Ground Control: return of the 6000m² magical multicultural place


It's back! 6,000m² of eclecticism in the heart of the 12th arrondissement, this time for a period of 2 years!

A nice bar in an old industrial wasteland, but not only. Third place or cultural centre with free and curious programming, restaurants, shops and workshops.

Yes, it is a real event that will be triggered by the inauguration of this multidisciplinary and independent living space. Ground Control regains its 1500m² of terrace and is even implanted for the first time, inside the Halle Charolais, offering 4500m² of covered spaces!

Inside, several areas for eating out:

Halle à Manger: to share and taste around the great tables d' hôte in wood; with Faggio (traditional pizza), Mr Zhao (contemporary Chinese), Solina (fresh pasta with ancient wheat), Chilam (100% homemade Mexican), Table nali (fusion Africanan) or even world cuisine concocted in turn by refugee chefs (La Résidence).

A wine bar (Le Décanteur) and a speakeasy cocktail bar in... an airplane (Long Courier), and Ground Grocery for snacking.

You can also find the "Free Zone", an event area with shops and markets, workshops and galleries.

Outside, you will also find 5 restaurants and a terrace-garden with a vegetable garden.

Ground Control Radio will be broadcasting for two years from 26 January in an ORTF-decorated studio.


Inauguration imminent, late January-early February!


Wednesday to Friday: 12h-00h
