Palais de Tokyo
The Palais de Tokyo is the ideal location to present art. The sobering cracked concrete, the exposed ventilation shafts and the counter found in a campervan could almost be a concept. The truth is, they ran out of money during renovations. The grotesque and uncouth ambience has only given this arthouse an even bigger name. The young art scene love the unpretentious venue and the Palais de Tokyo pays it's dues: it is open until midnight. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, fotography, video, fashion, lierature and dance are all on show here. The exhibitions are daring and often well worth seeing. Vernissages take place on the first Thursday of the month and entry is free!

Hotel Eldorado
Is a hotel just for tourists? Not necessarily. The small and chamrming Hotel Eldorado, with an attached bistro is loved by Parisians, for good reason! The green inner courtyard is so appealing and inviting that you never want to leave, and the location is very quiet and peaceful, which makes the Eldorado the ideal place to stay, eat and feel good! The rooms are charming, even if they are simply furnished. However, be warned, some rooms do not feature their own bathroom! However the prices here are very modest for Paris standards.
