Paris City Guide: Where to go after Maison et Objet

Blog Ethnic Chic Paris City Guide

A lot of the design lovers will travel to Paris next month for the recurring Maison et Objet fair. For us it is more interesting to visit the fair in January because that one is together with the Deco-Off: the fabric and wallpaper Walhalla! So unfortunately we will have to skip this one, but for those who are going, we selected some new hotspots you should consider, read on.

Maison et Objet

Although the fair takes always a lot of energy, it’s a good time of the year to get re-inspired too. The Milan Design Week is already five months ago and during the summer holiday, nothing really special happened in design-world ;).We can all use this new boost! So, the fair is from 2-6 September and this year the theme is ‘House of Games’. Rich of signs, shapes, colours and tales and reset creation. But what do we do after the fair? Paris is magical, don’t let the days flying by without fine dining and sipping a delicious cocktail here and there.

Where to sleep

After a construction of four years, The Ritz just re-opened in June (2016). With all high expectations, the makeover was worth a four hundred and fifty million dollars, it is still a mystery for us how it looks. But next January we will and we can’t wait! One suite is dedicated to Coco Chanel, who lived for 34 years in the hotel, and the spa will be stacked with Chanel beauty products! With three restaurants, three bars and a huge garden, the new Ritz Paris will be a festive for sure!

Looking for a small boutique hotel? With its five suits, restaurant, tearoom, cocktail and tapas bar the Hotel Particulier Montmartre is everything you need. One of the city’s hidden gems with secret garden.

Where to eat

A while ago we created our favourite top 10 of best restaurants in Paris. But Paris never sleeps. Here are some restaurants we would like to add. To start with The Ritz, since the re-opening you should really visit one of the three new restaurants: the art-deco Bistro Bar Ritz, the refined L’espadon and the Parisian brasserie Bar Vendôme.

To stay in ‘hotel-restaurants-category’, the restaurant you see in the image above is one you should consider: Restaurant Le Cinq. Hidden in palace-hotel George V (managed by Four Seasons since 1997), the restaurant is one of the best-loved dining venues in Paris!

Where to drink

Just a fun bar, with a relaxed atmosphere and very theatrical interior. The Clown Bar is a great option if you’re too tired too dress up and just want to have some fun.

Cake instead of Laduree

Nothing beats Laduree, but if you consider skipping Laduree for once in your lifetime, Nina’s is your second best option to eat delicious cake.

City garden to relax

If you’re near Le Marais and not around Hotel Particulier Montmartre’s garden, the Pavillon de la Reine has also a great backyard terrace where you can re-charge instantly! Order a tea and get zen.

Best Memory of Paris

Last but no least, save your best memories. The goddess candle scent of Hotel Costes ‘Brown’ (spicy perfect) will always remind you of Paris in its best ways. Go get it!

It’s been a pleasure to prepare this guide for you, and also a little bit of a torture. Can’t wait another six months before we go. Magical Paris: eat, drink, sleep and repeat ;).
