Everyone is talking about it! Normal, the new hotel designed by Tristan Auer at the heart of the Marais flirts with the nostalgia of the Palace days. Recently opened by the Hôtel Brach gang, Sinner has imposed itself as the new headquarters of n cool, attracting all the top fashion influencers— starting with the clique of Géraldine Nakache as well s Leïla Bekhti, Joey Starr and Co.

Two options: show up unexpectedly on the large super comfy sofas of the bar to sip a fresh juice, a latte or then in the evening, one of their terrific cocktails—it’s a great place to chat, work or set up an interview. For a more socialite evening, go for the real ultra-glam’ restaurant, headed by Adam Bentalha who takes on tribal and Peruvian references: braised kefta (€16), tajine (€31), mechoui (€14 ), ceviche (€38) without forgetting the desserts of MOF Yann Bris.

If there were only one rooftop to mention, this would be the one. And with reason. This new highly socialite and arty rooftop has just been opened by Jean Phi, the legendary owner of La Perle, at the heart of the Marais and already the hot spot of Paris fashion-week. Imagine a giant BBQ placed on top of the 98 Rue Vieille-du-Temple with a 360° view and a very cosy open roof that enables chilly-willy Parisiennes to stay warm.

The VIP potential of this unique terrace? Here, seats are rare and well deserved. An official reservation on the site is a must. After passing by the private elevator, the staircase, an XXL print by artist Philippe Ramette, you have reached the summit. Champagne, good sounds and grilled delights: you can start enjoying!
