Between visits to the major attractions of Paris you might want to try wandering off the beaten track and exploring aspects of the capital best known only to Parisians. Try the Salon du Vintage for a trip down memory lane, then enjoy a delicious brunch.
Relive the 60s and 70s
The Salon du Vintage is an essential meeting place for enthusiasts of the fashions of yesteryear. This market, which takes place at the Carreau du Temple, brings together a wide selection of dealers in men’s and women’s clothing and fashion accessories of the past. You can also find vintage furniture to lend a retro look to your home, and music fans can search amidst collections of original vinyl and period turntables. During your stay at the Hotel Université, we invite you to dive back into the world of the past to discover the creations of the great couturiers of the 60s and 70s such as Paco Rabanne and Courrèges. A blast from the past!
The best brunches in Paris
Eternal Paris, a symbol of French culture, is certainly adept at picking up the most appealing facets of British culture. Brunch, a portmanteau word combining breakfast and lunch, originated in England in the late 19th century, and the enjoyment of Sunday brunch is still alive and thriving in the City of Light, as clearly demonstrated by the following eating places.
In an intimate atmosphere in the 10th arrondissement, the Maison Bleue awaits you with a homemade brunch comprising the freshest produce. Wandering over to the edge of Montmartre, you’ll want to check out Uptown, where you can enjoy eggs with crème parmesan and a coconut mango mousse, all on a sunny terrace. Fans of hearty dishes will delight in Flat Iron, offering a New York ambience in the 10th arrondissement. If you’re insatiable, we suggest the Artiste where brunch is presented as a buffet from which you can pile your plate as high as you wish. By the Canal Saint Martin, close to the Hotel Université, you can enjoy your brunch in the Poutch, where calorific gourmet dishes are on offer that will recharge your batteries for the entire week.
