This converted coach station is a temple of drum ‘n’ bass, jungle and dubstep, but it’s not all one note. You can shake your stuff to minimal techno and house beats, but also to groove, soul and rock concerts.
It’s a lovely venue, with a concert stage and a bar with comfy sofas – it’s just a shame it’s lost in the depths of the 19th arrondissement, but that does mean that it draws an authentic underground crowd. There’s no Parisian hype here, but rather techno partygoers (‘teuffeurs’) out for the sound and nothing but the sound. They’re often drawn to Glazart by Jungle Juice (for those who love heavy basslines). In the summer, the outdoor area is transformed into a sandy beach with pastis, pétanque and merguez: a winning combination.
