Chez Moune

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice
  • Free

Unlike the majority of Parisian nightclubs, Chez Moune offers free entry, so there’s always a big queue outside. The music here is eclectic and trendy with an emphasis on electro-rock: do not miss the underground label nights from the likes of Katapult and Meant Records and after-shows from groups like CocoRosie, LCD Soundsystem and Anoraak. In this basement hangout there’s a great atmosphere all the way through until the morning after and the clientele is mainly 20-something

Also known as ‘La Cantine des Ginettes Armées’ or the armed girls’ canteen, Le Troisième Lieu is a lesbian paradise, full of open minded girls on a mission to let themselves go. The house speciality: a pitcher of honey-flavoured Fargo beer. You can also scarf a meal here, though more to satisfy desperate hunger than to benefit from any Parisian gastronomy. In the evenings, lady DJs get

Le Day Off

  • Rated as: 3/5

Hi, I recently (a week ago) went to Paris and tried to find most of these bars. Don't bother! There's only three of them left, le so what, 3W and the former unity bar, now called.. les mutilieres (?) or something similar to it. 


If you can only go to one, go to the former unity bar (176-178 rue St-Martin, 75003 Paris). It's a nice and cozy place where you can meet amazing people. Everyone is super nice and the place is extremely transfriendly! Once I walked in there in I felt like I never wanted to leave.


3W was very crowded and the music sounded a bit off. You propably wont be able to sit or dance in there on a saturday night but if you bring along a few friends you'll still have a blast!


Le so what is open until 5 am, so if you're planning to go there you should savor it for later in the morning unless you're planning to spend the night alone in a empty club.


Have fun everybody and stay safe! 

And timeout should really update this list, I would have saved a lot of time and patience.....
