5 original addresses to discover in and around Paris this summer

With the Olympic Games set to rock the City of Light this summer, there are plenty of activities to (re)discover in the capital. From a bar at -20° to an open-air cinema at the Plaza Athénée, here are five places to try out in Paris and its inner suburbs over the coming months.


A cocktail at -20° at the Ice Kube Bar

The only Ice Bar in Paris is at the four-star Kube Hotel in the 18th arrondissement. While the sun should be warming up the City of Light, the Ice Kube Bar is sure to delight visitors in search of a refreshing drink. You’ll even have to put on a down jacket to enter this palace of ice at -20°. A frosty atmosphere like no other!


Colourful food served directly to the table at Ora Farmhouse

The countryside in Paris. That’s the idea behind Ora Farmhouse, a temporary restaurant nestling in the Buttes-Chaumont park in the 19th arrondissement. The restaurant is divided into several areas. The ground floor is home to the Verrière and its maximalist bar made up of large flowers. On the first floor is the Greenhouse, with a fresco by Charlotte Bohn. On the second floor, the Grenier is an intimate, bucolic and warm place, with a bar, table tennis and karaoke. Outside, the Guinguette, housed in a wooden chalet, offers pastries, sandwiches, ice creams, juices and picnic baskets.

As well as its picturesque design, Ora Farmhouse is renowned for its exceptional culinary shows. Chef SaaYaan and his teams pass between the guests to prepare the flexitarian dishes directly on the table. Artichoke hummus, braised baby carrots, puntalette risotto and aubergine garnish are just some of the dishes to be shared, alongside sea bream ceviche, octopus and farmhouse veal shoulder. For dessert, red fruit pavlova, tiramisu and lemon meringue pie add a touch of sweetness to the palate. A feast for the taste buds, enhanced by captivating, original service.


An air of holiday at Splash


Splash is a long way from the hustle and bustle of the city, despite being located in Asnières-sur-Seine, 10 minutes from Paris. By the pool, you can curl up in chairs, deckchairs and rattan armchairs and enjoy the restaurant’s pretty tables with a French Riviera feel. The furniture is as colourful as the dishes, which smell of the South. The outdoor areas even offer uninterrupted views of the Seine and its boats.

You’ll feel right at home here, with a holiday spirit that’s more than welcome. This summer, chef Arnaud Delvienne even takes centre stage with a convivial brazier where vegetables and meat are grilled. This trendy Parisian bistro is the ideal place to unwind at the end of the day with a good meal and a cocktail in a warm, sunny atmosphere.
