On the Scene

Ô Chateau: Paris’ Trendiest Wine Bar

Story by Linda Donahue. Photos courtesy of Ô Chateau.

I first met Olivier Magny in an airport. It was early morning on Thanksgiving Day, 2009. Orly Airport was barely awake, much like the passengers and staff who mulled about sleepily. But Olivier was alert, excited and ready to charm, and his energy was infectious. (more…)


Tee in Paris: Paris for Golfers

Story by Sophie Delon

When one thinks of golfing getaways, Paris probably doesn’t make it to the top of the list. So most people are pretty surprised to find out that there are actually quite a few ways to hit the links in the French capital, with more than a few courses to choose from in and around the city. (more…)


The Architect of a Modern Paris

Story edited by Sophie Delon

Most visitors walking along the Champs-Élysées stop to admire the C42 Citroën building, although they don’t always know that it’s the work of Manuelle Gautrand. This talented French architect, who has just breathed new life into the Gaîté lyrique, gives us her views on the capital and her vision of the future face of Paris. Born in Montpellier in the south of France, the architect has lived in Paris for fifteen years and considers the French capital dear to her heart.

The Buzz on the Bars of Paris

Story by Sophie Delon

Some of the trendiest bars in Paris are all about originality, whether it’s in the decoration, the musical environment or simply in the atmosphere created by its regulars. (more…)


The Hotel Bars of Paris

Story edited by Sophie Delon

There are hotel bars, and then there are the hotel bars of Paris. Sure, some are your standard, run-of-the-mill establishment, but it’s the ones that have gone out of their way to make an impression that stand out. Some have gone cozy, while others prefer a quirky atmosphere, attracting clients whose numbers vie with the endless list of cocktails. The success of these bars usually stems from several elements that make them places that clients want to return to: the décor – often the work of a well-known contemporary designer – the musical ambiance, and the talent of the barmen and the originality of their often exclusive creations.

This multidisciplinary space draws people from all walks of life particularly foreign visitors to the capital.

Behind the Scenes in Paris: Portes Ouvertes de Belleville

paris-art-bellevilleStory and photos by Tory Hoen, Haven in Paris Correspondent

It’s funny to think how my first visit to Paris involved the requisite art stops (the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay), and how I now get my artistic thrills by lurking in the dark doorways of artist ateliers in Paris’ fringy Belleville neighborhood. But as my relationship with the city has evolved, my understanding of the “real” Paris has evolved as well. I’m not knocking the d’Orsay (it’s worth it every time), but today’s contemporary art scene often happens behind closed doors. A few times a year, these doors open up, and I was lucky enough to be in Paris last week for the Portes Ouvertes de Belleville. (more…)

mm-vuedelarcdetriomphe-parisWhat happens when 24 pairs of eyes really see Paris?

Paris Artseen: Fahd El Jaoudi

Paris-artseenStory by Jennifer K. Dick for Eye Prefer Paris

Split between cultures, places. It’s the tale of the modern age. To write here in Paris, in English, of art coming from elsewhere. Intersections. Or, as Fahd El Jaoudi puts it in his new show’s title: “Collision”. One of ten young artists (all between 23 and 34 years old) being represented by the relatively new, dynamic Galerie e.l Bannwarth run by Emilie Bannwarth, El Jaoudi is himself a collision. (more…)


Paris Artseen: Maryanne Pollock at Chez Grace

6a00d83451b0bd69e20115702450c2970c-800wiStory & photos by Jennifer K. Dick for Eye Prefer Paris

A humid Saturday early evening, I climb the turreted staircase in Abbesses metro station to emerge onto a colourful children’s fair with trampolines, cotton candy, a merry-go-round. I wander a short block along the bustling rue des Abesses, once the haunt of Picasso, Picabia, Dali, Van Gogh, Monet, then knock on the door of Grace Teshima’s third floor apartment. The walls are stark white, the lighting over a series of tile-sized paintings by American artist Maryanne Pollock is gallery-professional, and yet there are two fabulously inviting crimson couches by big windows overlooking the bustling shop-filled street below. Teshima offers me a drink. I could be the first one at a party, but the room has been emptied of all other furniture and the walls have been carefully hung with three series of paintings and mixed medium works, another series and further works are displayed in an adjoining space. This is my first time at chez Grace, a monthly art salon curated by Teshima and which began four years ago “almost by accident” as she explains. (more…)

Entering Boris Achour’s show “Conatus: celui dans la grotte” at the gallery Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois (http://www.galerie-vallois.com/fr/artiste.html), one is struck by a series of contrasts—carnivalesque rainbow paper lines the walls, coats a series of spiked stalactites descending from the ceiling.
