Hello everyone. If you're here it means you're wondering what Block'Out is about. Let me tell you the story of this adventure...
... Ready? Then I'll begin!
After having discovered climbing in the Forêt de Fontainebleau when they were students, Arnaud PIOGER and Emmanuel CHARRUA decided to create an indoor climbing facility that would make it possible for experienced climbers to improve, but also for beginners to discover the joys of climbing.
That was how, in 2008, Block'Out was born...
... and the 2 friends offered an original concept by combining a climbing facility entirely devoted to bouldering; climbing without ropes or harnesses....
.... and a brasserie type restaurant.
Block'Out quickly met with its audience, thanks to the freedom and the exchanges between climbers that indoor bouldering allows.
The quality of the Block'Out restaurant and service also contributed to making the brand a unique spot for sports and meals.
This success encouraged Arnaud and Emmanuel to open a second climbing-restaurant facility in Paris (Saint-Ouen) in 2012, and then in Evry-Lisses in 2014.
In 2015 Block'Out will open in Strasbourg and Rennes. In 2016 more Block'Out climbing facility - restaurants will open in Bordeaux, Montpellier, Lille and finally Lyon.
Block'Out in Toulouse, Marseille and New Zealand should come very soon...
