Known to inveterate party-goers as ‘La Terrasse Experimentale’, Les Terrasses Kréyol, is a pop-up club in a Caribbean restaurant on the outskirts of the city near the Clignancourt flea market. Set up on the initiative of music collectives like Syndrøm, Roofnacht, and P2Z,this unique venue is super fun while being super serious about the music.
On arrival, you pay a small entry fee before heading upstairs. The space itself is kitsch beyond imagination, decorated with stars, black and red pouffes and lighting worthy of a cheesy ’80s discotheque. But all this is quickly forgotten at the sight – a rare one in Paris – of two huge heated, couch-lined terraces. Despite the fact that the venue is a restaurant by day, the sound system has never disappointed: most of the organisers come with their own high-tech equipment. Inside, the party gets wild, and stays wild well into the next day. At Les Terrasses Kréyol, ‘one night only’ is often good until lunchtime the next day.
