The Weekend Guide I

Here are my top picks for weekend happenings in Paris not to miss.


Paris Pop Up #4 is coming our way with a special BRUNCH edition hosted at Bones in the 11th arr. Who doesn’t love brunch? Juices by T & J of The Sporting Project/Bob’s Cold Press, plus bar food for those who didn’t have a chance to reserve.

Just discovered this incredible thing called Restaurant Day- The day when anywhere can become a restaurant and anyone a chef.

Started in Finland and has now made its way around the world, Restaurant Day is stopping in Paris this Saturday, May 18th. Learn more about it by watching their video below, by downloading the iPhone application, and find the nearest restaurant to you via their interactive foodie map. Like Restaurant Day on Facebook to keep up with their dates & news.

The summertime festivities are back in action at Wanderlust, where this weekend they’re hosting the release of party music compilation, Kitsuné America 2. Entry is free starting at 18h.


Some tunes to get you in the mood:

Also happening at Wanderlust is this exhibition, plus a screening of “Portrait d’une Enfant Eéchue” by Jerry Schatzberg, followed by a DJ set into the wee hours.




This saturday is also La Nuit Européene des Musées where museums around the continent will be staying open late and offering special concerts, expos, and soirées. Head to the event at the Palais de Tokyo. Starting at 20h, see inside hidden side of Paris’ modern art mecca. Throughout the night, regular expos will also be open, including Soleil Froid and N˚5 Culture Chanel.



While you’re at the Palais de Tokyo, check out their newest restaurant, Monsieur Bleu. Super hyped, this restaurant easily wins for having the best terrace view.
