The ephemeral terrace on the forecourt of the Palais de la Porte Dorée.

Reopening in spring 2022

The spot in the 12th arrondissement


Poisson Lune is the summer terrace of the Palais de la Porte Dorée with events from Tuesday to Sunday, for visitors to enjoy summer in Paris with family or friends.
Events include meetings with travellers, exhibitions, world dance and jam sessions, all accompanied by a selection of drinks and delicious snacks.

Poisson Lune is of course a strong advocate of the circular economy, sustainable agriculture and the environment: organic food hampers, the vinyl record market, second-hand clothes stands and creative workshops will punctuate the weekends. Young children will have their own special area to play or read, with storytelling and games linked to the Tropical Aquarium!

Whatever your tastes, there is always something to see, hear, taste and experience at Poisson Lune.

Entertainment all week long

  • Monday is rest day, the terrace is closed so come back tomorrow!
  • Tuesday is cocktail hour for travel bugs. Mingle with seasoned travellers, globe-trotters, expatriates and dreamers to discuss journeys and adventures over a drink, because travelling is thirsty work.
  • Wednesday is workshops for young people, literary meetings and at the end of the day quizzes, blind tests or chess games.
  • On Thursdays evenings, the "popup" tours allow you to discover the Palace and its exhibition spaces with privileged access.
  • On Fridays evenings, a 100% female DJ set program sets the mood for the weekend.
  • Saturday is workshop day for all ages, with gardening, cooking, hairdressing, etc. And how about a live concert to wrap up the day?
  • Sunday evening is reserved for screenings and debates of films and short films.

Eat and drink responsibly!

Delicious and healthy eating

Poisson Lune is also a delight for your taste buds. A wide range of foods are on offer with pairings and fusion between culinary cultures thanks to different food-trucks every day of the week and a kitchen on board a double-decker bus. The emphasis is on organic produce!
