Part of the massive Les Docks (or Cité de la Mode et du Design) fashion and design complex, Wanderlust is another Paris hotspot from the team behind Club Silencio.

Sitting pretty on the left bank of the Seine, the riverside playground incorporates modest-sized restaurant (overpriced, but OK-ish) and bar/club spaces in addition to a huge 1,600 square meter terrace that is used for everything from open air film screenings (Friday evenings) to yoga sessions (Sunday mornings) before taking the overflow of party-seekers coming for a top-notch electronica-disco-dance line-up at night.

Free and open most days from midday until six in the morning, there’s something on offer for everybody. The daytime crowd sees a diverse mix of 20 and 30-something coolhunters dropping by for a bite and drink, while the late night clubbers are a somewhat younger, studenty lot – predominantly straight but gay-friendly enough with a large contingent of sexually ambigious hipsters.
