Paris Mon Ami!!!
All looks are from Intermix!
Three days was not enough to absorb all the culture, art, fashion and not to mention the food Paris has to offer!!! Who would have figured that such a minuscule city could be so rich in life! The public transportation of this truly fascinating city made it possible for me to get the most profound experience possible in such a short amount of time. Going from restaurant to restaurant and from the Eiffel Tower to some pit stop shopping on the Champs Elysee to getting a quick macaroon fix at the one and only -Ladurée. My trip experience in Paris was out of this world; and so I listed a few of my favorite places and things to do when visiting Paris so you guys can enjoy it as much as I did.
Where To Stay:
The Hoxton - This seems to be your best bet when travling to Paris on a budget. It's clean, easy, affordable, and very modern! I loved it.
The Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg - I love the location of this hotel! It's across the street from the iconic Crilon hotel, and very central to everything. The service is impeccable.
Where To Eat:
Cafe de flore - Classic French breakfast. Get there early because the croissants will run out! (I know this from personal experience)
Season - Best green pancakes in the game! Their baked egg in avocado is also fabulous.
Carette - Scrumptious pastries with a lovely, authentic French vibe.
Blé sucré - Best chocolate croisant I've EVER had!
Boulangerie Alexine - Must order the ‘Éclairs au chocolat”! The balance in texture and sweetness is insane.
Le Grenier a Pain - Paris'S finest baguettes! (Love grabbing them to go and having them mid day with slices of fresh cheese.)
Chez andre - A classic French lunch. Fab people watching accompanied with a side of one of THE best burgers ever.
Big love – Delicious Italian cuisine with cutest atmosphere. Similar to the Crosby Street Hotel in NYC!
Le du falafel - Best falafel in the area. Sit inside because it’s a funny hectic scene to watch!
L’entrecote – A French classic. A pre set menu of steak frites. Never disappoints!
Lou Lou – Perfect dinner spot to go after drinks at Cafe Marly.
Ferdi - Amazing cheeseburger and exciting people watching!
Le 404 – Small Moroccan cafe, must order the lamb kabobs.
Cafe Marly – Drinks with a view! Go hear around 8pm before heading to dinner at Lou Lou.
Harry’s bar – The actual bar where the iconic bloody marry was created. Loved the richness in history that was so present in the ambiance.
Le Bar du Bristol – Such creative cocktail presentations and the aesthetics of the bar alone is insane!
Where To Shop:
Bon Marché - Best department store ever! Similar to Liberty in London.
Mannoush - A fun variety of different but cool ecentric clothing. French brand you cant find in the states
The whole Le Marais Area - A whole lot of fun boutiques!
Where To Play:
Lv foundation - Highly suggest taking a visit to this architectural extravaganza. The LV foundation museum has a variety of fascinating expositions of art and culture. Very pop!
Tuileries - The Tuileries garden has the most gorgeous colors this time of the year. Perfect place to visit on a sunny day and take pictures!
Louvre - It should be a crime to visit Paris and not go to The Louvre. This former royal palace and modern day museum is home to the Mona Lisa Painting.
Centre Pompidou - Amazing balance of contemporary and modern art exhibitions. There is always a new very provocative exhibit!
Hope you all enjoyed my Paris guide! Where should I go next?!
