  • Clubs in Paris will open this weekend, with additional security measures in place following last Friday's attacks. Owners of nightspots in the French capital have rallied together, issuing a joint statement today that reads: "Nothing and no one will stop Paris from dancing." It adds: "Music, dancing, sharing, meeting, social bonds [and] diversity are values that we carry and that these terrorists have targeted for destruction." The statement confirmed that the city's major clubs, including A La Folie Paris, Badaboum, Batofar, Concrete, Djoon, Faust, Glazart, Gibus, Java, La Machine Du Moulin Rouge, Le Queen, Rex Club, Social Club, Showcase, Virgo, Wanderlust, YoYo - Palais de Tokyo and Zig Zag, will all reopen this week after closing in the immediate aftermath of the attacks at Le Bataclan and other bars and restaurants last Friday. Additional security measures will be in place at clubs this weekend. Though no specific details have been provided on the measures, France's federation of cabarets and nightclubs published several recommendations, which include minimising the use of outdoor spaces like queues and smoking areas.
