Boudoirs with dancing in Paris

These lounge bars have dance floors or concerts.

Le Carmen, Paris

At these small venues, the atmosphere is often electric. Paris has several boudoirs with dancing: the bar is often situated on the ground floor and the dance floor in the cellar.

Le Carmen is one such famous place housed in a former private 19th century mansion house. Customers sip cocktails in the wood-panelled lounges and dance whenever the mood takes them to the sound of DJ music or live musicians.

Hip cocktail bars turn into clubs late at night at the weekend, the Prescription Cocktail Club rue Mazarine or even the Expérimental Cocktail Club, in the 2nd arrondissement, packed on Friday and Saturday evenings.
