Don’t forget that Jules is actually an uncle! He loves spending his Wednesday afternoons with his sister’s son, Théo, whom he can’t help but shower with gifts. Being the avid art and music fan that he is, Jules takes him to discover an unusual place, right in the heart of beautiful, bohemian Paris: La Péniche Antipode.
In 2002, an investment by the company Abricadabra transformed this old freight barge into a theatre dedicated to children and their parents. Anchored on the Villette basin, it shows a range of different dramatic or dance acts, as well as the occasional concert.
Jules isn’t averse to grabbing a few drinks whilst there either, his nephew going for a refreshing lemonade while he would choose a Brazilian Maté or, if it’s a really hot day, a Love Potion (apple, blackcurrant, strawberry etc). At la Péniche Antipode, all of the products and drinks are from independent sources and are fair trade, which is why Jules likes it so much. It is just another reason for people to discover this artistic and laid back venue.
Open every day from 4 pm, from 10 am during weekends .
55, Quai de la Seine
