If you are looking for a unique, over the top night out in Paris, then Monsieur Cirque nightclub is the place you want to be. The circus-themed club in Paris a unique treat for lovers of adventure and the extraordinary. Combining the thrills of circus acts with the music and social aspects of a nightclub, this venue promises fun all round.
Inside the decor holds onto the circus theme. You will see a bold stage decorated with extravagant stars and chandeliers. The big-top theme extends to the ringmaster and the shaping of the roof above the stage. You will feel immersed in a whole new world.
The acts are to die for. Sword swallowers, acrobats, jugglers, trapeze, and clowns will feature on stage and from time to time roam the crowd, to the audience's delight. The acts are taken from various other circuses and shows around Paris and the area, and their experience means you will love every minute. The costumes are fantastic, a combination of traditional circus outfits and more modern rocker styles.
Of course, with it being a French club the acts will all be in French. Do not expect translations unless they begin advertising an English show. This might spoil it for some international travelers who will not be prepared to follow a fast paced action show in French. However much of the act is purely visual, and you should be able to enjoy the acrobatics, the slapstick comedy, and the music even if you do not understand a word of French.
The audience can get in on the act, with sparklers, Roman candles, and champagne bottles to pop, keeping everyone entertained on the dance floor between and after the acts. All round the atmosphere is great fun. It is easy to get swept up in it all, especially when the music begins and the dance floor comes to life. The venue focuses on electronic music, leaning to techno and house, but with some standard electronica and remixes.
The lighting is perfect and tuned into the music and the show. It will really capture your eye and keep you thrilled. The lighting is also ideal for selfies, although you will probably rather shoot the acts than yourself.
The alcohol at the Monsieur Cirque club is not the best of any Parisian club, but it is still good and very reasonably priced as well.
The dress code is basically whatever you want. The circus theme extends to the guests, so whether you want to go dressed casually or dressed up, you'll be welcome. It has a capacity of 1500 people, which means there will be plenty of life and atmosphere. That said, this extraordinary Paris nightclub is a completely novel experience for the city, and as such it is usually absolutely packed. Expect long queues and not to be able to get in on the night. It is much smarter to make an online reservation and save yourself the stress of showing up on the day.
