You don't have to spend your entire week's budget on one night out.

Do you want to have fun but be a little tight with budget? In Paris is can be a little hard finding a fun place to go with friends that doesn't break the bank. Here's five places definitely worth checking that are sure to afford you a great time. From Oberkamf, to right off the Champs, we went all over Paris to find your new favorite hot spots. 

1.  Le 114

This is my personal favorite in Paris. Le 114 is located in Oberkampf, a famous nightlife hotspot. While relatively small, the exciting atmosphere features cool guest DJs every weekend and a lot of locals looking to dance and drink.

2. L'Alimentation Générale
3 Rue Boyer-Barret, 75014 Paris

L'Alimentation Générale is also located in Oberkamf and a great place to go before or after visiting Le 114. If you want to dance to Parisian underground music, this is a must-go place. Take advantage of their happy hours for a few after-dinner drinks with friends.   

€5-10 cover for Friday and Saturday night concerts.
Happy Hours (Wednesday to Saturday) from 7pm - 9pm

3. Le Duplex
2 bis Avenue Foch, 75116 Paris

Le Duplex is one of the most well known clubs in Paris. This club's atmosphere is a delicate mix between fancy and casual. There are several rooms offering different kind of music. There is no specific dress code but just make sure to look neat. Avoid the sneakers or flip-flops for instance. Beware: Drinks can be expensive so make sure to prepare in advance if you're not looking to go broke.
