Located on the banks of the Canal de l'Ourcq, La Rotonde serves as both a restaurant and a cultural venue in the neighborhood. With a fine program of evenings, open-air events and other convivial events, it's one of the addresses to discover on the banks of the Bassin de la Villette.

A true cultural space, the venue was taken over in 2012 by the Cultplace teams, with the aim of transforming the former building into the ideal venue for Parisian nights. Today, the venue offers a varied program of events for everyone, throughout the week, day and night.

The Rotonde Stalingrad was designed byarchitect Claude-Nicolas Ledoux in the 17th century, between 1784 and 1788. At the time, the building was used as a crossing point where a tax was levied on goods entering the city of Paris. Disused in 1791 during the French Revolution, the building became in turn a barracks for the municipal guard, a salt store... Before being taken over by Cultplace in 2009 and becoming a major artistic venue in the neighborhood. All week long, La Rotonde is the place to be for open-air events, disco and funk nights, and drinks on the terrace overlooking the Bassin de la Villette!

Entrance to La Rotonde is free and open to all, although you'll need to pay admission fees depending on the musical evening you wish to attend. La Rotonde is closed on Mondays and Sundays, and open from 5 p.m. and until 6 a.m. (on Fridays and Saturdays) on other days.
