At the time of night when some of us are tucked up in bed, others are keeping Paris very much animated. Throughout the four corners of the capital, there’s plenty of choice for the nocturnal among you!

From prestigious jazz clubs to antiquated music halls, latino cafés, karaoke bars and musical bistros, for musical variety Paris has an embarrassment of riches.



Like to dance?

Choose your style among hip-hop, contemporary and classical ballet, salsa, the famous French cancan of the cabarets, or spend a feverish night clubbing on one of the hundreds of dance floors throughout the city. Maybe you’re more interested in rock, afro, techno, zouk, rap, or samba? Every kind of musical taste is represented in clubs, bars and halls around the capital. And if you’re still not sleepy when the sun comes up, you can always head for an “afters” and keep on dancing.

Below are the names of some well known night clubs and jazz clubs in the city. You will find a more comprehensive list of places to bring your friends or go alone on the website of the Paris Tourism Office.
