Youth Hostel – Nightlife in Paris

If you only spend a few days in Paris, you’ll probably be a little frustrated if you don’t get to do all the things there are to be done. Paris has so much to offer in terms of output that it is difficult to make a choice!  Nightlife in Paris can cost dearly, not only because of the temptations that are so numerous, but also because the costs are relatively high. For example, on average, a beer will cost € 5-6. And of course, any drink will cost you much more if you sit at a sidewalk cafe near the monuments of Paris. Still, it’s a moment that you may not want to miss, like having a drink at the legendary Café de Flore thinking of the great philosophers…

All districts have their own set of bars, but the more lively events are in Paris, around the Place de la Bastille, Latin Quarter and Montmartre. Rue Etienne Marcel near Les Halles has lots of nice little bars and bistros, not to mention the trendy boutiques, it’s worth a stroll.

Of course, if you do not drink, Paris is full of activities for the evening! Seeing the Eiffel Tower lights shine is one. Every night after 9 pm, every hour, the Eiffel Tower lights up for 10 minutes to delight many passers-by who stop to look before continuing on their path.

Watch the other monuments of the city light up, walk along the Seine, through one of the many bridges at sunset, walk along the Canal St Martin … Paris at night is very romantic. And if you like dancing, be it salsa or tango, do not forget to go on the Quai St. Bernard, where dances are held throughout the summer, weather permitting, outdoors.

Eat in Paris
The French cuisine is world renowned, and hence you will find in Paris a wonderful selection of restaurants ranging from simple to chic. Between the two, you will find many small cafes of very good quality for a reasonable price, but it is clear that eating in Paris costs on average more expensive than in other cities in France. Stay away from areas of great monuments to avoid the blow!
For smaller budgets, it is also possible to buy sandwiches, quiches and other snacks in bakeries, and eating on a bench in one of the many beautiful city parks.
