New beer bar in Paris 11e

We discovered Les Caves de Fauve yesterday for a team drink and loved the combination of great local beers, hype decor (and good music), friendly atmosphere and even refined food ! A combination quite rare to get that ensures we will be back very soon, with the team or friends.

5 spots where Parisians love to go to

You're gonna have a blast my dear! I suggest you to check out the following spots: - the Ground Control: If you wanna have a few beers in a old-fashioned bathtub, a portion of fries in an aircraft wreckage or playing ping pong (or just wandering around - we are talking about 6,000 m2 of free space - then, you've found your place). Great in summer to sip and meet people. - the lavomatic: it's a speakeasy bar hidden behind... a laundromat (!) - you should gallivant in rue Mouffetard on a weekday around 6-7pm. Perfect place to drink and start endless philosophical conversations - Go get a few crepes at Josselin (it's in Montparnasse) - Best pizza in Paris in East Mamma

3-day itinerary in France

Day 1 - Go to the Louvre Museum. It opens at 9am so you should try to get up early and get there at the opening to avoid the crowd. Spend the time you need there, then go to the nearby Sainte Chapelle. Then pay a visit to the Arc de Triomphe. On the way to get there, grab a late lunch or eat a sandwich (there are fine restaurants but they can be expensive). Visiting the Eiffel Tower before sunset would be perfect. Wander the Avenue des Champs-Élysées before heading back to your hotel/Airbnb. Day 2 - Head to Notre-Dame de Paris in early morning. After this, get to Musée d'Orsay. You can spend an afternoon at Luxembourg Gardens (you should get lunch there, there is a lot of cheap options there as it's crowded by students). After that, head off to one of the riverwalks to enjoy some leisure time along the Seine River. Hit the Marais District to experience Paris nightlife. Day 3 - You can reserve half a day for visiting the Palace of Versailles (45 minutes form Paris). You can spend some time there. After coming back to the city, consider going to a flea market (Vanves or Montreuil) and get some souvenirs. Day 4 - On the 4th day, I'd suggest you to go to Giverny. It's a bit far but totally worth it.

Don't do these things when you're in Paris

Eating at any restaurant near the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées or Notre-Dame. Scams that target tourists - don't buy tickets from strangers, don't hold anything that someone tries to give you. Say 'no merci' each time you're being sollicited and leave with a smile :) At airports, get the official taxis. They are usually located outside the aiport, make sure to follow the signs. Don't get on these dinner cruises on the Seine. The food sucks. Just take a boat tour eat at a great restaurant instead. Never tip - gratuity is included everywhere. Don't spend too much time finding the perfect croissant. They are all good as long as you pick them at a bakery.

Is Paris safe for tourists?

Paris is safe. There is no risk wandering around in daytime. But, like in any other big cities, you should be caution of a few things: 1/ Keep your phone, wallet, ID close to you at all time. You don't want to lose your wallet with your ID in it at a restaurant. 2/ If you don't have (want to use) Uber, take cabs with a visible 'taxi' sign on them. Cars without these signs are driven by scammers. 3/ If you go out at night, try to stay in crowded places with big groups of people. French people are friendly, so you shouldn't have any trouble mingling. 4/ In subways, pay close attention to your belongings. 5/ Running in parks in Paris is no trouble.

My favorite bar in Paris

There is a lot of hidden bars in Paris. Here's one I'd recommend you to check: the Ground Control. If you wanna have a few beers in a old-fashioned bathtub, a portion of fries in an aircraft wreckage or playing ping pong (or just wandering around - we are talking about 6,000 m2 of free space - then, you've found your place). Great in summer to sip and meet people.
