The first place on my list is one of the most well-known too! Located right underneath the Arc de Triomphe, it’s impossible to beat l’Arc’s view. Imagine dancing the night away in one of the most sought-after clubs in Paris. Now picture the decadent boulevards of Paris lit up before your eyes and the magnificent Arc de Triomphe shining in the distance. Mix it all together and you have yourself a dream come true. This is the atmosphere at l’Arc Paris!

Popular DJs play a mix of hiphop and house on the weekends, and draw pretty exclusive crowds. A serious hotspot during Paris fashion week, l’Arc is filled with international socialites in the off seasons. Definitely a spot to see and be seen.

Given the club’s exclusive status, getting in can be a challenge. The bouncers tend to be quite strict and they have a firm dress code. So bring out your most fashionable outfits and hope for the best.  If you want to ensure entry for a larger group you can book a table in advance on their website.

L’Arc is situated in proximity to several of Paris’s renowned landmarks. Enhance your experience by complementing your nightclub visit with a Paris landmarks tour, allowing you to explore more of the city’s iconic attractions.

Chez Raspoutine

Set in the famous clubbing area between the Arc de Triomphe and Avenue Montaigne, this is a legendary Parisian nightclub. At first glance, Chez Raspoutine looks like any other glitzy spot on our list of top 5 most luxurious Parisian nightclubs. But this club has quite the colorful past!

This place has been around since 1970. And during the early years, Chez Raspoutine was actually an upscale Russian bordello and cabaret! In the seventies, the club was popular with celebrities like Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot.

Since being transformed into a nightclub several years ago, Chez Raspoutine has become quite the hotspot. Today, Chez Raspoutine is one of the hottest nightclubs in Paris. Holding true to the original Russian style, the interior features exquisite red and gold furnishings. And the very Baroque-style decor and velvet alcoves give a nod to it’s racy past.  On any given night, Paris’ elite fill the dance floor and mingle at cozy tables. And from Thursday to Saturday, resident DJ’s pump heady electro music until 6 A.M. Since it’s open so late, the party doesn’t really get into full swing until around 2 in the morning. So this is definitely a place where you can truly dance the night away in Paris!

Entrance can be tough, the bouncers are extremely discerning. Your best bet is to call ahead and try to book a table. Or simply dress to impress and try your luck at the door, you never know!

Perhaps you’ve heard of the next spot on our list of the top 5 most luxurious Paris nightclubs. Almost everyone has heard of Silencio. In Paris, the club’s eclectic crowd and eccentric reputation precede it. Silencio is unique because it’s actually a members-only arts and cinema club in the early evening hours. But this legendary Parisian spot opens it’s doors to the (elite) public for clubbing at 11 pm.

Conceived from the imagination of David Lynch, this underground club is one of the most exclusive in all of Paris! Located in the middle of Paris’ hip 2nd arrondissement, this club draws a fashionable, artsy clientèle.  But what really sets this place apart? Silencio is literally under the streets of Paris! That’s right,  at Silencio, you’ll actually be dancing the night away in 700 square meters of Paris’ lively underbelly.

The intimate cavernous space is punctuated with chic lighting and minimalist decor, which help to play up the cool underground vibe. The entry hall opens into the the main room where you can find the dance floor. One of the things I love about Silencio is there’s music from all genres there. From DJs spinning experimental deep house to vintage old school hip-hop, Silencio has got it all. There’s even a photo gallery and a smoking room; for that old Paris artistic vibe. But no matter the night, the club is always populated by chic party goers.

Entry isn’t easy, but if you can manage to pull it off, you’re sure to have a night to remember. After all, it’s not every night you can party in one of the most luxurious Paris nightclubs!

Le Marta



Up next on our list of the most luxurious Paris nightclubs is Le Marta. Sharing a wall with luxury hotel Le Fouquet’s, Le Marta is truly set in the heart of the 8th arrondissement, among picturesque Parisian glitz and glamour. This luxurious speakeasy-turned club has actually been flying under the radar these last few years while it underwent extensive renovations. And I must say, the final result doesn’t disappoint. This classic spot came back with a bang in 2019!  Le Marta has once again become the place to spend a night out in Paris.

Le Marta is located on Avenue George V in the 8th arrondissement. This is known to be one of the most upscale Parisian avenues, home to some of the most prestigious shops and hotels in the city. Plus, the club is just a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysees. Amidst impressive Haussmannien façades is one the most luxurious Paris nightclubs! But be sure to look carefully. The entrance is actually hidden behind an antique bookshelf, which contributes to the club’s secretive, luxurious vibe.

Once inside, you’ll be treated to luxurious decor, candlelight and red velvet accents with upbeat music. It’s almost like taking a trip back in time to the Jazz age in Paris. Almost, because the music isn’t jazzy at all. But rather it features the latest chart-topping tracks. Le Marta is open until 3 A.M. so if you’re into a classic, sophisticated vibe and modern music.. what better place to dance the night away in Paris? This is it!

Le Piaf



Nestled in the glamorous confines of Paris’ 8th arrondissement is Le Piaf. You’ve probably noticed by now, but this area is pretty much the hotspot for upscale clubs in Paris! Perhaps the most glamorous spot on our list of the most luxurious Paris nightclubs is Le Piaf. If you’re wondering if the name is a nod to iconic parisienne singer, Edith Piaf, it’s actually completely unrelated! Fun fact: the club’s name comes from 19th century Parisian slang meaning “little songbird”.

During the early evening hours, Le Piaf is an upscale restaurant and bar. So this is a perfect option if you want to have a dinner or drinks out before going clubbing! Red velvet plays a central role, and gold accents and framed portraits adorn the walls. Classics like foie gras, truffled risotto and canapés are served up on vintage plates. Plus, their extensive wine and cocktail menu ensures you won’t leave thirsty. Come night, this luxurious Paris club is definitely known for drawing in the city’s best dressed night owls.

Head down the stairs in the back of the restaurant to the dance floor. This is where the partying takes place! For a cool, speakeasy-type feel, the room is again lined with velvet benches and covered with touches of gold and red. Elegant and sophisticated in terms of both decor and clientèle, the Piaf manages to exude a retro feel without being kitschy.

But what about the music? Well, a grand piano and a DJ booth are visible in the corner. But the music varies from day to day. At Le Piaf, fresh new artists fill the club on weeknights and more renowned DJs usually take the helm on weekends. But the genre ranges from jazzy to electro, so be sure to check the lineup online, in advance.

Les Bains-Douches

Up next on our list of luxurious Paris nightclubs is Les Bains Douches, a famed Parisian hotspot that first opened its doors in 1885, and has been refurbished and reopened as a luxury hotel inside a nightclub.  It is a 5-star Boutique Hotel, a neo-bistro with outdoor patios, a spa, a legendary bar, mythical nightlife, an avant-garde scene, and a want-it-all concept store that can be experienced both day and night.

Les Bains Douches, now a temple of Parisian nightlife, has become a famous site for parties, ceremonies, and, of course, inspirational music events in Paris. The music programming team at Les Bains is always on the hunt for fresh sounds from DJs, artists, and rock and pop bands.

A unique elixir to sustain the famed Club des Bains. The famous pool, Philippe Starck’s black and white checkerboard floor, and the lava stone bar, a stage for outstanding shows, concerts, and events, all pay vibrant respect to the club’s illustrious heritage. The doorman at the Club’s entry ensures that the atmosphere remains diversified. Les Bains Douches Club is a hot hangout for those that match the bill; being extremely creative, open to new experiences, and always looking for new ones.


VIP Room Paris is a well-known and renowned club in the France nightlife scene. The elegant decor and baroque furniture of the nightclub are well-known. This affluent nightclub is frequented by actresses, singers, models, and other well-known celebrities who come to listen to music played by the club’s resident DJs. It is both the most popular and the most elite hip-hop nightclub in the city.

People frequently come here to see guest performers or simply to savor the Italian delights at the Goia restaurant. Despite the difficulties in getting inside due to its growing popularity, clubbers continue to return to sample the VIP experience that only the VIP Room can provide.

The facility is sprawled across several stories, with different themes in each location, all of which are extravagantly lavish. The lower tier houses the dance floor and a few tables, as well as leather booths and glass-enclosed private booths. The stage in the back is quite visible, making it ideal for seeing the show when a DJ booth is set up there.

The upper tier has a wraparound balcony with views of the below tier and plenty of tables. There isn’t much space for dancing here, but the view is spectacular, and you’ll appreciate watching all the hard bodies dance to hip-hop beats in the attractive lighting.

Le Matignon

Located near the Champs-Élysées in Paris’s 8th arrondissement this nightclub immerses you in a world of luxury and elegance, surrounded by the most affluent people in the city. Because it is in the most affluent part of town, you can expect to encounter a lot of local and visiting celebrities, wealthy socialites, and high-class tourists.

By day, Matignon features an adjoining restaurant that serves outstanding French cuisine. The cuisine is, as expected, costly, but it is well worth the money. The restaurant can get very busy, so it is best to reserve ahead of time rather than just showing up when you want to.

The main club, which opens later in the evening, is located beneath the restaurant. Throughout the night, the venue has a respectable dance floor and amazing features. Depending on the night and the occasion, expect light shows, confetti, professional dancers, and so forth. The club plays a mix of French techno, international techno, and American remixes.

This nightclub is one of Paris’s largest venues and routinely features a variety of foreign DJs and producers as well as the city’s homegrown artists.

On weekends, music-crazed insomniacs go to this enormous venue in converted boat hangars to discover up-and-coming bands and dance till morning. This nightclub frequently showcases some of Paris’ most popular DJs. Music is always fresh and vibrant. This is the place to go if you want to discover new bands or DJs!

The Yoyo is a nightlife and events venue located in the center of the Palais de Tokyo, where the former auditoriums of the iconic French Cinémathèque previously stood. It is operated by Paris Icons.

It is torn between its extremely vibrant festive program (sound and visual experimentation, events, dance, electronic music) and its more corporate role of hosting a wide range of private functions (cocktail receptions, conferences, film screenings, private parties, fashion shows, conventions, product launches, plenary sessions, and much more). The minimalist concrete backdrop of the Yoyo makes it the ideal spot for Parisians to come and dance the night away.

La Belle Époque

As you are surely aware, there are numerous cabaret shows in Paris, La Belle Epoque is one of those places that offers an incredible night out in Paris with a cabaret show and a candlelit lunch, all of which are combined in a fantastic ambiance fun-filled evening with friends or family.

La Belle Epoque has been in operation for over 75 years and has earned a solid reputation for the quality of its music, shows, and choreography, as well as its meals and cozy settings.

Club 79

Club 79 is located directly on the Champs Elysées and appears to have picked up where the (previously fantastic) Queen club (now somewhat naff) left off. A diverse range of soirees is available, frequently including well-known worldwide DJs. Carl Craig, Kenny Larkin, Little LouieVega, Tiefschwarz, and Josh Wink are recent guests. Entrance is frequently no more expensive than that of other clubs (about around 15 euros).

If your weekend simply continues going, they also have a club night on Mondays that is free all night for Laydeez. The Club 79 appears to be ideal for a fun night of clubbing close to your hotel. It’s an extremely private club, therefore getting access is difficult. Make an effort to dress neatly and stylishly. Suits and pullovers are entirely acceptable for men.

Le Baron

Le Baron nightclub is one of the city’s sexiest hangouts. It will provide you with a unique, creative environment in which to unwind with your lover or friends, combining old-school boheme with new partying trends. This is not your typical rave environment or music.

The decor is one-of-a-kind. You’ll be transported to a red light party in a sophisticated club, surrounded by beautiful people dressed in appealing red lighting. The small candles and the occasional yellow or amber light lend much-needed warmth to the room, creating a romantic atmosphere.

The drink selection is very strong, with a focus on French wines of all sorts and vintages. Ask your bartender what drink they recommend for the night and follow their advice for a more enjoyable experience. In this venue, the music is mostly EDM and remixes; there isn’t much popular music or top 40s-style singles.

Zig Zag Club

The Zig Zag Club is a nightclub in the Champs Elysée Pavilion. It is a transient club that only operates on weekends and has primarily electronic music-oriented programming. With its great dimensions, Zig Zag can accommodate 1200 people and has a massive central dance floor and a spacious mezzanine.

Fun is a guarantee here since the club showcases local and international DJs, as well as a cutting-edge sound system that will keep the party going. This club has a really cheerful and vibrant environment, and it is ideal for going out with friends. This nightclub offers a large range of drinks; cocktails are a touch costly, but they are all quite tasty and expertly crafted. The club is open Fridays and Saturdays. They primarily play EDM on their music show.

The downstairs part of Zig Zag becomes quite full, and because it is a smoking area, it gets pretty smokey, therefore we recommend that you go out on the terrace or outside regularly. The club has a €15 entry fee and drinks start at €10.

Night club in Paris

So now you’ve read all about the top 5 most luxurious Paris nightclubs, and you’re ready for a night out in the city of light! But which place should you try first?
