Paris is hiding
Les Ecuries Pub
Les Ecuries is the place to be to find out all about the current trends in the Parisian art and music scene. It is a wonderful and quirky little underground bar with a lot of history.
Les Ecuries was once an old post office which turned into a secret social location in the 70’s, turned medieval restaurant in the 90’s, and then opened as Les Ecuries in 2014. They now offer a unique venue space, exhibition hall and a creative forum for new talents.

Drive Around Montmartre in a 2CV
A visit up to Montmartre will certainly give you that lovely Parisian feel you’ve been yearning for, especially if you’re exploring the streets in a little historical French car like the 2CV.
Montmartre is a romantic and quaint neighbourhood which sits high above the streets of Paris.
It has been called home by many world renowned artists like Picasso, Van Gogh and Matisse.
While romantic and dreamy are both accurate terms to describe the beautiful neighbourhood of Montmartre, be prepared for some uphill climbs! You will likely make your way all the way up to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica which stands at the highest point in the city. The views will amaze you!
