Running perpendicular to the Seine, this modern and contemporary art gallery offers wow views of the Eiffel Tower...

Palais de Tokyo, Paris

With jaw dropping views of the Seine and Eiffel Tower, cool installation art and an uber chic restaurant, Monsieur Bleu: Palais de Tokyo is always a fun place to visit. A hip alternative to the sometimes stuffy array of Paris galleries (and gentile neighbouring 16th arrondissement), it’s avant guard and attracts the fashion elite- from Chanel, who recently threw a party there, to Christian Louboutin who’s previously said he was inspired to specialize in stilettos whilst browsing a Palais exhibit.
