tokyo's unique urban vibe inspires on a global scale but resonates especially well in the french capital. jérémie feinblatt and valentin joliff are the figureheads of paris-based artist agency blank. the duo has taken over a clubbing venue in the étienne marcel area of town, and baptized it eko. well, they've actually done more than that and took on the interior, turning it into a funky urban space inspired by the japanese capital's cityscape. eko features a dance floor, a sake bar + salon, and of course a special section for the ultimate post-drink karaoke efforts. the setting of the bar + salon is plastered with images, neon lights and video screens that ooze the vibe of tokyo. served here is a range of authentic japanese sake and whiskey, but also plenty of cocktails. the adjacent dance floor is hidden behind curtains and doubles as a stage for live acts. eko is home to resident deejays from blank agency, but also features a rotating program of cool acts + gigs that keep you entertained until the wee little hours. location: 14 rue st.-fiacre [étienne-marcel].
