Silencio is owned by David Lynch and is one of the harder clubs to gain entry to in Paris. It is members only before 12 but that doesn't mean they let anyone walk in after midnight. If you do manage to get in, congratulations, it's one of the best.
Very friendly former industrial space that is a combination bar / gallery / restaurant / concert venue so you can expect a young hip crowd. The space can get very busy especially during summer when you can drink your beer in front of the canal.
Fun bar that is located on an unused barge docked in the Bassin de la Villette. The decor isn't high class and the food isn't gourmet but the beers are good and there is often live music, a great low key spot.
