Wanderlust – Paris’ New Multi-Use Creative Space


A new creative hub positioning itself as a hybrid super-venue, ready to host all manner of social and cultural activities, has just opened on the banks of the river Seine in Paris. Called Wanderlust, it was conceived by the Savoir Faire Group – the hospitality entrepreneurs who also created American film director David Lynch’s Parisian nightclub, Silencio (see report: Club Silencio, Paris). 

Designed by Paris-based architects Jakob + Macfarlane, the venue aims to blur the boundaries between relaxation, leisure and culture. Key features include an open-air cinema that can accommodate up to 80 guests, a club, a bar and a restaurant run by French chef Benjamin Darnaud. At 1,600 sq m, the venue also boasts the largest terrace in the city. 

Ensuring that the space isn’t dominated by nocturnal activities, there are also plenty of cultural activities on offer, such as early morning yoga classes, creative workshops, a vintage flea market and a shop.

For another example of a design conceived to offer urbanites (specifically creatives) a transcultural experience, see our thread on Apartment 58.
