The idea of Paris as a Sleeping Beauty lacking the dynamic of London, Amsterdam or Barcelona is no longer valid. Even in the traditionally deserted month of August there was a lot going on. Off the beaten track is where the action is: the North East from the top of the Marais all the way to the Peripherique. Concept Store Merci remains a hotspot with new eateries and cafés popping up all around. Lots of artsy activity around the Carreau du Temple with an amalgam of new gourmet entrepreneurs testing out new business models about sustainability, wellness and artisanal discovery.
