Currently closed due to the pandemic but L'Arc is running extravagant VIP parties on a boat called Pastel
At L'Arc Nightclub in Paris, you can expect a truly VIP treatment at a highly elite club. This isn't a venue that will let just anyone in, so when you are welcomed inside you will know that you are one of the select few who are elite enough for this exclusive venue at the Arch.
L'Arc Paris is also a restaurant by day, and you can expect some very high quality Parisian cuisine as well as some top name wines to go with it. Always ask your server what they recommend on the day for the best option. The prices run a little high, but nothing too extravagant for Paris. The waitresses are absolutely stunning and you will enjoy their company and advice.
The decor is somewhere between a traditional nightclub and a fairy land fantasy. Beautiful and shimmering in gold by day, with neon rainbow lighting by night, the mirrored ceiling and metallic tones bounce back every tone, providing a wonderfully enveloping atmosphere. The comfortable booths are just intimate enough that you are not overhearing anyone's conversations, but just open enough that you can indulge in some serious people watching, and enjoy the party even if you are having a break and a drink.
L'Arc Paris doesn't have a genuine dance floor per se. Rather, there is space by every table, allowing you to dance in the privacy and comfort of your own group. This is not a place for single young people to try and get a date for the next day, rather, it is more of a location for groups and couples of mixed ages to enjoy the atmosphere, have a few drinks, and socialize away from the general business of Paris's nightlife.
You won't be able to just walk in through the door, that's for sure. At L'Arc Club you need to make a reservation well in advance to guarantee yourself a table. If you feel concerned about a snobbish or exclusive environment, this might not be the place for you. It presents itself as an upper class establishment and you need to feel like you belong to be treated like you belong. Other guests and servers alike can sense if you feel you are too low class for the venue, which makes it uncomfortable for everyone. But if you know that you are worth everything they have to offer, and are ready to lap up a VIP service, then ask and you shall receive. Attitude is everything.
Even if you are just booking for the restaurant, make sure to reserve a table. L'Arc in Paris is in very high demand and there is no guarantee that a table will be free any time of day, so it's best to play it safe.
Even if you reserve a table and/or bottle service, you will be expected to be impeccably dressed. Entry is at the bouncer's discretion, so bring pretty reliable ID and dress smart and chic, no matter who you are or what reservation you have.
