poorly decorated. And the music, oh the music. I can handle house music in certain settings: big clubs with excited crowds, the Techno Parade (which happens every fall in Paris - a must go!) and...well, that's about it. But in Rex, house music blares in a dark, grungy space with a small and often only half-filled dance floor. But my biggest turn-off was the clientele of Rex, which appeared to be the edgy high-school crowd -- so not the people I am trying to hang out with when I'm in Paris. So my recommendation for those who don't want to have their ears throbbing from listening to the same beats over and over and over again, and for those who don't want to party with high-schoolers, is to head to one of the many other great bars in the area, such as O'Sullivans or Cafe Oz.

As soon as you walk up to the line at Rex, you can tell it's a pretty popular place - though it was Saturday, you don't really expect clubs to be too crowded before at least 1am, especially a club known for it's dancing and music, but there was already a pretty good crowd by 12:45-1am. It's clearly pretty popular with the French, as I noticed that we were probably the only non-French there. The club is super well organized in my opinion, so that you can sit away from the dance floor if you want, and there are two separated bars. It was also super clean, with no broken glass or trash/cigarettes on the floor. The cover charge was 15 €, which is a bit steep in my opinion, but the price somewhat assures the super stylish yet casual partyers who were present. You can also buy a ticket in advance, for 12€, so if you know you're going I would definitely suggest this, as you can also pass by the queue. Mixed drinks were 9€ while shots were 5€, but while the shots are only 2cl of alcohol, the mixed drinks are 4cl, so in fact your getting a better deal by buying a mixed. I do suggest getting drinks beforehand though, as there can sometimes be a bit of a wait at the bar, especially once more people start arriving. As someone who typically loves House and Techno, I loved the music, but I had a friend in the group who wasn't as big of a fan - he complained that it got a bit repetitive. The crowd was energetic but also fairly polite, as there was very little pushing and people overtly falling over, something that is often hard to find on a super crowded dance floor. Two notes: I noticed pretty quickly the bouncers somewhat frowned when they heard part of our group speaking English. The bouncers only really talked with those of us in the group who spoke French, and it was very clear that we were not the usual clients. I would highly suggest having at least one or two members of your group who are capable of speaking French. In addition to this, I didn't get a great sense of people mingling outside of their individual friend groups, so perhaps it's not the best place to go to meet tons of singletons. Then again, we were mostly speaking English so if you do speak French, it might be a great opportunity to meet some young French. Overall, I thought it was a really fun time, and I'd really like to go back, perhaps in a smaller group and with a few other French speakers. Though it's a bit expensive, it's a really nice club with a great vibe and a trendy French crowd. Caution about the English speaking, and though I myself didn't see anyone turned away, I would definitely dress a bit on the more chic side (girls, heels are highly suggested).
