Atelier Vivanda Paris

Sans titre

A meat and potatoes place… It sounds hardly simple but believe me the only 20 seats they have are advisable to reserve right now!

Akrame Benallal is the chef behind this steakhouse creation awarded already two Michelin stars for his sophisticated “one of kind” restaurant “Akrame” located right across the street. However, his concept for this modern bistro was clear: vegetarians stay away! To start with, waiters wearing leather butchers’ aprons serving delicious iberic ham cut right off the bat in front of you. Coming from a semi-open kitchen variety of beef, duck, chicken, pork and veal cuts, cooked perfectly to your liking. Serve with All-you-can-eat rule sides completing this carnivorous adventure. Desserts are up to level to! Fortunately, with an easy choice, because any one you go for, you cannot go wrong!

Really? Is a one of must go in the neighbourhood!

Music & Culture

At Philharmonie de Paris

Blending Jean Nouvel’s innovative architecture and the acoustics design of Marshall Day Acoustics makes this place a modern vision of immersion into the world of music.

Beside the 2400 seat auditorium with walls composed of moving panels, treated to increase reflection and reverberation to resonate the sound in the right direction, there is very cosy amphitheatre with only 250 seat (and an organ pipe consisting over 7000 pipes with 91 stop designed as part of building architecture by Rieger Orgelbau). Several rehearsal rooms and concert hall regularly animated by world-class orchestras, soloists, composers of classic and contemporary music from every genre. Philharmonie de Paris allows you also to discover music from another perspective by taking part in their learning activities and temporary exhibitions by visiting their museum of music or divulge resources of their extensive media library.

Adding to that bars and restaurants (especially the one on the 6th floor offering panoramic view of Paris) where you can refresh and relax between activities. This makes Philharmonie de Paris the perfect place to escape from reality and having unforgettable date with a music!
