(If you can) watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools.....

(from Rudyard Kipling's IF)

New start for Le Bataclan



Le Bataclan concert hall in Paris reopened on November 12, 2016. It is the last of the six establishments that were hit by the synchronized terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015 to be back in business. It was at Le Bataclan that 89 people attending a concert by the American band "Eagles of Death Metal" were shot dead at random by three IS terrorists in the middle of the concert.

Details of when the other establishments (bars and restaurants) reopened for business after the synchronized terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015:


La Belle Equipe bar at 92 rue de Charonne where 19 people having a drink at the terrace were shot dead. Extensive renovation works have given it a completely new look and it reopened for business on March 21, 2016. The names of some of the victims have been discreetly inscribed on a wall at the terrace (photo below).






Le Petit Cambodge restaurant at the junction of rue Bichat and rue Alibert reopened on March 14, 2016.



Le Carillon bar, which is just opposite Le Petit Cambodge reopened on January 13, 2016.


A La Bonne Biere bar at the junction of rue de la Fontaine-au-Roi and rue du Faubourg du Temple reopened on December 4, 2015, just three weeks after the attacks. It was the first among the six restaurants/bars hit by the synchronized attacks to reopen for business.



The Casa Nostra restaurant, 30 meters away from La Bonne Biere at 2 rue de la Fontaine-au-Roi reopened for business on February 5, 2016.



Another bar, Le Comptoir Voltaire (near Place de la Nation), where no innocents were killed but where a terrorist, Brahim Abdeslam blew himself up, also reopened for business on December 16, 2015.
