Palais Garnier / Grands Boulevards

Somebody told all the tourists to go here for nightlife. We’re not sure who it was, but it certainly wasn’t us. The effect is as expected—bars catering to tourists. If you flew all the way to Paris to visit a wax museum or a Hard Rock Cafe, that’s on you. Don’t blame us for wasting your time staring at wax figures of Mbapé and Johnny Halliday. Instead, keep it real by wandering around the covered passages, where the best restaurants in the neighborhood can be found, like café Valentin
