Oberkamp et Parmentier - 75011 Paris
République - Gares de l'Est et du Nord
Situated in the east of Paris, the Oberkampf district is known for its young, cosmopolitan, and party atmosphere. The area is full of cafes, restaurants, concert halls and nightclubs, and the streets Oberkampf, Jean-Pierre Timbaud and Parmentier are especially lively at night. Not to miss, the retro atmosphere of Café Charbon (1863), the mythical Nouveau Casino concert hall, and the rooftop terrace of the Perchoir Ménilmontant with panoramic views over the rooftops of Paris. Rue Oberkampf is also thronged with unusual places to see like the Cité du Figuier, Cité Griset, Cité de l'Industrie and Cité Durmar. A little further on, the Atelier des Lumières programmes spectacular immersive exhibitions.
