Every Sunday from 6pm, free access.
Just like the settings, the music and the soundscapes allow us to perceive worlds from elsewhere that surprise the visitor and take him out of the déjà-vu and the déjà-entendu. Before the music, whatever the space you visit, you can never be sure of hearing the song of seagulls, unless it is the rustling of a tropical forest, the buzzing of bees foraging for lavender, snatches of hushed conversations escaping from an opium bar… each setting has its melody.
The playlists have been tailor-made to fit the different times of the day and night. During the day, Italian or French film music is mixed with instrumental background music, so-called “elevator music”, which is more subtle than one might think, and which was actually designed to remain discreet and leave room for conversation and exchange.
At nightfall, the tempo evolves towards a more sensual and enveloping wave. The exotic sounds get married to the digital machines of the 80s, we are between Miami, Tokyo and Lagos at the time of the aperitif, where the intensity rises gradually…
From Thursday to Saturday, a team of resident DJs takes over the decks and turns the place into a more nocturnal atmosphere, where the instrumental ambient melodies gradually give way to the exoticism of the Caribbean. Zouk, summer hits, and other festive folklores mingle in the dance fumes.
High-end sound system.
The American brand Klipsch has invested the rooms of the Comptoir with speakers from the Heritage range. Wooden 70’s speakers, with a warm, precise and powerful sound, as if they were installed in a living room, to be enjoyed comfortably on a sofa. This high-fidelity sound system, combined with amplifiers from the exceptional French brand L-Acoustics, takes on its full dimension when, at 10pm, the instrumental atmosphere gives way to a more sustained tempo and to dancing.
