Gay and Lesbian
These bars and clubs—mostly concentrated in the Marais and Les Halles—include some of the hipper addresses in the city. Keep in mind, however, that many of these spots fall in and out of favor at lightning speed. The best way to find out what's hot is by perusing the gay and lesbian magazine Têtu (available at newsstands and online at www.tetu.com) or 2X, the free "agenda" that can be found in any of the venues listed here. Paris's gay, lesbian, bi, and trans tourist office (www.centrelgbtparis.org) is another good resource, as is the civic-run nightlife website (www.parisnightlife.fr/en).
