La Bellevilloise is the hidden gem of the 20th arrondissement. By day, it’s a fabulous art and cultural centre for exhibitions, film screenings, concerts and events, with a bright, ambiently lit cafe. But by night, it’s transformed into a trendy indie clubbing experience. Believe it or not, but the venue is, in fact, the site of Paris’ first workers’ co-operative and has been an important cultural landmark since 1877. Nowadays, it has two levels, a terrace and sofas to snuggle into with friends. Set up near Ménilmontant metro station, it’s nestled in a corner of Paris that’s quickly rising to become more hip and modern.
