Paris in spring time! Isn’t that what we all dream of: cherry blossom trees aromatizing the Luxembourg gardens, people peeling off their heavy long coats for the lighter shorter bomber options.

Les Bain Hotel Paris got a bad rep for the small rooms but if you don’t mind “paris sized” rooms you’re practically in one of the best areas of Paris to step out and wander around – walking distance from the Centre Pompidou and the Marais.
Les Bains Hotel Paris
Address: 7 Rue du Bourg l’Abbé, 75003 Paris
Won’t be the same again when you discover the almond and coconut oil Mocha at Wild and The Moon Juice bar. Ok ok… so ideally it’s the perfect place to go for a vegan or gluten free meal / snack, but the coffee is really good too!
Address: Wild and the Moon – Juice Bar.
55 Rue Charlot 75003
Around on Rue des Vinagriers and Rue Lucien Sampaix if you’re close to Canal St. Matin… one of my fave side streets. You’ll find Sunken Chip if you’re homesick for some fish and chips, L’Agence a cosy bar with tapas at really decent price, super mixed aged ambiance with locals, CRAFT Coffee for some coworking and Saam the bomb Korean restaurant, Nordkraft with some cool house wear and clothing are all here.
Centquatre / 104 Paris – Stop off the metro at Riquet (line 7) and walk over to this wonder that used to be an old house stable turned multiusage art space . There is an ongoing Photo exhibition – some of it is free.
There is also 2 restaurants there, a thrift shop with clothing and furniture, a bookstore, and a pizza truck outside.
Spotlight on Seydou Keita at the Grand Palais is much-anticipated here in Paris. Until July 11 2016, 10 Euros.
