Not many club-goers dare to venture east of Montmartre, but those who do will discover La Bellevilloise, a large multilevel event space featuring a café and market that caters to foodies and young professionals out enjoying the sunny weather by day, and a party room that brings in hip bohemians for music and dancing by night.

Built in 1877 as a co-op and political and cultural center, the space was renovated in 2005 to host media events, art shows, film screenings, and meetings for the surrounding French Moroccan and Algerian community.

While the Saturday morning's organic market is a big draw, the main focus of the complex is La Halle Aux Oliviers, a beautiful café popular for weekend brunches.

Abundant seating and a gorgeous iron and glass ceiling filled with olive trees welcome guests in the main dining room, while the rooftop terrace provides umbrella-covered deck tables and a relaxing atmosphere perfect for summertime refreshments.

Those looking for nighttime action can check out the basement projection room and dance floor, where concerts and 80s nights are held for a lively and unpredictable crowd of bohemians and Belleville locals.

It may be off the beaten path for most, but those who decide to make the trek to La Bellevilloise are in store for a one-of-a-kind Parisian experience.

Tip from Emma:

If you find the Sunday prix fixe brunch a bit pricey, check the place out on Saturday instead. That way you can browse the market and then enjoy the café’s sunny terrace and more affordable à la carte menu.

  • Crowd

    Bohemians in their late 20s and 30s for the dance club, and artists, students, and bobos of all ages for the café.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Over four hundred events a year including electronic and world music concerts, film festivals, art openings, and cross-medium collaborative parties. Occasional theme parties including 80s dance nights on summer Fridays.

    Soul Cook Wednesdays with food inspired by the onstage artists, and live jazz at Sunday brunch. Organic market on Saturdays.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Weekday café menu emphasizes Moroccan flavors. Sunday brunch features a classic French menu of breads, salads, and meat dishes. Catering available.

    Cover charge €10–€15 for events. Café menu €6.50–€21, full brunch €29, child’s brunch €13. Beer €3+, wine €3+, cocktails €6–€12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Event specific, but generally casual, bohemian, vintage finds, and jeans.

Get into the swing of things!
Amanda D. Apr 8, 2013
My take: I love it when I discover a great local’s secret hangout! La Bellevilloise, a hidden gem somewhere in Belleville, is a unique and quirky place rich in culture and character. From the moment I stepped into La Bellevilloise and saw people queuing to get in, dressed in 1950 swing outfits, I felt like I was transported back into time and I knew it would be an interesting night. The scene: The venue is large and multifunctional. It’s a bar, restaurant, club and exhibition space, and is used for everything from concerts, festivals, art exhibitions, screenings to fashion shows. The night I was there was a swing festival. A blast from the past as clientele dressed to the nines in their swing gear showed off their best moves on the dance floor to some funky tunes. On other nights, young, hipster locals meet up with friends for dinner and drinks while watching the live performances on stage, then head downstairs to the club to dance it all off! Cocktails and cuisine: The restaurant serves local food to fuel up on before a crazy night of drinking and dancing. The bars serve the usual; beer, wine, cocktails, champagne and liquor with mixers. Prices: This is not one of the cheapest places in Paris, but in my opinion worth every cent. There is no cover charge for the restaurant but there’s one for the club, concerts and festivals. The fee depends on the event. Drinks aren’t cheap and no free drinks are included in the cover charge. Beer: from 5€ Cocktails: 9€ Wine: 5€ Liquor with mixers: from 8€ What to wear: La Bellevilloise is unique and so are the clientele. Their dress shows their individuality. The common style of dress is hipster. Dress up for theme nights! Insider info/When to go: Check their website for events, theme nights and what kind of music they’ll be playing that night.

La Bellevilloise is a venue of many faces. One day it may be an art gallery, on another a bright restaurant and cafe. That night it's a raging concert, but it's always La Bellevilloise. You just never know with this impulsive, lively discovery that has so much to offer. Walking first through a quaint garden-like alleyway, you enter the interior that feels like an modern adoring turn on old 20s dance halls, true to it's original roots. There are several bars at which to get decently priced drinks, an upper level terrace and a subterranean dance and performance hall. This place is a temptation to explore, experience and enjoy.
