The nightlife scene in France


Having access to a good nightlife scene can be a determining factor for many expats upon choosing their next destination. Tell us more about the nightlife in France.

In France, what is the nighlife culture like: is it common for people to go out at night? Is there a big difference between the nightlife during the weekdays and weekends?

What are the most popular evening or nighttime activities (e.g. bars, nightclubs, shows, cultural activities, etc.)?

Is it safe to venture out in the evening and at night in France?

Is there anything in particular that surprised you about the nightlife in France?

Are there any apps or websites (or any other resources) that would help in staying informed about evening and nighttime activities?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


I never cease to be astounded by the question "What is X like in France?"
France is a huge country.
Is it safe at night? What is there to do at night? *Whaaaat!!!!???*
Would you dream of asking that of 'America'? "Is it safe at night?" What's nightlife like in the US?"
How about going out and seeing for yourself?
