Re: Paris

Hi Karl

Re: Paris

batofar used to have good nights, hopefully it still does

keep hackney crap

Re: Paris

Hi Karl. Forget about getting good coffee in Paris... They are rarely seen. Go for italian coffee bars if you want anything decent here.

There are some good second hand clothes stores in Marais (4th), like "Free P Star". There's also "Killiwatch" on Rue Tiquetonne, but it's expensive, and full of hipsters.

Don't miss the amazing falafels in Marais too! "Chez Marianne" on Rue des Rosiers is my favourite falafel place, it's a big place on a corner, you can't miss it. If you want a bit fancier food, try "Le Coude Fou" on Rue Bourg Tibourg, also in Marais. It's my favourite place here. three dishes and wine will cost you about 40-45

"In the 1960s, Avedon also ventured into photojournalism, covering such hot subjects as Civil Rights campaigners in the American South (1963), the Ku Klux Klan, patients in a mental hospital and the Vietnam war

Re: Paris

What kind of prices would be ok for you ?

Re: Paris

Anything happening in Paris 1-7th August? Or is the city completely empty? smile

Re: Paris

I stayed at Hotel Duret (nr Argentine) a couple of years back. Nice in a boutique kinda way, maybe they do some good deals?

Check out Le Relais de Venise (near Neuilly-Port Maillot) for top drawer entrecote & frites - no menu until deserts- everyone gets the same starter and main.

Also, authentic Vietnamese Pho on Avenue de Choisy (nr Place d'Italie)

klaus schulze - audentity
performance - securite

than a bit of disco (mainly lp's in french pressings)
from an old guy on the main street lot's of Maligator kind of stuff mostly stuff that i already had, but not in french pressing, and figured that 4-5 euro is a good price for them (revelacion,brigade mondaine, quartz,don ray etc)
best thing in terms of value was an og arpadys for 15 eu in better condition then the one i bought on e-bay 3
years ago for $108
spent over 6 hours in there as there are so manny diffrent sellers and shops, i can see how i would be checkin it every few weeks if i lived there

Re: Paris

So, some of my friends are in Paris now until April 7th, are there any parties I can send them to?

Re: Paris

hello from a vagabond robette!

i am going to paris from the 9th till the 20th, and happily found a robot-friendly disco-party at batofar on the 15th!  so if any of you are going to this , chime on in, i'd love to meet you!

http://www.batofar.org/wp-content/uploads/flyers/flyer-cc18-batoflar-r-222x300.jpg

for the rest of the time, i'll be guiding around my brother who has never been to europe, so prolly some touristy stuff.  however, we both love anything related to science and electronics, and off the beaten path kind of stuff, so please let me know of any dusty museums with old electro-mechanical contraptions , stuff like that.   also wondering what's left (if anything) of the squat parties / free parties that were going on last time i lived there which was in 2001, and also there were a few abandoned buildings which became artists studios ("electron libre" was the name of one i believe...) i'm into exploring that stuff too.  soooo.....  if you are in paris, let's chat! 

greets and hugs
