Enjoy an evening out in the city that practically invented nightlife — Moulin Rouge, dining in a romantic restaurant, touring the city when it's all aglow, nighttime Seine River cruises, music in a jazz club… We absolutely love Paris at night. It's when the Eiffel Tower shows off its sparkling cloak and the Seine appears even more romantic as the city lights reflect off its waters.
Cabarets and spectacular music halls exploded in the Belle Epoque, when Paris nightlife really got underway. Quite a few of those places still exist today, although most have been superbly upgraded over the years. Moulin Rouge and Lapin Agile come to mind, both located in Montmartre.To make it easy to plan, and to guarantee a great evening,there are some superb evening packages that combine dinner with amazing activities, like a private illuminations tour, dinner at a recommended restaurant, a wine tasting event, a cocktail making class or a cabaret show. We review them all.
The Moulin Rouge opened its doors in 1889, the same year the Eiffel Tower was built.
Along with the Tower, it's still one of the hottest tickets in Paris.
Famous as the place where the Cancan was created, Moulin Rouge also achieved notoriety through the art of Parisian painter Toulouse-Lautrec, whose posters of the nightclub helped to spread its reputation.
Moulin Rouge is one of those places that everyone has to experience at least once in their lives.
A private driver meets you at your Paris address for a 2-hour illuminations tour of the City of Light.
Night is best time to see the city in its glory. It's also the best time to dine in the City of Gourmets, so you have a table reserved in a very special restaurant. Perhaps you end the evening at a jazz club near Notre Dame.
Our Paris Concierge has created some magical, memorable evenings.
We like to fill our evenings with memorable Parisian moments. So, we suggest combining dinner with one or two other activities.
It's all arranged for you by our Paris Concierge.
Before (or after) dining at a top Parisian bistro or restaurant (where your table is already reserved), how about a private wine tasting in a Latin Quarter wine bar? Or a cocktail making class? Perhaps a cabaret show or, one of our favorites, finish the night at a jazz club?
Private tours of Paris by night are a marvelous way to end a great day in the City of Light.
Night is when the buildings and monuments show off their best, sparkling with light. And speaking of sparkling, wait until you see the Eiffel Tower at night!
Make sure to read our reviews of private nighttime tours in luxurious automobiles. By the way, we always ask for champagne!
Compared to Moulin Rouge, Crazy Horse is a relative newcomer to the city's nightlife scene, opening in 1951.
From the beginning, this club was something different, combining burlesque with magic, dancing, and complicated choreography. Today Crazy Horse continues to integrate new acts, news ideas, and the latest trends in art and fashion.
Located on the most famous street in the world, Champs-Elysées, the Lido strives to out-spectacle them all!
There's been a cabaret here since the Belle Epoque at the end of the 19th century and, sixty-plus years after its re-creation as Lido Paris, it remains one of the most popular cabarets in the City of Nightlife. And the shows are indeed spectacular.
