Where to go out at night in Paris?

Exploring Paris during the day is beautiful, but you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see the City of Lights at night and from another point of view. Famed for its outstanding food, you will not be disappointed with the nightlife in Paris either. Keep reading for our tips on where to go for the best nightlife in Paris.

Watch the Eiffel Tower Lights

Nightlife in Paris begins with The Eiffel Tower, which lights up from sunset until 1:00 am. The Eiffel Tower light display is certainly not to be missed, and there are many great spots to take in the view. One of the best ways to take in the view is from another tall tower, the Montparnasse, where you can take a lift up to the observation deck, which is open all year round until 10:30 pm. Another great view of the Eiffel Tower lights is from along the Pont de Bir-Hakeim, or while enjoying a drink, in a cruise boat along the river Seine.

Take a Night Tour of Paris

A great way to enjoy the nightlife in Paris and avoid the crowd is by touring at night rather than during the day. There are lots of unique tours and experiences to choose from, including a Night Tour of Paris and Montmartre in a vintage Citroen 2CV car. You can enjoy some French Champagne while getting a private tour in a super relaxed way. The ultimate night tour in Paris is possibly a cruise along the River Seine followed by a live show at the Moulin Rouge, including the world-famous cabaret show and a glass of Champagne. For something a little more adventurous, take a night tour by Electric Bike, with the freedom to stop wherever you like and cruise around the city in the most chilled way.

Have a Drink in Paris

You can also take some very cool food and drink tours around Paris, such as the Paris Latin Quarter Tasting Tour or the Paris Ultimate Food Tour. Are you looking for the best nightlife in Paris for the perfect cocktail? Then stop by the Experimental Cocktail Club, which offers bold and original flavors. The local DJ plays every weekend. If you are looking for something a little different, then check out Candelaria, where you can enjoy tequila and some great Mexican food. It might sound a little cliché, but it is worth having a drink on one of the many rooftop bars during your stay in Paris, and one of the best is Le Perchoir Marais (at BVH Department Store) which can be enjoyed all year round and from which you can enjoy a drink with views of the Eiffel Tower.

Dancing in Paris

There is no better place to start a night out dancing in Paris than by taking in a show at the Moulin Rouge, the birthplace of the Can-Can. Next on the itinerary of the best nightlife in Paris is Le Caveau de la Huchette, located in the 5th arrondissement and not far from the Seine. This is a great spot if you are looking for the classical Parisian jazz club vibes, and once you are ready for the next spot, you are in the perfect location, in the heart of the Latin Quarter. But possibly the best place to either watch the pros or have a go at the tango yourself is the Quai Saint-Bernard. Take along a drink and enjoy the open-air dance floor. All ages are welcome, and you can find different forms of dance, from classical dance to hip hop.
