Why locals love it

You would never guess what’s hidden behind the huge black door of this place. A bar, restaurant, gallery and museum (amongst other things), it serves as an outlet for African culture and sustainable development projects, and is one of the most exotic places in Paris. On weekends it’s packed with people sipping signature cocktails.

Why you should visit it

It’s not often you’ll find a place this big in the city! Its uniqueness also resides in its underground atmosphere, just like in Berlin or San Francisco. As you pass through the door, a long corridor leads you to two huge rooms where you can sit on recycled sofas and chairs with world music rocking the stereo. The entrance fee is up to you!

Special tip

Come before 8 pm on weekends. Don't get a Ti Punch if you don't like strong drinks. Try the cheap and tasty food. Return your cup to get €1 back!
