Whether you've been dancing the night away at one of the city's many clubs or are simply in need of a good meal after midnight, our list of late-night restaurants has got you covered. And if you want to carry on the party after dinner, why not head to one of Paris's after-hours bars? Sleep is optional.

Late-night restaurants in Paris

Restaurants, French

La Maison de l'Aubrac

icon-location-pin Champs-Elysées

Open: 24 hours

This down to earth restaurant just off the Champs-Elysées is a surprisingly good choice for quality and price given the location. The décor is far from luxurious, but the service is attentive and the cooking honours the tender Aubrac beef. Entrecôte, rump steak, tartare and bavette – or if you prefer, other classics like fillet of sea bream or duck confit with figs. Open 24/7, this is the ideal stop-off after a heavy night.

Bars and pubs, Wine bars

Le Tambour

icon-location-pin Réaumur

Open until: 6am Mon-Sun

Ordinary during the day, Le Tambour quickly becomes the haunt of all the neighbourhood’s night owls and insomniacs. The atmosphere is warm and the eccentric clientele make the place –with a jumble of salvaged road signs as decoration, there’s a distinct sailor’s tavern vibe. Satisfy cravings for andouillette (a malodorous intestine sausage), pig’s feet or steak, washed down with a box or a bottle of wine à la ficelle (you only pay for what you drink). Remember though, low prices creep up in the early hours.

La Tour de Montlhéry (Chez Denise)

icon-location-pin Les Halles

Open until: 5am Mon-Fri

At the stroke of midnight, this place is packed, jovial and hungry. Savoury traditional dishes, washed down by litres of the house Brouilly, are the order of the day. Les Halles was the city's wholesale food market, and game, beef and offal still rule here. Diners devour towering rib steaks served with marrow and a heaped platter of chips, among the best in town. Brave souls can also try tripes au calvados, grilled andouillette, or perhaps stewed venison, served with celery root and home-made jam.

Mama Shelter Pizzeria

icon-location-pin 20e arrondissement
Open until: 1.30am Mon-Sun

Located in the 20th district of central Paris, this hotel, designed by Philippe Starck, oozes contemporary chic. Serving posh pizzas, desserts and wine by the glass, bottle or carafe, this is the kind of place you'll want to show off to the out-of-towners. There's even a glow-in-the-dark graffiti ceiling. Right across the street from indie-electro music venue La Flèche d’Or, this is the ideal spot for a post-gig feast.
