An alternative cultural center that is self-managed, l’Usine gathers associations and collectivities in an old factory. In 1998, it was officially renamed l’Usine (The Factory) and became THE place for Geneva’s nightlife.
A Warhol attitude sometimes emerges. You can enjoy a variety of gigs at l’Usine, from reggae, to house, to hip-hop ; and even shows and exhibitions.
Whilst most of Geneva’s night clubs impose a dress code and play chart music (that we’ve heard a million times on the radio), l’Usine provides an oasis, something different. Innovative and anti- trendy, it does not seek to burn holes in your pockets. In it you will find a creative melting pot, starting with the Post Tenebras Rock (PTR) that produces or co-produces concerts to promote Geneva’s rock scene. The Zoo is a place for night owls, eager to listen to electronic music. Spoutnik is for film buffs. There is also a Theatre and Moloko is for refreshments. A big rough diamond is what we like to call it.
