24 HOURS IN PARISDecember 24, 2013
Eiffel Tower – yawn. Champs-Élysées – whatever. From David Lynch’s nightclub to the best burgers in town, take a hedonistic 24-hour trip tour off the beaten path with Grazia France Fashion Editor Emilie Turck.
11am: Arrive at the Hotel Amour. It’s central, serves good food and there are always a couple of pretty boys hanging around too. Why stay anywhere else?
11.30am: Brunch at Claus where we opt for the ‘Hugo’, a mix of English breakfast (delicious scrambled eggs) and French (bread and jam to die for). I’d also suggest La Buvette.
2pm: Shopping starts at The Superette, a place run by girls that sells great clothes for tomboys.
4pm: We make a pitstop at Broken Arm for the sacred “goûter” (French version of afternoon tea). Both the blueberry cheesecake and heart-shaped cappuccino cheesecake are to die for.
5.30pm: We take a break from all that hard work at Tigersushi – an indie record and clothes label, with androgynous pieces that’ll make you roar with pleasure.
6pm: We stand out on the street at Mauri, it’s a hotspot for graphic designers, filmmakers and the city’s fashion elite.
8pm: Time to fill up at PNY (Paris New York) for the best burgers in town with their famous cheesy french fries.
10pm: We immerse ourselves into the authentic ‘80s video arcade environment at Le Fantôme, slamming on the pinball machine with a cucumber cocktail in hand.
2am: Once we pass the gatekeeper at the entrance at Silencio, we will get lost in the golden labyrinth of the David Lynch’s club and drink the best cocktails in Paris…
4am:We’ve hit the bars, time to hit the sack back at the hotel.
10am: La Buvette serves up THE Sunday brunch so we couldn’t leave without trying out this new address.
11am: Time to hotfoot it to the train station, Gare du Nord and head home. Au revoir!
