Petite Pariscope - City Tips!

Monthly Tips!

A few NEW Petite Paris tips and places!

1. Cent Quatre
A cool Cultural space in Paris

A cool public art space in the 19th where artists of all types work in studios on site, allowing the public to view their work in production. Watch dancers and perfomers, work from your laptop (free Wi-Fi), have lunch at the Cafe Cache, second hand store, gift stores, great bookstore with regular author readings - it can easily become a favourite saturday morning spot.

2. Musee Gustav Moreau
Romantic and dramatic art

Amazing find- a delightful little museum dedicated to the works of symbolist French painter (9th district) combines the small private apartment of Gustav (1826-98). Utterly dramatic and beautiful with walls covered in Gustavs amazing and striking detailed art based mostly on myths and legends.  MAP

3. Less Petite Joueurs
For authentic Parisian Gypsy Jazz night

Les Petits Joueurs is a bustling bistro with weekly Gypsy Jazz concerts. The biggest Jazz Manouche names in France are regulars here, eg Stephane Wrembel, who wrote the theme track for Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris. Traditional French food. Concerts @ 9.00pm. Jam sessions @ 11pm  MAP
