Any time of year there’s few things as lovely as a stroll along the Canal Saint Martin. We all know that scene in Amélie where she skips the stones, and we all know how fabulous it is to sit outside on a Saturday night in the summertime with a bottle of wine (if you don’t, you should go and discover the magic!). The hustle bustle of this area will have you trying to decide where to get a little coffee, and new places are opening up left and right and making it harder and harder to pick which spots you fancy most. The list below are a few of my favorite spots in this area, and worth a pick me up if you’ve got the chance.

Sometimes a little cocktail on a week night does the soul good. If you’re looking for a place to get a delicious cocktail in a sublime atmosphere, I’ve got the place for you: The Club.

I discovered The Club a little over a year ago (shown previously here), and I must say, it is one of my favorite spots in Paris. The atmosphere is uncomparable – so tasteful – and boy are the guys that run it kind! They’ve even got some delicious bottled beers hidden in their black Smeg, including a personal Colorado favorite, Blue Moon!

I usually go for the Old Fashioned.

Parisian summers are hot. Quite hot. Everywhere is hot. So hot. Having a cocktail when the sun goes down often makes you feel perfectly refreshed.

The Club is one of my favorite spots in Paris for drinks. Their cocktails are so unique, but with the classics of course on the menu, and in such a wonderfully decorated space. Not to mention how kind their staff is, holy moly.

This particular night a specific group of girls got together. Contrary to what you may think, the American expat community is pretty tight here in Paris. I feel like we all know each other somehow, or know of each other at least, or maybe even we know someone who knows someone who knows the other person…. and the only thing that was missing was being all together in the same place at the same time. After Lauren’s summertime picnic at Parc Monceau, a new sporadic tradition was born…. spontaneous get togethers. The more the merrier. Ta da!

This hot summer evening, we gathered to enjoy a cocktail or five together. Amongst the crowd were the creative ladies behind Oh la la liviaPrêt à VoyagerThe FrancoflyLove in the City of LightsDiane A BroadSavoir Faire ParisPrête-Moi ParisFolies du BonheurElla CoquineFox in ParisAmbitieuse + a few other fabulous gals that I had the chance to meet. There was some mad mixology going on that night.

My favorite cocktail by the guys at The Club is their classic old fashioned, which is usually my favorite in most bars, but hey, theirs is darn good and the perfect mix of tangy sweet and bitter. It always is so refreshing, and the perfect way to kick off an evening. Cheers to that. Give their snacks a whirl, little club sandwiches or grilled cheese.

Thanks ladies for such a wonderful evening filled with deliciously crafted cocktails.

And if you haven’t stopped by The Club yet, you probably should.

I heard about this place through Lindsey, and boy am I glad I finally stopped by. It’s fantastic.

At Al Taglio, you order your pizza by the piece and pay by the weight. You can get a super small piece of every type of pizza or one big piece of one particular pizza, or try one thing after another until you’re full. It’s just the best concept. And their pizzas are unique and delicious.

One that I absolutely adore is Patate e tartufo, which has potatoes and truffle cream. Yummy. But they are all delicious. And luckily you can try a little piece of each!

They’ve got two shops in Paris, one in the 11th and one in the 3rd.

Address: 27, rue de Saintonge, 75003
Métro: Fille du Calvaire (Line 8)


is one of my favorite places in Paris.

I just love the way it’s decorated, the variety on their menu and the different ways you can experience the place: breakfast, brunch, lunch, to-go, high tea… it’s just fantastic.

One of the things that sets apart from most places is the burst of color and its unique personality. I just love the colorful chairs, contrasting patterns, ethnic spunk and modern wall art.

It’s a breath of fresh air when you walk in. It feels so wholesome, cozy and interestingly natural.
