What does spring have in store for you on the Left Bank?
Posted in Paris le 1 May 2023
There truly is a Left Bank spirit. Freer, more intellectual, more creative, it is perceived through its distinctive cultural identity as well as in its exhibitions, fairs, and shops. The Hotel Alizé Grenelle team has put together their recommendations of some of the best things to enjoy on the Left Bank this spring...
Art and shopping
If you’re an art lover, you probably know all about the art galleries and antique dealers of the Carré Rive Gauche. This area, steeped in history, was previously a centre of literary activity but has become, over the past forty years, a vibrant hub for gallery owners. Each year they organise a unique event that is both fun and informative: the Five Days of the Extraordinary Object. This year it runs from June 7th to 11th. But if a classic shopping spree is more your speed, the Bon Marché hosts its Bons Marchés Summer from April 29th to June 18th. Browse stalls that have the feel of summer markets and discover brands full of sunshine.
A touch of magic...
Finally, head to the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre for a unique experience: Harry Potter: the Exhibition. This new type of event has already met with great success across the Atlantic. In addition to displaying a number of props, costumes and reconstructions of scenes from the saga of the boy wizard and Fantastic Beasts, it offers an immersive experience in their magical world. Choose your house and your wand, explore the emblematic places, platform 9 ¾, the cupboard under the stairs, the rooms of Hogwarts, play quidditch, and more. An exhibition to delight the whole family!
The Left Bank loves to play with contrasts. Your Parisian spring will be full of beautiful surprises. Book your stay at the Hotel Alizé Grenelle today.
