Retro clubs and dancing halls in Paris

People dance here as they did in the past: these resolutely retro clubs have lost none of their charm

Le Memphis, Paris

In these clubs, there is a retro feel and an emphasis on ballroom dancing. Lovers of the Argentinean tango, waltz, cha-cha-cha, rumba and Madison know this place well. Some organize afternoon tea dances that are mostly attended by pensioners, like at Balajo in Bastille.

Near to Place de la République, Rétro Dancing is a popular place for couples dancing. Their daily afternoon tea dances attract a large crowd.

At Memphis, on the Grands Boulevards, afternoon tea and themed evening dances draw fans of disco, funk and Latin rhythms.

Chalet du Lac de Saint Mandé is a historic place where dances are regularly organized.

Some organizations like Le Colectivo Milonga offer dance lessons.

And for the gay community, Le Tango - La Boite à Frissons has a ballroom dancing event every Friday and Saturday between 10.30pm and midnight, followed by a mix of popular and contemporary music.
