Paris Nightlife - St-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter

Most of the Latin Quarter remains prime stomping ground for students, but is welcoming to any tourists and natives wanting a cheerily raucous night out. Rue de la Huchette is still a hive of activity, with tribes of all ages and backgrounds wandering its cobbles at night. Jazz club Caveau de la Huchette is a Parisian institution – go and join (or at least watch) clientele between the ages of 18 and 80 jiving in a basement with a revolutionary past.

Odéon and Mabillon attract a young, studenty crowd to the numerous bars, clubs and pubs, with partying going on late into the night. Check out Chez Georges, a tiny basement where dancing on tables becomes obligatory as the floor space diminishes over the course of the evening.

St-Germain-des-Prés itself has become one of the few Left Bank neighborhoods to attract the Gucci-clad stiletto wearers after dark – it might be a cliché, but a cocktail or two in Café de Flore or Les Deux Magots will be an experience to remember.
