La Palette

Palette1Old favourite, popular with Ecole des Beaux-Arts students and the local Galeristes. Quite a pick-up joint in the Summer, but fun. It is a 'site classé,' which means that the owner cannot change the way it looks.

La Luna

00c2ul23229784Feel like dancing 'till the wee hours of the morning? La Luna is a small salsa discoteque tucked away in a little street not far from Bastille. If you can make your way past the bouncer, be sure to buy yourself a drink before heading downstairs to the dance floor. Be prepared to salsa, tango, mambo, and sway your hips to the fast beats and rotating lights. Absolutely everything and everyone is drenched in "glow in the dark" lights... no need to worry about what you look like in the dark. By Pamela Price for I V Y Paris
