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, founder of Sam Art Projects, Sandra Hegedüs, who shares her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.
WHERE TO EAT
I go at least twice a week to the very traditional and historic restaurant in Montparnasse La Closerie des Lilas, where I always eat the same thing: Entrecôte Bearnaise with string beans. Le Duc has the best fish in Paris. I always ask for Aiguilletes de Bar au citron (seabass).
WHERE TO SIP
I am Brazilian so I love a good caïpirinha! My favorite is at AREA, a Brazilian/Lebanese restaurant near Bastille. Edu the owner is an art lover. In the Montparnasse area is a very old bar where mostly writers go, the Rosebud. I have my vodka-orange there.
WHERE TO NETWORK
The best place to network is the Tokyo Art Club at Palais de Tokyo. They have great activities.
WHERE TO SEE ART
The Palais de Tokyo, Fondation Cartier, Fondation Ricard, and La Maison Rouge.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
Just check what Rosane Mazzer is doing. She always organizes the best parties!
WHERE TO RELAX
Head to the last floor of the hotel tower which is at Palais des Congrès at Porte Maillot. Have a drink and enjoy the best view in Paris.
