WATO : A fancy dinner in an abandoned school of Paris
In 2012, WATO’s crew organized a series of fancy events in abandoned places, one of them was a dinner in an abandoned school.
Indeed, on the top of the hill of Saint Cloud, a suburb right outside Paris, there is a huge facility, a kind of time capsule untouched for more than 20 years. After discovering this fantastic building through urban exploration, WATO decided to throw a fancy dinner there for 100 members of its growing community.
Preparing the building for the dinner felt like a commando operation, working silently at night to reopen and secure the entrance without waking up the neighbours or the police.
The event featured:
- A secret rendez-vous for 100 guests wearing fancy clothes and masks.
- Urban exploration and photoshoot in the old facilities where time was suspended in 2000.
- A candlelit dinner prepared by our chef Matthieu Housse in the old refectory
- A final glass of champagne on the rooftop overlooking Paris
