Whether opera or jazz is more your style, Paris has some of the best opera houses and most legendary jazz cellars in the world. The French, with their good taste, have been devotees of jazz, this American original, as soon as it was invented.
Paris is a city as sophisticated as they come. And her nightlife is no exception. Choices are an embarrassment of riches and will have you teetering between a cocktail cruise along the River Seine with the twinkling Eiffel Tower as your backdrop, or a cabaret where a bevy of beauties whoop it up while they do the French can-can kicking their stockinged legs high up in the air.
Concerts featuring international stars, musicals straight from Broadway (sung in French!), nighttime art exhibitions and gallery showings…all yours for the asking. Then there’s always the cocktail bars and dance clubs that draw a bustling crowd ready to share the good company of friends and beautiful strangers. For those who love French cinema, summertime offers outdoor public screenings around the city in addition to the hundreds of arthouse and multiplex venues with the newest Hollywood releases and even museums and the Cinémathèque française that regularly screen classics and retrospectives.
