If you're not into clubbing and would rather catch your music acts live, then l'Usine is the place to be. A converted gold treatment factory, "donated" by Geneva to the cultural association "Etat d'Urgences" (State of Emergencies) in order to establish an alternative culture incubator during the 90's, l'Usine includes a concert hall with it's own bar, an upstairs bar which often has local artists works on display (and where the food is surprisingly good), a movie theater showing non-commercial movies, various lofts dedicated to artistic creation, and a record shop where you'll find all the latest recordings on alternative labels.
Depending on the line-ups, you are as likely to bump into a decked out punk with a foot high iroquois as you are to encounter the head of the investment arm of a private bank out for a night on the town.
To sum it all up, if you're in the mood for skirting the line between trashy and trendy, l'Usine is the place to do it!
