Salle Colonne

A HALL STEEPED IN HISTORY

Built in 1937 by the typographers’ guild as a venue for their general meetings, the Blanqui Hall was inaugurated by the Colonne Orchestra. This event proved remarkably prescient – the Blanqui Hall became the Blanqui Studio when Philips set up there to record the greats of French song: Jacques Brel (Ne me quitte pas), Serge Gainsbourg (Le poinçonneur des Lilas), Barbara (Göttingen), Juliette Greco (La javanaise)…

Les Frigos

A SPELLBINDING VENUE

In 1996, a group of people, mainly artists, formed an association to protect the four vaults located in rue de Tolbiac in the south of Paris and to create an adjoining garden. The ‘Les Voûtes’ (The Vaults) association was born. This historic site has become a venue for new and alternative art forms, debates and a host of cultural happenings.
