What's on in Paris

The « Doré » way of life in Paris

It is said he brought the « power of the imagination to Europe ». Mainly thanks to his illustrations… Gustave Doré has illuminated a big part of the 19th century with black, verve and humour! Discover the « Doré » way of life thanks to the beautiful exhibition the Musée d'Orsay dedicated to him until June 5.

It is true that the Musée d'Orsay is a cult place for all those who love 19th century art in Paris. The former train station revisited as a museum was the ideal place to present this big exhibition about Gustave Doré (1832-1883), mainly celebrated for his incredible etchings of the works of Dante, Rabelais, Hugo or Balzac.

Original or imaginary. This time, in stead of just stopping at the illustrations that may have made the French artist famous, the exhibition meticulously reveals all the other sides of his work and his talents. From drawing to painting, from watercolour to sculpture. Often original or imaginary, the inspiration of Doré is expressed in all ranges of emotion!

To see Paris, you might as well get up high and take refuge on one of its highest points. The Eiffel Tower, Montparnasse Tower and Montmartre are three popular places to enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the French capital. And in summer when the sun is shining, the Opéra Cadet recommends the most beautiful rooftop terraces!

Chatting, toasting or admiring the landscapes and the decor of Paris. These are ideal hobbies for rooftop lovers! To do so in Paris, you must take the stairway to heaven! Whether you’re on the 2nd or 3rd level of the Eiffel Tower, the “Iron Lady” is a legendary spot where the view (like champagne) will make your head spin!

Have a drink further up. For those who dream of skyscrapers, Montparnasse Tower seems as if it is rising up to heaven. A beautiful terrace in the sun with a magnificent view awaits you in the city of fashion and design. Just like the terraces of the Galeries Lafayette, Printemps and Beaubourg (le Georges).

You’re like us: with a little attention, you noticed a river flows through the centre of Paris. The Seine has been fascinating people for centuries by its bridges, waves and views. To enjoy everything, why not treat yourself to a ride on the waves…or an entertaining evening on the water? The Hôtel Opéra Cadet highly recommends it.

Yes, it is a must. So why wait? Take the cruise of your dreams down the Seine and let the bridges, Palais Royal, churches, Notre Dame, statues, museums and even the Eiffel Tower pass before your eyes, just like at the movies… There are 2 places to hop on board: Pont Bir-Hakeim bridge or Solférino-musée d’Orsay. http://www.parisinfo.com/ou-sortir-a-paris/excursions-et-plein-air

Cocktail on the water. If you prefer to enjoy the Seine in a more static and aesthetic way, take time to visit Île de la Cité. At the Jardins du Pont Neuf, beautiful floating and anchored terraces invite you to unwind while enjoying a glamorous cocktail near Notre Dame.http://www.lesjardinsdupontneuf.com/

One thing’s for sure: when staying at the Hôtel Opéra Cadet, you are in the heart of the most elegant part of Paris that you can discover on foot: Rue de Rivoli, Saint-Honoré, Champs-Elysées, Palais Royal… But exploring the chic next door can not be complete without La Madeleine. A real gold mine for wild shopping sprees as well as elegant and gourmet places.

It extends around the monumental Greco-Roman style church. And through the streets, avenues and alleys, you will eagerly notice their sparkle in the shop windows: the chic and glamorous treasures of Chanel, Gucci, Prada, Moncler, Hermes and more.

Chic “aftershopping” right next door. And to relax after so much elegance and fashion, enjoy a gourmet “aftershopping” moment:  a sweet treat at Fauchon Café, 30 place de la Madeleine?  Or caviar and champagne at the Prunier, 15 place de la Madeleine? So many trendy and glamorous places located just a short walk from the Hôtel Opéra Cadet…you won’t know where to start.

Paris in July is like Italy in May. There is plenty of sunshine and you can discover all the most popular tourist attractions as well as the little known places that seem almost forgotten by the crowd…Magic awaits you this summer at Opéra Cadet.

First, there is a tidal wave. When you are between the roundabout of the Champs-Élysees and Place de la Concorde, you can’t miss it. An endless crowd and in the middle, a blue ribbon unravels like a red carpet. Beautiful uniforms, tassels, proud horses and more. Voila! Enjoy the Bastille Day parade before the giant fireworks display above the Eiffel Tower.

Not only are you are in a convenient location for enjoying these popular public activities, but also for discovering the many charming and little known places in Paris. Just one out of several great ideas: hop on a vélib' bike and experience original rides around the Petite Ceinture. These old railway tracks were partly refurbished and turned into beautiful green areas that are very pleasant during the summer.

When staying at the Opéra-Cadet Hotel, you are not far from the most beautiful avenue in the world...and, therefore, quite close to one of the most famous monuments in Paris with the Eiffel Tower: the Arc de Triomphe. Discover it along with one of the best views in the world...that of the Champs-Élysées.

Yes, the view is truly amazing. From the roof, 50 meters off the ground, you can gaze all the way down the Champs-Élysées to the famous Place de la Concorde and beyond with the Seine and Eiffel Tower. The view is outstanding!

Once climbing back down from the roof of the Arc de Triomphe, take the time to appreciate the monument itself, originally built by Napoléon to celebrate the Battle of Austerlitz (1806). Discover the grave of the Unknown Soldier and especially the remarkable romantic high relief sculptures that tell the story of the French Revolution through their stone carvings… http://arc-de-triomphe.monuments-nationaux.fr/

The Spring has arrived in Paris, to the delight of all guests staying at the Opéra Cadet. The warm sun triggers our instinctive desire to go out and enjoy the gardens.  Enjoy the gardens? Yes, in just a few minutes, you will be here in the beautiful Tuileries Gardens. Come and explore the extraordinary gardens.

It's true that they are geometrical. But that is how French gardens work. Paths, groves, well-trimmed plants, ponds, statues...And between these markers and straight lines, you will find Diana the Huntress, Apollo chasing nymphs and Hercules with his club...

From here, you can see the roofs of the Louvre, from there, a piece of La Concorde, and a little farther, the Eiffel Tower… It's truly an extraordinary garden! On the benches or in the armchairs, facing the sun, you completely forget about the city.  And from 4 to 7 June, gardeners and their expertise throughout the city will be featured by the "Jardins, jardins" (Gardens, gardens) event. Rendezvous in the gardens!

He will soon be 70 years old and yet he's still a gentleman of rock 'n' roll. How does he do it? The answer is found through pictures, sounds and memorabilia galore at the Philarmonie, a new trendy and musical hot spot in Paris. And it is David Bowie, the glamorous rock 'n' roll dandy, who is using it for the first time. We recommend the "Bowie is" experience from the Opéra-Cadet.

And to begin the Bowie experience, you must go from "station to station" in Paris before reaching La Villette and opening the doors to the Philarmonie, leading to the exhibit. Here, you have the choice of "Rebel Rebel" or "Suffragette City"! Pirate, glamorous outsider, mod, rock 'n' roll or gentleman dandy...Every side of Bowie is fashionable!

The Bowie myth. And here, follow him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame flying the banner of elegance over his million different transformations! Videos, music, testimonies, memorabilia, objects...And the little English man in suit and tie becomes the gentleman of rock 'n' roll. A legend is born!   http://davidbowieis.philharmoniedeparis.fr/

He played with shadows and light, creating realistic and trompe-l’œil effects. Fond of Baroque, yet ascetic art, Velázquez was a genial dandy amongst the Catholic kings. Three centuries later, Paris celebrates his astonishing talent at the Grand Palais from 25 March to 13 July. The Opéra-Cadet staff highly recommends this major Parisian event.
His century is known as the Golden Age because of Spain’s influence on the rest of the world through the gold found in the Americas. But we could have called it the “Time of Velázquez” as the dandy painter - 1599/1660 – left his mark on this era and since then became a true artistic legend.
The Golden Age in Paris. He is known for his famous portraits of important Spanish leaders and the Infantes as well as for his very distinctive painting techniques. The Parisian exhibition takes the time to examine his works, like those of other artists of his time, in order to help visitors discover their marvellous golden glow! Absolutely fascinating!

Goodbye 21st century! Hello early 20th! In Paris, near the Opéra-Cadet, the Pinacothèque summons this spring the gold paints, curves and provocation of one of the most brilliant Viennese painters. Gustav Klimt -1862, 1918 – and the artistic movement of the Vienna Secession await you until 21 June in Paris!

Describing the evolution of this Viennese movement from the Vienna Secession to Expressionism is the main focus of this remarkable exhibition entitled “Au temps de Klimt, la Sécession à Vienne” (At the time of Klimt, the Vienna Secession). Eroticism, flamboyance and sensual provocation, guests at the Opera Cadet will discover an artistic oasis near their favourite hotel!

An eyeful of gold. The Pinacothèque not only offers a wonderful selection of works by Klimt such as Judith I (1901) or Frise Beethoven but also a wide range of paintings created by the one and only Schiele or Kokoshka during the Vienna Secession as well as typical and fine examples of Viennese arts and crafts of the time. A real artistic gold mine!  http://www.pinacotheque.com/index.php?id=1000
