When one goes to Paris they immediately want to see the main attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, the Lourve and Notre Dame. And of course when you're in Paris we do also expect you to have just as much fun at night as you would during the day.

With that said, we have scouted out the top places for you to have a wild night out in Paris. More»

We're familiar with pop-up stores, but there's a new hot concept in the short-term usage of space, and it's something we can all get on board with: the pop-up club. From cities as foreign as Istanbul and as familiar as Miami, jet-setters no longer have to search for the local hot spot because where the well-heeled crowd travels, the clubs now follow.

Though Britain handed rule of Hong Kong back to China in 1997, the city is still full of English touches. From the name of streets to the hoards of expats that call Hong Kong home, the British influence still lingers. Hong Kong has no shortage of nightlife, and one of the best ways to enjoy the city's bars is by embracing its English past and checking out all the great gastro pubs. From a late night drinking spot to a restaurant where you can find traditional English fare, here's where to channel your inner Brit in Hong Kong. More»
Modern-day Paris certainly has an interesting nightlife scene, and a look back at the early days of Parisian partying may reveal why.

Documented in an 1899 book called Bohemian Paris of To-Day, authors William Chambers Morrow and Edouard Cucuel reveal some of the city's most haunting bars and clubs of La Belle Epoque. More»
Below 14th Street, Travis Bass is a familiar face to the locals, downtown creatives, and nightlife regulars. Being a resident of Chinatown since 1998, Travis has done the event design for parties in the same neighborhood he calls home. He is known for New York-centric popup parties in converted Chinese restaurants, such as Madame Wong’s and Red Egg, that have attracted models and socialites. His new pop-up party, Inga, is at the space 141 Chrystie Street. To this event designer, inspiration comes from the retro, the glamorous, the cinematic, and the real.
Guest of a Guest met with Travis at the Bowery Hotel to discuss his latest pop up party, Inga. Over coffee and wine, Travis spoke enthusiastically about his projects and the things that keep New York and downtown nightlife authentic. [Travis Bass, Photo via Purple Diary] More»
Persistence, persistence, persistence -- Justin Ross Lee is never one to give up. After recounting his list of bans from clubs and restaurants up and down the island of Manhattan about a month ago, a few bad memories resurfaced. One memory in particular that hit a sore spot: his longstanding feud with doorman Aalex Julian. A Twitter war soon erupted after the article was posted, and since then tensions have been high. So high, in fact, that when JRL stopped by Dream Downtown last week, the night ended with Lee filing a police report for harassment against Julian! JRL has been flashing this little report on all forms of his social media, so I asked to hear his side of the story. Below, JRL relives the night in his own words: More»
With less than 24 hours notice to pull off a debut soft opening for the L.A. rendition of NYC's beloved barbershop speakeasy bar, the Blind Barber boys drew quite an impressive crowd seldom seen west of La Brea to Culver City last night. After receiving news their liquor license was active on Wednesday night, they rallied the troops and got emergency backup from mainest men Will Crimes and Nick Foster to supply tunes for the first night of operation at Blind Barber L.A. We swung by to help christen the new digs with cocktails and snapped some shots (alas, with camera phone) to give you a sense of what the place is like in action along with our notes on the experience.

Bantam, Stanton Street’s newest bar, can be easily missed due to its small and clandestine store front. From the street, nothing is revealed besides for a neon lit “17” that is installed above the door. But like its boxing-based definition, “small but powerful,” Bantam is the new hip hub of partners Scott Hockens, Seamus Regan, Norman Reedus, and Amit Zaman.
The owners of Bantam pride themselves on the exclusive nature of their new lounge. The latest nightlife spot, only 3 weeks young, recently opened in place of the once beloved Stanton Public (and for a very brief time, the Elsinore). Stanton Street’s popular dive bar has been replaced with a chic new décor that is better described as elegantly eclectic. More»
