“Overated and Rude Staff”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

I was visiting Paris with my partner from London. We emailed in advance that we will be coming and the PR guy emailed us back to tell us we should not have problems getting into the club as long as we come before midnight which we did. This was on 19th April 2014, upon arriving at the club, there was a rude man who asked us if we had been invited (Who gets invited to clubs anyway?) I then explained politely that i had emailed in advance and showed him the email I received from a guy called Philippe Saine who I believe is part of the PR team.

At this point the guy started speaking in French with the bouncer and shaking his head. (All this conversation was happening while he was looking at his phone - How rude!) He then told us he could not let us in because we were 'not invited'. Without wanting to argue we excused ourselves and went to Le Duplex just up the road from this club and needless to say we had an awesome time in there. The music was totally fantastic and the crowd very international and mixed. Which was great.

As for this club, its overrated in my opinion, i have been clubbing all over the world and i have never been treated like that by anyone. from what i hear its also expensive in side. I would go to le duplex instead!

The staff are simply terrible and unproffesional!

“Best club in Paris with American music”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

It's sad that there is a bad review for this club. From the second we contacted the VIP manager Tomas to get in we were impressed with the hospitality. They tried to offer us a table but being that we were one couple it didn't make sense for us to get a table and a bottle. Although we did not make the big purchase he continued to be friendly with us and offered to come out front, personally walk us in and buy our first round of drinks. He went ahead and stood behind his word and did jus that, we were highly impressed and he took great care of us. The music is just like in the states with a majority of it being hip hop. They did play some top 40's but mostly hip hop which was music to our ears. It's not cheap, but you are also partying at the hottest club in Paris. Those that frequent there are the likes of Drake, Jay-z, Beyoncé, Kanye, Rick Ross, etc.
