This is another artistic centre that opened recently, this time housed in a former 19th century music hall that later became an indoor roller coaster attraction (yeah, really). The temporary exhibitions can be hit or miss, but I like hanging out in the free, open-to-all library on the first floor where you can sit in the futurist media pods and flip through the latest arts, culture, music, design and architecture magazines. Their shelves are also filled with a growing endowment of books which seem to be acquired according to the theme of the aforementioned exhibitions. Internet access is available on a dozen or so PCs (or via WiFi on your own machine) and for gamers, there are a few consoles connected to largish plasma screens. The café upstairs, with its classic baroque meets retro-futurist interior, is a sight to behold.

Two wellknown japanese cafeteria, close to the Louvre and the Palais Royal. Gyoza and Lamen served all day long. The one Rue St Anne is more traditionnal, chiefs are cooking in front of you. Often packed, in case there is a long waiting line, go to the one Rue St Honoré, you will eat the same!

New shop in Paris opened by the Pain o Chokolat Crew (street hip hop crew). The Pigalle shop stocks exclusive street culture brands from across the globe. You’ll always meet a bunch of international people when visiting the shop. The Pigalle shop has the hype of street culture but the underlying feelings of a classic shop and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

Great place to start a day with a cup of coffee from the best roasters in the city, to eat lunch, to have an aperitif with your friends and to listen to a jazz concert every weekend.
