Crack-of-Dawn Rave

Morning Glory_MSethi-2396_glitterMy former boss, the fashion designer Rick Owens, turned me onto the idea of waking early to slam an espresso and hit an after-hours club. How better for an dansomane d’un certain age to shake it out without the attendant hangover?

A new breed of clubs is going even further to simply start first thing in the morning rather than carry over from the night before. Los Angeles has its Sweaty Sundays with trailblazing choreographer Ryan Heffington. London has Morning Gloryville, Morning Glorywhich started last year as a sober, socially conscious version of a rave. And now Morning Gloryville is expanding into other cities, including finally, Paris.

It happens this Wednesday morning, so pack your work clothes and come dressed to dance. The 14-euro entrance fee covers coffee and access to roving massages and a yoga class area. Dance instructors will ease wallflowers onto the floor.

Say hi to Rick if you happen to bump into him on the floor.

Sept 10, 6h30 – 10h30, Le Carreau du Temple, 4 Rue Eugene Spuller, 75003. Metro: République or Temple
