If you have time to take in a bit of Parisian nightlife, then head to Concrete - one of the hottest nightspots in Paris. Extremely clever by design, Concrete is a three-level boat with a roof terrace that is permanently moored on the banks of the Seine.
The city’s first nightclub to be awarded a 24-hour licence, Concrete has evolved since its inception five years ago into an ideal haven for house and techno lovers looking to party into the early hours. The club is renowned for billing some of the world’s most-respected techno DJs and it prides itself on keeping its music underground. Given its popularity the queues are always long, so come equipped with plenty of patience; it’s definitely worth the wait.

Where to stay - Generator Hostel Paris
So, where does one rest one's weary head after an amazing night out hitting the tiles? The Generator Hostel. I know what you're thinking, hostels don't exactly scream 'luxe', but Generator Paris is no ordinary hostel - it provides cool and comfortable facilities that are perfect for a whistle-stop city break. Located near Niemeyer’s iconic French Communist Headquarters, Generator Paris is just a few steps from Canal Saint-Martin and Buttes-Chaumont Park and only a 15-minute stroll from Gare du Nord train station.
