Along with the Duc des Lombards, this is one of the two great Parisian jazz clubs. The greatest have played here. Bigger than the average jazz room (600 seats), it isn't content to present European jazz players and the temperature often rises to the beat of American artists.

This is Paris' best house and techno club. In a large room which looks like an underground bunker dedicated to techno music, DJs display their talent aided by the excellent sound system.

Andy Wahloo is a pop art-themed club borrowing heavily from areas in Morocco and from Andy Warhol.

Andy Wahloo opens at noon for lunch, but the club scene takes over later in the evening, with DJs from around Europe spinning the groove.
