Nuba is the most famous rooftop discobar in Paris. A stunning view over la Villa Lumiere, good for a drink but not for eating.

Empty rooftop bar with a really bad atmosphere..not sure if it was because of the average music or because you have to pay €5 entry! Won't be going here again in a hurry.

the line to get in was long, but not longer than it would have been anywhere else, the drinks were reasonable given the location, 18+ unlike the club upstairs which was 21+, i made the mistake of getting into that line at first but realized...my mistake. the view is amazingMore

Bouncer along with some fake event planner on her IPhone said we "looked too young". We all said we would present proper ID since we were all over the age of 21 but they would not budge, the bouncer held open the rope to let...us out the entire time . We were 8 attractive women waiting in line for 20 minutes and because the girl at the door was jealous she would not let us in. They claimed it was "only over 30". What club wants only 30+ year olds? Maybe it was senior citizen night. I am in the promoting business and this is not how that works. It was extremely agist and I will never be returning. Do not EVER attend this bar. They will discriminate against you. I would rate 0 stars if I could because I have never been so offended. I would expect an apology but I know I will not be getting one from such disrespectful people who work at this establishment.More

We were a group of 8 and queued for about 10 minutes. When we reached the entrance, the bouncers acted weirdly, asking questions like "Where are you going?". When we replied Nuba, they pushed us out of the queue. What? It wasn't the right answer?...When we asked what was going on, they evasively answered that we were too young (we were all 23-26). We proposed to show our IDs, to which he replied that it's not necessary and didnt let us through. I believe you cannot legally do this. Or at least have a proper policy of entrance. Totally not recommend this place!More

Had a great night out when i went to Nuba - I went with a group of friends and we had a fantastic time. There is a huge seating area outside to chat and meet people, great music playing and good bars that serve the...busy crown quickly. It's a lovely location over looking the river - worth the queue to get in!More

Went there twice, really like the view, the music. Great rooftop and the restaurant is really good, they even had an argentinian wine. I recommend this place if you're visiting during summertime.

Came to this nightclub with hope of a free entry and excellent music, could not have been more wrong. Was asked to leave the queue with 2 males for no reason and refused to answer any questions we had. A group of 8 behind us...(5 female, 3 male) were also asked to leave and weren't given a reason. Could not comment on the inside as I only passed 1 of the many levels of security and couldn't even get into the second floor. Freddy Adu this one, full of promise but a huge let down at the vital time. Would rather have spent my time shaving a dolphin or repairing a disposable camera, both of which were a more valuable use of my time than queueing for this joke of a business.More

I celebrated my 25th birthday here, it is really difficult to contact this place so I had no idea what to expect. Cover was free which was awesome, as well as coat check (with a tip). The setting is nice, with a nice rooftop patio...overlooking the Seine, music inside and outside, but the DJ was terrible! My friends even asked him if he could do something special for my birthday and he flat out refused. Drinks are outrageously priced as well! Won't be coming back, mediocre night with music that gave us a headache!More

staff were pleasant enough although service was a little slow. the place was clean and tidy and is a nice atmosphere for lunch or late night drinks with the view, its quite hard to find and quite quirky but worth it and it is signposted...a little as you get within the vicinity. the portion sizes are huge! quite tasty but not the best but wasn't too expensive either. would suit all crowdsMore

Really nice to be able to enjoy an outside drink on the rooftop and not be suffocating like in most clubs. Note that I was only going there by night, but I would really recommend it to anyone looking for an nice club where you...don't feel like your head is about to implode. Only setback: the price of the drinks - then again, no different from regular clubs.More

A group of us were recommended to come here for a night out in Paris by a local and we were not disappointed - it turned out to be our best night in Paris. There was great electronic music playing late in the night and...it was full of locals not tourists. Definitely worth a visit.More

A nice place to come in the late afternoon with a great bunch of friends but the food and drinks is too expensive compared to what you get. I would however not queue to come to Nüba. Better to come early before the clubbing even...starts and skip the line. The staff is not particularly friendly.More

We went for a brunch with my friends on a sunday. Once we had a table, we had to wait 1h30 to have our table cleaned. Just for this, we had to complain and shout several times. Then waited another hour to be served the...most basic brunch menu. The staff is not only incompetent but also rude. Worst experience ever!More

Liked the atmosphere here, nice rooftop bar with view over Seine river plus It's free to get in. We got there bout 10pm and was hardly any queue but when we came out at 1am the queue to get in was neverending, so get there...early to avoid wait! Bouncers will check bags for any drinks you might be trying to smuggle in, but they can put unopened bottles aside for you if you ask and you can get them back when you leave. Drinks are quite expensive (5€ soft drink, 9€ pint beer (and its cheap watery beer), 12€ small cocktail, but its expected and at least you don't have to pay in. Different dj's every weekend, they even have a restaurant and do brunches too. Good night out.More
