Why should the boys have all the fun? We’re always writing about bars and clubs for gay guys in the Marais, but there are some great parties for the girls too. Paris’ lesbian venues might not be as well-known as the city’s gay bars, but they are still well worth investigating. There’s also the occasional party too, and the one that’s coming up this month is going to be pretty special!
In two weeks’ time, just after the Easter break, one of the season’s biggest lesbian nights is coming to town. It’s called the Girlie Circuit, and it promises to be a very long night, with the doors opening before midnight and the party going on til dawn the next morning. It’s in the chic Saint Germain neighbourhood, on the left bank, so it’s just a quick hop across the river from the Marais. That’s where the pre-pre-party (keep up!) is happening, at the Sly Bar.
You can expect some of the capital’s most glam girls, with drinking and dancing all night long …
Barcelona Beach Babes
And if it all sounds very glam, that’s because it’s actually the official pre-party for a much, much bigger party in Barcelona later in the year. The Girlie Circuit is a week-long festival of fun that takes place in the Catalonian capital hat’s right: they’re having the warm-up in Paris and the real thing in Barcelona. Sounds like nice work to us!
A Boost For The Scene?
With recent news about iconic lesbian bar Le Troisième Lieu once again under threat of closure following complaints from the neighbours and financial troubles, this could be just the boost that the Paris lesbian scene needs!
