Locality

Les Frigos was the first refrigeration building in Paris and is now heritage listed. A hive of artists’ and jazz studios, Les Frigos is one of only a few existing industrial buildings to have been saved thanks to local pressure groups and artists’ associations. You will often see people photographing the exterior of the building from the window seats and wandering through the corridors where the walls are constantly changing with graffiti artwork.

Bars by the Seine
MK2 Cinema Complex
Parc de Bercy

Just a few minutes walk brings you to the new Bibliothèque Nationale François Mitterrand housing 12 million books, consisting of four L-shaped buildings representing open books. In front of the library, a flotilla of music bars and clubs are moored on the Seine, with bars and restaurants lining the banks. Visit the Batofar and the Guinguette Pirate for a taste of local life. The MK2 Art house Cinema is situated on the bridge where rue de Tolbiac and rue Nueve de Tolbiac meet at the Bibliothèque Nationale François Mitterrand. The arty Jean-Michel Wilmotte complex offers original language movies along side shops and cafes.

A new Open air swimming pool and gym complex floats on the Seine by the Quai de la Gare. With the newly opened Metro 14 Bibliothèque line, you are now only 10 minutes from the centre of Paris. The high-tech, driverless line 14 Métro and new RER station trains run literally every 2-3 minutes putting many worldwide train systems to shame.
