Nightlife in Paris: A Trendy Night in the Haut Marais

It’s virtually impossible to picture the humble beginnings of the überhip Haut Marais as one of the most undesirable neighborhoods in Paris. The product of several decades of gentrification, this former swamp has since been polished into the swank stomping ground of the city’s hauts sophistiqués. At any given time, these young, stylish professionals decorate the popular locales […]

Paris Secrets: An Afternoon in the Japanese Quarter

In the nest of winding streets between the Palais Royal and Opéra, a batch of Japanese restaurants and businesses unassumingly sprout out of the area’s Haussmannian buildings to form one of the best Paris secrets: a booming Japanese quarter.
