Disco Queen: Iconic Club On The Champs-Elysées To Reopen This September

Iconic Parisian nightclub Queen on the Champs-Elysées is set to close it’s doors on August 31st, but hold off on the farewell party – they’re reopening at a brand new site across the street on September 2nd.

Once known as Le Central, this camp, glittery haven opened as Queen in 1992 with none other than famous Frenchie David Guetta on the decks as Artistic Director. Over the last two decades it’s become an institution in the French capital, until annual rental prices of €1.5 million threatened the future of the club.

The new venue, with an entrance on Rue Quentin-Bauchart, has space for up to 1200 revelers, mirrored walls and giant disco balls, while the current Artistic Director says the plan is now to try and compete with the world’s best nightclubs, as well as developing a Queen brand with merchandise.

Staying true to the heady days of 1992, a slightly more weather-beaten and now world-famous David Guetta will be taking to the decks once more at the September 2nd opening party.

Reports suggest that owner Philippe Fatien intends to invest more in acts now that the rent has been significantly reduced, with Madonna, Pharrell Williams and Kanye West being just a few of the names booked in for the next six months. In addition, the new-look club has plans to host cabaret dancers from Crazy Horse and Lido among others in various shows and performances.

Long live the Queen!
