Several major cultural institutions of Paris are within reach from the Zazie Hotel.

L’Opéra Bastille. Fifteen minutes’ walk from the hotel, you can buy tickets at the opera house’s ticket offices without booking in advance. See big lyrical productions in the Grande Salle and concerts and recitals in the Amphitheatre or Studio.

Since 2005, the La Cinémathèque Française occupies a magnificent building designed by architect Frank Gehry in the Jardins de Bercy. Cinema enthusiasts will love its museum, exhibitions and film projections.

The Palais de la Porte Dorée, a magnificent Art Deco complex, which houses the Immigration Museum and the Tropical Aquarium.

La Cartoucherie de Vincennes houses the legendary Théâtre du Soleil directed by Ariane Mnouchkine, as well as the Tempête, Aquarium and Épée de Bois theatres. A little further out but easy to access by Metro and bus.

And of course the l’Arena de Bercy with its massive concerts and events.
