Zero stars. Most unwelcoming club I've been in my life. What a shame that HVOB would choose such a venue for their live performance. Who do you guys think you are? Omnia? Not even near. I could buy every single table in your little tiny...More

Someone was smoking near us indoors. Out of nowhere a 250lbs bouncer called Toure grabbed my girlfriend by her wrists, shouted in her face and threw her against the back door and on to the pavement outside. Badaboum is an elitist trap with discriminatory management,...More

It was very dirty inside. On the ground floor there was some EDM, lyric-less music playing. We go upstairs and see lots of couches and seating area while 80s French music plays and snippets of porn and Disney movies play in small screens on the...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
