Travel Gay Reviews of L’ImpactLeave Review

  1. J Jose
    Wonderful, sexy, and fun

    “Visited Paris from Seattle and this place was sexy, fun, and welcoming. Hot and funny bartenders who made this American feel at home.“

  2. B Bob
    Fun Place!

    “Always a hot and hard experience here! Nice staff, one drink included, and lots of action.“

  3. D Dave
    Good old days

    “Used to be busy (mixed crowd). Went recently on Thursday evening 22-23h. There were almost no people while the cover went up to 18 euros.“

  4. G George
    it's been going downhill lately

    “This USED to be a hot place. Yes I understand its Paris but It's become too expensive 18 euro entry and drinks are expensive too... staff can be quiet moody and a bit unfriendly but I guess they're just being French. OK now the toilet facilities...they need to start putting paper towels there aren't any. And that one toilet needs an anal douching facility! They have to start up their game or the end will be near for them.“

  5. L Luke
    Totally overpriced

    “I know the place from the beginning. It was great at the time. I went there less and less, every year one EURO more entrance and one drink. Now they are at 18 EURO, the drink included does even not cover any more a big beer but a small one. Not talking about drink prices. Nobody takes a second one. For 21 euro you have access to the sauna. There is no paper to swipe hands or others anymore. This has an impact on the crowd. Young guys simply can not afford. Will not return and can not recommend.“

    • M Matt

      “Yes Luke I agree, it was great back in the day but now poor.“

  6. M Matthew
    The Grande Dame has Lost Her Impact!

    “I have been visiting this club since 2004 every time I come to Paris but last night I felt it had lost its edge. 18 euros is very expensive for entrance fee and they only serve bottles of lager now which is 7.20, really expensive. I was disappointed last night, it seems to be not as good as it once was.“

  7. J Jefferson
    Strictly naked?

    “Wasn't that strict about nudity but me and the boyfriend went total, some kept underwear or jocks on. Wide range of guys, all ages, interests and sizes. Friendly staff.“

  8. M Martin
    Cruisy place with nice bar men and lots of action downstairs

    “Heavy activities in the basement where you can have fun in cubicles or on a matresse, ideal for group action. First floor is bar style but no cloths on! All ages and both locals and tourists are coming together.“

  9. N Norman
    Great cruising bar

    “It was my first time in a full naked bar and it was exciting. If you like older guys or some younger guys which like older guys it's the right place.

    The staff is friendly and the guests also like foreigners.

    I had a lot of fun with normal guys which knows thats safer sex is important.“

  10. P Paris

    “This place is very expensive, and very small. The staff who lets you in can be quite mercenary. The bar staff are sexy. They don't wear any clothes except leather briefs. Sometimes, they wear jock straps with metal studs. You can order drinks with them and talk to them. But you are not allowed to touch. It's not allowed. It is only for your eyes only. They can only sell you drinks. As such, it is quite a tease.

    This makes all those hanging around the bar excited. Most of the French guys hanging around, speaking to the bartenders, even if limp, seem to be huge. French guys seem to have the biggest assets in Europe. They are all skinny, lean, lightly muscled, quite handsome and their assets are big. But for the price they charge, I find it is very expensive.

    Many French men love foreigners and English speakers. They often are romantic and invite you to cafe, or if they fancy you, they will invite you to a cinema. They will normally hold your hand, and kiss you and if they want fun, they normally invite you home immediately. French guys are very romantic and do not charge you any money to bring your home or expect any gifts.

    However, do not make mistake of falling in love with them. They are kinda psychotic and confused about love and if you fall in love with them, they will break your hearts. So, in the end, the heartbroken tourists end up frequenting places like these to recapture the lost romance, There is no wash room to wash up. “

    Wednesday night

    “No cover night on Wednesday's was busy. Friendly guy at the entrance and bar. Crowd is varied from old to young. Would prefer is it was a tad darker for anonymity. Overall I would recommend going there if you're a visitor you Paris looking for a good night of action.“

  12. T Tom
    A lot of action but a few hot men

    “I was there on Friday night from 00 to 4 am, it was crowded and a lot of action, free condoms and lub. If you like mature men that's your place, a few young men including myself, by 3 am it starts to get empty. To tell the truth, I got bored. But if you don't care who you're play with, you'll have a great time.“
