Paris: Secret places for a great Design Weekend

Paris is great, with all its corners and secrets waiting to be discovered. Each time, when we are in Paris the city surprises us with new points of view, clubs, shops and beautiful neighborhoods.

One weekend, three intensive days in new unexplored areas for us. Focusing on less known locations and perhaps most surprising, where you can find art, design, food and lots of everyday life.


We stayed in the Bastille area, excellent starting point for walking around and provide all the amenities of the city center, but avoid the chaos of the most tourist districts.

Our mini travel guide is divided into three sections: Monuments – Urban places, Food – Bars and Shopping for design lovers. Bienvenue à Paris!
