Enjoy the Most Beautiful Dinner of Your Summer

You must experience, at least once in your life, the La Bauhinia table at Shangri-La Paris—an exquisite journey where the newly appointed chef, Quentin Testard, excels at enhancing the flavors of fish with a menu of great lightness. Summer by La Bauhinia is the perfect time to book a table, whether in the open-air dining room adorned with an incredible floral green wall or in the extraordinary garden—one of the most beautiful and hidden gems in Paris, offering a view of the Eiffel Tower. It can't get more romantic than this...

Our advice to fully savor this suspended moment? Book an early dinner around 7:30 PM and relish the sun's warmth for a long time with this palace menu focused on the sea: citrus-marinated amberjack sashimi (€28), crispy rice and prawns (€32), delectable lobster ravioli (€48), lobster roll served with homemade fries (€62), or langoustine linguine (€48). And, of course, don't miss the divine desserts by pastry chef Maxence Barbot, including the irresistible La Fraise, which takes you back to childhood in one bite.

Another option is the all-fish lunch menu, consisting of two starters and the catch of the day, available Monday to Friday at noon (€68). Don your sunglasses and a pretty dress to welcome the arrival of summer...

Discover Nightfall, the artistic and foodie event of the moment

Launched by the chic Art Genève gallery, the Nightfall festival is back for its second edition and promises to be sensational. The concept? Combining culinary and visual arts by having a chef draw inspiration from an artwork to create an ephemeral dish, which will be served in partner restaurants throughout the festival. This year, the focus is on "urban gardens," and the festival expands with artistic and gastronomic walks in the cities of Paris, Nice, Monaco, Menton, and Turin.

To taste these ephemeral creations in the capital, visit participating restaurants such as La Dame de Pic by Anne Sophie Pic, Habile by Eric Fontanini, or the restaurant Derrière orchestrated by Lionel Delage. On the fine arts side, you can explore Bruno Serralongue's work at the Air de Paris gallery, an installation by Loris Cecchini at Galleria Continua, and a painting by Man Ray at the Eva Meyer gallery. Free talks are also scheduled, including a philosophical and artistic roundtable discussion on "urban nature, its colors, and its forms." Quite a program!

Nightfall, from June 24th to July 9th. Free entry to exhibition venues.

Playing coffee artists in a feel-good workshop

Alert for a super cute and easy
workshop in the heart of the capital. After seeing her daughter drawing with coffee, Parisian photographer and watercolor fan Anna Gorvits launched her painting workshops using our favorite drink instead of classic paint. Not great at drawing? Even better! Anna teaches you to reproduce simple motifs (croissant, bistro tables...) so you can leave with your own pieces ready to be framed.

We love these spontaneous workshops to learn how to draw with a BFF over a delicious coffee (to drink, this time!) while chatting with other students. The drawing tips are very easy to reproduce at home, for the price of one or two espresso capsules!

Coffee drawing workshop, reservation at coffeeillustrator@gmail.com for €35 per person, including a hot drink and painting material. 2-hour workshop.

In the heart of the historic
Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, the very chic Madison Hotel hosts a jazz program with a clandestine club atmosphere: the perfect opportunity to enjoy their Art Deco bar for a wild night a la Gatsby.

If you've always loved the world of gangster films, this is the ideal place! Come for one of the house's sublime cocktails, such as the Saint-Germain Martini or Dry Marguerita (€14), and listen to the super live program concocted by the hotel in an intimate setting. At the center of intellectuals, the place knows perfectly how to combine culture and nightlife, in an atmosphere as glamorous as it is festive. Let's groove tonight!
