We’re kicking off summer with the return of Les Heures Heureuses from July 5 – 7.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about how to sign-up.

What better way to celebrate this week’s warmer temperatures than with a roving happy hour? Les Heures Heureuses returns tonight and runs through Friday, offering food- and drink-inspired strolls across the city – from Oberkampf to Batignolles – with two-euro happy hour specials at participating restos and bars along the way.

July Events in Paris: Le Fooding, Les Soldes, Summer Music Festivals and More

Until July 30 – Les Soldes: It’s that time of year again. The five-week summer shopping madness has begun; shops all over our favorite city are showing off their discounts, beckoning shoppers inside. Given the less-than-dreamy spring Paris just had, bargains should be even more irresistible than usual.

July 1- 9: There are a whole slew of concerts to experience this summer, and music festivals make this a far simpler undertaking (not to mention a bit easier on our wallets). One of my favorites for this month is Days Off. Events are selling out, but you can still catch the likes of Beck, Lou Doillon and James Blake if you jump on those tickets quickly.

July 6: The Paris Wine Company, a venture started by Joshua Adler formerly of Spring, is hosting its launch party at Verjus, one of our favorite restaurants. You can reserve a picnic lunch to enjoy from 12-2pm, and then stick around for free (yes, free!) tastings from 4-6pm. Continue Reading »

July Events in London: Mustache Wrestling & Rooftop Film Screenings

Believe it or not, Paris is not the center of the universe (not all the time, anyway). There are actually a decent amount of things to do in another nearby metropolis, one with slightly worse weather and significantly more polite locals. This month, we bring you our first edition of our London events guide, courtesy of our friend Claire from the fantastic blog, Lola is beauty. -Geneviève

At the Chap Olympiad (Sadmafioso)

During the summer, London plays host to a jam-packed schedule of festivals, exhibitions and pop-ups, and this summer is no exception. With flagrant disregard for the realities of British summertime weather, many of these July events are actually scheduled to take place in the open air!

At Frank’s (Tim Bradshaw)

It’ll be fine as long as you check the weather forecast five minutes before you go out and layer up for all eventualities. Apparently during July there’s also something called Wimbledon and some other kind of major sporting event taking place, but we’re not talking about that here. There’s so much more going on in London, whatever you’re into (except sport.)

Project Play Me – Pianos all over Paris  to be played! (My Little Paris)

La Bouffe

Chez Aline: Delphine Zampetti, former chef at Le Verre Volé, recently opened this new resto. Don’t let the “chevaline” sign deter you, Chez Aline is a great spot for an affordable and simply delicious lunch.

Wanderlust: Everything (okay, almost everything) we could want in a space: outdoor terrace, cinema, restaurant, bar, club and even yoga. This hip new spot in the 13th has something for every mood. Continue Reading »
