What to do for Valentine's Day in Paris?

Whether as a couple, on your own, or with your BFFs, Valentine's Day weekend 2021 is bound to be a bit unusual. This year, it’s all about enjoying each other's company and celebrating some (socially-distanced!) time with the ones we love. Because even in these strange times, Paris still has plenty of surprises in store!


1. Lounge in bed with Lazy Brunch

Ever considered having brunch delivered? Our favourite Parisian brunch comes from Lazy Brunch, cooked by Juliette with amour… What better way to start a rainy Sunday in bed?

2. Take a stroll around Montmartre

For those that are happy to brave the cold, why not channel your inner Amélie Poulain and enjoy some fresh air in an iconic romantic setting? Immortalise this Valentine's Day 2021 by strolling along Avenue Junot and admiring the bust of Dalida, before climbing up to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica to enjoy the last rays of the sun (before the curfew kicks in, obviously).

3. Enjoy a drink at Les Coco's

What would Paris be without its bars and terraces? Admittedly, the current situation means we can't make the most of the outdoor seating areas, but Parisians always seem to manage to overcome the obstacles that get in their way. Especially when it comes to having a drink.

4. Get your culture fix at Galerie Perrotin

As we've just mentioned, Parisians have a real gift for getting around the obstacles that stand in their way. No museums? No problem! Savvy Parisians are turning to the capital's countless open-air galleries. Take the time to visit Galerie Perrotin, in Paris's 3rd arrondissement. This fascinating contemporary art gallery will take you from Seoul to Tokyo, via Shanghai and New York. It's everything we need right now.

5. Hunt for treasures at the Vintage Market at the Rotonde de Stalingrad

An unmissable destination for vintage fans: head for a stroll in the heart of La Rotonde de Stalingrad to find vinyl records, floral shirts and other vintage gems. And to finish the day in style, enjoy a top-class DJ set - it's been a long time since we've tapped our foot to a beat.
