Finally settled for a tiny little humble restaurant on the outskirts of Paris. It has a small terrace where we could get just a "little" messy ;) .

So lets celebrate the spirit of Holi with some colours, music, light snacks and hopefully a traditional (non alcoholic) drink and lots of colourful and smiling faces!!

Price: 7 Euros

Includes a samosa chat,

A cup of chai,

A sweet,

Hopefully a drink called thandai

And colours!

Time11:00 -> 12:30

Dress code: Don't wear your favourite dress and get ready to get dirty!

Optional: Stay back for lunch and continue the party  (menu at 5 Euros)

How to get there: At terminus of line 7, Metro La Courneuve

Number of people are restriced as its a small place so please update you RSVP if you change plans.

Cheers

Abhinav

    What a party! Kya masti! To all the people who missed this event, you really missed something. It was one of our best meet-ups ever. It was wonderful to play Holi In France ... and to have colours on our faces. As usual, the food in Apna Punjab Restaurant was amazing (jalebi, thandai, samosa, aloo paratha, gol guppe, mutter panir...). I am waiting for the photos to see our faces! Holi mubarak!

    Abhinav,
    between parc de Bercy and the POPB, there's an area close to la Cinematheque francaise, with lawns, trees and benches where we can have a picknick and everything. It is managed by la mairie de Paris, it's not considered as a park. I think we can just go and have fun, if it's not too cold or raining.
    And la Courneuve is so far from most of Paris...!
    What do you think?

    1 · March 26, 2013

    • Raj

      This restaurant is not far from Paris, as you can see, it is near the metro La Courneuve 8 mai 1945 (line 7). There is a small courtyard in the restaurant so we can play Holi. It is a private courtyard so we can do it because is is not allowed in public places without permission... it is not India. This restaurant is the best (and cheapest) Indian restaurant of France and Navarre with delicious authentic pure vegetarian food. As Abhinav said don't bring alcohol.

  • Nicolas Z.

    Hi, are you looking for an indoor or outdoor place ?
    For outdoors, Parc de Bercy or Parc de Vincennes could be other options. For indoors... well, not much ideas.

    March 25, 2013

    • Abi

      Hi Nicolas, in the parks it seemed a little complicated, a lot of permissions were required ...

      March 25, 2013

    • Abi

      Law here is a little complicated .. parks are legally closed till sometime in April, can't dirty the place + need permissions for a gathering of more than 30 people... if there was a well hidden place / private place then it could be a possibility ...

      March 25, 2013

  • Pranav

    I QUIT. i cant do Holi indoors

    March 25, 2013

    • Abi

      its not exactly indoors, there is a small terrace ;)

      March 24, 2013

    • Abi

      Hi Shan, I suggest join the waiting list, im sure people will update their rsvp. Cheers

      March 24, 2013

  • Vikram (.

    I guess the grounds at Invalides could be an option ?

    March 24, 2013

    • Abi

      The parcs here are heavily regulated! so i guess it will have to be at a restaurant ... or far from Paris

      March 24, 2013

    • Vikram (.

      Usually on weekends you can have people playing football and other sports in there etc (but don't know how regulated they are)

      March 24, 2013

  • ingrid
