Though PFW marks the grand finale of fashion month, these are the shows we’ve been waiting for. Paris churns out catwalks like no other, and off the runway the city is equally haute. Here,we’ve gathered the chicest restos, hotels and locales the capital has to offer. Put on some rouge, take note, and do the city à la mode.
…have a super sexy hotel stay: Hotel Amour, 8 rue de Navarin
They don’t call it Hotel Amour for nothing. Neon lights, leopard rugs and erotic art make this boutique hotel the sexiest stay in the city. It was opened by Paris/NYC cool arbiter André Saraiva, to give tourists a fast track to the naughtier side of Paris. It’s intimate both in size and ambience, giving you the chance to check into paradise while leaving your inhibitions at the door.
…find a home away from it all: Amastan Paris, 34 Rue Jean Mermoz
If you crave that chez toi feeling while traveling, look no further than the newly opened Amastan Paris. The Amastan focuses on collaboration and bespoke hospitality, offering sleek handcrafted interiors with rotating artist residencies and pop-up installations for a multifaceted hotel experience. For PFW, they’ve teamed up with the equally hip travel brand Away, to create a stylish line-up of post-show worthy events. Yoga sessions, open bars, and dj sets repeat… this hotel knows how to keep it cool.

…front row on the low: Jardin des Tuileries, 113, rue de Rivioli
White sands, macaron cafés and stunning fountains set the stage for the oh so magnifique Tuileries garden. Situated beside the Louvre, the fashionable resting spot turns into a runway during PFW, hosting many of the biggest shows and all the street style frenzy. Even if you only go to nosh and people watch, dress to impress and if you’re lucky you’ll get snapped.
…experience l’art of dining: Les Grands Verres, Palais de Tokyo, 13 avenue du Président Wilson
The freshly revamped Les Grandes Verres sits pretty atop the Palais de Tokyo – Paris’s contemporary “anti-museum.” Modern takes on French classics are served in the shiny vertiginous space, that mixes eco and dietary sustainability with killer cocktails. While there may be no pretention at this swanky resto, with Rick Owens having previously shown here, and CR Book throwing its SS18 party here this time around, the Palais has been consecrated as a secret fashion palace.

…drink amongst the beau monde: Hotel Costes, 241 rue St. Honore
Chic enough to host Valentino’s after party, Hotel Costes is the epitome of sensual Parisan glamour. With its red velvet couches, candlelit chandeliers and open-air courtyard, clinking champagne in this sumptuous locale feels like an insta-date with decadence. Be sure to check out it’s glossy in-house magazine, and the cultish Hotel Costes music compilations in the lobby.
…dance your ass off: Le Montana, 28 rue Saint-Benoît
Anything with André Saraiva’s graffiti stamp of approval is good as gold, and this St Germain des Près boîte takes debauchery to a whole new level. On any given night you’ll find an army of top models, it kids and Purple Magazine types fresh off the runway shaking it here till sunrise. If you dare go, and if you make it past the notoriously discerning door, buckle up for the night of your life.
