Shop - Merci 111 boulevard Beaumarchais 75003 Paris
With its own courtyard, book shop and cafe, Merci remains one of the most popular and well-presented lifestyle stores in Paris. You can spend hour upon hour browsing the extensive floors dedicated to gardening or bespoke wallpaper...
Eat - Robert et Louise - 64 Rue Vieille du Temple, 75003 Paris
Not for the faint hearted or veggies, this family-run restaurant tucked away in the Marais serves up steaks and shoulders of lamb cooked over an open wood fire. We would recommend starting with the escargot or foie gras (when in Rome..) and enjoy the extensive red wine list to accompany your ' viande' . The cave-like interior and quality of meat ensure this spot is always popular, try and book ahead if you can.
Drink - Bespoke - 3 Rue Oberkampf, 75011 Paris
A new addition to the trendy Oberkampf area - this bar has a great cocktail list and small tapas plates to share: pulled pork, sliders, and sweet potato fries. With its mismatched chairs and industrial fit-out, a minuscule DJ booth, and the friendliest staff in Paris, it' s easy to see why there is such a great buzz at Bespoke.
Do - Palais de Tokyo - 13 Avenue du President Wilson, 75116 Paris, France
Always ahead of the curve, the cultural hub of Palais de Tokyo never disappoints; go check out their latest exhibition or one-off screening...With a spacious outdoor terrace, the cafe is a destination in itself - a perfect place to enjoy the long summer evenings.
