Triplettes, Will, Georges, Jaja, Mme Shawn and PNY. What do they have in common? Well, they are all beautiful restaurants with great reputations for fine food, but they all have a certain delightful something extra. A terrace! So everyone outside, because here are the most beautiful terraces to enjoy during your next stay at the Hotel Fabric. By Julie Rebeyrol.
Hôtel Fabric and the Apérichic
Does Parisian beer and chic snacking appeal to you? Well, here's a new idea from the Hotel Fabric for recharging your batteries and reawakening your senses after the wanderings of the day or before setting out for the night.
Easter will soon be upon us, bringing all its long-awaited opportunities to splurge on chocolate. But delicious as that is, it’s not all that’s on offer in Paris during this special time. Just a short stroll from the Hotel Fabric, or close to Oberkampf, there are some exciting locations offering all the creative taste sensations that are a major Parisian hallmark.
Café Araku, a grain of character
The dream was to create the first fully integrated organic coffee supply, with a smooth and ethical transition from the coffee plantation to the cup.

A.P.C., A PRODUCTION AND CREATION WORKSHOP
A.P.C. could easily be an acronym for Absolutely Perfect Clothes, because that’s the high regard in which this fashion hot spot is held. However, it actually stands for Atelier de Production et de Creation, where cutting edge minimalist chic fashion has been produced since 1987. J.R.
The Broken Arm, the new on-trend address

The 1980s, the Unbearable Lightness at the Centre Pompidou
Flash back! By mixing well known pieces in with works that are little known or waiting to be rediscovered, this exhibition gives us a fresh perspective on the photographic world of the 1980s. Considered as the pinnacle of postmodernism, that elusive and capricious decade was crucial to the development of photography. Often very ‘pictorial’, this new photography was given an added impetus by technical developments such as the accessibility of good quality colour, the possibilities offered by large format prints, and the immediacy of the Polaroid system. JR.
Parisian Nights in the Bains during the 1980s
At the end of the 19th century it was the first and most renowned bathhouse in Paris, but to capture the modern spirit of Les Bains, we must go back to the 1980s, when this legend of the capital become a rock concert hall and super-cool temple of Parisian night-clubbing. At the crossroads of fashion, Les Bains roused Paris to wakefulness and quickly become a cultural institution of the city; a point of reference for the world of media, entertainment and arts, and a gathering place where the celebrity elite mingled in dissolute disarray. JR.
Le Fantôme, the bar for the Pacman generation
Cocktails, street food and video games. At the junction of the Rue d'Hauteville and the Rue de Paradis, behind black lacquered tiling you can find a Pacman table, as well as table football, pinball machines and more retro-gaming delights. JR.

Olympia Le Tan, fabulous bags for carrying fabulous books
The first Parisian boutique of Olympia Le-Tan is already legendary. In a stylishly enthralling boutique consisting of 2 floors at the entrance to the Passage des Deux Pavillons, reaching to the gardens of the Palais Royal, the spirit remains that of an individualistic creator who wanted an all pink boutique that suggests, in the very best way, a doll's House. JR.
The Jardin des Tuileries
Admire sculptures by Rodin, Giacometti and Jean Dubuffet standing proudly alongside aisles of lime and chestnut trees, discover fountains sparkling amidst the lawns and groves and relax on a chair by the great Bassin to watch as children race their model boats as they have done here for generations. History and time seem to hang suspended from the branches of these majestic trees in the Jardin des Tuileries, a beautiful park named after the tile workshops that once stood there. JR.
Creators and trendy boutiques at the Palais Royal
Vintage couture in the legendary Didier Ludot, a luxury showcase for the creations of Stella McCartney, the dream jeans to be found at Acne Studio, the charming and lovely wooden toys from Vilac which hearken back to yesteryear, and the exceptional perfumes of Serge Lutens…all this and much more can be found beneath the arcades of the Palais Royal, one of the trendiest and edgiest shopping places in the city, and a historic promenade, too!
