AUGUST IN PARIS- Things to-do cheat sheet for your trip!
There’s something to be said about the emptying out of Paris in August each year! At the beginning of July, your friends start to ask where you are going on vacation, not “if” you are going on vacation. So you see my drift? It’s such a part of the culture to take at least 3 weeks off, that you don’t want to be stuck guessing what restaurants and cafes are open in the summer period.
So I’ve rounded up a list of some places you can bet on. Things to get into this month: food, drink, hotels, art and more. it’s a super quick list (but hopefully effective).
If you’re coming to Paris for the first time let me show you around with one of my tours – of my favoriste neighbourhood, The Marais where I lived for 6 years and Montmartre where I presently live. You can see more here.
Also wanted to say a big thank you to eveyone that came out to our July Meet up in the Park, where we met for yoga and picnic. I’m beyond words with the community that we have managed to build online and off. We are all so kick-ass and kind! I really look forward to meeting you all here in real life 🙂
My son and I recently went to Versailles to take part in a baking workshop by Molly J Wilk and it was one of the most pleasurable expereinces we’ve ever done as a mom and son duo! We made the french pastry Mille Feuille ( photos here on insgram of the results) and we were in love with Molly’s cheerful personality and expert tips. My son has always dreamt of being a baker and I have to say this class with Molly showed him that it can be fun too!
Levantine – houmous bar
delicious Israeli food, and of course the humous is to die for
Address: 36 Rue Bichat, 75010 Paris
Jones -Great seasonal food and organic wine list, at a price that can’t be beaten for the quality. The wonderful atmosphere is trendy cool and the staff is quite helpful.
Address: 43 Rue Godefroy Cavaignac, 75011 Paris
Small place but big on flavors for the cocktails.
Address: 12 Rue Saint-Bernard, 75011 Paris
This month The Hood is taking over Citizen Hotel along the Canal and brings thier coffee making skills! Come have a Banh Mi – we may run into each other 🙂
Alfred Sommier Hotel
A five-star hotel with a private garden. great for couples or even solo travelers (room as a bit small) but this is Paris! It’s pretty with strong family roots as it was a “hotel particulier”
There’s a new hotel Okko and we couldnt be more excited. I discovred it while delivering a (PARIS FOODIE BAG) and it was so cute and colorful, and not to mention centrally located.
