12 a.m. - Night Walk

It may have been a long night but don’t worry: the coloured glass beads you see as you head for home aren’t a hallucination. Two cupolas, made of glistening beads threaded through aluminium, hang over a bench right by the entrance of métro station Palais-Royal, one of the first eight stations to be opened in 1900. Artist Jean-Michel Othoniel designed the Kiosque des noctambules (Kiosk of the Nightwalkers) in 2000 to celebrate the Métro’s 100th birthday.
Take a load off and join the party one more time before calling it a night.
