There are parties… and then there are parties. A super secretive French group who call themselves “We Are The Oracle” organize gatherings in abandoned buildings – in Paris! They are, of course, French… so the gatherings are always super classy wining and dining affairs with a pretty sick party to round it off. You’ve never been to an “underground” party like this…
The event organisers, like to refer to themselves as “les conspirateurs“, and they seem to have a real talent for tracking down creepy/awesome venues.
They’ve held parties at:
An abandoned castle in Paris, that just so happens to be owned by the Rothschild’s, aptly named “Chateau Rothschild”. “The ‘castle’ has been abandoned since the WWII when the Rothschild family fled to England before the arrival of the Germans, who would later inhabit and plunder the house during the four-year Nazi occupation of Paris. After the city’s liberation, the U.S. army were the next self-service tenants at the Chateau Rothschild– their stay didn’t do the residence any favours either. The Rothschilds never returned to their home and over the decades it has been left to deteriorate while serving as a playground for graffiti artists and vandals.”

Their most recent party was held in an empty swimming pool last month. It looks like it was an insane night!
My only regret is that i am nowhere near Paris, and attempting to join this group would be pointless. If you’re planning on moving to France, or you’re actually reading this in France… these guys might be secretive about it all, but they do have a Facebook page. Check it out here: FB
