    I'll be there for the Film Festival if that's when you're going. Go eat at Le Maschou.

    Anyone loving pastries should try Carl Marletti, one of the best lemon tart in Paris. Used to live next to... Hard temptation !

    Now I'm sure this comes too late, but I second Jovoy even though I haven't had the best customer service there. They just didn't seem that interested in me. It is still a good shop and they weren't rude and the selection is great.

    Other suggestions are:
    Marie Antoinette at Place du marché Sainte Catherine, 5 rue d'Ormesson
    Nose at 20 rue Bachaumont
    Sens Unique at 13 rue du Roi de Sicile

    Heading to Paris in a week for a week and all tips for points of interest are very welcome.. Especially cafes, not-too-expensive restaurants, galleries and shops (in addition to obvious ones).

    Also, does anybody know if the VOID is still alive?

    Yes VOID is still open in "Rue des Haudriettes" in the 3rd arondissement.

    My only regret about Paris was I only got to stay for a day and two nights. I loved this city. We ate at this amazing little kebab shop, hey it was late and we were looking for cheap, the first night. Pizza was a dream. The next day we had dinner at Hard Rock because my flat mate has this goal to go to all of them. It was alright, but would have preferred something else. Maybe next time.

    I'm going to Italy to see the Rudolf Stingel exhibit in December and will have a few more weeks to have fun. I'm planning on visiting Paris for the first time.. I know, it's sad that I have never been. Is it all it's cracked up to be? I ask because I am trying to squeeze in a couple more cities and am preplanning and booking on airbnb. I've read that it is quite small, and I have always imagined it being an amazing city.....but can it be in such a small dose?!
    My favorite city is New York and I while I know it isn't New York, is it even an East Village?! In other words, is it worth the travel time or should I look elsewhere to Berlin?

    Impossible to say what you will appreciate, but if you are looking for Easy Village in Europe, I don't think Paris should be your top pick.

    well, i'm glad to report that paris is my first stop! I got my passport much sooner than i expected (2 weeks, normal delivery, #nice) -
    i'm most likely leaving this wednesday...going to do final airbnb and possibly hostel prep tonight....
    any advice for a newbie? best hoods (for airbnb browsing) and really a cheap place to grab libations?
    sadly, i wasn't expecting this so soon, not that i'm complaining, but my french is terrible so i'll be really studying until then...

    Forget airbnb. There are much better websites. Airbnb = inflated prices + living in someone else's apartment while they are away for the week.

    Paris isn't small by any means. I'm from Chicago and I would compare it to that (for size only of course). If its your first time there, you'll have a hard time sussing out the good places, except of course for this amazing thread. Also, it's Worth saying that when you are in a "local" "cool" neighborhood in Paris (anywhere in France for that matter), you'll be treated as an outside, because you are one. The French culture has a bit of a 'carapace' that takes time to get past (unless you are just an Eiffel-tower-tourist, then it doesn't matter).

    I think your idea about Berlin is a better one. You'll find a way more groovy and accessible scene. Berlin is where its at right now. Fo realz.

    Anyone from Paris traveling to NYC this weekend or next week and have room in your luggage, I will love you forever and buy you lunch.

    I will be in Paris 11/27 - 12/2. Looking for recommendations for art exhibits/galleries and live music.

    Faust - Timing is most likely too late but if I can help just let me know.

    Going to Paris for three months. Any tips on furnished apartment rentals by the month?
