Haven’t you heard of Les souffleurs? We are here to introduce you to this amazing bar if you are not familiar with it. Indeed, this place has been very popular among the parisian young crowds in the past few years. It consists of two spaces, with the one downstairs being opened only from thursdays to sundays, whereas the main bar opens all week long.
As the owner Eduardo explained to us, the philosophy of Les Souffleurs is to be a real LGBT place of rally. As other bars target only the gay males, or our lesbians friends, Les souffleurs tries to mix people: gay, straight, bisexual, transgender. And it works: it is the only bar which truly combines all different kind of people.
The musical choices of Les souffleurs are also a huge part of what makes it so popular. There are no defined parties, the program changes every week: there are regular DJs as well as occasional venues from DJs who come from all over the world (London, Barcelona, NYC…). The music ranges from electro to pop/rock, with a lot of interesting – and sometimes exclusive – remixes who will make you instantly want to dance. You will be able to meet locals, expats and tourists, and it’s common to hear people speak English. There is a true feeling of being part of a warm community, tolerant and low-key.
So, in short, Les souffleurs is considered to be a real vanguard place to be, because of its alternative feel. They claim to be ‘the other side of the Marais’! The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, compared to other mainstream Marais gay bars.
Les souffleurs is open every day from 6pm to 2am (you can order drinks until 1.30am). It is located on 7 Rue de la Verrerie. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do! Look for their Facebook page (Les Souffleurs) to get their updates. Their website, lessouffleursparis.com will be launched very soon.
