It's impossible to mention this Paris club/concert venue without mentioning the belle époque, booth-filled Café Charbon next door, which is consistently the best Paris bar along rue Oberkampf (and there are dozens here, so that's no faint praise). Café Charbon's owners established Nouveau Casino a decade-or-so ago, but its origins as an entertainment venue go way back. In the 19th century the space was a concert-café, becoming a cinema for decades.
Now back to its roots, Nouveau Casino's adventurous programming includes concerts, club nights and parties geared around rock and electronica, along with multimedia projections and exhibitions - the variety makes it one of the best Paris nightlife spots. So you might catch anything from New Zealand reggae dub legends the Black Seeds to New York post-hardcore rockers Glassjaw, as well as experimental DJs.
