In France, the Paris authorities are pushing to improve access for disabled people to nightclubs and bars from which they are often excluded. Last week, volunteers searched the town for nightclubs and bars accessible for disabled clients. Paris was rated 17th in a recent survey on accessibility in France, far behind towns like Nantes and Grenoble.
