It used to be l'Etoile, now it's l'Arc. This smart space is just next to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées.
Definitely aimed at a more mature crowd (no club kids here) the emphasis is on style. On weekdays it's a restaurant with 120 seats and an incredible view of the Arc de Triomphe. On weekends no food is served but the space is used as a bar/club with a baroque-meets-60s décor where you can hear some of the latest hits and - hey, why not ? - even dance a little.
If you love photography, then you will surely love the exhibition “Camera in Love” which is hosted by the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume from June 13 to September 24, 2017.
The exhibition showcases the works of Ed van der Elsken who is widely considered one of the most famous Dutch photographers of the 20th century.
The show aims to reveal the poetic nature of Ed van der Elsken, his solidarity with others and the empathy that he showed towards all living creatures. It spotlights a large selection of his iconic photographs which he captured in the streets of Paris in the 1950s and on his trips to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and Tokyo in the 1960s. It also features some of his books and excerpts from his movies.
