August Nightife

The myth that Paris is dead in August just doesn't want to die. And yes, there may be a few shops and offices closed, but if you're looking to have fun, there's no shortage of things to do. Especially after dark. This is the last week to enjoy Paris Plage and the open-air cinema at Parc de la Villette, but the clubs are still going strong. Here are just three sprinkled around Paris:

Fleche d'Or (102 bis, rue de Bagnolet, 20th) remains open all summer, with live indie rock bands and electro clubbing in the former train station. Free entry, 8pm-2am, restaurant until midnight. For the laid-back East Paris crowd.

Le Showcase (under the Pont Alexandre III, 8th) is one of the largest clubs, with Sous Le Pont soirées every Friday and Saturday night from 10pm, free entry until midnight, €10 after that (get there early, always huge lines). For the young bling bling crowd.

Chacha Club (47 rue Berger, 1st) is one of the newest Parisian hotspots, opened in July and packed every night since. Read the Naughty Paris review here. For the chic and sophisticated of all ages.
