Paris at Night - Too Noisy to Sleep

Paris Nightlife

While the nightlife in Paris might be a huge draw for those of us who go on vacation there, the noise from bars and clubs being open until late is quite problematic for people who actually live there.


THE battle raging on Rue Du Faubourg Saint-Denis, a shabby Paris street where hip bars are sprouting like mushrooms, is part of a wider war in the city pitching sleep-starved residents against nocturnal revellers.

Here, as in districts across Paris, officials are trying to reconcile locals' demands for peace and quiet with the French capital's stated aim of regaining its lost reputation as a buzzing city with great nightlife.

The freewheeling scenes in Berlin, Barcelona or London have left Paris so far behind in the eyes of many revellers that Le Monde newspaper a few years ago dubbed it the "European Capital of Boredom".
