Best Paris nightlife
Everyone knows about the French capital’s greatest monuments, the most picturesque squares and districts, but one of the city’s lesser-known but no less interesting aspects is its nightlife.
What are the not-to-be-missed venues near the Starhotels Castille in Paris?
Start with a dinner at Cristal Room Baccarat: in old-fashioned atmosphere, book a table in The Salon Rose or on the elegant terrace and let Michelin-starred Chef Guy Martin pamper you (11 Place des États-Unis).
Located on the last floor of Maison Kenzo’s headquarters is Kong restaurant: the walls are beautiful large windows forming a huge transparent dome with view of the Pont Neuf and the Seine. Interiors designed by Philippe Starck, French cuisine with Japanese influence (1 Rue du Pont Neuf).
Travel back in time with us: we are in the Belle Epoque, at Le Train Blue, a gourmet restaurant housed in the Gare de Lyon (Place Louis Armand).
For an after-dinner drink choose Candelaria in Rue de Saintonge, a taqueria and bar or the club at 142 Rue de Montmartre with film director David Lynch-style atmosphere. The Silencio offers a rich program of events, concerts, films and performances during the day and in the evening it becomes one of the city’s most exclusive nightclubs open till dawn.
Stop for a drink in the heart of Saint-Michel at Urgence Bar at 45 Rue Monsieur le Prince or at the trendy nightclub beneath the Eiffel Tower, Baazar Club (25, Avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie).
Just steps away from Avenue des Champs Elysées, red velvet furniture, vodka and caviar, a typical Russian atmosphere and burlesque shows at Chez Raspoutine (58 Rue de Bassano).
And to top the night off, Le Baron, a small gem and a benchmark in the Parisian fashion world (6 Avenue Marceau).
