If your main goal is to drink, meet a mysterious someone, dance all night with them, and never see them again, go clubbing. Magic is made within the walls of Parisian clubs when the music settles into your veins and the sea of people becomes one.
Manko Le Club
Every Friday and Saturday night at midnight, Manko turns into a club of writhing bodies and live music. It’s a place where elegance meets sex. You’ll show up for the live DJ set and leave with more than a few memories and stolen kisses.
Located down the block from Champs-Élysées, Raspoutine is a trendy and moody night club. Once fashioned as a Russian cabaret, it is classified as a historical monument and now brings the city of Paris live music and dancing. The night club is mostly red with golden accents, boasting red velvet furniture, cozy alcoves and passageways, and low golden lighting.
Located in the heart of Paris’ 1st arrondissement, Le Labo hosts a multitude of events going from day to night. Here you can enjoy anything; live music, an all-out glitzy drag show, and Karaoké. Friday nights boast a gay-friendly after work party (slash speed dating, if you will) where you can meet people from all walks of life.
