Copperbay a large cocktail bar offering decent priced (most start at 9 euros) between Faubourg Saint-Denis and Republic. Friendly staff and perfect for an after work drink or chilling with pals (small space though). Closed Sunday and Monday.

Paris wouldn’t be the same without some sultry night where you can “faire des betises!” right? This month I’ve discovered A la folie Paris – at La Villette this massive multi use space houses some of the best parties and nightlife in paris from Voguing to the After party for the Tattoo Mondial Trade show 2016.
If you’re looking for a cool place to have yoga (it’s in French though) Le Perchoir welcomes you and your yogi pals every monday night for a fit and relaxing session with Claire of GET Yogi (she speaks english so you can tell her at the beginning of the class if you’re not fluent). www.getyogi.fr
Cheese and speciality shop La Fine épicerie de la Goutte d’Or is my go to place for the most addictive Gouda and truffle cheese. Not to mention the price is “correct” when compared to other shops close by. This is a new spot in the La Goutte D’or that’s slowly changing the neighborhood and its food selection. Closed on Mondays.
60 rue Stephenson 75018 Paris
The team at Que Faire Paris has done a great job with a walking tour that takes us to some of the monumental spots of the late great French novelist Colette.
