What should we expect from a Paris nightclub named after a famous Russian lover and rebel? The Raspoutine in Paris is not too different to the ones in Rome, Marrakech, and Monaco

The venue is pure extravagance. If it were not for the one theme of the colour red holding the decor together, you could accuse it of being totally over the top. The glowing red lanterns, chandeliers, and ceiling lights provide a luxurious fiery lighting for the intricately detailed carpets and heavy red curtains. The dark wooden furnishings and red upholstery also reflects the light wonderfully, and the overall feel is of a club that is made for VIPs only.
Choose between open booth seating, smaller corner booths, and intimate tables for two or for parties, depending on whether you want to be part of the main party, or just a casual observer enjoying the show. Reservations are definitely recommended, but there is enough seating that you might be able to get a table on the day if you just show up.
For an incredibly memorable night, definitely stop by early-ish, around twelve. Like most French nightclubs, the Chez Raspoutine Pairs starts a bit before midnight and doesn't close until the early hours of the morning. Which means that the softer music and mingling will be happening around the time when many English or American clubs are getting into party mode. But rest assured, as the night rolls on the beats get stronger and the crowd gets more pumped.
The music is pretty loud and you may not be able to hear yourself think after one or two, much less hold a conversation. But who is at a club for a chat about philosophy? This Paris nightclub specializes in hip hop and RnB music, very danceable and very fun for a great night out.
Expect to see some of the sexiest people in Paris here. The sexy decor and the great music attracts many Parisian celebrities, including models and artists. During Fashion Week especially you can expect to see models and designers just chilling out, having a drink, and relaxing in the comfortable lounge. Being this close to such famous and beautiful people is not exactly a rarity at this Paris club!
Because of the crowd it attracts, it can be hard to get in even if you are dressed impeccably and looking incredibly hot. You therefore need to reserve a table or even bottle service to make sure that you have a place. Otherwise you can expect to queue for hours and maybe not even get in.
Once inside the servers are very attentive and will make sure that your every need is met. They will give you the full VIP experience you deserve, from bottle service, to caring for your bags for you. You should have a personal server who will stay with you for most of the night, topping up drinks, making sure you are feeling well and generally having a good time.
