The range of Parisian club Les Étoiles’ programming is almost unheard of: Japanese electro, hybrid techno and sharp, sombre DJ sets jar with wacky theme parties like the Cirkus, a mixed clubbing-cabaret event (including magicians, illusionists, dwarf performers, commercial electro and a ‘VIP’ section). You’ll have to do a bit of research before coming, as the club obviously books a broad and almost haphazard program of parties and events.
The venue, located in the 10th, is actually a former theatre and Les Étoiles’ management has taken full advantage of the old fly system, creating spectacular light displays worthy of a glamorous ’70s discotheque. The club’s interior is sleekly designed with stage curtains, a tessellated metal ceiling and a spacious mezzanine, which you can escape to when the dance floor gets too sultry (it is HOT under the lights).
Drink prices are fairly standard: around €5 for a soft drink, €6 for a beer and €10 for cocktails or liquor. The entry fee depends on the party, but generally stays between €9 and €15. The sound system is also quite impressive and Radio Nova stages some excellent concerts here. Wide range, did we mention?
