Every night from 10:30 pm untill you’re kicked out !
Shows at 1:00 am some special evenings.
Le Tango dance hall plays its part in the very convivial mood of the nights at La Boîte à Frissons. This ballroom has kept the old-fashioned charm of old popular dance halls: wooden dance floor, tables and seats layed all around the dance hall, decorations from the fifties, subdued lighting and a sound system designed in a way that it is always possible to hear your neighbour clearly. The evening starts at 10.30 PM with a long sequence of couple dancing. This is doubtlessly the most surprising moment at La Boîte à Frissons, and probably a world exclusive! Couples of boys and girls carry on with Waltz, Tango, Paso Doble, Polka, Rock'n Roll, Cha Cha dances. Around 12.30 AM comes the fetish moment for the regular customers, which is a sort of ritual at La Boîte à Frissons: The Madison Dance Program. This line dance gives the opportunity of packing everybody on the dance floor and it marks the beginning of the second part of the night. The disco music begins then, and all kind of musics are carried on till 5 AM. So parisian and unique !

Les Agités is a funny french style burger place... Descending to the basement, the classic French residence-style ambiance invites you to enjoy a cocktail, snack or even dinner. Enjoy the lounge area in comfortable leather sofas arranged around a fireplace while listening to the best Paris DJs and their guests from Thursday to Saturday. Monday through Wednesday, join us for showcase concerts (from jazz to indie to soul), and "agitated" theme nights. Also every month, artists bring their brushwork and pictures to its walls, gradually penning the Agités story! Les Agités is available for private parties or events as well.
As seen in WHERE magazine : "Located close to the Centre Georges Pompidou in the heart of Paris, the chef offers a « French culinary burger tour » (duck confit, salmon or tartare and even foie gras, plus seasonal burgers), as well as lovely charcuterie and escargots. For dessert, a variation of giant profiteroles of every flavor imaginable awaits you. In the basement, the classic French residence-style ambiance invites you to enjoy a cocktail, snack or even dinner".

The nightclub, dancing scene of Paris is not really centered in the Marais.
Also known as la Boite à Frissons the Tango is an original and should not be missed. The late night part is loyal to disco but at 10:30 the Tango welcomes gays, lesbians and straight folks who enjoy the classic dances of days gone by. Couples can be seen ballroom dancing the Waltz, Paso Doble, Cha Cha and of course the Tango! The climax is at 12:30 when they all line up for the Madison. Decorated like a dance hall from the 50s the Tango is quite unique where fun is had by all.

Not in Le Marais, this institution is still a must, but is more and more straight and touristy, it seems that Les Bains Douches is now taking over a lot of their clientele.
