Paris is Paris. Is my city. The feeling that Paris gives me is different of any other city. I feel I am home and I am very chic and just luxurious.
I go to Paris to feel this incredible feeling. I go there to eat and drink at the best places. I go there to enjoy.
As I like to dance I had to go to Moulin Rouge of course. I have got tickets online for dinner and the show. We had a driver to take us there and when we arrived at the door they thought it was my birthday ( I did not correct them ) and I had the best sit ever plus got an extra champagne by glass. The dinner was 3 courses and included a half bottle of champagne. It was not my best meal I ever had however was enjoyable and had some live music while we were eating. Starter was soup, main course a steak and for dessert a creme brulee. I don’t waste time to describe as seriously was very average. After dinner the show started. Amazing, extraordinary show with beautiful dancers. You can not take pictures but I am sure everyone who has been there would agree, you don’t have to. It stays with you forever with or without pictures. We had a few additional bottle of champagne so as good spenders and happy guests we could have stayed and watch the show again. What a night! After all we have got opportunity to talk to the dancers, the director, everyone. It was just purely amazing.
Next day I had one of the most luxury day of my life. Started with some drinks at Hotel Le Meurice at the Rue de Rivoli. What a luxury. Mosaic floor, crystal chandeliers, heavy damask curtains, magnificent place. I had few Gin and Tonic with very old fashioned surrounding, luxurious decor and attentive service. At the door before you enter the bar there’s a wall full with sand so you can write anything in it. Apparently they are cleaning it every night so whatever you write into the sand wont show longer than a day but still fun. After that I have had dinner at Restaurant du Palais – Royal. Something extremely romantic to dine here, the restaurant’s terrace is the most magical place in Paris at summer time. Next to the Ministry of Culture at the gardens. It’s been told many years ago this garden was the home of the very high class prostitutes who were walking along the garden and sitting on the bench or enjoying a glass of wine. I do believe. It does look like it. The place feels something unique. The food was brilliant. I had Foi Gras for starter and Sole for main course. Perfectly cooked meal. The perfect companion for my food was a bottle of Crozes Hermitage from 2007. One of the most amazing dinner I have had.
After dinner we had a little walk at Place Vendome, looking around the luxury shops. There’s plenty jewelry shops with beautiful and very shiny diamonds. After a little daydreaming we were heading to the Buddha Bar at Rue Boissy d’Anglas. It has opened 1996 where a 20‑metre‑tall golden Buddha watches over drinkers. Opposite that Huge Buddha there’s a very long staircase that gives you a challenge to make sure you can walk in your high heels!
Few drinks after we were heading to Hotel Costas. My favorite place in Paris. Very chic, very good place with beautiful people and everyone is there who wants to be seen. I had dinner here before. Absolutely outstanding. The service very Parisian and the food very fresh and enjoyable. This time I had Hennessy XO with a chocolate fondant. Perfect marriage.
The best night club in Paris is the VIP Room at Rue De Rivoli with french rococo furniture and baroque style, where was our last stop. Tables are only for reservation. They have mostly Grey Goose and Moet by bottle. Music is amazing with some beautiful dancers. and attentive staff. ( good looking guys in leather kilt….hmmm ) Very, very good night.
Paris is always the most stylist couple of days in my travel diary and the most expensive as well. Any money worth it, always the best experience. Paris is Paris.
