Pariscope - city tips!!

Petite Pariscope
Monthly Paris City TIPS :) 

Forever the city of unfolding old-but-new places with secret historic nooks and corners and long-standing establishments here are but a few NEW spots we have discovered this 7th year visiting the city of lights.

1. Le Bouillon Chartier MAP

An institution in Paris, art deco classic restaurant established in 1896 to cater to the cash poor Parisians who wanted quality French fare. Today it maintains this ethos as a budget authentic and enjoyable dining experience in Paris surrounded in history and beautiful atmosphere. Beware it fills up fast lunch or dinner, no bookings. 7 rue de Faubourg 75009 Paris MAP

2. Paris en Seine Website

A cheaper alternative to dining on the Seine at 40euro per person for a 90minute cruise of Paris by night, includes aperitif of arrival, entrée, main dish, dessert and ½ bottle of wine for 2. For 5euro extra (p/p) you can choose a seat at the front of the boat for prime views!

3. Musee Jacquemart Andre:

A small delightful museum and little haven dedicated to the private collection in an opulent 19th Century mansion with Italian Renaissance and 18th Century French painters and masterpieces. Add a decadent tearoom for light lunches and afternoon tea and this is quintessential Paris. 158 Boulevard Haussmann 75008 Paris website

4: Rue Crimieux MAP

In the 12eme is a secret street lined with colourful terraces resembling Londons Portobello Road. A quaint little spot to enjoy a Paris pause. Rue Crimeux 75012 Paris

5. English Bookshops:

English bookstores in Paris; famous Shakespeare & Co, featured in 'Midnight in Paris' and long standing establishment frequented by the likes of Hemingway, Stein and all the writing greats – 37 rue de la Bucherie 75005 MAP; The Abbey Bookshop – 29 rue de la Parcheminerie 75005 MAP; Librairie Galignani – 248 rue de Rivoli 75001 MAP

6: Arnaud Larher Boulangerie

Pick up a warm crispy or pastry of ANYTHING at Arnhaud Larher MAP Winner of the best Paris Boulangerie, 2015! A decadent institution in Montmartre. Take away our goodies to the hidden park known only to locals next to the famous Place du Tertre, behind Place Marcel Ayme. MAP
