At the doorstep of the Arc de Triomphe �" L'Arc has become Paris's top hip-hop dance club within an elaborate playground of supper club, bar, and VIP boite. It's dining room kicks off the night from 9pm within a grand drawing room with floor-to-ceiling windows and hand-painted ceiling strewn in bubble-shaped chandeliers. The menu of modern bistro cuisine including tuna sashimi and grilled fillet is served late into the evening as the adjacent lounge perks to like with its onyx-backed bar and groovy tulip-chairs that thump to the beats of an in-house jukebox and DJs. But the main attraction is alas the dance club, a right of night passage for everyone from Rafael Nadal to Jay-Z and Beyonce, led by international mixers like DJ Magnum that spin a virtuoso medley of hip-hop wattage on a grand scale that's unrivaled in Paris.


A great mix of ages, the club’s showy collection of late 20s to mid-40 club revelers offers an upscale dance venue with sexy summer courtyard that’s one of the best in the city.

Last Word

During summer months, L’Arc operates a unique outdoor terrace with happy hour service and late-night overflow from the dance floor that usually comes with the sounds of popping champagne corks and supermodel catcalls.
