Bercy Village and Papa Cabane, the 12th comes alive!
Publish on Tuesday, 11 July 2017 in Shopping
With summer at its height the neighbourhood of the Hotel Viator is pulsing with life! We invite you to discover the charming Bercy Village, its shops, its restaurants, its cobbled streets... Then, to take a relaxing break after your explorations, we suggest heading for the new pop-up bar that will be the essential place to chill this summer; Papa Cabane.
Bercy Village, an unusual Parisian location
Bercy Village is a shopping and leisure area nestled in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. A 15,000 m2 example of superbly creative urban renewal, it includes a number of shops and restaurants, plus leisure and entertainment facilities. Not far from the Hotel Viator, this lively district was once the site of the biggest wine market in the world, held from the end of the 18th century until the 20th. The former wine warehouses have been restored with an eye towards retaining their historical heritage, and repurposed while retaining their soul and authenticity.
Shopping and relaxation
Stroll around the Cour Saint-Emilion, an attractive cobbled street, and enjoy 38 brands dedicated to the art of living, eating well and discovery. Enjoy a shopping spree at Sandro, Maje, Fragonard, Nature & Découvertes or the FNAC before sitting down on the terrace for a drink and a snack. Bercy Village is also a place of entertainment thanks to numerous activities and attractions for young and old. Particular mention should be made of the educational activities for children offered each Wednesday. Everyone should experience Bercy Village.
Time for a Mojito at Papa Cabane
During the summer you’ll want to spend some relaxing moments at the Papa Cabane summer bar, a 1000 m2 temporary terrace located just behind the AccorHotels Arena. An eco-friendly place planted with aromatic herbs and fruit trees, it’s ideal for relaxing and enjoying tasty cocktails or an iced tea in the sun. Papa Cabane is open every day and every Thursday evening in its after work mode for Parisians wishing to de-stress after a hard day. In this small haven of peace with its furniture made up of pallets, deckchairs and soft cushions you can listen to a DJ set presented every Thursday and test your skills with table tennis or pétanque. Peckish? Treat your taste buds to a tempting snack from one of the three foods trucks parked here. On Thursday, one of them offers delicious culinary specialties from all over the world.
