-Forget your purse and bring your credit cards when you visit the Gérard Darel outlet, which is rue du sentier not far from Etienne Marcel. You’ll thank us later!

2. “Girls just want to have fun” at the Carmen
Located in the trendy SoPi (south of Pigalle) area, right behind Saint Lazare – The Carmen was a private mansion. After some efforts it is now into a trendy bar with a 19th century feel. Definitely the place to see and be seen, with some of the best cocktails in town! A must have accessory on a girl’s hand.
3. Pure bliss at the OKari Spa
No wonder Parisians say it’s the best hamman in Paris! OKari is by far the best place to unleash pressure and embrace quality time with your friends. It’s right in the heart of a private mansion, 22 rue Dussoubs at Etienne Marcel. The Spa offers a wide range of services, massages, and products. We couldn’t try them all, but we highly recommend the honey facial mask and the hot stones massage with essential oils. Always call ahead to make a reservation.
4. A healthy Brunch at the Umami Matcha Café
Don’t skip lunch and stop by the Umami Matcha Cafe which is in the Marais. Take an hour or two to welcome the”It beverage” of the season: The Matcha. Embrace the many benefits of this finely milled green tea powder imported from Japan. Indulge with an antioxidant Imperial Matcha Tea. And follow up with a veggie brunch served with home-made Yuzu Marmelade, a matcha smoothie bowl, home-made tofu and sesame rice crackers.
5. Le Marché des Enfants Rouges will turn all your bud tastes on
Le marché des Enfants Rouges, which is rue de Bretagne in the Marais, is the prettiest of all the markets, at least in Paris. You will find eclectic products and wonderful food stalls. We compiled the ultimate guide of the marché des Enfants Rouges. Forget your “no pasta diet” at the Italian caterer stall or pick the Lebanese stall which brings the orient directly to your palate. All you need to do is pick your flavour of the day and find a seat. Bring a shopping cart to fill in on all those Bio veggies and goodies. It will definitely inspire you to put on your chef hat.
6. Set the night on fire at the Prescription Cocktail Club
The Prescription Cocktail club is one of Paris well kept secret. Their entrance is almost impossible to find, but they are on the Rue Mazarine #23, not far from the Saint-Germain-des-Prés subway stop. It is one of the hottest cocktail bars in town. Their house cocktails deserve rare reviews. This two-floor, enchanted lounge-y-space is filled with fashionable people and is the perfect address to celebrate your Girls only week-end in Paris.
7. You can always pretend you are Carrie from « Sex & the City » at the Yeeels
The Yeels is the latest addition to the heart of the golden triangle in Paris. Picture the scene, as you walk in with your 5 inch Louboutin stilettos, some electro lounge music playing in the background, at the bar, located in the middle of the room, a tall handsome barman is handing you a glass of champagne he has delicately hand-picked for you. Final cut.
