The Espace Carpeaux hosts any event imaginable: theater, jazz, cabaret, classical concerts, dance, comedy, slam poetry performances, vocalists, acts for children, and art exhibits including photography, painting, sculpture, and design. The busy schedule incorporating all these events provides plenty of entertainment for the community and visitors to Courbevoie.
The Quai du Blues presents, every weekend, big names and bigger voices of blues music. The restaurant, serving deliberately French cuisine to accompany the deliberately American-styled performances, provides dinner from 9p-11p each evening (extended hours possible upon reservation) with projections of classic blues performances on a big screen. The concerts themselves are blues, gospel, soul, or rhythm and blues: a perfect dessert course for the ears. Blues aficionados will be impressed by the scheduled program of concerts, and blues novices will quickly be transformed into dedicated fans.
The Centre Omnisports Docteur Jean Blot has an impressive array of sports facilities. This includes an all-sports room which can accommodate around 350 people and holds practices for handball, basketball, badminton, and rock climbing on an 11-meter (36-foot) wall. There are also two soccer fields and rooms devoted to the practice of specific sports: judo, karate, aikido and yoga, boxing, table tennis, dance, and bodybuilding.
The zig-zag roofed Cultural Center of Courbevoie holds performances of theater, classical music, comedy, children's entertainment, comedy, and vocalists as well as art exhibits including painting, photography, and sculpture.

The Center accommodates the elderly along with children.
The Conservatoire is a center of musical education which offers classes in instruments and voice grouped by age, in classical dance, and in theater. It grew from humble beginnings in the end of the 19th Century, when military musicians of Asnières offered weekly classes in music to the youth of the town. Student and professional performances are frequently hosted in the auditorium.
The majestic Hôtel de Ville of Levallois-Perret was completed in only three years and inaugurated on March 27, 1898. Designed by the architect Jamin, it is particularly symbolic, marking the creation of a true town on this stretch of land once owned by only a few noblemen. Today, municipal committees and elected officials conduct their business and interactions with citizens inside. Art exhibits are also shown in the building.
Located inside the prestigious Maurice Ravel Conservatory, the Salle Ravel is one of the largest halls in Levallois-Perret. Equipped with fantastic acoustics, this elegant hall is not only used for concerts but also for dance and theater shows. Opened in 2008, it is one of the popular entertainment venues in the town.
The Conservatoire Maurice-Ravel imbues Levallois with the melodious sounds of orchestras - Classical, Jazz, Harmony, and Youth Symphony - and a choir, with jazz workshops and Jam Sessions (open to the public each Saturday), and with classes for children and adults. Along with instruction in instruments, the Conservatoire offers courses in the dramatic arts, in classical, jazz, and tap dance, in voice, computer generated music, creating film scores, and composing and writing music. A variety of conferences, plays, and art exhibits are hosted along with concerts.
Based on the concept of theater espoused by Jacques Sarthou of decentralization and grassroots theater, the theatrical company Annibal et ses Elephants gradually developed their venue into the Cave à Théâtre. Performances are held in the street or in the Cave, which also hosts workshops, artist residencies, and the Troupe Ephémère, which provides employment to 12-15 artists every year through a French law benefiting marginalized and unemployed citizens.
Containing five rooms devoted to different sports functions, the Palais des Sports Gabriel-Péri is the oldest sports facility in Levallois-Perret and is conveniently located in the center of town. Gymnastics, martial arts, handball and basketball, volleyball and physical education are all provided space to practice and compete.
Principally focused on hosting works of theater, the Théâtre Le Village is managed by the city of Neuilly-sur-Seine. Care is taken to program a diverse schedule of performances, including classical and comical works, cabaret-style shows, and dramatic readings; a variety of concerts are scheduled as well, from classical to French singer-songwriters and contemporary rock. Not enough entertainment? Le Village also houses a small movie theater.
