|MUSEUM – Hôtel de la Marine|
|Iconic monument located by the Place de la Concorde, the Hôtel de la Marine is a jewel of French architecture which has been created over the XVIIIth Century by Ange-Jacques Gabriel, whom was the King’s Premier Architect. Until 1798, the edifice used to be the Garde Meuble of the Crown, before it became – for over two hundred years – the main office of Ministère de la Marine.
After years of renovation, the Hotel de la Marine can now be visited and presents the relation between decorative art, French Excellence in service, handicrafts, and the expression of power. The architecture and arts furniture are magnificent, and you can also visit the original apartments as they were at the end of XVIIIth century.

|MUSEUM – Bourse du Commerce – Foundation Pinault|
The Bourse de Commerce — Pinault Collection is the latest museum in the network of sites and initiatives developed by François Pinault since 2006. It offers a perspective on the contemporary art collection he has amassed over the past forty years, through a unique programme of exhibitions and events. The collection, an exceptional ensemble of over 10,000 works by almost 400 artists, features paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, audio works, installations, and performances.
The Bourse de Commerce was restored and transformed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Work began in 2017 and was completed in February 2020. The Bourse de Commerce building illustrates four centuries of architectural and technical feats. It associates the first free-standing column in Paris, erected in the 15th century for Catherine de’ Medicis’ palace, with the vestiges of a granary impressive for its circular 18th-century design, which was capped in 1812 with a spectacular metal and glass dome. The building was then modified in 1889 to become the “Paris Stock Exchange”.

|RESTAURANT – Mimosa|
|Starting September, the recently opened Hotel de La Marine will open a restaurant managed by the famous Michelin rated chef Jean-François Piège. The name of the restaurant may remind you the name of a legendary French dish, the famous “Oeufs mimosa”… and it is indeed the idea of the chef: create a mimosa bar in a riviera atmosphere while staying in the center of Paris.
It is a promising gastronomic address and for sure the realization is at the level of the chef and the Moma group talent behind this opening.

|SHOPPING – La Samaritaine|
|After 16 years of being closed, one of the most Parisian “Grand Magasin” reopened its doors at the end of June after years of renovations led by LVMH. Inside the historic building, the only thing that did not change since they closed are the glass roof under which you will find a restaurant and a bar, the long fresco dated 1907 and the masterful stairs. Otherwise, the spirit and offers of La Samaritaine are now more select and refined as they used to be.
The Magasin offers one theme for each floor which ease your shopping (fashion on 1st and 3rd floor ; jewellery on the 2nd floor, shoes on the 4th floor, etc…) From the brands you will find we could mention Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Yves Saint Laurent and many others luxury ones, as well as more accessible ones such as Maje, Sandro…
In addition, for the ones whom are missing the famous concept store “Colette”, you will find a similar boutique in La Samaritaine called “La Boutique de Loulou” and offering books, decoration, accessories… Finally, after shopping you may also enjoy a “beauty moment” with the SPA “Cinq Mondes” and the make up bar.
Fun fact : have a look to the two different facades. The one facing the Seine is historical and kept its Art Deco spirit, while the one facing Rue de Rivoli is truly modern and contemporary.
