Perfection. Bucket list. Divine. Can I live there? Mrs. Fitzgerald, your martini is ready. My only advice for the best experience is to make sure all the gentleman in your party are wearing tuxedos for your arrival.

We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. We were seated at a small table on the lower main floor in the bar. Both had a couple of "clean dirty martinis" . Great time in this historic bar, good conversation and excellent service.

From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,

spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or

No reservations, last time I went was a Sunday in February and it was busy but a few seats available so no queues. Best thing is to choose your day and time to not be on peak
