Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Paris

Mathis Bar
Fifteen years old and going strong, Paris' most sought-after and secret location...
Studio 28
Upholding the Parisian reputation of a fierce dedication to independant film and alternative art, this retro cinema shows classic movies and is frequented by film-makers.
Kong
A large silver tree marks the entrance to Kong, whose interior wavers between a club and a highly surreal restaurant.
Pavillon de la Reine
You couldn't get more of a scenic setting in a perfect location.
L’Homme Bleu
Unbeatable Moroccan cuisine is served till late at this no-frills restaurant.
Kabuki Femme
All the labels you love under one roof.
Mina Poe
Minapoe's fans have seen it grow from accessories to eveningwear.
L’Ecailler du Bistrot
Fantastic choice for fresh seafood and delicious desserts.
Pop In
As Hoxton as you can get in Paris.
La Fontaine
An atmospheric jazz bar that does it for the music and not for the money.
Crazy Horse
World famous cabaret with an emphasis on the elegance of the female form...
Calvin Klein
La Nuit Elastique
Rubber, latex, leather dress code. Enough said.
Yukiko
Vintage delights and original finds.

A small but trendy bar with great drinks and food.
Maison de la Photographie
Running
Opéra Bastille
This innovative design has mixed receptions but the performances are world-class.
Opéra Garnier
From the underground lake to the ceiling painted by Chagall, the Opéra Garnier is a sight to behold. And that's before the performance even begins.
Musée Rodin
This 18th century mansion presents Rodin's major works while also playing host to temporary exhibitions throughout the year.
Museé d’Orsay
Beautiful location, fantastic art, and the in-house eateries are good, too. What more could you ask for?
Musée National Gustave-Moreau
Eccentric for all eternity, you really should pay a visit to the house-turned-museum of Gustave Moreau.
Musée National Picasso
This magnificant museum houses the world's most complete Picasso collection and thus attracts a huge tourist crowd for both the extraordinary collection and (in summer months) the charming garden attached.
Mémorial des Martyrs
Beautiful and bleak is this morgue turned memorial.
Cimetière du Montparnasse
This is an ideal place for a whistle stop tour of Parisian cultural heritage where so many cultural icons continue to draw crowds. Stroll around St Germain and enjoy the chic cafe scene to refuel before a spot of sightseeing.
Cimetière du Père-Lachaise
This is an ideal spot to catch up on Parisian history.
Zadig & Voltaire
Violette & Léonie
A fashion emporium for your delectation.
Stella McCartney
Shine
All the brands you could ask for in this boutique.

Marie-Hélène de Taillac
Jewellery beautiful enough to inspire you to buy some...
Marni

What a way to spend the weekend - a tree lined street, a market, maybe even a bargain or two. Perfection.
Marché aux Puces Saint-Ouen
From 'junk' to 'merchandise', this market will provide.
Marché Bastille
A wonderful farmers market in the 11eme arrondissement.
Marché des Enfants Rouges
A food market to satisfy even the most organic foodie.
Marché Raspail
Whether you want to nibble and walk, or you're happy to browse aimlessly, spending some time at this market is a lovely way to enjoy a Sunday.
