Champs Elyssées, Paris
At night the Champs comes to life! There are many shops open to until at least 9pm and on Weekends they are open until much later.
Most of the restaurants around this area are also open until much later, but do expect to pay a small premium for the tourist rates.
Dress Code: The widest avenue in the world demands that you look chic and stylish... after all this is the home to shops like Louis Vuitton, BOSS and much more!
There are so many lifely places in Paris, where you can enjoy the city of light in the evening. One of the first times in Paris I did the obliged walk along the very known Avenue des Champs Elysees in the evening. At that moment the atmosphere is totally different from the day.
Along the avenue itself and in its area are a lot of shops, boutiques and (fastfood)restaurants. One of my favourite dinners I had in the Lebanese restaurants 'Fakhr El Din' south of the Champs Elysees (at the Rue Quentin Bouchart nr.3, metro Georges V).
In Paris I always like it walking a lot through the city during the day. But If I am not too tired, I continue to walk in the in the evening as well.
When it's getting dark, it's wonderful to see all the lights in the city of light. All monuments and landmarks in Paris are beautifully illuminated, like the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triumphe. specially the Eiffel Tower has sparkling lights around 10pm.
A stroll along the Champs Elysees anytime is a wonderful experience, but a stroll in the evening is even better. The lights, the people, the hustle and bustle all make it a real sensory experience.
There are lots of restaurants and nightspots along the way. Grab a glass of wine and just do some people watching. You'll see people dressed in their finest and people in jeans - but they all seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as we were.
A walk on Champs-Elysees is a delight not only by day but also by night.
Surrounded buy high class shops (some of these shops are still opened until late in the night), Champs-Elysees is a romance of light and colors.
Numerous elegant restaurants open their terraces on the sidewalk and tasting an exotic cocktail and enjoying the view it's a perfect way to spend a pleasant evening in Paris.
Well I didn't go out at night too much in France. At the end of the day I was very tired.
The second day I was in Paris I went to Lido. So I saw in Champs Elysee that many of the cafe i saw earlier became bar.
So next day I went to see a little of nightlife in Paris.
It is very quiet those places in the Champs, they are cool if what you are looking for is a beer or wine while you are listening music and meeting people.
Prices are sightly expensive. You don't have to pay for coming in but you have to drink something.
Dress Code: There you can wear whatever you want. Paris is the variety city.
The mostly of us were wearing jeans and a nice blouse or shirt.
Everything is here and by day it's mobbed. Nighttime is moderatly better and far more beautiful. Paris, a city known for light, is spectacular here most of all. Walking down the street brings wafts of gourmet foods, wines, tobaccos, parfumes, coffees... it just goes on and on. People from everywhere and every part of life are here, too. From the poshest of the posh to the endless, faceless tourist mobs; babys wailing, lovers cooing, everything.
Bar Fly and Man Ray were definitely very cool places to grab a drink. At the moment, these are the places to see and be seen. We got the chance to hang out with a French Celebrity during our time at Bar Fly. Loads of fun!
Dress Code: Dress smart!
Champs Elyssees is all lit up and beautiful at nighttime in Paris. It's one of the most romantic places in the world, especially from the top of the Arc de Triomphe. you can see that all the streets of Paris form a star around it, and at night that's twice as pretty.
The restaurants on the champs Elysees are still open so in the summer you can dine outdoors, and there's also stores, cinema, etc.
The Champs Elyssées is wonderful any time of the day but my favorite time to explore this street is at night. Spring and Summer nights are especially nice when the street cafes are in full swing, busteling with locals and tourists. My favorite route is to take a walk after dinner from the Arc de Triomphe on the top to the very bottom, ducking in and out of shops along the way. If you don't have enough energy to walk back to your hotel you can take the Metro to just about anywhere in the city.
Dress Code: If you're just going for a walk anything goes. If you're out for dinner or a night on the town you shoud probably dress up a bit.
The Champs Elysées, the biggest and most popular street in Paris is ideal to have a little walk in the evening / at night. Most shops are opened, so you can shop through the boutiques (attention: very expensive!!) or have a drink in one of the coffee-shops and restaurants. There are also many cinemas and bars along this street.
Dress Code: It can get cold at night, so take a jacket with you...
No dress code in the restaurants.
If you are looking for a café, you can find some everywhere on the avenue. But finding a good pub is more difficult...
- Murphy's House (Irish pub - live music on WE)
-Firkin (Large irish pub. Closes late on WE)
- African pub (?) (Calm and comfortable with soft light. Try the ginger cocktail !)
- Chesterfield café (American pub. Difficult to get a sit if
you only want to have a drink)
- The Bowler (Irish pub, not to crowdy)
- Sir Winston (large pub, quite smart)

I didn't go to any clubs or bars, but just a stroll along the Champs Elysees at night was enough! There are many bars, restos, clubs that you can pop into. It's also a great way to see the Arc de Triomphe lit up at night.
Once we were clubbing on Champs-Elysees, the two clubs i liked there were Planet Holywood & Latina Cafe.
The entrance is free of charge in both but it depends on the facecontrol which is more tough in Planet Holywood & less in Latina Cafe.
Dress Code: To enter the Planet Holywood you should wear something very extravagant & stylish, no jeans or any street wear.
Sit in bar and stay a long long time, just drinking a wine and looking to the people. You can see very famous people just by your side, but if you want… you can keep like you don’t know them. There you’re the famous.
