A old train station
transformed into a Jazz Club
12 November 2017
To turn an abandoned train station into a Jazz Club, here was the crazy challenge that Julien de Casabianca-Caumer took up in 2014. After three years of refurbishment, the musical bar La Gare is finally born on the last 25th of August, for the greatest pleasure of music lovers and friendly atmosphere amateurs!
The old gare du pont de Flandre in Paris, closed in 1934 and which has been used as a squat for years by a group of artists, gave itself a second youth and turned into a bistro with a family and relaxed atmosphere. Restored during three years, the place has been entirely redesigned. From the facade covered by a giant collage by Julien de Casabianca, to the walls kept in state and the old wide street paved that leads to the bar, nothing has been left to chance.
And it seems that the young artist won his bet: La Gare, only recently opened, already starts to impose itself as a must in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, the jazz club boosting, attracting and federating music lovers looking for a friendly and informal evening with a good spirit. Everything is gathered: an atypical place filled with a casual, peaceful and dynamic atmosphere, where one may eat and drink for attractive prices (a beer for €2.60 and a plate of meat to share for €11)
while enjoying quality music.
In a few months, the 8-meter height under the ceiling basement will be reconfigured as an electro club that will also accommodate balls. To be followed…
