A few spots to explore in Paris (from a local's perspective)


Paris is one of the most dreamy destinations for a lot of tourists. If you're in Paris for a few weeks - and if you have already checked the must-visit places - you probably wonder where the locals go... (as you can imagine, Parisians don't get dinner at the 3rd floor of the Eiffel Tower or walk in the Champs-Elysées on a Sunday afternoon).

I've shared a list on my microblog, but I've expanded it with a few spots I've just discovered:

- the Ground Control: If you wanna have a few beers in a old-fashioned bathtub, a portion of fries in an aircraft wreckage or simply play ping pong (or just wandering around - we are talking about 6,000 m2 of free space). Great in summer to sip fancy cocktails and meet people.


- The Lavomatic: it's a speakeasy bar hidden behind the door of a laundromat.


- Gallivant in rue Mouffetard on a weekday around 6-7pm. Perfect place to drink and start endless philosophical conversations.

- Go get a few crepes at Josselin (best crepes in Paris imo)

- Treat yourself with a nice pizza from East Mamma.
