In the center of So-Pi (South Pigalle), not so far away from metro Pigalle, you’ll find LULU White, a bar that opened up its doors in November 2014. Back in the days when I was new in Paris I remember I often went to bars in Montmartre which I enjoyed very much..but with time I’ve been quite lazy and stayed in la 6ème, St Germain or in the center of Paris.
Its never too late to discover new bars and a few weekends ago me and some friends went to LULU White. Almost passed it by at first, NO sign outside, only the house nr indicated we were on the correct spot..and the bouncer..who told us it was quite crowded but still let us in :-)
When you enter you travel back in time, to the belle époque in the early 1900’s! Elegant decoration in New Orleans style, a bar in mahogany designed by Hector Guimard, great music..everything from jazz to music fr the 60-80’s and very friendly and service-minded bartenders.
Their speciality is absinthe based cocktails, so for you absinthe minded..this is the bar you’ve been looking for ;-) Just keep in mind, its very small so it gets crowded very fast…go there early!

High heels all over my floor at home. A pretty much of a normal sight every Sunday morning. Will keep this one short, lately me and one of my best friend in Paris have spent the weekends on dancing the nights away on the dancefloors of Montana and Baron, just like in the good old times ;-) So it’s totally worth the mess I’m waking up among the morning after….
…and I wonder if Prada would replace this broken golden hardware under one of my Prada stilettos??
Fashion Week without partying at Baron is a big no, no. Baron is definately a part of the Fashion Week and on Sunday evening I had been invited for the NYNY party that friends from NY organized there with awesome DJ’s. Danced all night long, at least I tried to on the very packed dancefloor ;-) The Men’s Fashion Week here in Paris couldn’t have had a better ending…

These heels were killing me
This weekend was my very first weekend without work so I needed to celebrate that + the fact that I’ve moved back to Paris :-) Intensive weekend, spent with friends, Saturday dinner at Restaurant Bon (designed by Philippe Starck) and Sunday dinner at Monsieur Bleu (designed by Joseph Durand)…did some club-jumping too, started at Raspoutine but when we saw the clientele (yes, lots of things has changed in Paris….to the worse) we took a taxi and headed to the cool Nüba located on a rooftop (perfect since it had been over 24 degrees the same day in Paris and the air was still warm on the evening and we danced under the full-moon)….around 03:30 we took a taxi and did a classic tour to Montana and ended our evening at Baron like in the good old days. And yes, I did manage to wake up early on Sunday morning to go to the Marché Bio at Blvd Raspail and do my regular self-practise pilates on the reformer machine at Rituel Studio. On Sunday the clubs we wanted to go to were closed…strange, when I was living in Paris two years ago I used to go partying at Montana on Sunday evenings too but that’s not the case anymore. Instead we went to Café de Flore after our dinner at Monsieur Bleu. Since my heels were killing me taxi was the only alternative and this weekend and I experienced one great taxi-driver (as sent from heaven) he was driving superfast (loved it!!!) and unfortunately also a really creepy taxi-driver. More details and photos from my weekend will follow very soon ;-)
Spellbinding cocktails at Miss Kō in Paris in a very creative and madness inspired atmosphere. During my last trip to Paris I visited the restaurant Miss Kō in Paris with my friends for a dinner. We had a great time, the food was good and so were the cocktails we had ordered. Miss Kō is not just great for having dinners at, its the prefect place going to for grabbing a drink or two before hitting of for the nightlife in Paris. The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxed and I wasn’t surprised when I heard that Philippe Starck is the interior designer behind this restaurant concept just like Mama Shelter that you by now know that I love :-)
