In Pigalle, there is, on the one hand, the famous cabaret Moulin Rouge, where Toulouse-Lautrec once hung his hat, but for fans of a more electronic kind of nocturnal entertainment, on the other there is this huge, innovative, shape-shifting club.

The main venue, Le Central, is a veritable neighbourhood institution, attracting a thousand dancers every weekend with its house mixes and big
name DJ sets. You’ll also find crowd-pleasing evenings like 90s revival nights and larger-than-life karaoke projected onto a giant screen.

1,000 people on the dance floor

For those who prefer more intimate musical experiences, the Chaufferie (boiler room), in the basement, is a small, grungy, low-ceilinged club, but with a high-energy vibe and an avant-garde line-up that oscillates between alt-rock and experimental music. Somewhat surprising for a nightclub venue like the Machine is their third space, the Bar à Bulles (bubble bar), decorated like an apartment, that proposes small plates and a brunch menu. Open from noon on weekends or from 6pm during the week, its most appealing feature is the sun-filled terrace decorated with plants that gives onto the picturesque cobblestoned Cité Véron street, once home to the poet Jacques Prévert and author Boris Vian.
