WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Orient Extreme is a must during FIAC as it’s walking distance from the Grand Palais. Monsieur Bleu at Palais de Tokyo is one of my favorite places for dinner on a terrace at night. Café de Flore is great for a very French aperitif, and Le Royal Monceau is always the best bar.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Palais de Tokyo, Centre Pompidou, Musée d’Orsay, Perrotin, kamel mennour, Marian Goodman, Sotheby’s, Christie’s, and Fondation Louis Vuitton.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
Chez Castel is a very Parisian nightclub. Bar du Plaza for a lounge atmosphere. Le Montana for a relaxing drink. And Spa Dior at the Plaza Athénée, see Carita for the best facial with Christine.
