About Paris, France Nightlife
It’s not for nothing that Paris is called the City of Light. It’s a city you’ll find lit up every hour of the night. As soon as the sun sets, even the Eiffel Tower starts twinkling, with its sparkling LED lights, at the top of each hour.(P.S. there’s a champagne bar up at the very top of the Tour Eiffel. Just sayin’). Paris’s best nighttime venues are often hidden behind austere façades or tucked into the courtyards and anterooms of flashy establishments. It’s worth seeking them out as you’ll find that feeling of being on the in akin to being a bonafide Parisian, if just for a night. This is an all-hours town. It’s well within reason to take in a show at 9, dine après-theatre at midnight, then hit the bars or nightclubs from 1 or 2 a.m. until well past sunrise. Once a year the city even formally celebrates an all-nighter called Nuit Blanche during which the museums are open dusk ‘til dawn and offer free entry. And if you’re ever lucky enough to be in Paris on Bastille Day or New Year’s Eve, the fireworks and the street parties are free, for everyone, all night long.
