Going out in Paris doesn't require a stop in at a speakeasy followed by a jazz jam at a world-renowned club featured in an Oscar-winning Hollywood film or some song-and-dance by a sultry chanteuse at a cabaret. But it can. It can be all those things, in fact, and much, much more.
Truth be told, going out in Paris is about as rich an experience as they come. The city is an adult playground without comparison, especially when you add the caveat of ‘adults with good taste.’ The thing to do is pack your evening with about as much as you can squeeze and handle. For example, start off low-key with aperitifs at the neighborhood café/ wine bar such as La Perle (which has a secret room you can rent for overnight stays called The Kiss Room) or Glou, an icon with a view directly onto the Picasso Museum. Follow that by dinner before your cabaret show at the fabulous La Nouvelle Seine - the Table du Bal is especially noteworthy for its succulent fare wafting from the kitchens.
Once the show is over, head out to a cocktail bar such as Le Klay or if you want to grow a bit of hair on your chest, check out the den-like speakeasy that exclusively houses whiskey, as in 900 different kinds. That can be found hidden inside another bar and is called Golden Promise. Round out the evening by taking in some jazz at the legendary Caveau de la Huchette. The swing dancers are as entertaining as the jazz players, to be sure. And if you haven’t yet seen La La Land, it's a must. Because this is where that fabulous Paris scene with the sublime Oscar-winning Emma Stone was filmed. A bientot, mes amis!
