Alain Ducasse sur Seine: fine dinner date on the boat
The most beautiful view of Paris is not from the Eiffel Tower or even the hills of Montmartre, but from the river. Especially if you are served delicious food and the most exquisite champagne. The master of French cuisine has opened his floating restaurant boat several years ago. Not many tourists know about it, not all Paris travel guides include it, except for the gourmet part of them. Experience the ultimate romance on your Parisienne date, with a break for drinking and kissing and gazing around.
Monarchist dinner at Apicius: wine dinner date in a chateaux
Some girls do like to feel like princesses, especially when they're in Paris. The restaurant with the eloquent name Apicius can provide just the opportunity. Located in a former château nearby the Champs-Élysées, it's awarded one Michelin star. Incredible cuisine, unique atmosphere, and quite literally dangerous wine list. Seems that the length of the wine list is the biggest danger on a date in Paris. Prices are above average, but the experience is priceless.
The Centre de Danse du Marais: dance date in a courtyard
How about dancing on a date in Paris? The Centre de Danse du Marais is an authentic dance studio in a very Parisian courtyard where professionals teach and passionate lovers learn. From ballet to Tango, from individual to the group. Don’t worry, you’ll find classes in English too. And right across the street is a great restaurant by one of the best chefs in the world, according to the 50 World Best — Mauro Colagreco. Much more accessible than Mirazur, on the Côte d'Azur, surrounded by pointe shoes and the sound of the piano. Combine dancing and dining — that date idea is perfect for Paris.
Madame Sensuelle Lingerie Boutique: sex date in Paris
Our little gem, the very sexy date idea with no sex involved just yet. Madame Sensuelle Lingerie Boutique in St. Germain is not just a lace store, but a real conceptual world of pleasure. On the surface, nothing special, but on the -1 floor, you will find a secret room with more revealing outfits, colorful accessories, and a whole vault of toys for him and for her. You can make a whole spectacle out of buying costumes for the evening to come. Try on as much (or as little) lace as you can — and see where that date will take you. Aroused and sexy in Paris? Think sex hotels… Or a sexy hotel.
The Maison Souquet: sexy hotel date
This hotel with a bar is located next to the Pigalle subway station for a reason. It used to be a brothel, but today it's a hotel and a bar. Why not have a glass of champagne, or rather spend the evening (night?) exploring the establishment's cocktails. Maybe then you'll find a reason to go up to the room or do some role-playing, too. Before or after, it depends on your luck. We love this place so much that we almost didn't want to include it in our travel dating guide to Paris. Get your date ready and have an incredible hotel date. Thank us later.
Hotel Amour: cinematic sex date in Paris
It is a cuter but no less passionate version of the previous establishment. The brothels were across the street from each other, but they filmed "Love Lasts Three Years", by Beigbeder in this one. Inside is a charming patio, restaurant, and bar. The rooms have a mirror on the ceiling to really broaden your horizons in bed. Do spend your time wisely. Do spend it underneath this mirror. Bisous.
