American author Ernest Hemingway once said, “Il n’y a que deux endroits au monde où l’on puisse vivre heureux: chez soi et à Paris.” Which translates in English to; “There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: at home and in Paris.”

After a recent stay at Shangri-La Hotel the AnOther and Another Man team share their recommendations on where to go whilst visiting the renowned French capital.

AnOther Editor, Nancy Waters:
Mariage Frères Tea Emporium, 30 rue du Bourg-Tibourg: for the teapots. Oscar Wilde's Tomb, Cimetière du Père Lachaise.”

Another Man Editor, Ben Cobb: 
Gotham DVD, rue Dante is an aladdin’s cave of cult cinema. Deyrolle, rue du Bac: 170-year old taxidermy emporium. Chez L’Ami Louis, rue Vertbois: the best foie gras in town.”

Photographic Director, Christina Hardy:
Bob’s Juice Bar, 15 rue Lucien Sampaix: one of the only juice bars and places to eat healthy food in pairs, opened by an American filmmaker. Guen Mai, 6 rue Cardinale: another healthy option, it’s a macro-biotic place close to Café de Flore. Curio Parlor, 16 rue des Bernardins (boulevard Saint Germaine): great for cocktails – a mixology type bar. Robert et Louise, 64 rue Veille du Temple: the best French steak eaterie.”

Fashion Editor, Agata Belcen:
Christophe, 8 rue Descartes: a lovely little restaurant serving French cuisine and organic wine.”

Digital Marketing Co-ordinator, Mélanie Crété:
"Place St Sulpice, behind Jardin du Luxembourg: nice for a coffee and a place to read a book under the sun. Le Printemps rooftop, 9th floor at 64 boulevard Haussmann: great place for a glass of wine and beautiful view. Le Bon Marche, 24 rue Sèvres: for shopping. Le Pompon, 39 rue des Petites Ecuries: great restaurant/club to go out to on the weekend."

Editorial Assistant, Lucia Davies:
La Coupole, 102 Boulevard Montparnasse: I spent my birthday at this 1000m² French brasserie a few years ago and was served the biggest cake I have ever seen. The basement dance hall is also where Jospehine Baker, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir liked to dance.”
