Paris nightclubs to reopen this weekend subsequent to terror attacks
A mere ten months following the Charlie Hebdo attacks, Paris was hit even harder following a series of coordinated ISIS attacks that killed upwards of 100 people. Militants attempted to instill fear in the city’s most progressive citizens by targeting bars and restaurants frequented by Paris’s younger population, zeroing in on the historic Bataclan theater in the process. A state of emergency was called shortly after.
Unsurprisingly, France is a resilient nation and its courageous citizens refuse to live in fear. Paris’ most prominent nightclubs recently released a joint statement confirming that they will reopen this coming weekend:
“Nothing and no one will stop Paris from dancing….Music, dancing, sharing, meeting, social bonds [and] diversity are values that we carry and that these terrorists have targeted for destruction”
A La Folie Paris, Badaboum, and Zig Zag are just a handful of clubs scheduled to reopen – but with added security measures. No official announcements have been made as of yet, but a guide containing recommended security measures during the continued state of emergency can be found here.
