Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Paris

Louvre
The Louvre needs no introduction but a trip could benefit from a few helpful tips.
Le Jeu de Paume
Fantastic photographs are housed in Le Jeu de Paume, with some exhibitions travelling the world to get here.
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.
Maison de la Photographie
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.
Opéra Bastille
This innovative design has mixed receptions but the performances are world-class.
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.
Cinéma du Panthéon | Salon du thé
Aside from the film programming, the venue's other highlight is the salon du thé above the theatre. One of us actually lived next door before discovering this spot—a genuine hidden hideout.
Loulou Les Ames Arts
Revel in the postcards and pictures and photographs.
Parks
Craving some greenery and a little serenity? Head to one of Paris's parks.
Music at Chatelet
This bustling area of the Marais is a constant buzz of conversation and music. While on your shopping spree stop at this busy metro station and enjoy some truly excellent musicians.
Le Grand Rex
60 years on and Paris's biggest picture house is still as grand as the name implies.
La Maison Rouge
La Maison Rouge joins other Parisian landmarks in celebrating the contemporary art scene.
La Comedie Francaise
With a repertoire of around 3000 plays from the classical to the brand new it's well worth checking out La Comedie Francaise.
Jardin du Luxembourg
Located in bustling St. Germain, Le Jardin de Luxembourg will certainly entertain for the day.
Institut du Monde Arabe
Craving some geometrical historical archeological and intellectual illumination? Fear not. The Institut de Monde Arabe will provide.
Cirque d’Hiver Bouglione
Traditional circus performances provide timeless entertainment for all ages.
Centre Georges Pompidou
Colour variety and ingenuity meet in this cross-cultural venue in the Marais.
104
An innovative and internationally inclusive venture aiming to bridge the gap between art producers and the public.
Artazart
A place for the art books and the fashion magazines to rub shoulders.
Palais de Tokyo
This museum is unlike any other in Paris providing contemporary art in all forms; cinema screens show experimental film which can be enjoyed after dinner at the trendy restaurant attached. Very cool.
