I will only be in Paris for one night and really want to make it memorable. What areas are best for nightlife, food, clubs etc.

Thanks in advance

When you say one night, what's your arrival and departure times?

Just a single night? Spend your evening in Montmartre (18th district). Lots of nice bars and restaurants. Alternatively, the 5th district imo is a good place to go. Loads of restaurants, esp. along Rue Saint-Jacques and adjacent streets, and not quite as touristic as Montmartre.

I go with bentivogli. Montmartre is just wonderful and for me the most pleasurable areas of Paris away from 'most' of the crowds. The restaurants, bistros, street entertainers and artists make the whole little corner of such a huge city, nice and easy for everything.

I would suggest the centre of Paris (1-7 arrondissements)! Anyway, I think that Paris is the best city in the world so anywhere you go would be great! Have a great time!:)

So you have a full day or so.

My personal favourite would be 5eme, at Latin Quarter and thereabouts.
- Bustling and full of life (it's not just all tourists here, plenty of French too, likely students of Sorbonne/EPSCI etc)
- Close enough to a couple of sights if you want to do some sightseeing (e.g. Notre Dame just across the river, Louvre and Musee d'Orsay not too far away either, there's also Pantheon and Luxembourg Garden in the quarter)
- Plenty of places to eat and Rue Moufftard has plenty of reasonably priced restaurants/cafes
- Jazz clubs in the evening, usually in small bars, so the gigs are live and intimate
