A trendy bar invites internationally renowned hip-hop producers to spin tunes in its lively basement events space.
Rather than stomach the queues for the packed-out hip-hop nights at Wanderlust or the Bellevilloise, relaxed bar Le Jeune may well be preferable. While drinks don’t drift far from your typical international cocktail fare (€10 a pop), the DJ line-ups are some of the best going if hip-hop’s your thing (recent highlights from the programme include Stéphane Ashpool, R-Ash, Teki Latex and even A$AP Mob’s J. Scott). The basement is where all the action happens, as the DJs cannily mix vinyl-heavy sets in the dimly lit room and, later on, awkward head-bopping often gives way to twerking and occasionally quite amusing dance-offs.
