Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Paris

Artazart
A place for the art books and the fashion magazines to rub shoulders.
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.
Le Jeu de Paume
Fantastic photographs are housed in Le Jeu de Paume, with some exhibitions travelling the world to get here.
Loulou Les Ames Arts
Revel in the postcards and pictures and photographs.
Louvre
The Louvre needs no introduction but a trip could benefit from a few helpful tips.
Maison de la Photographie
Mémorial des Martyrs
Beautiful and bleak is this morgue turned memorial.
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.
Musée Rodin
This 18th century mansion presents Rodin's major works while also playing host to temporary exhibitions throughout the year.
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.
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.
Parks
Craving some greenery and a little serenity? Head to one of Paris's parks.
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.
