The City of Light has plenty of electrifying nightspots and restaurants.
One of the many popular hangouts in Paris that seems to get even better with age, L'Hôtel was once Oscar Wilde's favorite Left Bank haunt. Tucked away on a discreet street in Saint Germain and conveniently close to shopping and trendy cafes, its restaurant also recently picked up a Michelin star for its contemporary take on French fare. After dinner, catch the action in the lavishly decorated purple and gold cocktail bar. Guests can also unwind in a private underground pool and steam room.
Three-star Michelin chef Guy Savoy opened this relaxed brasserie several years ago, offering a simple approach to good food. The rotisserie is the main draw and attracts a well-dressed crowd enjoying roast chicken, veal and steak by the large stone fireplace.
Le Petit Marche
The young and chic gather at this tiny, untraditional bistro behind Place des Vosges. The subtly elegant menu is French with an Asian twist, boasting delights like steak bathed in Szechwan spices, pan-fried scallops and vegetarian pastas.
Conveniently located off the stylish Rue Saint-Honoré, Ferdi is a fashion favorite, drawing regulars like Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquière and Pierre Hardy. The eclectic menu offers Spanish tapas, truffle risotto and what Penélope Cruz calls the best cheeseburger in the city. The popular eatery also makes one of Paris' strongest mojitos.
This restaurant is a bit of Italy in Paris, featuring San Daniele ham, fresh ravioli stuffed with mascarpone and an impressive wine list. The clientele and cuisine match the elegance of the decor, which features red and black leather furniture with Murano chandeliers.
Cambon on Tap
Once home to Chanel, the Rue Cambon is becoming one of the city's hottest shopping districts: Yohji Yamamoto will soon open a flagship there, Japan's Zucca brand is taking over the former Maria Luisa spot, Roberto Cavalli will open his Paris flagship this fall on the corner of Cambon and Rue Saint-Honoré and Louis Vuitton is said to be eying a space higher on the street, right off the Boulevard de la Madeleine.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
