Le Balajo

Live Music in Bastille & Eastern Paris

A mainstay of Parisian nightlife since 1936, this ancient ballroom is devoted to Latin American music and dance classes (Bachata; Cuban salsa) during the week, with clubbing on weekends when the dance floor rocks until aube (dawn). But the best time to visit is for its old-fashioned thés dansants (tea dances), held from 2pm to 7pm on Mondays.
