Located in the ever-so-scandalous Pigalle, Carmen is a club notorious for an interior that looks like an abandoned 20th-century mansion.

Open seven days a week, the upstairs bar, dance floor and indoor smoking area is a great place to meet new people, while on the weekends the downstairs dance floor opens up for a whole other Paris nightlife experience. Carmen is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a night filled with dancing until the early morning hours.

The enormous smoking room is a great place to socialize, play a game of pool or even play a few arcade games. Once you hit the dance floor, you won’t want to stop dancing to the mix of rap, electronic and pop. Titty Twister is a great spot to start any night.
