Update August 2019: Concrete is now definitively closed.
When you’re on vacation in Paris and want to party hard, Concrete is the place to go. A popular spot for night owls thanks to its infamous all-day after-parties, this barge-turned-club has a booming energy and sound, and the setting just can’t be beat.
Housed in a multilevel boat docked on the Seine, Concrete is the most unique techno club in Paris. Thanks to a special license, this electronic music hotspot can stay open around the clock on the weekends, with top DJs descending on this club once a month for an all-weekend-long marathon party session. There aren’t many spots to go clubbing on a Sunday morning, but head down to the péniche starting at 7am and you’ll find the place is already pumping.
On the top deck, an open-air bar lets you sip cocktails all night under the stars. Below deck, it’s all about the dancing. Each floor has its own vibe, with DJs playing house, techno, or even hip hop. The crowd is young and full of trendy Parisians who love to party.
Entry is free if you get there before midnight. After that, admission starts at 15€ but may be more for some special events.
