Paris is reputed to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and its charms are not exaggerated. The streets are replete with spectacular buildings, many of which are filled with artistic masterpieces; whether it’s the Louvre with its Mona Lisa, or l’Orangerie with its stunning exhibit of Claude Monet's Nymphéas. The ‘City of Light’, however, is also known for coming to life as the sun sets, as its nightlife includes a range of world-class restaurants, delicious bistros, trendy cocktail bars, and hopping dance-clubs.
Those wanting to get the most out of the Parisian nightlife should be sure to book their hotel in the 18th arrondissement or the Latin Quarter, where they’ll discover a number of great music halls, bars, clubs, cafés, and cabarets, featuring plenty of live music and other fun performances.
Visit the Famous and Historic Moulin Rouge Cabaret
Perhaps the most famous evening attraction is the celebrated Moulin Rouge. The original building was opened in 1889, and though it burned down in 1915, its replacement has continued to be a staple in Parisian culture. More of a tourist attraction today than a local hang-out, the Moulin Rouge offers musical dance and entertainment amongst its atmospheric and romantic fin-de-siècle décor.
