Next up: Shayne's guide to Paris 

After heading to Paris for fashion week, I extended my trip as I was enjoying the city so much. There is so much to explore, and you can get a little lost - but that’s half the fun. This is my guide to where to eat, drink, shop, and everything in between in Paris.

Favourite arrondissement 

Le Marais by far, as it has the best mix of everything - a lively Parisian vibe, excellent shopping, beautiful buildings and a bustling food scene.


32 Rue du Mont Thabor, 75001

Known as Kim & Kanye’s favourite burger, I couldn’t leave Paris without trying the Mac Ferdi cheeseburger (it took two tries, as the first night they had sold out by the time I arrived). This quirky hole in the wall bar serves only 48 burgers per service, and I was told they’re usually gone by 8:30pm. It was well worth the return the next day for lunch as it was my favourite thing I ate in Paris. Tip: go early, or try lunch as it’s walk-ins only.

Cafe Nuances 

25 Rue Danielle Casanova 

Undoubtedly the coolest cafe in Paris. Being from Melbourne, I am a coffee snob and the quality and variety here was on par. The fit out was second to none and reminded me of a sneaker store, a great place to sit and take a break from shopping in the 1st. 

Le Relais de Entrecôte

A must visit for your first trip to Paris. Is it touristy? Yes. Will you have to wait an hour in line? Most likely, yes. But is it delicious? Again, yes. There’s no menu at this restaurant, all the staff ask is how you would like your steak cooked. You’re then served a salad, followed by steak drenched in a herby green sauce and a mountain of crispy fries. A second round of steak and fries follows - everything is cooked perfectly.

Le Grande Epicerie de Paris 

38 Rue de Sevres, 75007

Perhaps the fanciest grocery store in the world - it is owned by LVMH after all. The crème de la crème of french butter is stocked here - Le Beurre Bordier, amongst the biggest selection of gourmet meats, cheeses and produce I have ever seen. This is the perfect place to curate an epic picnic and head straight to a nearby park or canal after. After sampling quite a few, I highly recommend the Bordier sel fumé - smoked salt butter. All it needs is a warm baguette. 

Andy Wahloo 

69 Rue des Gravilliers, 75003

A vibey little bar in my favourite district. Expect DJs and eclectic decor - head here for a pre-dinner cocktail as it’s surrounded by so many great restaurants.

Officine Universelle Buly 1803

19 Rue Vieille du Temple, 75004 

An iconic french beauty house founded in 1803, this store is a go-to for luxurious and custom gifts. You can personalise a variety of items that all come exquisitely packaged - from lip balms in engraved leather cases to toothbrushes and combs. A very special shopping experience and keepsake for those at home.

Cafe Kitsune Palais Royal

51 Gal de Montpensier 75001

A must for fashion lovers, this outpost of Maison Kitsune’s cafe is located in a Parisian courtyard overlooking the Jardin du Palais Royal (gardens). An ideal spot for people watching and specialty drinks.

This is your ultimate sign it's time to book that Euro trip!
