The Scene

Located in edgy Pigalle, Le Divan du Monde is a uniquely French music club with a convivial ambiance and bustling with colorful characters, good music, and swinging dance moves.

Located in edgy Pigalle, Le Divan du Monde is a uniquely French music club with a convivial ambiance and bustling with colorful characters, good music, and swinging dance moves.

One of the city’s oldest clubs, the two-level space consists of a stage, dance floor, and bar on the first floor and additional tables and seating upstairs, all decked out in an updated gothic aesthetic featuring a dark red-and-black décor.

The club’s eclectic roster of performers and events, which includes everything from indie and rock bands to poetry slams, attracts an urban clientele of hipsters and alternative types.

On most nights, live performers entertain patrons earlier in the evening, while after 11pm, the scene invariably transforms from concert hall to night club, with a DJ spinning tunes for the rambunctious crowd on the dance floor.

Known for its diversity, Le Divan du Monde seems to provide a niche for everyone in a highly-charged environment.

Tip from Jonah:

If you’re feeling courageous, check the schedule for a poetry slam night and go ahead and take the mic! Everyone who performs gets a drink on the house.

  • Crowd

    Mix of local workers, alternative types, and students, early 20s to late 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Performers and musical styles from all over the world. Late-night music is always a mix of older American hits and popular French songs.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Happy Hour most nights 8–10pm.

  • Prices

    Performances €15–€35; Club free before 11pm when there are no concerts, €10 thereafter; no cover charge on Mondays. Drinks €5–€10.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Anything goes, from flip-flops to cocktail dresses.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Friday nights when the crowd is rowdy and the music is loud. The place is packed by 1am, so it’s best to arrive before 11pm when there are no lines and the drinks are cheaper.

90's Nights in Paris
Sarah B. Apr 2, 2013
In the heart of the stingy, sleazy, and scandalous 18th arrondissement of Pigalle in Paris lies the infamous club "Le Divan du Monde". After the first hour of the morning in Paris the youth comes out to play and you will find a line stretching from the club's entrance filing down la Rue des Martyrs. Although you may find this discouraging, do not fret because inside awaits a spectacle of excitement and energy. The club that once used to be a theater dating back to the early 19th century is now a host of nightlife and concerts for Parisians and foreigners from around the world. As you walk in you feel as if you are an actor in this life size play depicting the wild nightlife of Pigalle. Prepare to stay up all night dancing or as the Parisians like to call it prepare for "La Nuit Blanche". The atmosphere is contagious and hype. Yet there is an essence of nostalgia as you maneuver through the crowd towards the stage, due to the fact that infamous artists from the past used to flock here for entertainment. The two-floor club allows you to be a spectator from multiple views. Whether or not you are a shameless or shameful partier, you can choose which level your audience can watch you. The bottom floor provides access to the bar shoved to the side and crowded by customers shouting drink orders over "Whoop there it is!" to the bartender. The crowd made up of circles of friends shake and swing to the 90's music as it throbs through their bodies. If you are brave then venture to the stage where your epic moonwalk can be easily displayed for the onlookers on the second floor leaning against the railing calmly sipping their cocktails and enjoying the show. Regardless of the night you choose to boogie at Le Divan du Monde the pumping music will make anyone "Get Jiggy Wit It" Big Willie Style.
