There is plenty to keep us busy in Paris, especially in the run-up to summer, but what everyone’s talking about right now is ELECTRIC, the new cultural hub that has just opened in the rather non-descript neighbourhood around Porte de Versailles (15th arrondissement).
Self-proclaimed “alternative cultural hub”, ELECTRIC comprises an impressive space of 1,000m² and a terrace boasting spectacular 360° views over Paris. The space itself has a cyber-forest theme created by French designer, Mathieu Lehanneur. Adorned with giant ebony tree trunks and equipped with top sound and video equipment for the events that will take place here, this new venue will host private events, like the Kavinsky launch party as well as in-house events open to the public such as concerts and parties, exhibitions and various other happenings – a food truck event as well as a pool party on the roof have been evoked although nothing has been confirmed for the moment.
Located on the fourth floor of the Parc des Expositions (a large venue where a number of fairs take place), the unused space was discovered by a Paris-based duo, Damien (aka John Michael Ramirez) and Romain, who already organise a range of cultural events in Paris.
