It's time to enjoy the mild temperatures and long days by venturing out of your cocoon. More than ever, the streets are buzzing with activities to satisfy all tastes. Discover now what the city has in store for you this weekend.


Where to eat: Chez RORI, during its opening week

Everyone was waiting for it, and it's finally here. Since the beginning of this week, the little brother and neighbor of Bouche, created by Angela Kong and Antoine Bernardin, has opened its doors. RORI combines the atmosphere of a classic New York pizzeria with that of a diner, all enhanced with a modern touch and that certain something unique to the 11th arrondissement of Paris. In a unique setting designed by Atelier Leymarie Gourdon, with shiny red floors, lacquered tables, a glass counter, and leather benches paired with wooden and raw material elements. If you drop by this weekend, on the occasion of the music festival, the new spot is teaming up with Grammes, Shinding Nights, and Cure Needed to offer a tailor-made evening for foodies and music lovers.

Where to have fun: Head to Ground Control for the Benchmark Festival

Originally organized by Nozbone skateshop on the forecourt of Diderot University in the 13th arrondissement of Paris from 2007 to 2017, what started as a simple contest has transformed into a festival in 2021 and 2022, with concerts, a village of stands, and activities around skateboarding such as screenings or initiations. On June 21 and 22, the festival moves to Ground Control, this 6500m2 space that was originally an SNCF sorting hall, and will host two days of festivities to celebrate Go Skateboarding Day and the Music Festival. On the program: skate sessions, concerts, and DJ sets, all orchestrated by Bad Brains in collaboration with Rinse, Converse, and Spotify.

To launch this initiative, it partners with the alternative beauty concept store, Oh My Cream, to reinvent this space, which has become a true living area. For the occasion, the Oh My Cream team has carefully selected around sixty decorative and everyday objects, both functional and colorful, to beautify this intimate space, all available online as well as in their store on Rue de Saintonge.
