A lofty bar/restaurant/club trifecta, Djoon is where Motown meets the Seine and stylish Frenchies get funky.
High painted ceilings complete with Italian frescoes à la the Sistine Chapel create an airy vibe in the large dining area, as chic professionals gather on the egg-shaped yellow chairs to peruse the international soul food lunch deals.
Those looking for some fresh air can step out to the patio, where fashionable girlfriends relax in front of the massive street-side windows, sipping caipirinhas in the shade of white umbrellas.
Although the restaurant trends upscale during the day, on Fridays and Saturdays the separate club next door draws the hipster contingent, who shuffle their feet around the trompe l’oeil pillars that form a stately backdrop for the DJs spinning funk, deep house, UK garage, and disco.
Partiers in vintage togs take to the dance floor, or join the culturally diverse groups of music lovers and creative types who gather over champagne at the long, curved bar.
With little competition in the area, the space normally avoids the cramped scene found at other popular clubs, giving the dedicated patrons at Djoon more room to get down and Djance.
Chic groups of girls, artsy coeds, trendy young professionals, hipsters, sophisticated couples, and party girls, mid 20s+.
Lounge music in the restaurant. DJ spins mostly funk, deep house, UK garage, and disco. Occasional events on Thursdays and Sundays, including after-work salsa lessons followed by DJs and dancing in the club.
Caribbean, Korean, South Indian, and American fusion cuisine with a French twist, including gumbo, coconut curry fish, and lemon curd.
Cover charge €10+. Appetizers €11–€14, entrées €18–€24, two courses €17.50. Beer €4.20, wine €5–€8/glass or €18–€86/bottle, cocktails €9–€12, champagne €10/glass or €80/bottle, coffee €2.50.
Chic and artsy: button-downs, smart jeans, and office wear in the restaurant; clean t-shirts, jeans, and vintage party dresses for the club.
Friday and Saturday nights for a posh dinner and dancing till dawn.
Rue de Rennes is a great shopping street for the very best in French accessories, shoes, and lingerie.
