The top go to nightclubs in Paris

If you’re looking for really interesting and ultra-exclusive clubs that are routinely visited by more than a few Hollywood traits, Paris is the best place to be. Parisian clubs are filled, all year long, with fashion's biggest names: Kendall Jenner, Jaden Smith, ASAP Rocky, Willy Cartier, Gigi and Bella Hadid to name a few. Their main go-to spots are usually L’Arc, Titty Twister and Cartel, all clubs on side streets of the Champs Elysees. Each club is very versatile, attracting a diverse clientele.

L’arc is an overpriced nightclub, frequently visited mostly by older men and models. You will see a lot of people that travel to Paris from the Gulf region and Russia, whose main objective is to spend an obscene amount of money on tables and Champagne. During fashion week, several celebrity-filled parties take place here. These parties attract a unique and more fashionable crowd as compared to the usual people, dressed like flashy high class prostitutes- high heels and short tight dresses.

Titty Twister and Cartel, attract similar customers, which are the artist of Parisian life. Their style is more avant-garde and grunge. The men who club here all follow the same street wear look. Titty Twister's name is inspired by a scene directly out of "From Dusk 'Til Dawn," a Quentin Tarantino film. The smoking room, with its big Bison head hanging on the wall, punching machine and the pinball machines arcade-like area, next to the pool table, attracts all the cool sneaker-wearing street stylers. It is more of a Rock-N-Roll club and bar rather than the snob atmosphere witnessed at clubs like L’arc.

The 8th arrondissement is a special place for numerous nightclubs and bars condensed in a small area - from the Champs Elysees to the Place de l'Étoile. The ambiance and strict dress code allows for little creativity and becomes boring after a short while. The girls must be pretty, wearing short and tight dresses and the guys must know someone inside, have a table or wear expensive clothes. Cartel is the new place to be for the night birds. The people are trendy and you'll find celebrities and golden girls during fashion week. As soon as you enter you feel the vibe. You come face-to-face in front of a prison cage, with candles dripping wax that surround a statue of the Virgin Mary. Enormous crosses are painted in red on the walls, with crosses on the ceiling and scratches on the wall.
