Eiffel Tower light show

In Paris New Year's Eve, known locally as Saint-Sylvestre, is usually celebrated with a feast, le Réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre. Second only to the Bastille Day fireworks and parade on the 14 July, or Quatorze Juillet to the locals, New Years in Paris is a huge celebration. Fireworks and events tend to be concentrated around the iconic Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysees areas of the city, although the more traditional fireworks have in recent years been replaced by a spectacular light show.

I have been in Paris for new year in the past and can confirm it is a fabulous, if slightly manic and bewildering event (especially if your French isn't brilliant and you are somewhat protective of your personal space!) One thing that's for sure it's a pricey venue, and anywhere decent will be booked up months in advance, so decide what you want to do and get your tickets and travel plans made asap!

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

Paris is renowned as being one of the top New Year’s tourist destinations anywhere in the world. Popular destinations across the city include The Moulin Rouge, Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees, Trocadero and Sacre Coeur. The Sacre Coeur Cathedral plaza in Montmartre is a popular viewing spot, giving a panoramic view across the city skyline, where you can see any smaller fireworks displays that may be taking place and are only a short walk away from being able to see the Eiffel Tower in the distance too - try the Rue St-Eleuthere for an excellent vantage point.

There isn’t an official municipal fireworks show these days, instead there’s a light show at the Eiffel Tower at midnight. There are however smaller, often unofficial fireworks across the city and indeed the wider Paris district throughout the evening. New Year’s Eve is also the feast day of Saint Sylvester in France.

One of the most popular ways to see in the New Year is on the Seine where the boat parties and extravagant dinners on offer make for an incredible end to a year. If you want something more raucous you can head to the fantastic blues and jazz bars along the river banks or to one of the cities many clubs.

For those keen on partying hard as the clock strikes 12am, there’s no better place to celebrate than the famous Champs-Elysees. On New Years Eve people will generally start to arrive here at around 9pm, armed of course with the requisite champagne bottles, plastic flute glasses and picnic bags. Popular bars in Paris for New Years Eve include Wake Up Paris, Flûte l’Étoile, Café Cheri, Cantine de Belleville, le Mansart, Nouveau Casino, The WAGG, Rex, Point Ephémère and Mix Club.

There is also usually an exclusive Gala dinner and show at the world famous Moulin Rouge - ticket details to follow.

For you new year dining options, then Paris is one city where the phrase spoiled for choice doesn't seem adequate, with over 10,000 eateries in the metropolitan area. With such a range it seems faintly ridiculous to pick our just a few choices, but we're going to give it a go anyway, so recommendations are Epicure, Bistrotters, La Tour d'Argent and Le Cinq. Top vegan choice goes to Vegebowl. One good tip is Ciel, which offers great views from the 56th floor of the Tour Montparnasse. See the full, vast, range of Paris Restaurants here.
