Destination: Paris

It’s the end of September, which means it is my favorite time of the year to visit Paris. Living in Los Angeles we don’t experience many seasons, but autumn in Paris is something I would hate to miss. Although I am here for Fashion Week, it is only appropriate that I eat and shop my way around this city throughout my stay. Here are some of my favorite places to eat, drink and shop . . .

Do you have any suggestions for me while I’m here? 

To Eat & Drink

01. The Beef Club Ballroom {58 rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau} // I could never come to this city without going to this trendy restaurant. The Beef Club Ballroom is known to have some of the best meats in all of Paris, but be sure to book a reservation in advance as it tends to be quite busy at night. Enjoy an amazing dinner then head downstairs to the basement and check out their secret cocktail bar and after hours night club.

02. L’Avenue {41 avenue Montaigne} // I’ll take any excuse to get dressed up for a swanky Parisian dinner any day. This restaurant is definitely a must when I am in Paris, the atmosphere is beautiful and intimate and not to mention to the food is outstanding.

03. Castor Club  {14 rue Hautefeuille} // Called one of the best bars in the world and for good reason, this bar has specialty handmade cocktails that are out of this world. I cannot recommend any specific drink or reflect on my favorite because their menu is different every time I go, but this keeps me coming back to see what the latest and greatest drink is in the city. With a mellow and dimly lit atmosphere this cocktail bar comes highly recommended.

04. L’Ami Jean {27 rue Malar} // If you are looking for a very authentic French restaurant experience than I would suggest L’Ami Jean. They have an innovative menu with unique entrees all cooked in a very traditional French way. Served as a prix fix menu, you will leave having eaten more than you ever thought you could.

05. Hôtel Costes {239 Rue Saint Honoré} // With their restaurant located on the terrace, this is the place to go on a warm fall night. Enjoy the cozy and romantic outdoor atmosphere, amongst a very fashionable and trendy crowd.

To Shop

01. Merci {111 boulevard Beaumarchais} // Having written about this concept store in a previous post, Merci is still and probably always will be one of my favorite stores in Paris. I love taking my time looking through this store discovering new designers and pieces to fall in love with. They also have a great interior home goods section that never fails to bring new inspiration ideas to my home.

02. Gabrielle Geppert {31 Galerie de Montpensier} // There is something about vintage shopping in Paris that sounds more attractive than in the states. If you are into vintage shopping, than Gabrielle Geppert is the store for you and this vintage shop is by far the best one I’ve ever been to. I love shopping here and finding unique pieces that I could never find or repurchase anywhere else, it makes the item that much more special and did I mention it’s located inside the walls of a beautiful garden? You cannot go to Paris without stopping in here.

03. Shakespeare and Co. {37 rue de la Bûcherie} // Whenever I find a cozy bookstore in a new city it automatically goes on my favorites list and Shakespeare and Co. is no exception. Serving as both a bookstore and reading library, it is easy to spend hours on end exploring the bookshelves and picking out new books to read. This bookstore is a must see while in Paris.

04. Colette {213 Rue Saint Honoré} // Another popular concept store, where you can find anything and everything hip. From clothes, shoes and bags to home decor, magazines and records, this shop is easy to get lost in.  It’s hard to have any expectations walking in, as they have such unique merchandise. This boutique will leave you thinking “how did they ever find that?”

05. The Nose {20 Rue Bachaumont} // A very hip shop in Paris where you can undoubtably find any perfume fragrance you could ever dream of. Upon entering the store the friendly staff will ask you to fill out a survey called a perfume diagnostics, the clerk will review your answers and then show you to the top five most suitable fragrances for you based off of your answers. I like to try wearing different scents, so this unique and very daintily decorate boutique is a fun place to pop in.

  • Paris in the Fall is fabulous, by then all the locals had mostly returned from their vacations, the city will fill up with more interesting locals plus tourists people and that’s what makes Paris is so special! Full force and fabulous France! 🙂

    Merci for sharing such beautiful photos of the lovely city! 🙂

    You have go to this place in Montmarte! It’s a hole in the wall fondue place where they give you a baby bottle filled with wine. Amazing. The food is so good! https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g187147-d779422-Reviews-Le_Refuge_des_Fondus-Paris_Ile_de_France.html

    For vintage shopping, you need to go to Vintage Bar. So much Chanel!!! I will forever regret not buying a gold Chanel charm bracelet when I studied abroad there. It haunts me to this day!

  • The Vintage Store sounds amazing and makes me wanna visit Paris so bad. They say people find love in Paris, I’d totally fall in love with the cafes and alleys and the food and fashion and just everything, and the eiffel tower of course. 🙂 Loved the pictures!

  • Obsessed with all things Paris! I’ll have to check out your favorites! Maybe I’ll see you there for PFW next fall!

    Miznon and Cafe Breizh in the Marias, the base basement cafe at Merci, and du pain et des idees are all not to miss!

  • Great tips for my next visit to this wonderful city!

  • moois van ‘ me ‘

    Next to sheakspeare and Co there is a coffee bar ( from the shop ) and they have the best coffee in Paris. At the other side of the store there is a good restaurant ( le petit chatelet), one of my favorites in Paris.
    I also like ‘ au pied du cathedrale ‘ at mon martre ( nearby metro station lamarck caulaincourt ) . Not trendy at all but good french food.
    Very trendy tastfull and good for the environment is ‘ la recyclerie” nearby metro station porte de clignancourt;
    I’n not a big shopper but when I’m in Paris I always buy some fabric at the foot of sacré couer chez marché saint pierre.
    And I like to buy perfume at guerlain at the champs elysees.
    I ike to visit musea and cultural stuff in paris and wrote a lot of blog posts about it ( in dutch, but with a lot of pictures 😉 ) .
    Enjoy your stay there ( and I wish I was in Paris too ) !
