This week, we’re covering FIAC in Paris, as well as its surrounding events. To give you an insider look at the city, we’re talking to those in-the-know, who are sharing their favorite spots to dine, drink, relax, and see art at. Below, we hear from the CEO and co-founder of Raleigh & Drake, Patrick Sarkissian.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Loulou is an amazing spot for dinner, with great food and even better views of the Louvre. For traditional and delicious French food, I love going to La Pointe Du Grouin for an experience that is as Parisian as it gets. For amazing cocktails, head to Le Très Particulier, located behind the Montmartre hill, for elaborate cocktails—it’s truly a hidden gem!
WHERE TO SEE ART
Palais de Tokyo has an amazing collection of both emerging and established artists, and really provides an engaging experience.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
I love going to Rosa Bonheur at Buttes Chaumont—it’s hidden in one of the most spectacular parks of the city and has gorgeous views of the Paris skyline. One of my favorite places to be in Paris is in Le Marais. The historic area has beautiful architecture but is also very edgy, artsy, and full of life!
