Description

Clubbers have been dancing in the basement of the Grand Rex cinema on the Grands Boulevards since it opened in the 1930s. But over the last twenty-five years, the Rex Club, Paris’s first electro club, has garnered an international reputation for its 100% electronic music programming. The club is also known for the quality of its sound system, consisting of speakers dotted across the ceiling creating perfectly balanced sound throughout the room.

We have founder and artistic director Christian Paulet, followed by Fabrice Gadeau, to thank for the musical programming. They have closely followed and celebrated the rise of electronic music. The first electronic evening was held at the Rex Club in 1988 in collaboration with an English collective headed up by a certain DJ Ramon… his real name? Laurent Garnier!

Music for all

Since then, some of the biggest stars in the business have spun records in this little red room with its low ceiling and minimal decor: from Jeff Mills and Carl Cox to Daft Punk and Nina Kraviz. All ages and generations mix on the dancefloor – there is no VIP section or champagne fireworks here. Everything is about the DJ, who here was recognised for the first time in France as a fully-fledged artist who creates a unique musical universe.
