When spring arrives, so does the desire to go out, to move around, to have fun. Discover the Paris Fair, one of the capital’s most famous events, or relax in some of the city’s best guinguettes. Let the Platine Hotel tell you more ...

The Paris Fair, innovation on every front

Europe’s first commercial and festive exhibition and the must-see event of spring, this year’s Paris Fair will take place from 27th April to 8th May at Porte de Versailles. Its goal? To unveil the latest innovations that combine usefulness with aesthetics through a series of different spaces or universes. This incredible commercial event offers a host of home decoration ideas and invites you to explore the latest trends in leisure, everyday life, artisanal products, and international gastronomy. At the Paris Fair, you will also discover the home and lifestyle trends of the future including domotics, energy solutions, and related objects.


Guinguettes that will turn your head!

Want to enjoy the first rays of sunshine, eating, drinking, and dancing? The Platine Hotel suggests that you visit some of the best guinguettes, or taverns, in Paris - either by the water, or not.

You’ll find La Javelle at the Port of Javelle in western Paris. This popular guinguette serves aperitifs on the terrace just a few steps from the River Seine. The tavern invites patrons to enjoy its wellness workshops, its food truck, its wine caravan, and its eclectic cultural and artistic programme.

A reference to the green spaces of Paris, the "Le Fer à Cheval" guinguette can be found in the verdant setting of the Domaine de Saint-Cloud. Highlights include an all-you-can-eat buffet and dancing till dawn in a friendly club atmosphere. Although this establishment is only open at weekends, it may well become this summer’s hottest spot.

Nowhere embodies the guinguette spirit more than Le Rosa Bonheur. You’ll love this small boho bar and guinguette at the Buttes Chaumont and it’s the ideal place to lounge and sip a cocktail in the evening. The friendly rustic atmosphere, low prices, and idyllic setting makes it a great place to eat, drink, and dance.

La Bonne Franquette in Montmartre is one of the capital’s most famous restaurants. Dine on tasty regional cuisine in the shade of centuries-old trees, enjoy musical entertainment like the French cancan, or dance to the notes of the accordion.
