Pleasant and sociable, bars are great places to unwind in after a day’s work or a day of leisure. Paris is no exception to this trend, with chic or offbeat establishments that never fail to amaze. The Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau has created a list of the most unusual bars in Paris.
The Crystal Lounge
is one of the capital’s newest trendy venues. Installed on the premises of a former oriental cabaret, the place has been fully renovated and now boasts a modern design and atmosphere over 650 m², inspired by that of some of the finest London clubs
. Chic and luxurious evenings from Thursday to Saturday are held on different themes with resident DJs
, fashion evenings
, etc. The venue is also available for private hire on other nights of the week for private or professional events.
Installed in a former art deco function room dating from 1923, Le Renard has retained the latter’s sumptuous volume which are shown off to great effect with Asian-style interior decoration and the play of light. This vast area which is both a restaurant and night bar offers an amazing atmosphere that mixes architectural splendor of the past with a program of contemporary music.
Le Petit Bain
is another spacious venue: open in summer on a terrace along the banks of the Seine
, housed on a huge 40-metre-long barge
and will extend over 630 m². This “floating cultural space”
which will serve as a bar, restaurant, concert hall and a place for art
, will be able to host up to 400 people for convivial evenings.
