    Sinnedk, I have always disliked that scene although I like that movie otherwise. For some some strange reason I find that scene utterly obscene and vulgar, even though I am a fan of porn and the concept of 'pussy' all around [​IMG]

    I'm assuming you mean clothes shopping:
    -Le bon marché (best department store, the bookstore and food dept are also good)
    -L'éclaireur rue Hérold and Malher (avant-garde & designer)
    -Frenchtrotters (heritage/workwear)
    -Pigalle if you wanna see the "french Supreme"
    -Massaro to visit a bespoke shoemaker atelier and see the haute couture creations made for Chanel)
    -RA (avant-garde)
    -Do the luxury shopping walk: start on rue saint-honoré and go up to faubourg saint-honoré. You’ll see Colette, Hermès, Lanvin, YSL, watches etc + it is a nice walk.

    Fashion week hangout (so in Le Marais) :
    -Café Charlot or Le Progrès. Food is decent at Charlot but that's about it.
    -Stolly’s (anglo bar but a certain clique of fashion peeps and rockers hangs out there)
    -Really good coffee in Paris (American-San-Francisco style hipster coffee shop): Cafothèque. It is near the Maison Européenne de la photographie if you wanna see the David Lynch photo expo.

    Fashion parties/clubs:
    -People will go to: Le Silencio, Le Baron, Le Montana

    Food
    If you want to eat boeuf Bourguignon at 4 in the morning Chez Denise is a traditional eatery in Les Halles open 24 hours. Good hearty French food where night workers used to have a meal. Cheap for what it is and you won’t finish your plate.
    Le colimaçon (http://www.lafourchette.com/2_restaurant/restaurant_Paris/restaurant_Le_Colimacon/10930/) is a good tradish French eatery in Le Marais
    -Macarons: go to Ladurée and get the lemon pie. It’s a corny, touristy place (although high-end) but I’m not a dessert person and I love the pie. Another good sweets place is Sadaharu Aoki. There’s also Pain de sucre in Le Marais
    -Oysters: Huîtrerie Régis in the 6th
    -There is also a good one at Metro Place Monge in the 5th with a place that sells urchins nearby.
    -La cantine Vietnamienne (http://www.tripadvisor.fr/ShowUserR...397345-Foyer_Vietnam-Paris_Ile_de_France.html) is a cheap viet in le quartier Latin that I like, there are a lot of cheap restaurants around so you should to to place Monge, check out la Cantine then maybe the market, it’s all within a 5 minute walk.
    -Another good place in the 5th: la fourmi ailée, 8 rue Fouarre close to the garden of Saint Julien le Pauvre church (oldest and only remaining romanesque church in Paris if I remember correctly, apparently the oldest tree in Paris is also in that garden. it's right next to the shakespeare & co bookstore).
    -La maison des 3 thés in the 5th is also a super good teahouse
    -A hype place for burgers: Hôtel Amour, ok if you’re taking someone out.
    -Breakfast in America in le Marais is good for American food, you sometimes have to wait
    -Have couscous at Chez Omar in Le Marais or go to the hipster area near Metro Poissonnière to eat at La Fidélité or chez Jeanette.



    Books:
    -Go to Karl Lagerfeld’s bookstore (7L) in the 6th, lots of good artbooks and mags and English-friendly. There are good bookstores in Paris but they mainly cater to French speakers, this one is international.
    -Shakespeare & Co is the classic English bookstore

    To add a few suggestions re Paris:
    -Les Planches in the 1st is another good night spot (go thursday for Au Bonheur des Dames)
    -Pierre Herme for best macarons in Paris
    -Jacques Genin for chocolate and pastries
    -L'As du Fallafel in the Marais for the best falafel you've ever had

    I would also highly recommend getting the "Food Lover's Guide to Paris" app by Patricia Wells for offline, gps-enabled search and reviews of great restaurants and food stores all over Paris. I used this every day when I was there for a few months.

    TBH for restaurants I mostly copypasted something I had sent by PM to a member. I didn't put much in the way of serious/high quality eating, just places in the 5th and some decent Marais hangout. Not going to start a huge paris restaurant thread but if you want some higher end eating just let me know.


    Les planches is where you go when you're underage but can buy bottles, I'm assuming tirailleur doesn't want to experience this. Music in Paris usually sucks unless it's Le Rex or Concrete. Fashion week parties or people hang out at the three (exclusive) places I mentioned. If you are used to american clubbing keep in mind people arrive after midnight and leave at 3-5.

    Typical fascist week evening planning:

    -Eat at whatever
    -Go drink at Charlot until 12-12:30
    -Go out to where the party is held

    ah man thanks guys.

    After looking at my schedule seems like I might only have only one day for leisure. I will definitely try to fulfill all these before I leave.

    Yeah, I've got my eyes on a few things but finding stuff that fits isn't all that easy. Had to return some MMM sidezips because they were too big :(

    Definitely go to a Moroccan and a Vietnamese restaurant.

    Dunno if this is ironic but those two being former colonies, moroccan and Vietnamese can be really good cheap eateries.

    It's not ironic, it's the same thing with Indian food in England.

    Wasn't planning to. After almost 10 years it's become an institution.

    Totally agree. I've always been a fan of the Frango's and it's tough to beat their One Day Sales.

    This is in no way a dig at you, Fumma, it's just a bad reference that only people over 25 years of age from Seattle will get.
