Midnight in Paris Le Meridien Etoile

I wish this was similar to the woody Allen film and that we spent our evening hanging out with Hemingway and Cole porter but instead we did something rather Parisian and enjoyed alfresco dining whilst the rain came down. 

We came across Le Dome as we were hopeless trying to flag down a cab, definitely one of my favorite discoveries of our time in Paris.The Cafe itself is situated on the Boulevard du Montparnasse. The waiters were delightful and they gave us popcorn on our table while we took the time to choose our meals. I had my first Porn star cocktail and revealed in the conversation that was flowing.

 I always love it when you immerse yourself in the life of the city or place you are traveling. I loved this little Cafe that had a very warming feel. Inside the bustling cafe people chatted enjoyed the drink and food merrily the atmosphere I think where ever you're eating is important. I sat and drew the locals whilst Amber and Christina tucked into wedges of Brie and chunky piece of baguettes. There was so much to take in and the people were forever moving and chatting was perfect for working on life drawings. 

Are there any hidden gems you've discovered whilst traveling?



  1. So cute, I love finding hidden gems in big cities xx

  2. I totally agree about immersing yourself in the city while you're traveling. You just have to get every bit while you're there. :]
