Turned off by the amount of American pop music in Paris? Don’t worry, it’s not everywhere. Introducing Favela Chic: a Brazilian club with a great mix of non-pop music that’ll get you dancin’.
Located in the trendy 11th arrondissement near République, the club is a well-established Paris nightspot. (We’re not breaking any news here, folks, but it certainly merits a mention!) The DJs mix up samba, rock ‘n roll, and hip hop, creating an atmosphere that’s completely chill, if smoke-filled and hazy.
Come as you are—dress to dance, not to impress. Tuesday through Thursday is free entry and the club closes at 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday there’s a €10 cover, which includes a drink, and you can party till 4 a.m. Drinks cost between €7 and €10.
Favela Chic: 18, rue du Faubourg du Temple, 75011 Paris. Metro République (lines 3, 5, 8, 9, 11).
