Special Apéro at the water’s edge at the National Dance Center
View date


The National Dance Center is organizing an apéro on its terrace along the canal de l’Ourcq. With your glass of natural wine, your beer and your tapas, you will be in the best conditions to enjoy this relaxed moment at the sound of calm music.

The restaurant Mingway crue, which is a fair trade cantine that finances local aid programmes, will manage the food and drinks. It’s perfect to have a chill afterwork with colleagues or have a nice moment with friends !

A visit of the National Dance Center is proposed at 7 :30 pm to discover this unusual monument. Some usually closed rooms will even be exceptionnaly open like the rooftop which gives an incredible view of Paris.

The price counts : A guided visit of the CND, a natural glass of wine or a beer (25cl), a tapas.

Mingway was born from the « Ernest et les Pères Populaires » organization. Ernest is a big network of fair trade chefs who decided to raise their price a little to finance actions of local food aid.

The key words of Mingway : a democratization of food thanks to affordable prices, food of good quality and a open and friendly space carried by a young team.

The bar will sell other drinks : white, rosé, red natural wine (3€), fizzy wine (6€), Gallia homemade beers (5€), flat drinks (2€ to 4€)

Opening at 6 :30 pm, closing at 8 pm (guided visit at 7 :30). End of the apéro at 11 pm

Très intéressant.
Guide sympa et vivant


Expérience géniale !

La visite était très intéressante. Le petit vin blanc et la burrata sur la terrasse du CND avec vue sur le canal était super. Tout le monde est très accueillant et le lieu est splendide !
