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. This installment will be a convivial brunch/lunch setup, with mixologists on hand, sweet music, and possibly a surprise appearance from across the channel. Can’t wait! Email [email protected] starting April 19 to score a spot.

April 3 – May 4: The 80s in New York was undoubtedly a prolific time for young artists and musicians living in the city. Jeannette Montgomery Barron’s portraits of the period’s major players (Warhol, Haring, Basquiat, Sherman, Herzog et al) on view at SCENE at Colette this month, capture the essence of those who made up this infamous Soho art scene.

L’Atlas’ artwork (

April 4 – 28: French artist L’Atlas’ formal education in calligraphy and archeology lend a philosophical, mystical bent to his immediately recognizable, labyrinthine graffiti pieces. Although he mostly only produces work for galleries now, Stay Inside (at Confluences, Espace des Arts Urbains for just a few short weeks) includes work from his street art days as well.

Opening April 19: One of the largest showings of American artist Keith Haring – whose portrait is included in the SCENE exhibition at Colette – will be on display at Le CENTQUATRE, in conjunction with the Musee de l’Art Moderne. The Political Line retraces the causes Haring fought for through his work: AIDS, apartheid, the threat of nuclear war… Undoubtedly an epic and unmissable exhibition.


Thru April 30: The WIHMini Festival is back for a third year after much success. The month-long celebration of house/electro/techno hits le Showcase, located beneath the Pont Alexandre III, with headliners like Digitalism and Sven Väth.

Jing, thank you for your post. Unfortunately, as these are all Parisian events sometimes they are in French… if you google the titles you may find English versions. Good luck!
