Place 54 (pronunciation: PLAHS cen-KAHNT KAHTR as it is a French-language title) is the third studio album by Nantes-based rap group Hocus Pocus, released in 2007.[1] The album title refers to a seat in a passenger train car.

Some of the tracks feature other artists such as Malik Mezzadri ("Quitte á t'aimer"), Omar ("Smile"), Fred Wesley and Stro the 89th Key ("Recyclé"), T-Love & The Procussions ("Vocab!"), Dalja and C2C ("Move On"), Elodie Rama and Tribeqa ("Touriste"), and Taïriq Keda, who produced "Je la Soul".
