There’s a cool Brooklyn Flea-esque outdoor pop-up in Paris right now called Wanderlust. But seriously, “cool outdoor pop-up” probably doesn’t do it enough justice. Not only is it along the Seine (although in the 13th arrondissement), but it also has free workshops & activities like hair tutorials and yoga classes every Saturday, and even turns into an outdoor club at night. In fact, according to T Magazine, the people who came up with the idea are actually behind Parisian night clubs Social Club and Silencio.
Rio and I checked out the “Brunch Bazaar” event there this past Sunday and it was brimming with Brooklyn hipster doppelgängers. We couldn’t decide where the “hipster” look originated – whether it was Brooklyn hipsters imitating French bobos or the other way around. Either way – we definitely were the square ones there!
Check out the Brooklyn doppelgängers working the bar. BTW – those drinks were overpriced – 19 euros for a Heineken and une coupe de champagne!
One of the food stalls at Wanderlust. Next to it, they sold vegetarian tarts. Thank god because I was starving and everything was meat, meat, meat… as usual in France.
Open Wednesdays to Sundays from 12pm to 6pm until October – definitely check it out if you’re in Paris. And the club is open from 6pm to 6am.
