Cosy venues

Where you seem up close to the artist

Classic venues on a human scale

Le Café de la Danse, Le Divan du Monde, La Boule Noire, Nouveau Casino, Zèbre de Belleville..

To get closer to your favourite singers or bands, there is nothing better than a small venue. Here, concerts are usually warm and friendly with a restricted audience … ideal conditions for a true encounter with the artist. This type of venue usually programmes both top artists as well as upcoming ones.

Very hush-hush addresses

La Bellevilloise, Le Piano vache, Salle Les Voûtes...

Here you are in close proximity to the artist. No gesture or emotion will escape you. Sometimes, you may even exchange a glance that could make you believe that he (or she) was singing only for you. The venue is tiny, the stage too, and you are taken good care of by the staff which makes you feel quite privileged. The alchemy has its effect and the evening becomes a memorable one. And in addition, it is also possible to have a free concert drink at these venues.
