The Badaboum is first and foremost a reputed concert venue in the Bastille neighbourhood. The very best of avant-garde pop, rock and electro are broadcast under its trademark neon, geometric-shaped lights. The selective programming offered at a competitive price attracts packed crowds of young music-lovers in the know. After the concert, the room shifts to clubbing mode, with a good mix of house and techno DJs, perfect for dancing the night away. Sunday nights are usually gay nights.
Night and day
The Badaboum is also a daytime destination. The Canteen opens its doors at noon to the chef’s mix of street food and bistro classics. In a minimalist décor (raw walls, vintage furniture and rugs) and a no-frills atmosphere, you can taste fresh house specialties at a good price, on a canteen tray!
At night, the restaurant transforms into a cocktail bar serving original creations imagined by the house mixologist. Foodies are also in for a treat, with a mouth-watering gourmet tapas menu. Want a little more intimacy? Head to the secret room on the first floor, decorated like a 1970’s bachelor pad. Dripping in chic vintage décor, it is the ideal spot to meet up with friends, and is available for private events.
