You may know that Ladurée have the tastiest macaroons on the Champs Elysées, but you might not know that they have now opened a bar to the rear of the store, celebrating a successful 10-year tenure (if you will).
Designed by Roxane Rodriguez, it's a sort of metal spider's web of modernism meets art nouveau, where organic forms meet with fibre-optic lighting. It's a marked change from the usual creaking parquet and stolid decorative elements the brand adheres to.
Definitely more suited to a quick lunch than a comfortable dinner (the bar stools would live prints on your back!), this could be the place to for a tête à tête with someone you want to impress
One of the best attractions in Paris during Christmas festivities is the Champ Elysées Market. For the holiday season, the avenue looks like a Christmas village.
Christmas market on the Champs Elysées stretches from Concorde Square to the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées. This year more than 200 chalets will welcome you to for shopping for souvenirs, gifts, traditional crafts and gourmet products.
Just stop for a vin chaud, or hot mulled wine. The Christmas market is opened from 10 AM to midnight.
