Paris Travel Guide

August 13, 2019

 

Stay

  • Hotel Alfred Sommier: A classic Parisian boutique hotel that used to be the home of a sugar industrialist. We stayed here for my bachelorette & absolutely loved everything about it- the staff, location and rooms were perfect!

  • W Hotel Opera: Across from the Opera house and just a few blocks from Galleries Lafayette (the best department stores)- the rooms are small but clean and the staff is very friendly!

  • The Hoxton: Located in Le Marais- an area of cobbled streets and stylish boutiques by day, and busy bistros and bars by night.

  • Hotel Costes: One of the trendiest boutique hotels with dim lights and incredible beats- definitely one of my favs. If you don't stay here, reserve a meal in the courtyard.

  • Castille Paris: Located on Rue Cambon, the high-end shopping district. The regular rooms are small- book a suite or try to get upgraded.

  • Hotel de Crillon: Bougie but worth it. A timeless Parisian landmark overlooking Place de la Concorde. If you're looking for a lux stay, book here.

  • Four Seasons Hotel George V: The chicest hotel in Paris right off the Champs-Élysees. The lux hotel has 3 renowned restaurants, a marble courtyard, and a luxe spa, plus an indoor pool, a hot tub, a sauna and a steam room.

 

Eat:

  • Wild and the Moon: Pop in for cold pressed juices and vegan snacks

  • Season: Healthy brunch spot with avo toast and matcha latte's

  • Breizh Cafe: If you're looking for the famous Parisian crepes, look no further!

  • Café de Flore: Classic Parisian cafe for lunch

  • Hotel Costes: Brunch, lunch, dinner, whatever- come here for a trendy night of people watching and good food

  • LouLou: One of my favorite restaurants in Paris and located in the gorgeous Louvre. Sit outdoors (if the weather permits) and get the truffle pasta- TRUST

  • Balagan: Insanely hard to get a reservation at, but SO worth it. The mediterranean spot has two seatings a night- I suggest getting the later one (10pm) and watching the restaurant turn up! p.s the food is unreal!

  • L'Avenue: A can't miss lunch spot perfect for people watching and rosé. Also located on Avenue Montaigne- a high end street for shopping Chanel, Dior, Celine, etc.

  • Monsieur Bleu: Gorgeous upscale Michelin restaurant with the perfect view of the Eiffel Tower

  • Ferdi: Make a reservation and get the burger

  • Kinugawa: If you're in the mood for Japanese, this is for you. Make sure to make a reservation!

  • Le 404: We stumbled on this Moroccan restaurant near Le Marais and were pleasantly surprised. The cozy spot had the friendliest staff and incredible food!

 

After Dinner:

  • You can't miss a sexy cabaret show when in Paris! Check out Lido or Crazy Horse- both highly recommended! Watch the topless, but classes ladies do their thing while sipping on a glass of champagne.

  • Bar Hemingway (at the Ritz): F. Scott Fitzgerald had his favorite seat; Ernest Hemingway and Gary Cooper made it the epicenter of their life in Paris and would sit and talk for hours…  This warm and intimate bar with major history is worth grabbing a drink (or two) at!

  • Rue Recamier: If you're looking for the best soufflé in Paris, look no further! Make a 10/11pm reservation after dinner and have a classic Parisian evening. I recommend skipping the savory and trying a few of the sweet soufflé flavors!

 

Explore:

  • Tower Eiffel: Need I say more? 

  • The Louvre: The world's largest museum (home of the Mona Lisa) and a historic monument

  • Arc De Triomphe: One of the most famous monuments in Paris 

  • Fondation Louis Vuitton: Art museum and cultural center with can't miss architecture and amazing exhibits

  • Galerie Perrotin: Contemporary art gallery in Le Marais

  • Palais de Tokyo Musuem: A building dedicated to modern and contemporary art

  • Seine River: Go for a boat ride on the beautiful river to see all the city has to offer. I would advise against the boat ride that includes dinner as the actual city has so much to offer from a culinary perspective

 

Workout:

  • BarreShape: 55 minutes of a dynamic exercises alternating between the barre and the mat

  • Snake and Twist: Pilates and hot yoga with amazing vibes

  • The Daily Method: Barre class taught in French & English

  • TIHHY: Stands for Tres Intense Hip Hop Yoga

  • Mirz Yoga: Gorgeous yoga studio with amazing vibes and greenery

  • Dynamo Cycling: If you're craving a SoulCycle-like class, this is almost identical, but taught in French!

  • Kiwill: Another indoor-cycling studio

  • Barry's Bootcamp: If you want to stick to the NYC basics, Barry's recently opened up a gorgeous studio 

 

Beauty:

  • Le Bristol Spa: Treat yo'self

  • Facial at Biologique Recherche: One of my favorite skincare brands has a spa on Champs-Élysées- splurge on the facial
