Ice Kube Bar

by Ipanema_Princess

A surprising experience if you don't fear getting cold !

The design hotel "Kube" hosts a very special bar... all in ice !
The temperature inside is about -5° / -10° Celsius. And everything is made in ice, even the glasses.

At the entrance you'll be given a coat and gloves. But the best way to get warmer is to drink !
The bar is a partnership with the french Vodka "Grey Goose" so it is a "vodka open bar". You will be able to taste different types of vodka, and also vodka cocktails (my personal favourite was the bubblegum vodka !).

It is expensive : 38 euros for 1/2 hour. But it's a unique experience.
Booking is compulsory, because only 20 people can go inside at the same time.

The location is a bit weird because this is one of the "poorest" area in Paris. Not at all trendy.
And there you find this super chic and fashion hotel...

So if you're interested here's the adress :

1-5, passage Ruelle in the 18th arrondissement
Metro : La Chapelle

Paris in November

by drvanessa

Hello travellers all over the world!!
I'm visiting Paris for a 2nd time after almost a decade and i'd love to receive some tips!
I'm going to Paris with some friends (we're at our early 30s) in the middle of November 2009 for 5 days. Are there any MUSTs that we should attend in the city then?Any sales or expositions?Also any suggestions regarding good dining or bars would be appreciated!
Have lovely travels everyone!

If you are foodies, you might enjoy wandering through the large food market attached to the Bon Marché department store. I brought home some nice things I can't find in England. There are wonderful restaurants all over the city. If you want to get some tips, check out www.chowhound.com (France section). I got some good ideas there before a recent visit a few weeks ago. I had wonderful weather - hope you do, too!

have you thought about renting an apartment many to choose from. It is my favourite way to see the city... relax in the morning with coffee pastry and then walk all day and then in the evening go to Monoprix or Franprix and get pate, cheese and wine for a lovely quiet evening at home.. mind you twice your age... The Bon Marche is worth a look just because everything is displayed so nicely but check out the prices and then look in Monoprix... usually about 1/2..for the special french salts...
Check out pedmar's vt travel guides or email him he is a wealth of info! he maybe away right now..
Almost every where has great food.... Go to musee Dorsay.. my favourtie and bundle up and take the Batobus..(bus on the water) where you can get off and on all day!!
Enjoy..

Paris isn't one of my favourite cities. It's all too touristy for my tastes. But if you want a great restaurant - try this one: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/p/m/448b7b/

Happy travels.

Travel Tips for Paris

Velib' Plus at higher altitudes

by Nemorino

Most of Paris is reasonably flat, but there are some hilly places in the north (Montmartre) and northeast (Buttes Chaumont, Belleville) parts of the city.

This has proved to be something of a problem for Velib', since more people ride downhill than up, so the stations at higher altitudes quickly lose all their bikes and don't get as many back.

One thing they do about this is to have electric trucks circulating to redistribute the bikes, but another thing is that all stations at an altitude of 60 meters or higher have been declared "Velib' Plus" stations, and the software has been amended to award an extra free fifteen minutes ("indivisible") to anyone to returns a bike to one of these stations.

So I seem to have earned an extra fifteen minutes simply by riding up to the top of this hill in Belleville (not a very challenging hill, frankly) and docking it here at station 20113 on Rue Piat at the top end of Belleville Park.

Those extra fifteen minutes came in handy the next day when I went to Passy, where I had never been before so I had to keep stopping to look at the map.

Second photo: You can tell which stations are "Velib' Plus" because they have a special logo with a white plus sign in a red circle, at the top of the computer terminal.

Third photo: Here's the same terminal from the other side, also with the "Plus" logo.

Bougival Confidential

by alza

I ate at the Restaurant Le Camélia and recommend it highly to gastronomes. Then I walked through the town and along the Seine, also highly recommended. It's really fantastic to get away from Paris traffic to spend a few hours in a village atmosphere only minutes away.
I know you can do all that in Versailles, and I love the sculptures and parks there, but by now, in my experience, I prefer places like Bougival, where artists used to go and paint.

Le Comptoir

by BeatChick

Lo, the shiny brass comptoir! In any bar in Paris it is the cheapest place to get a drink. Go to the bar, order a drink, pay cheaper & drink it there. Prices go a bit higher if you go to a table & even higher on le terrasse, which affords fab people-watching.

This one is located at Tabac le Marly - 252 rue de Rivoli.

Palace of Versailles Day Trip

by WYLENEoftheWORLD

If you are at all interested in beautiful architecture or incredible interiors, fabulous gardens and wonderful history, visiting the Palace of Versailles is a must. The town of Versailles also has some great food options as well, and altogether makes for a great trip off the beaten path!
