Cool Clubs in Paris?

Post by ringo kid f » Sat Jul 04, 2009 7:25 pm

Hi
I´m going to Paris in the end of July and would like to check out some nice clubs while I´m there.
It´s my first visit to the city of love and beside strolling around with my girlfriend, drinking wine in the park and meeting her shopping demands, I hope to find some electronic music too. Can anyone give some directions.....

Thanx

Hey
Thanx for responding.
I´m looking for a smaller venue, not big discos, where I can see some djing. Music electro, house or the new underground vibe of Paris.
Make any sense?

Another +1 for the rex club and the boat called batofar (not sure about the right spelling) a primarily deephouse place is very good. Be aware that nightlife in paris is ultra, ultra expensive.

thanx guys for the link and +1´s.
I´ll check out the RexClub in the weekend.
Do any of you know of any Thursday venue(somehow weekdays are better spend drunk!)please drop a line.

I heard the reputation of Paris been hard on your money, but it´s my first time and I´m kind prepared, that the cash will burn a hole in my pocket.
But thanks for the warning SubFunk(have to google that boat)..I hope you have a nice AbeBerlin meeting next Wednesday.

batofar is the correct spelling

I forgot tha place. it's ok, the sound isn't always good (but is sometimes), but the place is ok.

You might check what happen @ Glazart too. it is not a pure electro place, but there are some eletronic nights there

Are you currently in Paris ? On Monday, there will be a free Amon tobin DJ set @ Batofar. Well, not in the club, but next to it, to celebrate the club's 10th birthday

Rex Club is still the one to go to if you want to hear proper Techno and House music in a traditional club with an amazing soundsystem. They use about 70 speakers mounted every few meters on the ceiling facing downwards. Everything in there sounds as dry and pleasant as if you were in a studio with good midfield speakers next to you. Imagine the opposite of a reverb loaded warehouse sound. That's Rex Club.

Batofar and Social Club are still open too, although Social Club is getting a bit crowded with young students who get wasted like mad and don't care about the music. Batofar could be nicer to go now.

Nouveau Casino has some interesting evenings from time to time. Have a look here before you go to Paris: http://www.nouveaucasino.net/

A big bar with a dancefloor, proper soundsystem and good Parisian DJs from Thursdays to Saturdays is 4 Elements: http://www.bar4elements.com/
