Unique Shower Bar in Town

Average Reviews


Known for its infamous "shower show," this bar draws a trendy mix of younger locals, adventurous study abroad students, and international visitors, all eager to experience a unique blend of nightlife entertainment​​.

Raidd Bar's signature event, the Shower Show, featuring hot, hunky male dancers who perform in a huge aquarium-like tank embedded in the bar's wall, ensuring there's never a dull moment. But it's not just about the eye candy; the bar also hosts themed nights like Disco Tuesdays and Brazilian Wednesdays, keeping the party vibe alive all week long​​.

Despite being one of the most popular gay bars in Paris, Raidd maintains a welcoming atmosphere with reasonably priced drinks and a cozy lounge area in the basement, perfect for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle above. With no cover charge to enter and a vibrant crowd, it's a great place to mix, mingle, and maybe even pick up a number or two​​.

What sets Raidd apart is not just its entertainment but also its commitment to creating a safe and inclusive space. The performers, from the male strippers showering hourly in plexiglass stalls to the shirtless bartenders, add to the bar's allure, making it a visual treat. It's a spot where you can expect pop music, boys dancing, and the occasional shower show, all contributing to a lively and engaging atmosphere.

The shower show is a scam, lasts 3 min around 12:30 with no nudity. Drinks are overpriced, but otherwise the bar has a nice vibe and fun music

The shorter drinks ever in my life. We order one mojito and they serve it in shot glass with lots of ice and no alcohol . In necessarily Ridiculous for the price we paid …

What happened to this place! Used to be an actual gay bar, now it's just full of tourists and groups of girls/hen parties watching the pretty tame shower show. Very overpriced drinks and you might as well be in a straight club. Won't be going back.

Traveled all the way from the Netherlands, told my friends that this was the most amazing bar ever… Just to arrive at the door and be told by the bouncer that we couldn’t go in. Just because no…

Le Raidd is a great place with a fantastic happy hour, inspired drinks, incredible staff and the shower show is unparalleled. I'm not just saying this because I have a crush on Jaures, but he just adds to the amazingness.

I was there back in 2021. I flew in to Paris with some friends from California & decided to check this place out. A bit boring at first, but after midnight the club got crowded and fun.I met so many cool people and had a great time :). I think they closed at 2 or 3 am, but not big deal since they are clubs all over.

Full of aggressive and invasive girls. When the show starts, they always take the center piece, making comments, laughing, noise, and unwanted comments. No girls should be allowed into a gay club.

Too many black workers. They are rude and aggressive. We want the true authentic Paris experience. This city is infested with black Africans. It looks dirty and disgusting here.

Half of our friends including me were inside and my friends just called me who were standing outside the club to tell that the guards weren’t allowing them inside. Dont know why. We were not drunk at all as we were hoping to buy drinks inside. Been here few times but they just rejected us without giving any reasons.Really disappointed.Thankfully I went to Le cud club just near to this club and it was super nice.Peace and cheers.

Very boring experience, no fun gay atmosphere, it's like a waiting room for gays. No go go dancers, drinks are very expensive! Sadly not what it used to be.

Boring. Tired venue. Overpacked with rude people. The bar tender also scammed my friend. He ordered a double gin and tonic and a can of red bull (for the bartender) to be nice and was charged 34 euros.

Half of our friends Were inside and he did not allow us. Dont know why. We were not drunk at all as we were hoping to buy drinks inside.

From the entrance without the reason the guard doesn't let us enter. After a few seconds he was allowed to enter 2 white guys but when they heard our experience they left and said us guys don't spend your money here , better find another place . This is one of the most disgusting experiences ever . What a racist bar and people

Beware of the scam 1 drink bought 1 drink for free during happy hour. It's for the same person. They wanted to make us pay double. We argued and finally got the +1 for free

The bar is located in a former printing press, and has a unique industrial atmosphere. The walls are exposed brick, and there are large metal beams overhead. The dance floor is large and open, and there is a small stage where DJs perform.Le Raidd is a popular spot for electronic music lovers, and there are often live DJ sets from up-and-coming artists. The atmosphere is always lively, and the prices are very reasonable.The place is known from its naked go-go dancers show.

Like most visitors, I came here for the shower show. Kinda disappointed, only 1 small shower stall, the performance was short and boring. I was expecting better actions. Worth a visit if you are curious.

Ok. Really meh.I was there at 20:40 on a Saturday and it started to get packed by 23:00.Music was quite bad and then it got good for a bit with some international hits.Drinks are probably the worse I have ever had. 10.50€ per drink and you need probably 10 to feel something. Not worth the money to be honest.

Omg go for the shower show! Fyi you see everything (X rated). But it gets suuuuuper packed (don't go if you're clostrophobic and watch your belongings/drinks)!

Full of girls. This doesn’t feel like a safe place anymore. A place that once used to be great for gay men is now being appropriated by cis women looking for a fun night out. Being attacked and insulted by a women in an LGBT safe place should not happen in 2023.

There's always going to be one guy that's cruising for attention and annoying other guests in these bars. Drink was okay, staff were okay, music was okay, but I didn't stay for more than one drink because that one particular guy wanted to constantly come up to me and annoy me seeking attention. Finished my drink quickly and left, Who's around the corner seemed to be a much better place.

The bouncer literally the rudest person on earth, we were just talking to him so nicely and politely. I never experienced this in my entire life. Don’t let anyone talk to you this way specially when you are spending your money inside and you are paying there bills! Please respect the clients!

It's a nice place but we went there in monday so it seems we didn't see the full potential of that place. Still there was a shower dancer for about 15 minutes and it was impressive. The staff were also very hot guys so it was a pleasure ordering drinks but the wine was not of great quality and the aperol spritz was in smaller glass compared to other places.

I just left the bar after a few drinks and one shower show.Drinks are bad and expensive, plus the music is the worst. This bar needs some serious DJ to fix the damn music. The shower show is not something you will watch again after seeing it once. The performer seems like he doesn’t want to do his job. Won't go back again.

What bothers me the most is the fact that it is supposed to be an inclusive space. The last time I went there with my gays (males) friends for a farewell party half of our gay group was shut down and denied entry because “too many girls” (most of them lgbtqia+ Friendly). It’s the only night club as a female where I feel safe. And yet again tonight, I decided with a friend to go out for a cigarette to breathe fresh air, our group was inside and the same bouncer that told us we couldn’t get back in. All our stuff already being inside. So were our friends. We didn’t get any notice to not being able to get back in when we went out… what a disgrace for such an “inclusive” place. And it was with the same bouncer than last time. Problem happened.Check for a tall, dreadlocks hair guy because it’s always the same struggle. Shame for the only place in Paris where gays, lesbian, women could be safe to party (all being on the same community …)

I recently visited in Sept 2022. The atmosphere in the bar was fire, I went two nights in a row on a Thursday and Friday. For me, the best bar by far! Great music and nice and friendly bar staff. Easy to talk to and they provide a really friendly service, easy to engage in conversation with.I would highly recommend this bar, friendly customers and staff! Easy to make some new friends there too 🙂

When the guy finally crawled out of his cave, 2 hours after the bar staff said the shower would be on he only lasted 5 mins!! The place was beyond busy and a total fire hazard / get some aircon. 16euro drinks by some sassy muscle boys. Would rather drink battery acid then go back.

Raidd plays good music, nice bar decor, doormen were actually friendly which isn't always the case in bars/clubs :). The bar staff were also nice enough too. The shower show was rly fun but my husband had his card pickpocketed during the show. Please keep an eye on your belongings when the show is on as it is clearly an ideal time to pickpocket people. Also when my husband went to the toilets a French guy came up to me and seemed to be flirting, the security asked him to leave within a minute so I suspect he may also have been a known pickpocket. However nice bar and worth going... But as a tourist keep your eye on belongings 🙂

Not a gay club- a gay *men’s* club. Myself and five queer women were the only people turned away because we weren’t in a group of men. Meanwhile there were plenty of women who were let in with men. The lack of solidarity from the men in the queue, who stood by whilst members of their community were turned away was also super disappointing. One of them suggested me and my girlfriend should make out to prove to the bouncer that we were queer….. nice. Save yourself a trip and support a different LGBTQIA* venue

doorman wouldn't let my partner and I (visibly trans and femme) into the club for no reason, claiming it was full and then proceeded to let 2 groups of 5 averagely dressed white men with large backpacks in without question. not worth the time.

Heavily overrated. Small place, only one small shower for the show. Too crowded to enjoy and have a good time. Stay home and tune some xxx rate content on internet. It’s better.

Guys if you want to see the ego and rudeness of the security go to this expense ( without any reason) bar. Arab and African security men will make you feel as you are in Africa not in France... disordered no management... illiterate, uneducated, mannerless door men. Everyone is complaining for the door men but there is no management to take any action.

Place doesn't really start coming alive until after 12 but after that (and the beginning of the shower show, which is certainly an eye opener) it really kicks off. Staff including security all lovely. Special thanks to Ruben for great bar service. Roaming service team great too. Friendly patrons, very welcoming. Music also picks up as the night goes on. Only downside is the cost of the drinks...this is Paris I suppose but it makes Ibiza look inexpensive. 🙂

The prices are crazy !!!! €42 for 2 double vodka and coke.. waited in the queue for half hour or more, slow service. Tried to scam us when by not giving us the change 😂 stay away.

This Bar has history of Discrimination against people of color , so if you are Asian , Brown , Latino and Doesn't look "White" enough , you wont get Entry and there are high chances you would be disappointed and insulted , its 2021 but still the Bar looks down upon on people of color , so dont take risk to go there and ruined your beautiful night

I went here for my birthday, and it was actually a great experience. My partner and I really enjoyed the shower show. The only thing I didn’t really enjoy was the drink. It was pricey, and it wasn’t even strong (I’m a lightweight so it’s kinda good for me) but the alcohol level is a no for my partner. The music wasn’t really good but just ok. They need to start playing songs that are in the top chart whether it’s pop or rave or R&B or circuit. The bouncers at the time was friendly so I’ve no bad comment with that. Other than that, we really enjoyed this place! Will be coming back again for the third time! 😍

It was OKAY. Nothing really special. Really small venue, overpriced drinks( Vodka with Pineapple 10,80euros). The DJ played a few good songs but when my friend politely requested a new song, he got mad and made him leave the area of the DJ. The shower show was good to watch for 5 minutes but instead of showering, the boys dont do anything special.

The overall experience was great, yet the music choice was pretty anticlimactic the whole night. No gay anthems, just commercial latino music and it does get boring.
