Spending a magical 24 hours in Paris wit the Renaissance hotels; including an EPIC party at the Eiffel Tower!
39 Avenue de Wagram, Paris, 75017, France
The Hotel: One of the first things I noticed (and loved) about the Renaissance Arc de Triomphe was the bloody amazing location, just a stones throw from the Arc de Triomphe as well as the Champs Elysee. It's in such a central location that's easy to reach key points around the city. We were treated to super luxe rooms with the most incredible floor to ceiling window that overlook a typically Parisian street - #GOALS much?!
Where we ate: Upon arrival in Paris we headed to the most incredible restaurant; Balagan - located in the Renaissance Vendome and newly launched by infamous chef Assaf Granit (co-owner of Jerusalem's famous MachneYuda restaurant and London’s award-winning The Palomar/The Barbary). The restaurant aims to make customers feel like they are at home; and it really does give off a homely, welcoming feel. Not to mention some of the most incredible humus and pita I've ever tried! This restaurant is DEFINITELY one for your bucket list if you're visiting Paris anytime soon. Oh, and let's not forget that Insta-worthy decor!
What we did: We wandered the sunny streets of Paris on our first day pre-party to capture some shots by the Eiffel Tower and walked along the Seine (SO dreamy!). Post party we visited the Louis Vuitton Foundation and it was such a treat! I would highly recommend a visit - the building alone is a work of art so if you're into art/architecture and culture then this is a MUST for you!
The party: I have to say, it's not every Wednesday I get bloody invited to party at the Eiffel Tower; this for me was a massive highlight (and the sole purpose of our trip - we were kindly invited along as guests of the Renaissance Hotels to celebrate their 'Discover The Lights' event). First of all, I had NO idea - what does one wear to party on the Eiffel Tower?! I settled on my red floral dress from H&M and some barely there strappy heels from Primark. We sipped on champagne, ate some delicious canapés, rubbed shoulders with some of France's finest and danced the night away until we were ready for bed! It was such a fabulous evening!
Have you been to Paris before? Do you love it as much as me? Have you been recently? Any tips on what to do/see whilst there?
*A HUGE thank you to the Renaissance Arc de Triomphe for hosting us during our stay - it was wonderful! 🙂
