About Wanderlust entertainment venue

Wanderlust is a restaurant and an entertainment venue in Paris that was started by the founders of Silencio and is spread out over an area of approximately 1,600 metres squared.  It has large panoramic windows from the inside space of over 380 metres squared looking out to the very large wooden decked terrace, which is located on the quayside level of Les Docks - Cite de la Mode et du Design.

The idea behind this venue was to provide free concerts and other forms of entertainment in Paris, which means that even entry to the nightclub is free and you can join in with activities such as yoga, which is held on the terrace on a Sunday during the summer months.

In fact, Wanderlust is definitely a summer venue for the majority of the full programme, and during the winter months, you will find that only the night club is open for a couple of days each week, drawing a young crowd for the latest in techno and electronic dance music.

But the views from the terrace over the River Seine while sipping a cocktail are well worth it, especially at sunset or even sunrise, and the events programme is varied from cinema or fashion shows through to documentaries, hip-hop lessons and much more, yet these take place between the months of around April until October.

The Cuisine at the Wanderlust restaurant

The Wanderlust Restaurant is only open from spring through to autumn and has an a la carte menu with a variety of starters and desserts that are an average cost of €12 per serving.
Main courses are split into two different categories and you could enjoy beef tartare, stuffed squid and vegetables or entrecote steak with bearnaise sauce served for two people.  Yet under the second section called Les Classiques you could opt for fish and chips, burger and chips, a Caesar salad or tagliatelle carbonara to name a few, and these all range in cost from around €16 up to €26 per person as of 2018.

However there is also a brunch option served on a Saturday and Sunday with different choices called the Brunch Classique, Le Brunch Wanderlust or Le Brunch Detox.  And items on offer include things such as eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit salad, crepes, pastries, etc, but children under 12 get a brunch for less than half the cost.
