If there is one spot in Paris that translates Exquisite Elegance, it would be the area shaped as a triangle; the Pont Alexandre III at a corner, the Petit Palais on one side and the Grand Palais on the other side of this upside down isosceles triangle.
Le Petit Palais is a masterpiece of beautiful classic and balanced proportions.
Le Grand Palais , a chef d’oeuvre. The structure was built in the style of Beaux-Arts architecture as taught by the École des Beaux-Arts of Paris.
… and littérature : “Le Petit Prince” and his allumeur de réverbère.
Across from the Grand Palais, you’ll see this little private mansion which is one of the most renown gastronomic institutions in Paris today, Lasserre.
Moving on to my all time favorite bridge, Le Pont Alexandre III.
Lastly, upon my son’s visit, I found out that one of the “it” clubs in Paris was located under the bridge, Showcase . This vast venue, in converted boat hangars below Pont Alexandre III, is where music-crazed insomniacs come on weekends to discover up-and-coming bands and dance until daybreak.
However, my preference goes towards the MiniPalais Bar Lounge, an exquisite place to sip a drink with an outstanding view on this golden triangle.
It is commonly said here:” Les goûts et les couleurs, ne se discutent pas.”
