Grande Halle de la Villette
With its exposed metal girders and huge skylights, this former cattle market in the middle of the Parc de la Villette is a classic example of the style of Victor Baltard, a famous architect from the Second French Empire. Now fully renovated and a listed historical heritage site, the building has become a top spot for culture and social diversity.
The Grande Halle is a favourite haunt of families, teens and locals alike, who come to enjoy events, spectacular exhibitions, concerts, shows and festivals like the Rencontres des cultures urbaines, where dancers from around the world perform their latest hip-hop routines.
Between an expo and a gig, La Petite Halle is definitely the place to go if you want to enjoy a drink and an authentic wood-fired pizza, or just sit outside and chat under the cover of the roof.
