Paris Scene: Places to Eat, Drink and Play Off-Hours

UPSCALE INDUSTRIAL: Balenciaga’s new Avenue Montaigne boutique features warehouse conveyor rails, industrial lighting and velvet benches set against traces of the past, including a crumbled chimney space and ornate molding. The store also displays artwork by Mark Jenkins. With the new factory look on the high-end avenue also comes a new service for the label: Customers can pick up purchases in the store that they pre-ordered on the brand’s web site. — Mimosa Spencer

HOME AWAY FROM HOME: Specializing in Mediterranean-inspired dishes using seasonal ingredients, this 170-seater brasserie located inside the Palais de Tokyo, which replaces Tokyo Eat, is the latest brainchild of Quixotic Projects. (The group behind hipster Parisian eateries including Candelaria, Le Mary Celeste, Hero and Glass.)
Helming the stove is Preston Miller, while dishes can be washed down with mostly natural wines, artisanal cocktails and local beers. Conceived by Lina Ghotmeh, the site’s eco-friendly design has a raw edge. — Katya Foreman
