Paris’ ice-rink is named after pre-war Norwegian ice-skating champion Sonja Heinie, credited with the invention of certain performance styles in figure skating. On Wednesdays, Fridays and weekends, don your leotards and leg-warmers and show Paris just how graceful you can be. During the weekend night sessions (which run until 12.30am), the music cranks up a notch and coloured lights ripple over the ice in psychedelic splashes. When the skating’s over, Bercy Village, home to bars, restaurants and the UGC multiscreen cinema complex, is just a ten-minute walk away. Skates and pads are available for hire. Access to Patinoire Sonja Heinie is via Porte 28.
