Louvre Museum Tours

Paris Tourist Attractions

Paris boasts of an amazing blend of visual and sensory delights across its labyrinths. There is something that satisfies everyone in this city. The French capital has an abundance of musical places too, and you can enjoy live music at any of these places that fit your taste. Below are some of the places that offer the best live music in Paris which will also be a great change of mood after your Louvre Museum tours.

Au Café de Paris

This is a perfect hangout spot that has a bohemian outlook. It is located in the Rue Oberkampf region which is one of the liveliest nightlife locations. When you walk further into the Chinatown area, you will come to this beautiful place. Although it looks like a dull café from the outside, its interiors hide several delightful sights.

There is also a frescoed ballroom here, and this space hosts music, poetry, and theater show regularly. It also encourages young budding music bands too, and they have a cellar downstairs for performances.

Le China

This is one of the coolest Chinese clubs in the city. Originally, it used to be a Chinese restaurant but it has been converted into an animated music venue that anyone can enjoy on your Paris Tours. The tropical cocktail bar and the gourmet style cuisine add to the appeal of the place, while they stage performances every night with free entrance.

You also have the option of enjoying a beer if you do not want to go for a costly cocktail. The programs here are versatile with shows such as a jazz jam session, cabaret from the La Petite Cour des Astres, or performance by gypsy manouche musicians.

Le Carmen

This is a relatively new bar situated in the center of the Pigalle neighborhood. It is arranged in a lavish mansion adorned with velvet sofas and attractive chandeliers. The music is arranged by a Brit John Whelan, while the range of programs includes hip-hop fashion DJs like Jerry Bouthier and new French bands. You can enjoy the programs for free, but you should be prepared for paying the cocktails.

Le Pompon

The most attractive feature of this bar is the fact that it was once a synagogue. While the ground floor houses a lively bar, the basement is always brimming with great music, which ranges from electro-pop DJ performances to indie bands. Be ready for a wild night as the evenings here are usually jam-packed and full of energy. The prices of drinks are reasonable while the entrance is free of cost.
