A popular concert hall and club, Scopitone – which takes its name from a 1950s French video jukebox – is one of those rare velvet rope venues with an open-door policy, albeit with a cover charge, that attracts an international crowd of street-smart hipsters and fans of indie rock coming to see The Kooks and Junior Boys who have played in the past.

Marked by a drawing of a scopitone, the entrance leads patrons down to a dark, one-room concert space with a glam rock vibe, helped along by the blinding red and blue concert lighting and the series of 80s-style tube lights that outline the walls.

Exposed metal beams, musical objects, graffiti-covered walls, and a disco ball complete the spare décor, while a huge elevated stage surrounded by a wall of speakers ensures that the music is always the center of attention.

Despite the focus on the band, however, there’s plenty of grooving going on in the center dance floor, where posey scenesters gather to jam out before heading to the back bar to peruse the lengthy selection of cocktails or to the red leather couches to schmooze and take a breather.

Although concerts start and end rather early by Paris standards, the party doesn't end when the live music stops – Scopitone has its hipsters covered, and books some popular local DJs who keep the club vibe going until the wee hours.

Tip from Jonah:

If you go for the band, get there early. Some concerts begin as early 9pm, so Scopitone is a good first stop before hitting the late-night clubs.

  • Crowd

    Local hipsters, international students, and music fans, early 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Some well-known indie-rock bands like The Phenomenal Hand Clap Band and The Antlers as well as a number of local indie and electronic bands. DJs spin after the concerts.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    None.

  • Prices

    Cover charge €8+ for concerts and ranges by show, no cover charge 11pm+. Beer €4–€8, cocktails €12–€14, bottle service €150+, soft drinks €5.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    A bit of everything, including club attire, glam rock styling, button-downs with jeans, ironic t-shirts, vintage dresses, and gritty street style.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Concert dependent, but Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays are generally most popular. Bigger crowds come on Friday and Saturday nights because it’s the weekend.

  • Close By

    Le Tigre (5 Rue Molière) is a more exclusive music venue with a clientele of serious music connoisseurs and the in-crowd.
