Paris, the City of Love, boasts an undeniable charm that comes alive under the soft glow of twilight. To have an elegant night in this enchanting city is to immerse yourself in its rich history, refined culture, and timeless beauty.
Here are some ideas to help you create a truly unforgettable evenings in the heart of France.
Our first proposal is to begin your evening with a sumptuous French dinner at a classic brasserie or Michelin-starred restaurant. Savor exquisite dishes like escargot, coq au vin, or foie gras paired with fine French wine. The ambiance of these eateries is a perfect introduction to the city’s elegant atmosphere. We suggest trying out Le Train Bleu.
Another way to spend an elegant evening is to head out when the sun starts to set and embark on a leisurely stroll along the Seine River. The city’s landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral, are illuminated, casting a romantic dreamy glow over the water. This is an excellent opportunity for photographs that capture the city’s timeless beauty.
For an added touch of elegance, consider taking a Seine River cruise. Glide along the water as you pass by illuminated bridges and historic buildings, all while enjoying a glass of champagne. Many cruises also offer live music, making it a truly enchanting experience. We personally prefer the private boat tour options by Paris River Cruise.
Another way to spend an evening in Paris is to visit Montmartre’s cobblestone streets and artistic ambiance. Take the funicular up to the Sacré-Coeur Basilica, where you can marvel at breathtaking panoramic views of the city at night. The area is also known for its lively cafes and art studios. So take your time and enjoy the ambiance that Montmartre has to offer.
No elegant night in Paris is complete without experiencing a world-famous cabaret. Book a show at the Crazy Horse or Moulin Rogue for a night of dazzling performances, glamourous costumes, and captivating music that harks back to the city’s golden era.
Our favorite ways to finish an elegant evening is by indulging in a nightcap at one of Paris’s chic speakeasy bars. These hidden gems offer a unique blend of classic and contemporary cocktails in an intimate setting, providing the perfect ending to your elegant night. For us, the perfect spot is The Little Red Door which has been voted in the World’s 50 Best Bars.
If your budget allows, consider staying at one of Paris’s luxury hotels, such as The Ritz or Le Meurice. These establishments are renowned for their opulent decor, impeccable service, and breathtaking views, adding a touch of grandeur to your night in the city!
