On the banks of Canal St-Martin, this massive graffiti- and mural-covered concrete complex is Paris’s coolest creative hub. Art exhibitions and installations are put on by its artists-in-residents, who hang out at its chilled restaurant and bar. But it's best known for its farsighted music policy, with an impressive record of breaking DJ and musician talent from across the city, country, continent and beyond. You can also catch gigs by established artists, and sometimes seriously big names who drop in unexpectedly to do secret warm-up gigs. If you're looking to take home with you some musical inspiration Point Ephemere is one of the best Paris bars to hear up and coming and breakout artists.
