As I was investigating on places I wanted to discover in this beautiful city, I was a little confused when I stumbled upon the description of La Bellevilloise, however, reviews turned out to be true!
This venue is as versatile as it gets with all types of events going on. Earning its description as a cultural fortress since long ago, this place is truly one of a kind.
A little bit of history...
It's story starts around 1877 when a group of 20 labourers started the Belleville cooperative with a small grocery shop. By the time before WWII it had 9,000 members and it was known as "The House of the Bellevilloise People."
During this period La Bellevilloise was a cradle for numerous cultural and artistic projects, collaborating in "The popular University of La Semaille", a library formed by about 4,ooo books, "La Muse Bellevilloise" an avant-garde artist group, a symphony called "L'Harmonie Bellevilloise" and one of the first movie theaters in Paris called "Les étoiles".
This has made La Bellevilloisea hub for art, cultrue, innovation and experimentation that translate to the events that are hosted to this day. This place is dear to my heart and it has been the setting for great nights of music and dancing. I would very much recommend the place!
