Dance The Night Away At These Posh Paris Clubs

If you're the type that likes to try out a few venues during a night-out, you'll want to check out some of the clubs listed here that are within walking distance of one another. Taxis can often be hard to find late at night in the city and the Métro stops running between from about 1am to 5am. The areas around the Champs-Elysées has clubs within close proximity of each other. For an exclusive grouping, you can check out Queen and Matignon, then head around the corner to Chez Raspoutine and once finished there walk the 10 minutes up the "most beautiful avenue in the world," toward the Arc de Triomphe where you'll find L'Arc, designed by none other than Lenny Kravitz, nestled on a side street. Many Parisiennes (that's the feminine version of the word) bring a pair of flats with them as they make their clubbing rounds. And, of course, you can always hop on a Velib' after your night out to get back home if the Métro isn't running yet.

Top DJs get the energy moving, and your fellow clubbers ensure that there's plenty to see along the way. To follow the beautiful people, give Wanderlust a try or check out Le Montana. Either way, 10Best will make sure you know the best places to dance in Paris.
