I am a bit of a geeky person. I like everything related to the tech industry and work in a startup, so I am into the French tech area. Le Sentier is the street of a lot of startups, incubators and Venture Capital firms. Some others are also in the street nearby and a bunch of events are organized in two bars pretty close by: The Players bar (rue Montmartre) and Le Delaville Café (Boulevard de bonne nouvelle).
The NUMA, the place held by the Silicon Sentier association, just opened by the end of 2013. It aims to become the main place for young startups, with 6 floors to host teams and meetings.
This area is very intersting because it used to be the heart of the industrial area in Paris. Today, still there are a lot of shops specialized in wholesale clothes and some sell stocks (the old collection, like Kookai, rue Reaumur). I used to worked there and when I arrived in the morning there were always people waiting for trucks full of fabrics to bring to their specialized stores and style offices.
The mix of styles is quite interesting!
