We followed that up with drinks on the bar-packed Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, taking our time because there was no point in getting to our final stop, (6) Titty Twister, before 1 a.m. With its heady mix of tattooed rockers and decked-out dandies—and scads of models—our verdict is that this is the best club in Paris at the moment.
Silencio. with its atmosphere of gilded dark magic, this subterranean funhouse could hardly be more different from the Palais Royal. But both are the stuff that dreams are made of.
A modern classic, and a centerpiece of the ultra-fashionable Parisian social scene, especially at night. Jacques Garcia’s take on the opulent Napoleon III style—dark reds, deep velvets, plush Oriental carpeting, and an unmistakable house scent— makes this one of the sexiest rendezvous points anywhere. Especially after dark.
A speakeasy-style bar that kills it with the craft drinks. Try the minty, rum-based Very Old Cuban—and skip the weekend late crowds.
