If you liked the first part of our escapade to Paris, you’re going to love this? Here are some more new addresses for you trip?
*Colette (213, Rue Saint Honoré). It’s no secret we have a weakness for the concept store par excellence. In addition to indulge in a whim, you can have a drink at the bar or visit the exhibition that celebrates the 15th anniversary of Darce Disappoints in the world of fashion, art and design. The show features 150 portraits including Pharrell Williams, Bill Cunningham, Xavier & Gaspard de Justice, Coco Chanel, Juergen Teller and Jeremy Scott.
*Rue Saint Honoré. Walking along the street of great boutiques is a must, if not for buying, at least for experiencing it as a museum (read Colette). We loved the Marc Jacobs store, located nearby?
*Le Marais. Visiting this area risks leaving your account in the red. In addition to classics such as Sandro and Maje (firms made in France), youl’ll also find Paul & Joe Sister (55, rue Vieille-du-Temple) and ACNE (3, Rue Froissant). Lose yourself in Le Mariais and enjoy!
*Outlet A.P.C. (20, rue Andre del Sarte).
We discovered the outlet of one of our favourite brands. Everything at 50% off the price! Getting there is not easy. You’ll have to climb the streets to Montmartre, where you can visit the Sacré Coeur Church. If you feel tired and need a rest and a snack, drop by the restaurant called No Problemo to enjoy a Pastis and a Tart Tatin. Their snails will make you feel French from head to toe?
*Silencio (142, rue Montmartre). Getting in is hard, but we managed to get inside the so much talked-about David Lynch club and we loved it! The geometry of the furniture, the red curtains, the labyrinths of consciousness, the Lynchian restrooms? Silencio blends the style of 17th century literary salons and 18th century London’s private clubs with a touch of Zurich’s Dadaist Cabaret Voltaire and Saint-Germain-des-Près’ existentialist Tabou. The music at this exclusive place includes Talking Heads, James Blake and Betty Davis). Until midnight it’s only open for members, and getting in after that is a question of luck. Their delicious cocktails start at 14 Euros. The cultural offer at Silencio is changed four times a year by David Lynch himself. The ?Carte Blanche’ includes concerts, film, literary gatherings and culinary experiences. It is currently showing the work of Mati Klarwein, the surrealist-psychedelic artist who became famous in the 1970s for his covers for Miles Davis o Jimi Hendrix.
*La Perle (78, rue Vieille du Temple). This is the perfect place to enjoy a glass and wine. It became famous after Galliano’s xenophobic insults to a Jewish couple. People go there before lunch, after work and at night to enjoy a Pastis. It closes at around 1:00am.
*Le Baron (6 Av Marceau). Paris’ most select club only accepts 150 people per night. Inside, champagne is served on tables and red velvet sofas. It is said the place used to be a discotheque with high-class prostitutes owned by the Russian mafia. Le Baron plays mainly disco music.
*Le Carmen (34 Rue Duperré). Le Carmen is the last stop in Parisian nights. The sumptuous yet elegant decoration can only welcome a decent clientele in a city like Paris.
*Rex Club (5 Boulevard Poissonnière). Paris’ most important club with famous international Dj’s. It’s Ed Banger friendly.
Paris has Europe’s largest flea market. The Marché Aux Puces opens on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays for fans of vintage furniture, second-hand clothes and vinyl records. Avoid the stalls selling imitations. The metro stop is M° Pte de Clignancourt.
