The Open Houses


JO&JOE Paris Gentilly



It’s in Hossegor, the ultimate surfing destination and very popular with the millennial-minded, that the first Open House was launched at the start of June 2017 in partnership with Quicksilver and Roxy. Situated between the lake and the beach it is the perfect playground for those visiting Hossegor to surf, paddle-board, do yoga or run…


This enormous property, built in typical South-Western France style in wooded grounds spanning 1 hectare, has been completely redesigned by JO&JOE to reflect its disruptive DNA: open and interconnecting spaces, synergies between the indoor and outdoor areas, the mobility of the fixtures and fittings enabling a variety of uses, and all with a sense of playfulness that promotes social interaction. The Open House has developed a partnership with surfing world champion Jérémie Flores, who has become a true JO&JOE ambassador at Hossegor. The teams of designers from the PENSON practice and from Accor, in collaboration with designers from Boardriders group have pushed the particularly innovative original design direction of the brand to the extreme by adapting to the local environment, in order to give JO&JOE Hossegor its own identity. Guided by the shared mindset and values of innovation, interaction and the drive to offer an intense and high-quality experience, the collaboration between the three brands led to a property where an easy-going lifestyle, relaxation and fun reign supreme in a surfing and camping world.

JO&JOE has decided to set up home just a stone’s throw from the Cité Internationale Universitaire in the south of Paris. Only 2 minutes from the RER B line, 20 minutes from the Arc de Triomphe and 20 minutes from Orly Airport, JO&JOE PARIS GENTILLY is the cool new living space in the south of the capital, open to all – neighbors and travelers alike.


Léo Valls has joined the JO&JOE community as an ambassador of the Paris Gentilly Open House. An internationally renowned professional skateboarder, he has collaborated with the brand to create this totally urban living space, reflecting his art: skate-urbanism. Street art is everywhere in the Open House thanks to the work of 9 local and international artists who have covered the walls with their creations.

The bartenders are always available to welcome customers for a coffee or a colorful cocktail. The party really starts at 6pm with aperitifs – THE ultimate time for interaction (drinking in moderation obviously) –bringing Tripsters and Townsters together. 6pm at JO&JOE is time and time again the opportunity to share an XXXL charcuterie platter, savory snacks or tapas along with a beer, cocktail or mocktail (alcohol-free) from €5 or in XXL, served in a totally quirky way.
