New “boîte de nuit” (nightclub)

  • 2009

It’s seems unbelievable but there is still life on the Left Bank. A new glam rock night club did open next to Cafe de Flore –  named La Montana.

It’s a mini-place, dark and cool gives us a biology lesson, lights in forms of skulls, black and white graphics of bones and animals on the walls, in a vaulted basement and very cosy.

The music programmation is perfect : rock, electro, pushy.

The only minor point is that this place became a favorite of “the people” which makes the entrance not so easy, unless you look gorgeous.
