The bars might close at 2am, but a diverse club scene keeps Paris alive and well long into the night. And it isn’t all just upscale exclusivity where you need to be Scarlett Johansson to get past the door – although being Scarlett Johansson never hurts.
Clubs in Paris range from opulent to trendy to hard-hitting musical craziness, and below are our three favorites for every clubber’s taste.
1. Club Silencio. Club Silencio (see top photo) may be the most exclusive club in Paris, and for good reason. The members-only high-end nightclub in Les Halles is a total reflection of the eccentric mind of its creator, movie director David Lynch. The doors open to the “public” post midnight, and those lucky enough to make it past the long lines and the stringent eyes of the bouncers descend half-a-dozen flights into the unworldly club that doubles as an art exhibition of interior design at its finest.
The arched ceilings and enclosed walls in the extensive bunker makes the five distinct rooms feel like a gold-leafed maze of tunnels underneath a foreign planet. Talk to an Oscar-winning producer at the bar over cocktails and then make your way to the main stage where A-list DJs spin for the jetsetters looking to show some moves.
The booze flies off the shelf as the night heats up into a hot and sweaty dance party that’s always packed with fun-loving hipsters and travelers. This isn’t the place for a quiet night out, so put on your favorite shoes and zumba your way over to Favela Chic.
With bottle service lounge areas, a modish décor, and accessible door policy, Social Club is perfect for those looking for a trendy club with great music but without the snobbery.
Enjoy staying in a Paris timeshare rental, and do the club crawl of the best that Paris has to offer.
