Designed by Renaud Barillet (La Bellevilloise, La Rotonde Place Stalingrad, …) and developed by the Cultplace Cluster (A factory of cultural living spaces – cultplace.com) with the help of Fabrice Martinez, La Petite Halle is articulated around the Counter–Stage–Table trifecta:
It is a gathering place built around a long zinc bar, a performance venue that echoes le Parc de la Villette’s program, and a restaurant open day and night – all in one.
Visitors can come enjoy wood-fired pizza from our copper oven on pleasant, modern tables, comfortable seated in designer sofas, in a blended contemporary loft atmosphere (Eiffel-inspired metal structures, Parisian cobblestone, wood floors, large bay windows, second-hand style bar). La Petite Halle is at the crossroads of different activities: bar/restaurant, public shows, and private events.
At lunchtime or dinner, visitors can come enjoy wood-fired pizza, fresh pasta, or share a plate in the spirit of home-made “bistronomy” and fooding.
Reza Ackbaraly (Mezza, Jazz à Vienne) is behind the cultural programming of la Petite Halle. Whether it be through music, theater, comedy, or clubbing (dj sets or live-screenings) events, la Petite Halle aims to be a true broadcaster, in the heart of the park of La Villette.
