Bonsoir Paris: Bonjour City Map-Guides

As portable as a map but as informative as a guide, this hybrid map-guide from dandy globe-trotter Marin Montagut offers curated recommendations for a genuinely local experience. The pocket-sized Bonjour map-guides—made of water-resistant, tear-proof paper—feature rare and soulful places that exude an enviable je ne sais quoi. Start the evening with an aperitif at a wine bar inside a bookstore, get a haircut under the full moon, and find a cocktail bar hidden behind an unremarkable door at the back of a restaurant. Rub shoulders with the Parisian elite, taste the city’s best pot-au-feu after lighting up the dance floor at the capital’s last exclusive club, and watch the sun come up from a hidden mansion in Montmartre.This unique and charming guide from a Parisian arbiter of taste is the best way to experience the City of Lights after dark.

"I’d never found a travel guide that strikes just the right balance between tourist and insider — until I threw Marin Montagut’s “Bonjour Paris” and “Bonsoir Paris” into my carry-on at the last minute before taking a trip there last month. They’re folding, pocket-size compendiums of all of the multimedia artist’s favorite places, organized by neighborhood and pared down to just the most pleasing spots you probably wouldn’t discover otherwise."
