Hi !

Through the years, Café Central became a major actor in movies, advertisement, photoshooting, press launching… as a prime shooting location.

Among others, we welcomed Oscar winner Jean Dujardin (Möbius) as well as Benedict Cumberbatch in his 5th Element performance. We're also famous background for popular ads, tremendous rock groups or singers.

To see the location : we are open everyday (except on December 25th) from 12 am until 4 am.

To rent the location : you do your business, we own a bar. There are 3 formules :

• closing hours : Customers are allowed from 12 but you can carry on if needed. From 7:00 am to 12 am
• opening hours : customers do not bother you and, on the contrary, you need some. From 3:00 pm to 3:00 am.
• private : for bigger sets or when many plans must be shot, it could be needed to totally control the premises (no one allowed in but your crew and our staff). Please allow a booking of at least 3 months in advance as we show concerts every week !

Some extras : we know your job so we know you can need time (deco preps, trucks unloading, security…) and professional environment. We provide all that, tailor made and only if needed : real customers, real bar tenders, real security & bouncers, real drinks… Ask, we'll find a way.

Tariffs : Tariffs are bound to availability and your specific demands. There is an extra charge when shooting on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. We do not offer catering (but can arrange if needed), only drinks. It is not compulsory to consume our drinks but if you do so, those will be billed at current menu rate. There is no extra fee for your own catering. Students (artists or art schools) can address their project by email and, under certain conditions, they can shoot free.
