The 10th anniversary of the “Bonheur des dames”
Yoyo - Palais de Tokyo17.09.2013 #lifestyle
Born in 2003 on the Regine’s track, the “Au Bonheur des Dames” evenings instigated by the duo Gourcuff / Van Themsche have become in a decade an institution for any young woman from a good family with a festive spirit. Amazing longevity for a weekly, which has endured despite the ravages of the economy and a relocation. Today housed in Les Planches (de Paris), the “BDD” for intimates attracts more than ever the beautiful flowers of the VIII arr, and de facto those who court them with magnums and unbuttoned shirts.
The recipe? An open-bar / dinner / show exclusively reserved for girls from 21h30 to 23h30, before opening its doors to men for a long night of overconsumption. At the helm of the artistic direction, Anne-Sophie Baillet renews the experiments as much as possible, through a multitude of themes and partnerships that undoubtedly work for the success of the business.
Ten years thus, 2000 guests, in a brand new place: the Yo-yo, freshly opened club of the Palais de Tokyo, of which one did not finish to hear narrating the nights thanks to a giant stage and a mezzanine on which the happy few will perch by hundred to see the world from above.
The evening was first musical, with the lives of Panda Electric Garden, Micky Green, and the dj set of Sam Karslon, great faithful of the team. Performative then, thanks to the ballet of Miss Marion and House of Drama. Festive at last, thanks to the compact crowd which happily disinhibited itself despite the obligations of the next day. Difficult, no doubt.
