Where do you currently reside?
What’s your occupation?

What would the title of your autobiography be?
What can’t you travel without ?
Pedro: My crew. As a DJ you’re often on the road alone, I hate it.

Pedro: I have the chance to travel a lot. I’m always so happy to come back home. I can safely say that my favorite destination is my home, Paris.
If you could choose one person to show you “their Paris”, who would it be?
Pedro: Honestly, I’d have to say myself. I really love my city, I know my way around.
What or who has inspired you recently?

What’s your favorite restaurant in Paris?
Pedro: Le Petit Bleu, 23 rue Muller, 75018 Paris - Food is cheap, good, not healthy, heavy, from North Africa, and on top of Montmartre.
What’s your favorite Bar/Nightlife Venue in Paris, and why?
Pedro: Social club for the music, Le Pompon for the Gin & Tonic
What’s your favorite store/shop in Paris?
Pedro: Like real Parisians, I love BHV in Le Marais. It’ sour classic giant store where you can find everything you need. Of course, Colette too, and Bleu Noir on rue Durantin where you can get tattoos, tees, and great books.
What’s your favorite Museum/Gallery in Paris?
Pedro: Le Louvre, even if you’ve been there 20 times, you’re always amazed. I like Kamel Mennour gallery, and right now I’m dreaming of a OHWOW gallery in Paris.
What’s your “must do” recommendation for Paris visitors?
Pedro: Climb Montmartre, or rent a scooter – best way to visit our city, free as a bird.
