Clothes Shop
$$$$
“This store is a real experience! You have a large array of niche perfumes...and then 147 video screens and sliding wooden panels hiding curated clothes from Gucci, Rick Owens, and Saint Laurent. Really, though, this is where I splurge on an “It Bag,” like the latest Fendi “baguette” style that goes under your arm. I find it interesting to mix tableware with fashion, but they do it here by carrying the famous Fornasetti plates and jars adorned with the various visages of opera singer Lina Cavalieri. It’s not that easy to find them—and they are not cheap, either!”

“As a magician, I am forced to give you this piece of advise: spend a few hours at The Double Fond. The neighbourhood is great, you're not very far from the Place des Vosges and you can get magic cocktails. And this place is really magic cause all the waiters are real magicians. You can also experience a show in their tiny vaulted cellar. Pure sleight of hand.”

Nail Salon
$$
“MARAIS / TEMPLE – A deux minutes de Beaubourg, le Salento a planté sa botte dans une vieille maison typique du Marais. La salle est coquette et l’ambiance intimiste. Parfait pour se recharger les batteries après un shopping ou une visite du quartier. DE L’ITALIEN GOURMET – Les plats de pâtes fraîches, la burrata, le risotto, la salade de légumes grillés à la romaine : tout est bon et copieux. La charcuterie tranchée en direct fond dans la bouche ! Le service est adorable. JOLI CHOIX DE VINS – La liste est concise mais quelques belles appellations : Salento, Abruzzes, Toscane, Vénétie. Et quelques vins en pichet dont un sicilien très agréable.”
