Something for the Weekend (11th – 13th March)

Le Rubis, un an déjà…
Nearly a year ago I wrote about a new bar that had opened in my district. I liked how the owners had renovated a forgotten 1930s location and noted their frustration about not being able to host live music. Fortunately I was proved wrong, and they have been able to organise regular events, including this Saturday night when they will be celebrating their first anniversary. I wish them many more!

See you there!

Saturday 12th
Le Rubis

140 Rue Saint Maur, M° Goncourt

Ici & Demain
Ici & Demain is a new festival which enables young artists to present their work (music, dance, theatre, plastic arts) in over 20 venues in Paris. It also enables you to experience the work of tomorrow's stars for free!

This weekend, the place to be is the Point éphémère alongside the Canal Saint Martin, but the event will continue at various locations until March 24th.

Romantic Gardens
The Musée de la Vie romantique is the perfect location for an exhibition on the historic romantic gardens of France, especially with Spring on its way! The event focusses on the period between 1770 and 1840, and features Monceau, Méréville, Ermenonville and La Malmaison through paintings, watercolours, drawings and other works of art.

Until July 17th
Musée de la Vie romantique
Hôtel Scheffer-Renan
16 rue Chaptal - 75009 (
M° Saint-Georges, Pigalle, Blanche, Liège)
Everyday from 10am to 6pm, except Mondays and public holidays

A Ballad of Love and Death
(Pre-Raphaelite Photography in Great Britain, 1848-1875)

The aesthetic principles of the Pre-Raphaelite painters are well-known, but less is known about the photographers of the time who aspired to be recognised as artists in their own right. This fascinating exhibition shows how the two worked together and influenced each other.

Until May 29th

Musée d’Orsay
