Nightlife / Paris

Ra Ra Raspoutine, Russia’s greatest love machine

Nightclub Raspoutine in ParisThe nightclub Raspoutine in Paris was a place I spent the night hours at when not dancing on the dance floors of Montana and Baron. We were lucky one of the evenings, the DJ was awesome, the ambiance was amazing and those two things combined with champagne makes a simple recipe for staying dancing on the dancefloor all night long.

This Russian themed nightclub has a history of beeing a brothel (or like they say in French, maison close) but then was turned into a cabaret welcoming guests such as Serge Gainsbourg, Catherine Deneuve, Frank Sinatra, tsars and princes…. Now, behind the very selective doors you’ll find a nightclub with a Byzantine-style covered with red velvet curtains and bench seats, thick red rugs, beautiful boudoir lamps hanging from the ceiling, altogether giving this place an intime and sensual charm. And yes, they do serve caviar ;-)
