Le Patio Restaurant @Hotel Prince de Galles | Parisian Hotspot

Hotel Prince de Galles Patio Restaurant Paris

Book a Table

A few months ago, we featured the reopening of Parisian palace Prince de Galles (a Starwood Hotel): an actual haven of peace just nearby noisy and congested Avenue des Champs Elysées. We then had the chance to go and have lunch at the Le Patio restaurant (see the pic above)… You cannot dream of a more peaceful place to have a nice brunch/lunch on a sunny Sunday! The staff always extends a warm welcome and the food is amazing: I particularly remember that amazing sea bream accompanied with some revisited mac&cheese (see below)… A real deliciousness!! I highly recommend you take your girlfriend there for lunch or even for a drink (great choice of wines by glass)…

If you are going to the casino for the first time, you’re only experience of what to wear might be what you’ve seen in films: feather boas, sequinned gowns and tuxedos! In reality, you don’t have to rush out to find a feather boa just yet, here are a few tips to help you decide! The dress code will differ depending on what casino you are attending and which part of the world you are in. This might not be stated on the website, so you will need to do a little research on the type of clientele that normally attend. If you are in Las Vegas for example, most people tend to be quite casual (or very very casual from my own experience…) in the casinos as the casino goers come from all walks of life and are there for a wild holiday. Vegas is a city of excess so you will find you will get away with a lot of things that you wouldn’t get away with elsewhere. It also very hot in Vegas as it is out in the desert and as a result, the casinos do let you attend in shorts etc., which you will not find in many casino’s around the world however.

Introducing Raised by Wolves

I’ve had my eyes on Raised by Wolves for quite a long time now but figured I never wrote about the promising label. I remember starring at a crazy leather jacket with the “Raised by Wolves” tag sewn on the back. Although not revolutionary, the skate-culture inspired label loves dogs as much as we do and makes some pretty badass sweaters… That’s all we need.
