The Musée des Arts Décoratifs pays tribute to the Belgian designer Dries van Noten. The exhibition is like a journey in the heart of his universe and an immersion in his sources of inspiration, in order for us to enter his creation process. Until November 2nd.
Take advantage of the sunny days and take a walk in the gardens of the Château de Versailles! This summer, the paths are surrounded by the contemporary artpieces of the Korean artist Lee Ufan. While there, do not miss the magnificient show Les Grandes Eaux Musicales and explore the fountains and groves with their water features on the rhythm of music. Lee Ufan until November 2nd, Grandes Eaux Musicales until October 26th.
As each year, the Paris Jazz Festival will take place at the Parc Floral. A very rich program has been put together to celebrate its 20th edition: famous artists, week-ends on the themes of French Touch, Explorations, Jazz Afrique or Classicism… All the jazz-addicts will be contented! Until July 27th.
This summer, “guinguettes” are back in vogue! Immortalized by the Impressionnists, here is our selection (more for the ambiance than the gastronomy)! The most authentic one is Chez Gégène in Joinville-le-Pont, a real institution with its “bal-musette” and its mussels with French fries. For a more bucolic ambiance, the best choice is the Guinguette de Neuilly on the Ile de la Jatte with a bistro cuisine.
Start your terrace exploration by visiting ours, with its hot-air-balloon-like arbors! Experience our ephemeral Rosé Wine Bar. See life in pink this summer! Until September 30th.
We also recommend the Petit Palais at the Grand Palais, Monsieur Bleu at the Palais de Tokyo, Wanderlust at the Cité du Design (loud but with a nice atmosphere), the Closerie des Lilas (an institution and the favorite address of the intellectuals).
Enjoy summer at the Saint James Paris!
