A new 3,400 capacity superclub is coming to Paris next month, with details of its first event line-ups being released over the past week.
Called Phantom, it is owned and operated by the Paris Society group, a conglomerate that also owns a slew of large-capacity, well-manicured event spaces in the city and across the rest of France including Bridge, Raspoutine, Boum Boum, Mirage and Taboo, as well as other hospitality ventures such as high-end restaurants and a hotel.

Phantom will be located at 8 Boulevard de Bercy, in the space underneath concert venue Accor Hotel Arena in the 12th arrondissement in the East of Paris, and parties will go until 6:AM each night.
Its early line-ups indicate a focus on techno and tech house, with the first party will feature a takeover from Raw XXL, with I Hate Models, Ey.rah and Corbeille Dallas B2B Illnurse opening the club’s booth.
Earlier this year, Paris’s Rex Club celebrated its 35th anniversary, releasing a double LP in collaboration with record label Wagram to celebrate. It features 22 tracks from important artists in the club’s history, including Joe Smooth, Leo Pol, Laurent Garnier and Daft Punk.
