The brasserie Cloche, Paris 1

 

Have your lunch break at Cloche to taste the best mayonnaise eggs in Paris, while sipping a delicious tomato juice or glass of wine. Then, head for La Bourse de Commerce to admire the exhibition dedicated to Mike Kelley, or for the Christian Louboutin store close by to get the day off to a good start with a pair of red-soled stilettos.

The Italian restaurant Loulou, Paris 1

 

While it’s best to wait until summer to enjoy the terrace of Loulou, comfortably seated in the Tuileries Gardens with a view of the Eiffel Tower, you should book a table now if you’re looking forward to savoring the truffle pizza (a delicacy) with a good Spritz. Maybe you’ll bump into designers Marc Jacobs or Amina Muaddi...

La pizzeria Daroco

 

Près de huit ans après son ouverture, la pizzeria Daroco conserve tout le charme de ses débuts. Installé dans une ancienne boutique Jean Paul Gaultier – les marinières que portent les serveurs sont un clin d'œil au couturier – ce restaurant situé près de la place de la Bourse séduit par son décor sophistiqué et sa cuisine italienne revisitée. Bon à savoir, au fond du restaurant, se cache le bar Danico et sa carte de cocktails signée Nico de Soto, un des mixologues les plus réputés au monde.

The brasserie Gallopin, Paris 2

 

With its decor dating back to 1876, its menu that reinvents French gastronomy, its electric atmosphere and large tables, the brasserie Gallopin ticks all the boxes for a successful dinner. And as the doors close and the tables empty, the owner extends the evening with a retro playlist and a series of cocktails and shots - to drink in moderation obviously.

The Silencio nightclub, Paris 2

 

Do we still need to present the Silencio club? Since its foundation by film director David Lynch in 1969, the nightclub has always attracted a very hip crowd. There, we are still dancing as tightly as ever and sipping cocktails as expensive as ever, but, for lack of a better alternative, we’ll eventually end up going back no matter what. Last October, we bumped into Cher for a session of playback far from being memorable.

La cantine healthy Season, Paris 3

 

Besoin d'une pause healthy dans la journée ? Direction Season, la cantine californienne de Cathy Closier située à deux pas du Carreau du temple dans le Marais. On vous conseille de choisir l'avocado-toast saumon mariné, les pancakes les plus fluffy de Paris, ou un açaï bowls coloré, accompagné d'un smoothie enrichi en super-aliments pour faire le plein de vitamines.

The Progrès bar and tobacco shop, Paris 3

 

The success of this bar and tobacco shop located in the Marais remains a mystery. The place is crowded and noisy, the terrace is always packed - even on Sundays - the food is basic and the atmosphere is rather dull. Despite all that, Le Progrès remains a must-see Parisian location, where Valentino shot one of its collections back in 2022.

La Perle bar, Paris 3

 

If you can’t find a table at Le Progrès, you can easily head for La Perle, after a quick stop at Le Saint-Gervais on the way. It is said that the food is succulent, yet no one ever eats there, or at least not for dinner. The fashion fauna there is so compact that it overflows onto the sidewalks and roads, and orders exclusively gin and tonics or pints of beer to quench its thirst. The terrible service and endless toilet queues have not dampened the spirits of her loyal customers.

Sugaar, Paris 6

 

A gem located in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood, Sugaar has rapidly grown on the fashion sphere since its opening at the end of 2022. A collaboration between Alexis Poivre, Joachim Rappaport, and model Cate Underwood, Sugaar offers Basque specialties served in dazzling silverware and cocktails in wine glasses. The perfect blend of simplicity and elegance..

Le Montana restaurant, Paris 6

 

The former jazz club Le Montana that welcomed Juliette Greco and Boris Vian in the 1950s, then turned into a trendy nightclub in the 2000s, has now become a restaurant and cocktail bar. Located between Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore, this iconic address still conjures up the memory of the French capital dreamt by the tourists. A good reason to go back.

The Silencio des Prés brasserie, Paris 6

 

A fusion of the legendary cinema Étoile Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the adjoining brasserie, Le Silencio des Prés has awakened the somewhat sleepy Left Bank of the capital since its opening two years ago. After a good wining and dining with friends, go to the famous cinema, which turns into a nightclub as soon as the clock strikes midnight.

The Pamela nightclub, Paris 6

 

With its stone vaults typical of the Latin neighborhood, the Pamela is reminiscent of the heyday of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the 1970s and 1980s, where all Paris gathered on the dancefloor until dawn all week long. We’ve looked everywhere and the Pamela remains the only respectable club on the Left Bank.

The Japanese restaurant Ojii, Paris 7

 

The mysterious restaurant with its phantasmagorical atmosphere deserves nothing more than your most glamorous looks and gourmet friends. A sexy, soft ambience, a dramatically sophisticated Japanese cuisine... from decor to the plate, it’s all about the details at Ojii. We can guarantee you an unforgettable dinner.

Maxim’s restaurant and bar, Paris 8

 

Among the infamous clients who used to come to this Parisian institution on Rue Royale, we have Maria Callas, Sacha Guitry, Andy Warhol, Orson Welles, Audrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly. Revived at the end of 2023, Maxim’s hasn’t lost its flair. Whether you want to dine in a cabaret atmosphere with live shows or enjoy a few cocktails at the bar on the first-floor bar - where you’ll bump into incognito French actors - this historic address is now a must-see in the capital.

The Caviar Kaspia restaurant, Paris 8

 

If you've never been to Caviar Kaspia, we strongly recommend you try your luck during the Fashion Week - if you manage to book a table. The menu of this legendary restaurant on Place de la Madeleine includes the famous caviar potato and, more recently, a caviar pizza that tastes like regression and decadence.

Le restaurant Lafayette, Paris 8

 

Étoile montante de la gastronomie française, auréolé d'une étoile au Guide Michelin et consacré par le magazine Time en 2023, le chef Mory Sacko inaugurait, il y a quelques semaines, sa nouvelle adresse très confidentielle du 8eme arrondissement. Sous les moulures d'un hôtel particulier classé – où le marquis de Lafayette organisait des soirées somptueuses – on vient tester les homemade poulets frits à tremper dans une sauce discrètement relevée.

The Soho House hotel, Paris 9

 

Far from matching its London and American counterparts, the Parisian Soho House hotel has nevertheless managed to win over the neighborhood’s regulars. Truth is, Pigalle’s supply of nightclubs is far from meeting demand. The service is mediocre, the food is expensive, but the cocktails are decent - and that’s already something. If you’re lucky enough to have a friend who is a member, a sine qua non condition for admission, you might just bump into Naomi Campbell.

The Grand Amour hotel, Paris 10

 

Since its opening in 2015, the Grand Amour hotel has been one of the capital’s most popular venues. The restaurant features a heated patio - which has become rare today - a secret bar with dj sets, and a friendly atmosphere, which make this hotel located in the 10th arrondissement a sure bet for a successful evening.

The Bisou à La Caserne nightclub, Paris 10

 

An incubator for responsible fashion by day and a club by night, La Caserne is the perfect symbol of our times. From its early days as an electro club (Le Carbone), this hybrid venue is now home to Bisou, a universal club with a casual atmosphere. And although Farida Khelfa earned a reputation as the bouncer of the Bains Douches in the 1980s, today, Bisou will call on the uncompromising eye of rising star of fashion, designer Vincent Pressiat, to determine whether or not you can walk through the front door. We wish you the best of luck!

The Fugazi bar and restaurant, Paris 11

 

Located just a stone’s throw from the Maurice-Gardette public park, Fugazi is the perfect embodiment of the Parisian nightlife - a raw aesthetic and a laid back atmosphere, a night spot at the crossroads of a wine bar and bistronomic restaurant, different spaces for dinner or for a drink in private. The ideal place to end a long day of fashion shows on a high note.

The Casbah nightclub, Paris 11

 

Last but not least, La Casbah is undoubtedly the most unusual venue. “Bistro-Souk” on the first floor - it's all in the name - and nightclub in the basement, this address has become the headquarters of the Parisian night owls and visitors from all over the globe thanks to Benjamin Belin in just a few months. A sure bet for a wild night out.
