The real nightlife in Paris!

Featured Guide
Where do real Parisians go to have fun? Certainly not the Champs-Elysées. The 11th, 18th, 19th or 20th arrondissements are where the hipsters gather, to find bars where the music and atmosphere rock and where you can have a blast with friends without paying a fortune. After three years as a Canadian expat in Paris, the nightlife is one of the things I love most about this city. Here's a list of my favorite places so far... I'm still discovering new places all the time.
