This month we’re giving away two Eurostar tickets for the ultimate shopping Traincation. To coincide with this competition, we thought we’d make some Paris guides to get you in the mood. This, week we bring you our best places to get your groove on…
For the drinks – Barrio Latino (Buddha Bar)
46 Rue du Faubourg, St Antoine 75011
Barrio Latino is the perfect place to have a few drinks and a quiet dance if you fancy it. The bar closes at 2am, so is great if you don’t want a really late night, but can’t stand the thought of going to bed early. The cocktails are superb, and reasonably priced too. Our favourite thing about this club is the velvet ceilings, making you feel properly immersed in vintage Paris style.
For the dancing – Rex Club
5, bd Poissonnière, Bonne-Nouvelle, 75002
Rex Club has been open since the ’80s and has had an array of top DJs spinning the decks across the years. Get ready for a mix of pumping house, techno beats, reggae, funk, hip-hop and rock, depending on the DJ. Get there early to avoid big queues, but remember the party doesn’t end until 7am so stay hydrated.
For the music – Truskel
12, rue Feydeau 75002 Paris
If the indie scene is more your thing, then Truskel is the place for you. We love the laid back vibe here, with there’s no entry charge and no dress code either. Have a dance, have a drink or just stare at all the cool people is the latest French fashions.
