A collective in the purest sense, Pain O Chokolat is composed of 10 Parisians who are passionate about fashion, sport, food, film and throwing massive parties. A year ago, one of them—the stylish Charaf—opened Le Pompon, a breath of fresh air in the occasionally lackluster Parisian nightlife scene. With his sidekick Mehdi, a video director, promoter and DJ extraordinaire, they managed to create a certain je ne sais quoi that makes nights at Le Pompon amazing. They also organize infamous block parties once a year, basketball tournaments and fashion shows. Get the lowdown on Paris’ world famous food scene with this list of Mehdi & Charaf’s favorite spots.
