Last-minute tips and ideas for New Year’s Eve

Bonjour Parismarais Readers,

No plans for tomorrow evening?
Here’s our last-minute selection to enjoy a fantastic New Year’s Eve in Paris’ favorite district.


FABULOUS ! « I’ve never tasted anything like this in my life » This is what you’ll say when they’ll bring you the first dish – Every detail of every meal looks like a work of art. Foie gras mousse served on a black tile, bœuf Bourguignon that looks like chocolate cake, salmon and beef together, chocolate and pistachio delirium… Every single meal is an experiment. The food is delicious, the staff is wonderful, the decor is great… and it’s only 29€ for 3 courses. Monjul has opened in may 2007 and it’s already one of the Marais Top 10 restaurants.

Talented Chef Julien Agobert and his team will surprise you like no one else ever did before.

Luxury Guesthouse in le Marais : enjoy 4 nights for the price of 3
in January

The Marais Guesthouse is not a hotel, more of a cross between a hotel particulier and a prestige bed & breakfast. But it qualifies amply our 4 lys category because Yann-Gabriel Hentschke’s meticulously restored interior breaks the mold—and positively exudes attitude. He lovingly tracked down the raw materials to transform a derelict shell into a chateau-in-miniature. There are stone floors, furnitures brought back from Poitiers and Loire Valley. The fireplaces date mostly from the same era. Carefully selected antiques complete the effect, and go some way towards explaining the owner policy of disclosing the exact location when guests reserve.

The Cheapest solution: metro + RER train
Metro map: click here (PDF format)

From Gare du Nord Eurostar train terminal:
- Métro line 5 direction Place d' Italie, stop at République for North Marais or Filles du Calvaire. Line 11 and get off at Hôtel de Ville or Saint Paul for south Marais.

- Taxi from Gare du Nord or Gare de Lyon will cost you around 10 € and take a maximum of 15 minutes.

From Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport:
- RER express train takes you to Gare du Nord train station in 30 to 45 minutes for around 10 €, it's the fastest way to travel to central Paris, but not the best if you have lots of luggage.

- Taxi, if you have a lot of luggage will cost you around 50 € and will take a minimum of 45 minutes to go to the city center.

It will be almost impossible to find a cab on New Year's Eve but the metro will be running all night…
If you wish to hire a chauffeured limo, check out Parismarais' selected Limousine Companies:


On January 1st smoking will be forbidden in all public places in France including bars, pubs, clubs, restaurants hotel lobbies, etc... just like in England  Italy and probably soon in all European countries.

It's a good new for 75% of the population, such a great idea to live longer and enjoy longer the wonders of Paris … so why not joining us at last-minute for the most wonderful New Year you've ever had!

Happy New Year to our 1.600.000 readers in the past 3 years … Bonne Année et Bonne Santé en 2008!
