BOULOGNE-BILLANCOURT, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2014) - Going out to listen to a great little band while sipping a glass of wine has to be one of the most gratifying ways to spend a night in Paris. Of course, finding that great band and a venue that's as welcoming as it is stylish can be two sticking points, even for those immersed in the scene. But at one Paris Boulogne hotel, getting out on Saturday night is no longer a matter of "if," but a matter of, "Who else is coming?"
Dubbed Apero Live, the latest cultural event at the Courtyard Paris Boulogne has all the makings of a superstar. Every Saturday night from 7 to 11 p.m., guests arrive at the stylish Boulogne-Billancourt terrace restaurant, Oleo Pazzo, to hear the latest local musicians perform. The genres change weekly -- jazz may be on the calendar one week, only to be followed by pop the next -- so that the experience is as fresh as it is entertaining.
Known for its mouthwatering Mediterranean fare (think rack of lamb with grilled peppers or John Dory filet served with chanterelle cannelloni), Oleo Pazzo's intimate space is only enhanced by the weekly performances. Locals and visitors alike cozy up to tables to drink in the scene and maybe a glass or two of wine. After all, for just 29EUR per person, visitors receive half a bottle of wine and a generous spread of appetizers that includes hot and cold dishes, cheeses, meats and desserts. And as one of the most inviting terrace restaurants in Boulogne-Billancourt, Oleo Pazzo encourages guests to linger over their meal, soak up the ambience and share the experience with friends.
For travelers staying at this hotel in Paris Boulogne, Apero Live is just one more feature to love. New guest rooms combine sleek good looks with four-star amenities like high-speed Wi-Fi and spaciousness rarely found in Parisian hotels. Plus the hotel's two bars, Cent Quatorze and 114 Up on the Roof, complement Oleo Pazzo's menu with signature cocktails, champagne and views that will take one's breath away. There are, in other words, now plenty of ways to stay busy every night of the week.
