Chalet de la Porte Jaune
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Squirrelled away on an island deep in the Bois de Vincennes, the Chalet de la Porte Jaune is a kind of paradise lost. Lost, that is, to all but Napoleon III – who used it as a hunting pavillon – and the hordes of ravers who flock here every summer to attend the aptly named Marvellous Island Festival. The annual knees-up set a precedent, and the chalet is becoming a favoured venue for club promoters looking to try something different. If you're more of a stroller than a raver, by day the island is a lovely destination for a family outing, a bike ride or an all-you-can-eat brunch (steep at €38).
