CITY ASTIR – PARIS

CLOWN BAR

GO HERE: to experience contemporary French cooking by a Japanese chef in a beautiful room covered with 19th-century murals of clowns. (The Cirque d’Hiver is nearby; this was the clown hang.) Even the ham-and-cheese plate is an intensely sourced work of art.

THE VIBE IS: a comfortably casual mix of off-duty chefs, well-fed multigenerational families, and natural-wine enthusiasts of all ages.

FASHION ASTIR – AFTER DARK

ROCK’N’ROLL GLAMOUR

There’s something about a look that disregards gender that makes it especially effortless and for this very reason, the tux continues to remain a major player in just about any after-dark edit. Imagined in velvet and styled with rock’n’roll flair (all-black accessories and artfully dishevelled hair) it’s clear to see that this is suiting that’s been made with midnight in mind.
