La Scène Bastille has been done up and re-launched by the same group behind the Panic Room bar, and is now the Badaboum. Inside there’s a fashionably simple retro-industrial look, a new sound system that makes the light-strewn ceiling shake, a restaurant and cocktail/tapas bar open to all from 7pm, and a secret room upstairs with a bachelor pad allure. Altogether, the Badaboum has succeeded in giving new life to the space. We like the reasonable prices, the high-class ambiance, and the intimate, intense gigs in the 350-person concert space, its stage almost at crowd level. Nights kick off with gigs from emerging pop-rock artists, then comes clubbing with a good range of French and international techno DJs.
