[MUSIC] Hi I'm Nilou. And I'm Sarah. Paris is full of amazing restaurants, cheap shops and charming neighborhoods. But all these options can be a bit overwhelming. So on your next trip Why not check out one of the city's most stylish and up-and-coming [UNKNOWN] that has it all. The [UNKNOWN] or upper [UNKNOWN]. First stop, the concept store Merci, which helps put the upper [UNKNOWN] on the style map. Within the lofty space you'll find everything, from design forward clothing to housewares, flowers, fragrances and more. And it gets even better. Profits here are donated to charity. For my dedicated shoppers, however, Mobilier 54 is among the many galleries not to miss. Not only all there mid-century finds by Eames, Knoll, and Bertoia, but the boutique also sells vintage Rolex watches. Hungry yet? Just a few doors. Doors down from Merci you'll find Grazie, a combo pizzeria and cocktail bar. The industrial space with floor to ceiling windows dishes up a buzzy scene and some of the best pizzas in town. For dessert, in the know locals head to Tartes Kluger The passionfruit hazelnut merengue and lime tart is one of my favorites. Hôtel du Petit Moulin is the perfect place to stay in the neighborhood. Christian Lacroix revamped an 18th century bakery where Victor Hugo is said to have bought his bread. The 17 room hotel has plenty of whimsy, with a bold color palette and over sized couture sketches from Lacroix himself as decorative accents. For the ultimate in pampering, there are Hermès toiletries as well. Thanks so much for watching, have a great trip. [MUSIC]
