The Sanz brothers set up their bar-restaurant a stone’s throw from the Place de la Bastille, where for almost 20 years, SanZ SanS has hosted trendy evenings out that start with an aperitif and don’t slow down until dawn. The decor is chic and baroque with chairs covered in zebra-striped fabric, huge, glitzy moulded mirrors, a vast tinsel chandelier and red velvet from floor to ceiling and a menu offering classic, brasserie-style meals. At night, the bar turns into a soul, funk and hip hop club. No live bands, but there are DJs, with many coming from the famous radio station Generation 88.2. Admission is almost always free, making SanZ SanS a great place to dance after 2am.
