The famous Comédie Française, founded in 1680, is located in the heart of the Palais-Royal in the first arrondissement of Paris. Renowned since the beginning for its quality representations, the Company of French Comedians was in fact awarded on April 17th during the 25th ceremony of the Molières. Un Fil à la Patte by Georges Feydeau, which is now successfully playing at the Salle Richelieu, obtained the price for the best play in public theater, while other comedians of the company were also awarded. If the Comédie Française usually performs plays taken from the best French classics, it is still opening to modern authors such as Ionesco or Becket, to our great pleasure!

Resilient club on the rue des Lombards, the Sunset opened in 1983. It soon became the HQ for musicians and the Parisian public. Under their influence, the basement American bar closed its doors to reopen as the Sunside in 2001, a now cult jazz club. On the menu: muffled acoustics, a private setting and the sure discovery of new musical trends similar to jazz, or new musicians. Whereas the Sunset in dedicated to electric jazz, electro jazz and world music, the Sunside focuses on acoustic jazz. The most prestigious musicians perform here such as Brad Mehldau, Kenny Barron, Kurt Elling, or Terry Callier. Curious or passionate, the Sunset-Sunside pleases every public.
Open from Monday to Saturday from 7 pm to 2 am and ond Sundays from 4 pm to 2 am.

Here is one of the unavoidable places of the Parisian nights. Situated on the place du Palais Royal, just steps from the Louvre, the Cab has won a strong, avant-gardist and trendy reputation over the evenings. But it is first of all a restaurant, with a worldfood cuisine and a Neo-oriental style. Red neon lights, electric atmosphere, thematic nights, Cosmic space by Ora-Ito (futurist ambience with round and fuchsia chairs), eclectic music programming… the Cab is, according to the initiated ones, the most beautiful club of the capital.
Entrance with a drink : 20€.
Club opened from Tuesday to Saturday from 11.30pm until 5am.

My photographers friends, you must be in Paris in November. For the month of photography, the Paris Photo show, dedicated to the fixed image, comes to the Carrousel du Louvre during a few days. A hundred galleries gather together to present a panorama of the photographic expression of the nineteenth century to today. As it has strongly contributed to the history of the twentieth century photography, Central Europe is in the spotlight for this 2010 edition. With more than 90 Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Slovenian and Slovak artists, Paris Photo arouses our growing interest in artistic creation, but delayed due to the obstacles in history (the Iron Curtain, the dividing of Europe, the Cold War, the yoke of censorship ). No more barriers, now we can create !
On Thurday 18th, Friday 19th and Saturday 20th of November from 11.30am until 8pm.
On Sunday 21st of November from 11.30am until 7pm.
Rates : 18€ / 9€ for the students
Until January 16th 2011, the Cinémathèque française hosts Brune/Blonde, an original exhibition created by Alain Bergala. Film clips, television archives, photographs, paintings and short films, the exhibition showcases the cinema and its actresses with their legendary hair. The television archives, through various cultural areas, highlight the influence of the imaginary film, which has guided fashion on the entire generations. The exhibition also introduces the interactions between the cinema and the other arts such as painting, sculpture and photography in the representation of female beauty and mystery. Finally, through unreleased short films, six filmmakers exclusively give us their vision of female hair in a small room designed for the event. From the brown-haired to the blonde and the red, the exhibition seems completely dedicated to the female beauty and to its charms which make the men and the women dreaming for centuries.
Brune/Blonde, an exhibition Arts & Cinéma until January 16th 2011.
Opened from Monday till Saturday from 12pm till 7pm, on Sundays from 10 am till 8pm, and late-night opening on Thurdays until 10pm. Closed on Tuesdays.

Ex Paris Paris, Scopitone on Avenue Opera has nothing to do with the issue of polished pop Mareva Galanter on Paris Premiere, dedicated to the 80′s. Far from the look of disco and “I Love America” by Patrick Juvet, you must show “Rock paw” to return to the club rock sauce Anglo-Saxon. Every evening, two or three French or foreign ignite the stage at 19h. In addition, it grants itself the privilege to snack smart (plates of cheese, foie gras) jumping point into the air over electric sounds! The latest fashionable place downtown.
Restaurant: from 7pm to 2am.

In 1853, the Halles Baltard were coming from the earth under the leadership of Napoleon III. Today, nothing remains except the last building moved to Nogent-sur-Marne. Even a new project to renovate the district matures Halles, Le Louvre des Antiquaires returns over a century of history. Before our eyes and through many documents, they are Halles iron and glass which are spread over 10 pavilions. In their day, the Halles Baltard are the nerve center of the capital, where strong odors of farms, gardens and tides originate. Until July 31, you can discover the old-fashioned Paris, put into perspective by the new project of renovation of Les Halles. The canopy thinking by architects Patrick Berger and Jacques Anziutti must emerge in 2013.

Possibility to purchase reproductions of photographs on display.
