Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Paris

Aquaboulevard
Bored at the idea of a normal pool? Those in the know head to Aquaboulevard for the wave machines and waterslides, not to mention the saunas.
Aquamoon
Serene, spacey surrounds for a facial or hammam treatment next door to the Ritz.
Canauxrama
See Paris from the water on one of these canal and river cruises.
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.
Fat Tire Bike Tours
Tour Paris and all of its surroundings by day and night with Fat Tire Bike Tours.
Gepetto et Velos
The place to pick up a bicycle or BMX for the weekend.
L’Appartement 217
In an area more commonly associated with high octane shopping, L'Appartement 217 (located dangerously nearby uber-concept store Colette) is a welcome retreat from the Manolo-clad crowds.
L’Atelier des Chefs
Learn to cook with the Parisians.
Nickel: Male salon
From massage to full-body waxing (more or less) every (beauty) need is catered for at this men-only beauty salon.
Paris a Velo C’est Sympa
All things bicycle, from tours to rental.
Paris Plages
Over the Summer months the Paris Plages come to life where lithe locals swim and sunbathe along the sandified stretches of the Seine.
Paris Walking Tours
If you experience a city better on foot why not try a walking tour?
Parks
Craving some greenery and a little serenity? Head to one of Paris's parks.
Piscine George Vallerey
Built in 1924 for Olympics, this big pool has a retractable roof, sunbeds, a bar area and children's pool.
Piscine Josephine Baker
If you don't fancy swimming in the Seine why not swim in a pool suspended in the water of the Seine instead?
Piscine Pontoise Quartier Latin
A gem of Art Deco design neat the Sorbonne, with mosaics, columns and original brass fittings.
Roller Location Nomade
Paris loves to rollerblade, who knew!
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.
UMA: Massage and Yoga
UMA: Massage and Yoga does exactly what it says on the tin, albeit in a chic, modern environment.
