During fashion week you always have so many shows but what happens when the sun goes down? Here are the clubs we think are the best to go to during fashion week.
Located right near the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysees there is a very elite and trendy club called L’arc. They always manage to pull off a great party with collaborations with 1Oak, Dj’s from around the world, after parties for artists like Rihanna, The Weeknd, Tyga, Travis $cott etc. With hard entry due to strict dress code policies to celebrities coming in and out this club feels very prestigious and exclusive. I don’t think I have ever been surrounded by more celebrities than when I was at L’arc. Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Hailey Baldwin walked right past us looking so fabulous just as we entered.
Then you have VIP room located near the famous Musee du Louvre, where they also have a lot of after parties, sponsored parties and live performances like Azealia Banks and Cris Cab. This club is more elite and can be quite picky of who they let in, especially during fashion week. Hopefully, you can make those connections to get in beforehand or you, your friends or co-workers can make a table reservation in advance.
VIP Room has some really cool features. For example, they have exotic dancers and acrobats that sometimes perform on hoops hanging from the ceiling. There is a platform in the middle of the dance floor that slowly spins constantly through the night. When that time comes around that you need a smoke break you can go into the glass room that is decorated like a jungle and has benches to sit on. The environment is calming and makes you feel like you are getting some fresh air.
If you don’t like those kinds of vibes and your style is a little more hip-hop you can go to Le Pompon. It has a much more casual environment with good music and you have the opportunity to meet some really cool people working in fashion, art, and music. Celebrities like to go to this club to start the night because it is quieter and not as known. Travis $scott and Kendall Jenner were both there before heading to L’arc. There is no specific type of dress code at Le Pompon. If you want to wear funky sunglasses and a fur coat, go for it!
If you are looking for a more relax, laid back environment after a day of nonstop fashion shows, Silencio is definitely the place to go. Of course, it has a dance floor but this club also has numerous rooms you can escape to if you just want a night of drinking and talking with friends. With every turn, you will find a random door leading to a hidden room. During fashion week, you will find many designers, photographers, stylist, rappers and bloggers here. Take the time to unwind and meet new contacts while hanging out in the underground maze that is Silencio.
When you walk into Jangal you are reminded of the scene in Mean Girls when Cady pictures everyone at the school as jungle animals. The name gives it away with people dancing like wild animals and a dreamy jungle decor. If you want to dance and listen to some fun trap and hip-hop music I definitely recommend going here. Every time I have been here during fashion week it has been one of the best nights of my life. They have a really cool DJ named Jay Weather that performs weekly and they have some other live performances and launch parties as well.
