The area
Neighbourhood: Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighbourhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was initially cautious upon reading the reviews, but decided to check it out anyway. And I was so glad I did. Had such a blast: and it was just a Wednesday night!

Shows:
There were 3 shower shows that night, the first of which started at 12:30am.
Tip: the dancer was super sweet, and he got more "liberated" as the night wore on; and puts on a better show to an enthusiastic crowd.
In between the shower shows, there were also a Diva on stage belting out pop favorites.

Drinks:
The bartender was hot & friendly; and the drinks cost about €8 for either a beer, or cocktail (I got a draft beer, Corona, and gin tonic all for around €8 each)

Crowd:
It gets crowded around midnight; admittedly most of whom don't appear to be local Parisians. But everyone's warm & welcoming and ready to party.

Will definitely visit again in my next trip.

Drink is expensive for no reason. I’ve been traveling around Europe and living in NYC. Most average gay clubs in NYC, Jack n coke is around $7-10. Even a nice rooftop gay bar also has drinks around $10-12. Here i got €12 for a shot for a slum club type my lovely Metropolitan gay club in East Williamsburg.

I ended up at RAIDD by accident... but... it was one of the best nights I had in Paris. When I first walked in, I went downstairs by accident and met the manager Brian. He was an absolute Gem. Brian took care of myself and my new friends (whom I met at Raidd) all night.

From the very attractive bar tenders to the men doing the shower shows (my first every experience seeing this) it was a really fun experience. It left me talking about this club for weeks. I was most impressed with how courterous Brian was towards me, the bartenders were great to work with (even on the patio outside they were taking care of us) and the dance floor was jam packed!

I met lots of new people there - gay and straight - and all of us were enjoying the conversations, the drinks and everything this club had to offer!

For the ladies - I would caution you about the bathroon... there is no toilet seat and it is a COED bathroom. Overall - it added to the experience and gave me something to chat to my friends about!

Thank you Brian and your staff for a really fun experience! It was a late night but a great night!

Far too cramped, €21 a drink, and no show until 00:45 despite being advertised as 18:00-04:00. Staff continually advised there would be a show at midnight, even after midnight had passed. Disappointing, no atmosphere, would not recommend.

Avoid this place. Overpriced, full of tourists waiting for a piece of meet (not the one in the crowd, the one tattooed under the shower unfortunately). Furthermore, sexist door policy. If you want to discover a central gay place, go to Cox, Quetzal or FreeDJ. It’s full of local, and definetly a more welcoming service and cheaper drinks. You want a piece of meat ? Why not try the local one in Impact.

The drinks here are very expensive. The atmosphere is good. However, they advertise a ‘shower show’ and there was no shower show took place at all the two evenings we spent here!

Went on a random week night but this place was so lit! Really cute shirtless bartenders and fun music and dancing. The manager was really sweet too and gave us free drinks. Would recommend, but just be careful how much you’re spending!

Came here about 10 years ago, and they had naked gogo boys dancing in multiple showers built into the walls. This year we paid €21 each for a drink, stayed several hours & didn’t see a single show in the one shower area that’s left. It was the middle of Europe’s heatwave, there was no air conditioning & the music was terrible. I kept waiting for the night to get better, but it never did

We went on a Sunday so I dont know if it was only luck, but we got in for free. The shower men were really fine and the atmosphere of the place was very nice. Good place to go with friends and enjoy, although i wouldnt go by myself.

Me and my partner always go to raidd when in Paris and never had an issue until last night, both of our drinks were spiked. Wasn't easy to get back to our hotel but luckily we did.
