Intriguing and innovative: the swimming pool-guinguette concept
Published on 1 June 2022 in Entertainment
Each year, the City of Paris springs a surprise by supporting an innovative project. A proposal from the team of Rosa Bonheur, the guinguette specialist in Paris, was chosen for this year. Thus, late spring 2022 sees the opening of L’Arche Javel, an astonishing project combining a floating swimming pool, a balneotherapy complex, a dance hall and, of course, a guinguette. Experience this bold new concept during your stay at the Platine Hotel…
The Port de Javel revitalised
A few years ago, the quays of the Seine in the 15th arrondissement were not popular with visitors. However, the opening of the superb Parc André Citroën and the beautifully designed Beaugrenelle shopping centre have given the area an undeniable momentum. L’Arche Javel is effectively an extension of the Parc André Citroën, situated at the Port de Javel. It occupies some 4,500 m², partly on the riverbank and partly on a barge that boasts three levels and a rooftop swimming pool. The exciting experience of an aquatic complex entirely dedicated to wellness and fun awaits you...
L’Arche Javel is for everyone
A hybrid concept par excellence, L’Arche Javel is for the pleasure of Parisians and visitors to the city alike, who can go there to play sports, swim and sunbathe by the pool overlooking the Seine. You can also have a drink and chat at the guinguette before heading for the dance floor. Drop by to savour the warm and relaxed ambiance of a typical Parisian late afternoon, cool off in the swimming pool and leave in the middle of the night.
Be among the first to experience this new place to chill in the heart of Paris. Enjoy the warm languor of Parisian afternoons and the buzz of Parisian evenings by the Seine, at L’Arche Javel! The opening of this swimming pool-guinguette is imminent!
