Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For Whitewaller’s inaugural London&Paris issue, out for FIAC 2016, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things Paris—that shared with us how to navigate the city during the art fair. Next up, co-owner of Mace (New York) and owner of Danico (Paris), Nico de Soto, who shares his top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.
WHERE TO EAT
L’ami Jean, David Toutain, Daroco, Miznon, Le Mary Celeste, Frenchie, Gravity Bar, Artisan, PasDeLoup, and Hero… The grilled cheese sandwich at Mabel is amazing. The riz au lait at L’ami Jean. Fromagerie Quatrehomme for cheese.
WHERE TO SIP
Besides my bar Danico, Mabel and their “Nutty by Nature” cocktail—an amazing clarified milk punch with peanut oil. Sherry Butt, Little Red Door, Baton Rouge, Tiger, Experimental Cocktail Club, Castor Club, Le Bar du Bristol, CopperBay, and Le Syndicat…
WHERE TO NETWORK
All my friends’ bars cited above.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Palais de Tokyo, Centre Pompidou, La Maison Rouge, and Fondation Louis Vuitton.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
Glass, Candelaria, Rex Club, Dirty Dick, Concrete…
WHERE TO RELAX
I like to sit at Café Kitsuné, which is not far from Danico. Notre Dame, Île Saint-Louis, Square du Vert-Galant, and Pont des Arts are nice walks. I like to go for a run at Parc des Buttes Chaumont, where you have an unmissable view from the High Point.
