Spring in the 11th arrondissement
There are those who swear by the Latin Quarter, the Golden Triangle or the Opera district. However, culture and entertainment are not confined to those parts of Paris alone. The Hotel L'Antoine team, well versed in the delights of the 11th arrondissement, are always ready to share all their favourite places and best tips with guests. Here are some of their ideas for distinctly Parisian outings this spring…
Museums like no other
Forget traditional museums. Less than thirty minutes on foot from the Hotel L'Antoine, you have a choice of two exceptional institutions. The first is the Edith Piaf Museum. Here, you can step inside the apartment formerly occupied by the famous singer and discover her living environment, objects from her daily life, and artifacts of her incredible career. The place seems to retain her presence and offers an emotional experience. Not far from there, you can dive into the immersive adventure provided by the Atelier des Lumières, where digital technology seems to bring artistic creations to life. This spring, the works of Chagall and Paul Klee are in the spotlight.
Relax and enjoy
Close to the Edith Piaf Museum, you can ascend to the Perchoir Ménilmontant. This rooftop bar and restaurant invites you to enjoy a meal or take a refreshing cocktail break, with Paris at your feet. Or you might prefer to enjoy a circus performance spectacle courtesy of the Cirque d'Hiver Bouglione. In addition to traditional circus acts, the venue hosts concerts and various shows. Finally, don't miss the Onze Bouge, a street festival that has delighted the 11tharrondissement for more than 25 years. From May 17th to 21st, acrobats, dancers and musicians enrich our streets!
Spring in Paris is a real delight and if you follow the recommendations of the Hotel L'Antoine team, you simply won't have the time or the desire to leave the streets of the 11th arrondissement!
