What better way to warm your heart and mind than to put together a small team of friends to go dancing all night long ? Paris is a party ! But did you know that new nightlife venues have opened, when mythical clubs have offered a beauty to entertain the night owls in a crazy setting and an atmosphere that always feels good? We put on our sequined dress and our pretty shoes to test #InRealLife the addresses that matter today. Lap.
For who ? Singles in search of meetings and groups of girlfriends come to jiggle.
The place ? Hidden in the basement of the Hôtel Rochechouart , the Mikado is accessed on the left as you enter. A former clandestine gambling den , a veritable institution of Parisian nightlife in the 60s and 80s, the club has given itself an overly chic facelift with Japanese accents with lanterns and wooden panels, in an Art Deco decor worthy of the 1920s where you can slumps on beautiful golden velvet sofas between two flirting sessions.
The atmosphere ? Handsome guys and beautiful girls gathered in a cool way in a superb place: we love it. With the central bar and the DJ corner at the entrance, the whole assembly mixes and mixes in a chill and festive atmosphere particularly conducive to meeting .
The music ? With DJ John Carril at the DA, the musical program could only be up to par, offering the ultimate in electro sets that really make you dance.
À la carte: ask the (cute) bartender for an ultra-fresh Mikado (gin, verbena, granny smith, dry curaçao, egg white, €14), a Cabaret (vodka, passion fruit, coffee, champagne, €17) or a well-beaten Moscow Mule (€13).
Mikado Dancing , 55 boulevard de Rochechouart, Paris 9th, open Thursday to Saturday from 8:30 p.m. to 3 a.m.
For who ? Groups of girlfriends and their gay boyfriends .
The place ? A very beautiful club planted in the middle of Saint-Germain-des-Prés next to the Alcazar , with an almost labyrinthine construction where you go up and down the stairs to the dance floor , very large, with nooks and crannies under the stone arches sheltering large velvet banquettes and the DJ decks installed right in the middle for everyone to enjoy. Top: the XXL smoking room with disco balls , large sofa and good ventilation to settle down and p(v)pot.
The atmosphere ? LGBT-friendly , you will probably come across moths from all walks of life at Pamela 's who have come to play dancefloor princesses in an ultra-feel good atmosphere. Flirting is neither an objective, nor completely excluded! We especially enjoy the good music and the happenings with drag queens , without forgetting the pole dance bar to test his best moves.
The music ? Disco house , dancing with your arms in the air.
À la carte: from 8 p.m. to midnight, before the club puts on its nightwear, the bar offers an absolutely divine cocktail menu to get you in the mood.

Pamela , 62 rue Mazarine, Paris 6th open Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Paris - New York at Bonnie's
For who ? The addicts of the Paris Society atmosphere .
The place ? Perched at the top of the 5-star SO/Paris just above the eponymous restaurant Bonnie, you can also access it from the 16th floor. Of course, the bay windows offer a crazy panoramic view of all of Paris, worthy of the skylines of New York and Hong Kong . We meet all the fashion fauna there during fashion week (in particular the Balmain team , including Olivier Rousteing , and Patou , whose DA Guillaume Henry designed the uniforms for the hotel staff) and the cream of Parisian partygoers, regulars at the Silencio and Rasputin .
The atmosphere ? A good-natured spirit that agitates the beautiful people in search of extraordinary places and gathers in large tables with a lot of bubbles to drink and network. Be careful to take care of your appearance: the selection at the entrance is (necessarily) difficult... Better still: succeed in being on the list.
The music ? Electro-disco hits from the 60s and 70s and music that we like to sing gracefully with our arms raised in this unique setting in Paris.
On the menu: Long Island , Sex On The Beach (€20), classic cocktails (€15) but above all champagne to make flow (€280 a bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial).
Bonnie , SO/PARIS HOTEL, 10 rue Agrippa d'Aubigné, Paris 4th, open Thursday to Saturday from 10:30 p.m. to 3 a.m.
For who ? The purists of the Pigalle fiestas where you roll sulphurous shovels, without pressure.
The place ? We no longer need to introduce Chez Moune , a Mecca in Pigalle known as the headquarters of Parisian lesbians , for having been the first cabaret in Europe open only to women under the leadership of Monique Carton , aka Moune. Taken over by the kings of the night Daynight ( Chez Mila , Azur , Aphrodizia …) and the group that owns the Monkey Pigalle and the Yagõ , Chez Moune is adorned with leopard, red and neon with prank messages ( kidney games, games villains …).
The atmosphere ? Always bankable for the after-show fashion crowd, this haunt of cool has kept its old clientele by opening up to a boosted new gen ready to give in to the effervescence of a scoundrel neighborhood, without complex.
The music ? Manuela Morales López (ex - Mademoiselle Mouche ) signs an eclectic program where disco hits follow one another between two hip hop or house classics.
À la carte: signature cocktails with evocative names such as Cara (gin, Saint Germain, lime, basil, cucumber, lime), Emmanuelle (mezcal, spicy orange, ginger beer) or Adèle (vanilla rum, lime, passion fruit) , €15.
Chez Moune , 54 rue Jean-Baptiste Pigalle, Paris 9th, open Wednesday to Sunday from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.
