Les meilleurs adresses à Paris by Jeanne Damas & Lauren Bastide

November 19, 2018

 Jeanne Damas and Lauren Bastide's favourite haunts

Cafes 

Damas says her very favourite cafés are the down-to-earth bar-tabacs “du quartier”. She recommends Le Saint-Gervais (96 Rue Vieille du Temple; 0033 1 42 77 85 65) in the Marais, and Le Relais de Belleville (34 Rue de Belleville, 75020; 0033 1 46 36 31 73) in the artistic 20th arrondissement. For something “un peu touristique” (“I like to go there to dream of Paris a bit”), she recommends Le Nemours (Galerie de Nemours, 2 Place Colette, 75001; 0033 1 42 61 3414), opposite the Comédie Francaise, by the Jardin du Palais Royal.

Bars

Damas and Bastide recommend Aux Deux Amis (45 Rue Oberkampf, 75011; 0033 1 58 30 38 13). The traditional-style bar in the ultra-lively Oberkampf district was an HQ for them as they produced their book and is often referred to in its pages. Damas also recommends The Bottle Shop (5 Rue Trousseau, 75011; 0033 1 43 14 28 04), a British-run beer bar in the popular strip east of Bastille.

Restaurants

Damas cites Chez Casimir (6 Rue de Belzunce, 75010; 0033 1 48 78 28 80), a hip bistro just south of Gare du Nord known for its weekend buffet brunches. Bastide is a fan of her local Hôtel Amour (8 Rue de Navarin, 75009; 0033 1 48 78 31 80), in trendy “SoPi” (South Pigalle). It’s popular for its elegant courtyard. She advises sampling the weekend atmosphere – and the gratin.

Best “quartiers”

Bastide recommends a stroll up Rue des Martyrs from the smart 9th arrondissement to the bottom of Montmartre. The street is dotted with charming boulangeries and florists, with antique and vintage shops and cute cafés further up. Try Marlette, left, (51 Rue des Martyrs, 75009; 0033 1 48 74 89 73) or KB Café (53 Avenue Trudaine, 75009; 0033 1 56 92 12 41). 

Damas likes the going-out-friendly parts of the 10th arrondissement (between Gare du Nord and the Louvre, near Canal Saint-Martin) and suggests exploring around Rue de Paradis and Gare de l’Est; try Café A, below, (Maison de l’Architecture, 148 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin, 75010; 0033 9 81 29 83 38), or hipster hangout Chez Jeannette (47 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, 75010; 0033 1 47 70 30 89). 

Hairdressers 

For a shortcut to Parisian insouciant chic, try the authors’ preferred salons (if your budget allows). Damas picks Studio 34, above, by Delphine Courteille (28 Rue du Mont Thabor, 75001; 0033 1 47 03 35 35), and Bastide favours Blonde By Franck Vidoff (12 Rue du Pré aux Clercs, 75007; 0033 1 42 22 66 33) for subtle Parisian colour. Voilà!
