Fri 19 Sep 2014
Yes, summer is coming to an end. It’s time to dive back into sizzling hot nightclubs in Paris. If you still haven’t yet experienced Paris nightlife, read it and weep. Or as we prefer to say, read and then dance!

Cabaret Sauvage is the next pearl of Paris’ nightlife worth mentioning. An artistic venue, which in this case means a full calendar of art, live shows and club nights. When you’re inside Cabaret Sauvage, you’d swear you were in a circus tent. This is something you must experience personally. Perhaps on Friday 19th and/or Saturday 20th of September, with ME.022 Part 1 and Part 2? Pure techno and minimal, brought to you by great names such as Ricardo Villalobos, Ben Klock, Steffi and Marcel Fengler this will be a night to remember.
Rex Club in the 2nd
Rex Club is holy ground in Paris when it comes to electronic dance music. French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier founded this club in 1992. A lot of great names within the industry have found their way to this House music mecca. Rex Club delivers high quality electronic music with fabulous sound and is no place to lounge. Dancing is the only recipe and we think you should taste their version on Saturday September 20th, when French label My Love Is Underground is hosting its own event. Expect House and Deep House, with that real 90’s feel.
YOYO at the Palais du Tokyois a contemporary, cultural paradise. Housed in an old Parisian building, a mix of cultural activities are combined in this beautiful venue. YOYO – Palais de Tokyo is a concert hall, but also a club with one hell of a line up. On Friday September 26th, attend Haïku Loves Mule Musiq with Henrik Schwarz and Prins Thomas for great house and techno music in a spacious venue.
You can lounge at Badaboum, but only if you want to. This somewhat alternative venue has a food & cocktail bar, the live club and a “bachelor pad” hidden upstairs. Of course the live club is for dancing to the beats of great DJs. The average age of the hip Parisian crowd at Badaboum is above 23. The club has stellar lighting design, including an eye-catching light bar construction on the ceiling. Try this club on Saturday September 27th, a night featuring appearances by Juan Maclean & label friends Neet and Chichi. Maclean loves House and Nu-Disco, with Detroit and Chicago origins.
Head out and dance the night away, no excuses!
