Le Trabendo concert and music venue
Le Trabendo is a music concert venue and club which is located at the Parc de la Villette park in Paris, close to the Cite de la Musique and plays host to international bands and stars just like the Rolling Stones who played a gig here in 2012.
About Le Trabendo in Paris
The Trabendo is a small club and concert venue that only has a capacity of a maximum of 700 people at any one time, and you would not think this would be a music concert venue that has played host to international bands and stars.
Yet it most certain has with bands such as The Strokes, Metallica and as we mentioned above, the Rolling Stones and this club has hosted some of the greatest figures of jazz, rhythm and blues.
In fact, February 2013 sees Kevin Costner and the Modern West playing along with another gig from the Robert Cray Band, but as you can no doubt imagine, security is extremely tight, especially when they are paying host to international stars, and as you would no doubt expect, the cost of each concert will vary from around €20 up to around €40 depending on who is playing.
It is easily recognisable by the bright red construction and building known as a one of the follies that was designed by the architect Bernard Tschumi, that surrounds the club Trabendo, which give it a unique appearance.
Inside it is just like virtually any other club or music venue with soft yet dark colours that makes it intimate and friendly, yet has a luminescent bar the actual music is not too loud, so doesn’t become distorted like at some venues.
There is of course a bar and this opens one hour before a concert starts and the bar plus the terrace remains open until late after the concert has finished and it has a private staircase that adds to the whole almost futuristic atmosphere.
Access to The Trabendo Concert Venue
Located within the Parc de la Villette in the 19th Arrondissement, this small music club in Paris is situated near to the Cite de la Musique, yet opposite is the green park area and then the Grande Halle, which when you look at the history of the Parc de la Villette, was once the old abattoir.
Tickets for concerts should be purchased online at their website well in advance, as being a small music venue, this is a popular place for a night out in Paris, especially when they have international stars playing.
But please do bear in mind that unfortunately due to stairs Le Trabendo is not accessible to the disabled and is also only accessible to adults.
The nearest Metro station is the Porte de Pantin stop and you would need line 5, but do bear in mind that during a weekday the last metro is just before 1am and the first one does not start again until after 5.30am, but at a weekend the last metro is approximately 1.30am.
However, you will find that there is also a night bus called the Noctilien Bus de Nuit that passes by the Parc de la Villette approximately every 20 to 30 minutes throughout the night as well as going to other main destinations around Paris such as the Charles de Gaulle airport.
