Coucou Events

Come and join our fun, culturally-savvy events throughout the year – art shows, film screenings, wine tastings and everything in between!

While the backyard parties we organized in our former Williamsburg space were legendary, we plan to continue the tradition in our new Nolita space! We celebrate our French cultural heritage by hosting parties for such annual events as Bastille Day and Mardi Gras, but sometimes Coucou parties are just an excuse to get together and meet classmates, teachers and students of other levels in a casual setting! Class outings are a regular occurence as well – we’ve taken groups to various local bars and restaurants, and sometimes to a game of Escape The Room (in French!).

Immersive French Outings is a series curated by long-term Coucou teacher Pia. Pia is well-connected in the New York art scene and has taken students to movie premieres, French restaurants, the opera and to visit a local French artist’s studio. A great way to practice your French and have a unique cultural experience all at the same time!



Bastille Day Launch Party!

Saturday July 14th at 6pm

For the opening of our new headquarters, Coucou cheerfully invites  you to a French Apéro with live music by Marie Davy, snacks from Maman and French Cheeses from Murray’s Cheese.
