- Ma Cocotte

Opening this autumn, Philippe Starck's first foray in the celebrated Paul-Bert and Serpette flea market - or Puces de Saint-Ouen - will have vintage hunters, style enthusiasts and meeting planners in search of the place to be seen flocking to discover this urban retreat. The loft-style venue is the epitome of understated cool - think exposed brick walls, mismatched chairs and classic banquettes - suitable for crowds of 300.

- Restaurant Georges

Sitting pretty at the very top of the Centre Pompidou is Georges, a much-beloved haunt of the beautiful and damned. Offering views across the Paris rooftops, hip tunes and inventive cuisine, the restaurant's fashionable vibe is matched by its clientele. Privatisation options are vast and maximum capacity is 800 for cocktails, while the terrace alone can host 190. Smaller groups of up to 50 can dine in the boutique private room.

- L'Atelier Renault

Automotive enthusiasts, piston-heads and general fans of French cars will be impressed with the dining options at L'Atelier Renault Cafe, which opened just last year. The vibrant design is matched by a warm ambience, all with a striking view of the Champs-Elysees, and the menu - like the cars - is pure French.

- Arola

Named after Spanish two-Michelin-starred chef Sergi Arola, the W Paris - Opera's signature restaurant is currently one of the top tables in Paris. Serving tapas and small plates, the menu combines the flavours of Catalan with the gastronomy of France and favourite dishes include suckling pig with truffles and a lime mojito sphere with mint granite.

- Les Collections

Set within the chic Sofitel Paris Le Faubourg, the newly launched Les Collections is a fashion-inspired restaurant paying homage to its home in the stylish Faubourg Saint-Honore district. Inside, the black-and-beige mosaics represent haute couture, while outside the terrace - with its landscaped gardens - can provide an al fresco break. Tokyo-born chef Keigo Kimura gives classic French dishes a modern twist, and specials include pan-seared langoustines with rosemary-flavoured bok choy.
