  • Jardins du Trocadéro

    Paris
    Park / Landmark
    Jardins du Trocadéro - Park | Landmark in Paris.
    Jul 12, 2013 Picture perfect! "My Take: Currently under construction, Jardins du Trocadéro was opened in 1937 as a place of leisure and relaxation, and offers a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower. The center piece of the garden is a fountain called the Fountains of Warsaw. The fountain has 10 arches of water and 36 smaller fountains that shoot into the air to create beautiful water displays and memorable Kodak moments. There are lots of trees to sit under during summer, benches and grass to lay a blanket on and enjoy a picnic with friends. The Scene: Because of Jardins du Trocadéro’s close proximity to the Eiffel Tower there are lots of tourists. Locals generally avoid Jardins du Trocadéro and look for another quieter picnic spot. Tour buses regularly stop at the garden to let tourists stretch their legs and get some air. Tourists rest all around, recharging and taking in the beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower before taking on Paris again. Another common site is the goofy photos they take with the Eiffel Tower in the background for their friends and family back home. Cocktail and Cuisine: Not applicable. Price: Entrance into the garden is free. What to Wear: Anything goes! Insider info/When to go: Pack a blanket and picnic basket, and find a spot in the garden. It’s cheaper and more fun than eating in an expensive Paris restaurant." hide

  • b&m

    Paris
    Restaurant / Burger Joint
    b&m - Restaurant | Burger Joint in Paris.
    Jul 12, 2013 Custom burgers! "My Take: My search for the tastiest burger in Paris ends at B&M. Being a picky eater, I love that you can custom order your burger and choose exactly what goes into it. B&M only opened their doors a few months ago but are holding their own against other gourmet burger restaurants in Paris. It’s all about the burgers. They keep everything simple and focus on the quality of their food. The burgers are addictive and you’ll find yourself going back for more and more! The Scene: The staff is friendly and chatty. They are always willing to explain the menu and tell you more about the restaurant. The staff and simple décor add to the laid back atmosphere which is quite refreshing. B&M is only open for lunch and dinner, with peak times getting very busy. It’s a great place to meet with friends and catch up over a burger and a beer, or just to enjoy a quiet evening with your significant other. Cocktail and Cuisine: B&M makes their own meat onsite which explains the fresh, juicy patties in their burgers. Patrons have a choice between the suggested burgers or building their own. You fill out a form with exactly what you want in your burger. The fillings include cheese, bacon, avocado, cream cheese, lettuce, tomato, mushrooms, pickles and more! The result is a flavourful burger that you’ve designed yourself. There isn’t a lot of variety in terms of drinks. For alcohol they only have beer and wine, and sodas, tea and coffee for non-alcoholic drinks. Prices: For custom burgers with all the fillings you desire you’d expect to pay a lot, this is Paris after all. But the prices at B&M are more than reasonable. The burger bases start from 6.95€, with little or no cost for some of the fillings. An extra 4€ is added if you’d like fries and a drink with your burger. What to Wear: B&M is very laid back so you can dress casual. Insider info/when to go: Grab a seat on the terrace in summer because it gets very hot inside the restaurant with all the open kitchen grilling going on. " hide

  • Belushi's Gare Du Nord

    Paris
    Bar / Sports Bar
    Belushi's Gare Du Nord - Bar | Sports Bar in Paris.
    Jul 12, 2013 Bigger and better! "My Take: Belushi's has outdone themselves with the new Bulushi's Gare du Nord. Firstly the location next to Gare du Nord train station is very convenient making Belushi's accessible and the rest of Paris accessible to their guests. On entry I'm greeted by the biggest, most friendly friendly smiles from the reception staff. Infact, the whole team of staff at Belushi's are warm and friendly and can speak to you in your language. Belushi's Gare du Nord just opened their doors and they are bigger and better than ever. they offer a main bar area with a stage above the bar, ample seating, a street cafe, a breakfast room, a basement bar and not forgetting Christopher's Inn, the backpackers hostel above the bar. The backpackers is like none I've ever seen before. It's upscale and has 600 modern and chic rooms with stunning views of Paris. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped to ensure guests really enjoy their stay in Paris. Back in the bar the design team paid attention to detail. The chic, hipster mismatched furnishings are so interesting. I think Belushi's has really struck the winning formular with their Gare du Nord branch! The Scene: The atmosphere is very lively and festive with an international vibe. Backpackers from around the world mingle with expats. You're always guaranteed to see new faces and make friends from countries you never knew existed! The event schedule is packed with something to do everyday from live music, to open mics, to beer pong and live sports games shown on the many big screens. There is something to suit everyone's taste. Cocktail and Cuisine: Belushi's has a new, sleek redesigned menu, in different languages with tasty tapas, quesadillas, pizza, burgers and some new additions to the menu. Prices: The good thing about Belushi's is that you still have money in the bank after a night out! The prices are still low and affordable especially during happy hour where cocktails are 5.59€, beer is 4.50€ and wine 2.50€ per glass. What to Wear: You won't go wrong with casual. Insider info/When to go: Check their website or Facebook page for the weekly event schedule. " hide
