Restauranteur Sébastien Foulard shows us his favorite parts of Paris

Where to go in the French capital when you've already hit up all of the tourist hotspots (twice).

The one thing you’ll nev­er have to worry about when vis­it­ing the City of Lights? Not hav­ing more than enough cool places to go/​see/​do. But when you’re spoiled for choice, there’s some­thing to be said about cull­ing recom­mend­a­tions from an in-the-know insider. As such, we got res­taur­ant own­er Sébas­tien Foul­ard to divulge his favor­ite quart­i­er, his go-to cafe, and the per­fect park in Paris.

My favor­ite dis­trict is…

Mon­torgueil in the 2nd arron­disse­ment — a large part of the cos­mo­pol­it­an com­plex­ity of Par­is is con­cen­trated here. The heart of the dis­trict looks like a vil­lage, the people are nice, there are many res­taur­ants and bars, the night­life is intense, and there are new open­ings every month.

It’s also the neigh­bor­hood where I work, being the happy co-own­er of Jefrey’s Cock­tail Bar, where we ima­gine tech­nic­al craft cock­tails coupled with cre­at­ive experiences. 

I find inspiration…

On the streets at the mer­chants who open early (before the rest of the neigh­bor­hood rises), and in many of the stun­ning street art works. 

My urb­an oas­is is…

Le Parc des Buttes-Chaumont in the 19th dis­trict. Just me + a good book + a bottle of wine = a per­fectly lazy after­noon spent lounging.

1 Rue Botzar­is, 75019 Paris

The best place to watch people is…

Café La Perle in Le Marais. Grab a seat on the ter­race and order a drink; pre­pare to watch a parade of styl­ish fash­ionis­tas and bearded hip­sters stroll by.

78 Rue Vie­ille du Temple, 75003 Par­is, @cafelaperle

— Le Jardin du Pal­ais Roy­al and Les Jardins du Louvre are the most pho­to­gen­ic places in Paris.

When you want to work remotely…

Grab your laptop and head over to Wild & The Moon, where they have everything you need to get you through the day — a per­fect cof­fee range, veget­able-based drinks, fresh juices, and glu­ten-free dishes.

55 Rue Char­lot, 75003 Par­is, @wildandthemoon

When you want to relax…

Unwind after a hard day of work at the bar of the Exper­i­ment­al Cock­tail Club. I recom­mend order­ing a loc­al beer and a mezc­al Neg­roni cocktail.

37 Rue Saint-Sauveur, 75002 Par­is, @experimentalcocktailclubparis

When you want to hear live music…

Res­taur­ant slash nightclub Le Duc des Lom­bards is the best place to hear live jazz tunes.

42 Rue des Lom­bards, 75001 Par­is, @ducdeslombards

When you want to hang out with locals…

Long-estab­lished loc­als hang out at La Tour Montl­héry — Chez Den­ise, one of the old­est res­taur­ants in Par­is. They serve large por­tions of authen­t­ic French cuisine, they haven’t changed the decor in dec­ades, and they’re open until late — 5 a.m.

5 Rue des Prouv­aires, 75001 Paris

When you want to watch the most beau­ti­ful sunset…

The best spot is along the banks of the Seine River, between Le Pont Neuf and Le Pont des Arts ped­es­tri­an bridges. Grab some friends and have a picnic!
