Les Nuits Parisiennes at the Hôtel de Ville
Paris is a party. For Hemingway and many others, it was and continues to be a place of entertainment, transgressions, excesses and follies, fascination and intrigue.
Paris, the City of Light, shines at night and this new exhibition examines the history of the capital’s nightlife through the years.
With over 300 paintings, photos, films and artefacts, Les Nuits Parisiennes highlights the political, cultural and aesthetic evolution of Paris during more than two centuries of nocturnal escapades, from the first gambling dens of the Palais Royal via the secret nightspots of Pigalle and the cellars of Saint Germain des Prés. Today, the party goes on, as evidenced by the city’s 150 nightclubs and 13,000 cafes.
Until January 27th, 2018 at the Hôtel de Ville
4 Rue de Lobau, Paris 4th
Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to 18:30
