Welcome to Cool Stuff in Paris, a directory of my favorite cool things to do in Paris: weird museums and unusual sights, amazing restaurants, cool bars and cafés, practical info for tourists, bizarre public art, creepy cemeteries, and much much more.
I haven't been back to Paris in well over a year, sadly! As I write this (May 2021) I'm sure a lot of the places featured on this site are closed, either temporarily or permanently. If you're in Paris, I urge you to reach out to museums/restaurants/etc directly to see if they're open before planning your trip. Please research and respect any restrictions that are in place.
Check out my recent articles about the catacombs, le Musée des Arts Forains, the Eiffel Tower, Space Invader pixel art mosaics and other grafitti, the Louvre, etc. I believe Paris truly is the most amazing city in the world; I love the cuisine, the history, the shopping, and the people. There's a rhythm and a richness to life here that's really incredibly agreeable. Nothing makes me happier than sharing what I love about Paris with people who are visiting, so please enjoy this site, and please contact me if you have any questions!
