Festivals
The summer festival set is coming to a close this month, but fear not, we’re going out with a bang. Cinema au Clair de Lune began last week, but continues until the 11th with a film screening each night, each in a different outdoor venue.

And Festival Classique au Vert, a seven-week-long celebration of classical music from around the world, just kicked off at the Parc Floral and continues until September 15th. You’ll get your traditional concertos and preludes, but some performances offer funkier twists, from a group of Japanese Taiko players to New York style Hip Hop.

One of my personal favorites comes towards the end of the month with Rock en Seine from August 23 – 25, a three-day concert series boasting popular names that have graced my playlists over the past few months, like Alt-J, Kendrick Lamar, and Daughter, to name just a few. And Festival Silhouette, also beginning at the end of the month, offers film screening and concerts in the Parc de la Butte du Chapeau Rouge. Continue Reading »

Music
One of the welcome harbingers of summer has to be the season’s music festival circuit. After a long winter and a dreary, cold spring, all anyone really wants to do is pass the days outdoors. Add some great music and dancing, and everyone feels a little better. There is truly something for everyone as far as summer concerts go, but a few of my favorites this month include the Paris Jazz Festival (June 8 – 28), Fete de la Musique (June 21), and Solidays (June 28 – 30). Sounds will vary from laid-back jazz to popular names like Parov Stelar, The Hives, and Django Django, to name just a few.

Food
Last month pop shop Merci opened its online boutique, and this month Frenchie intends to serve up a to-go menu… I am loving this democratization of Parisian favorites. Frenchie has been touted by foodies and taste makers as one of the top Parisian restaurants over the past few years, and I can only imagine their to-go dishes, rumored to include casual fare like bacon-sprinkled doughnuts, fish and chips, and a Pastrami Reuben made with house-cured meat, will be some of the best in the city as well.

Lobster rolls in Paris? Mais oui! Le Lobster Bar is opening up just in time for warm weather. The only thing that could compete with a lobster roll and a cold beer on a hot summer day might just be fresh tortillas and guacamole… And that’s also happening with Mil Amores Tortilleria, with a little help from the chef at Candelaria. Perfect timing.

Paris Pop-Up

Mark your agendas: the next Paris PopUp dinner, courtesy of Frenchie’s Laura Vidal and Harry Cummins, will take place on/around May 19, with tickets going on sale April 19.

Email theparispopup@gmail.com starting April 19 to score a spot.

March Events in Paris: Haute Couture, Chagall, Orchids and More!

Through July 21: A Chagall exhibition opened at the Musée de Luxembourg last week, the first of the artist’s in France in years. The show, Entre Guerre et Paix (Between War and Peace), focuses on the several wars the artist lived through and the various countries in which he experienced these periods of turmoil. A must-see, for sure.

Until May 20: Soleil Froid (Cold Sun) also opened last week at the Palais de Tokyo, the perfect locale for such a show. The exhibition features pieces by a slew of artists working in varied media that, when experienced together, result in a sort of alternate world. Using vintage cars, concrete human forms, light shows and other abstractions, visitors will recognize a hint of the world we understand in this amalgam of unknown. The show is open particularly late – until midnight – making this one of my top March-weekend-nighttime to-dos.

Until July 6: The world of French haute couture is the kind of club that most only preview through magazines, film, television or literature. The show that opened at the Hotel de Ville this week, however, invites novices and specialists alike to delve into the world of haute couture design through photos and statement garments created by some of the most renowned classic designers.

February in Paris: Valentine’s Day, Fashion Week and Two New Bistros

Making Magique

February is the time to be in Paris, so why not be a part of it? We’re offering some exceptionally special discounts on our beautiful Paris apartments in February and March, and though it may be a bit cliché, we can’t think of a better Valentine’s Day gift than surprising your chéri(e) with a trip to Paris. Let us know if you want to plan a last-minute getaway here.

L’Amour: This Valentine’s day you could dine at the Eiffel Tower or stroll through St Germain tasting all the heart-shaped sweets, or you could indulge in a little quirk and collective romanticism. Join fellow lovebirds on the Pont au Double for the Freeze Romantique, a sort of reverse flash mob where couples are invited to join in five minutes of public smooching. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely would recommend a stroll over to Laduree, Pierre Herme, et al afterwards – if only to make up the calories.

December Events Paris: Ice Skating, Christmas Trees, Notre Dame, Omnivore and more . . .

Whether you’re going to Paris for the holidays or just for some wintertime fun, there’s plenty happening this month to keep you entertained! – Genevieve

Christmas displays in Paris (abrunete)

Holiday Fun
December may be the best month to take in Notre Dame. They have their classic Christmas tree up in the square and a light/music show inside the nave each hour throughout December. Go on December 18th and stay for the Monteverdi Vespers concert. Beginning December 12, a special seating structure in the square will be open to the public, offering visitors a different perspective on the cathedral’s beautiful stained glass windows.

November Events in Paris: Le Fooding, Pitchfork Paris and More!

(lefooding.com)

Through December 16: A self-proclaimed “wandering space for the undiscovered, unintentional and untrained artists of our times,” The Museum of Everything’s Paris exhibition – and concept at large – are bucking the norm and showcasing pieces that may not otherwise see a museum’s walls. “Exhibition #1.1,” as its called, includes works of over 500 self-taught creators, working in various media and with inspiration that spans the globe.

Through November 4: Salon du Chocolat: Likely the most delicious event this month, the Salon du Chocolat offers a little something for anyone with a sweet tooth. There is an entrance fee, but once inside the expo space you will be greeted by the wafting scent of cacao, and visual displays of all the chocolate your heart could desire. Normally, picking up these kinds of specialty items would include a day of traipsing around Paris, but here they are all congregated, ready to be tasted and taken home. Continue Reading »
