Uncommon Paris

The City of Light, despite being one of the world's most visited capitals, still has plenty of hidden treasures waiting to be uncovered.

There is the obvious Paris: the Eiffel Tower sparkling at night, lovers embracing on the Pont Neuf, miles of sidewalk cafés. The Louvre. And there is the Paris you haven't been acquainted with yet, hidden behind grand portals that open onto intimate courtyards, inside a maze of winding cobblestone streets, and sometimes, just camouflaged in plain sight.

From Europe’s most state-of-the-art cinema nestled inside a historic palace hotel, to a thriving craft cocktail movement bubbling in the city’s speakeasies, and historic bistros with a decidedly contemporary point of view, we have curated the experiences and enclaves to seek out in Paris now, according to in-the-know insiders and local tastemakers. This is Uncommon Paris.
