Clubs in Paris will open this weekend, following several brutal terrorist attacks in the French capital last Friday.
Owners of prominent hot-spots 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 and Zig Zag have rallied together to release a public statement.
"Nothing and no one will stop Paris from dancing," they said. "Music, dancing, sharing, meeting, social bonds [and] diversity are values that we carry and that these terrorists have targeted for destruction."
France's federation of cabarets and nightclubs published several recommendations for public venues, which include minimising the use of queues and smoking areas, as well as placing additional security staff on-site.
