This year, say goodbye to gatherings and cheesy street bands in Paris. Instead, we're focusing on classy and sexy venues to sing our favorite tunes together! Here's a selection.
Peña at Hoxton, the Hottest One
The Hoxton is hosting the most exciting event of the evening, a temple of cool in Le Sentier. The hotel is teaming up with Colors studios, which is launching its Summer Tour Festival on June 21st in Paris before heading to Brussels, Barcelona, Berlin, and London. This music platform showcases the most distinctive talents and original sounds from around the world, regardless of colors or genres. On the program, live from the new Mercatino terrace, immersed in a dolce vita atmosphere, artists Juba and Orkestra, plus a mystery guest, will be there to make you dance. At the bar, you can enjoy amazing cocktails like the Rosolio spritz, made with Italicus, prosecco, sparkling water, raspberry, and peach (€14), or the surprising Sgroppino, made with Italicus, bergamot sorbet, and chili (€17). For snacks, there will be toasties, hot dogs, and vegetarian options to delight you during this musical escapade.

BAM, the Most Kids-Friendly One
Since Music Day falls on a Wednesday this year, Bam Karaoke is dedicating this day to children. On this occasion, kids come together for an afternoon of singing Disney classics and their favorite tunes (which might be a bit ear-splitting, let's admit it). Psst: candies, soda, juices, and various syrups will be offered in abundance to enhance the sharing atmosphere. All that's left is to gather a little group of friends.
Bam Parmentier, 40 avenue de la République, Paris 11th BAM Etoile, 69 avenue de Wagram, Paris 17th BAM Madeleine, 4 rue de Caumartin, Paris 9th Online reservation, ticket reservation only for children aged 6 and above, €14.50.

Big Mamma, the Most Italian One
The pioneer of authentic Neapolitan pizza transforms La Felicità into a massive party for Music Day. The program includes insane live concerts in an Italo-disco atmosphere (hello Raffaella Carrà) starting from 2 PM on the terrazza, featuring around ten artists who will perform until 11:30 PM, alternating between funk, disco, hip hop, and R&B sets. It's an opportunity to toast to the dolce vita with a Campari Spritz as in Venice and enjoy an authentic aperitivo to be found at the trattoria.
