A day at the track has never been this cool! At the Hippodrome Paris-Vincennes, Parisians are plugging into a chic new event, made unique thanks to its location at a legendary horse racing track in the 12th arrondissement of the city. This event is known as the 'After Work de l'Hippodrome,' named after the popular afterwork meetups that busy Parisians flock to following a long day at the office. But even those on holiday can enjoy the ambiance of these afterwork gatherings that will be taking place until November 29, 2013.
Guests staying at one of the Grands Hôtels Parisiens will certainly appreciate the friendly and offbeat environment offered by the Hippodrome every Friday from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. within its lounge Le Cafe Casaques. Order a drink at the bar and then find a seat with a view of the races.
This is an exciting experience for anyone who has ever wondered about the world of horse racing. To make things even more appetizing, a glass of sparkling wine is offered to all patrons and the bar features a wonderful menu of tapas. The prices are reasonably, too, with tapas starting at only 5 euros a dish.
For those who love horses, a visit to the stables is obligatory. There, they can see with their own eyes the beautiful and powerful animals who have just shown off their racing skills. Visitors can even get their pictures taken with the jockeys who expertly ride these champions every day. The 'After Work de l'Hippodrome' offers the perfect way to get ready for the weekend in a creative way.
This is the fourth year that the Hippodrome Paris-Vincennes has organized its autumn afterwork event. This is a extraordinary experience that would be hard to have anywhere else in the world. For this reason, visitors to Paris in October and November should not miss their chance to try something new.
