Clubland - Paris, France - Where will you find me?

Clubland Part II

Cercle de l’Union Interalliée




If you do not find me at a little family Bistro on one of Paris back streets - then you will find me at Cercle de l’Union Interalliée- 33 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré or in the evening at The Travellers - Champs-Elysées . 

Shopping - I recommend -  Maison Goyard and Hermés  -  Ladies nothing wrong with beautiful things in life - you deserve it. If you are a bohemian with a touch of elegance or casual continental - you can visit and shop at Arnys so did Jean Cocteau, Le Corbusier and Hemingway.

Do not forget Au Petit Matelot (the green store, figure that one out, Green is the color of...where we come from-we always had it, we grew up like that green, green, green). 

If you like something engraved please visit Maison Agry located between Tuileries and Place Vendome this store will take you back to the old world - they have been the engraver for the French aristocracy since 1825.

One more - Gastine Renette, Gunsmith/Clothing/Accessories If you needed a shooting outfit for the country, this was the store - It would have reminded you of Holland & Holland, London. Unfortunately gone - and so is Sulka.

Where do i stay? Hotels to recommend..not this time. If I live under the canvas in Paris? No, If it is under a mosquito net and a cot in the Tropical Zone or in a hotel at Place de la Concorde in Paris -it is all the same - Is it special? Not necessary - it is all about your outlook on life.  Who brings a cot to Paris? I like nice little places with some character, personality and charm . Yes - I occasionally need some quite time in "Clubland" - you will find me in the library.
