A revolution in the hotel industry, the Mama Shelter is an urban hut on a human scale (172 rooms). A collective dream that the Trigano family (Serge, Benjamin, Jérémie), Cyril Aouizerate and Philippe Starck brought to reality and in which they invented the code for a new way of living. In a thriving heart of the eastern part of the city, you can eat dishes created by Alain Senderens, or come for Sunday brunch.
Opened in October 2012, Étoile Lilas is the rst cinema complex to open in Paris in almost ten years. Seven screens and 1,500 seats the com- plex was designed by Hardel & Le Bihan and is in contrast with the multiplexes that have opened outside the city. A vertical expression that is in physical and visual harmony with its environ- ment, the 20 m high superstructure is a 4 800 sqm jet-black box.
Founded in September 2011 and still over booked, the table of Alice Di Cagno (ex-Arpège in Paris) and Victor Gaillard (ex-Spoon in Paris and London) revives the instatiable appetites of Menilmontant’s gavroches. In an almost clinical environment, although somewhat warmed by the old stone walls, the 22 covers get to sample an authentic web of culinary charms.

Nicolas Lanno continues his exploration of the object with the opening of a “Pocket Gallery” (by appointment only), so as to be able to show the objects, small furniture and lighting that are produced under Claire Escalon’s artistic direction. The small workshop that juxtaposes the gallery can be used to make some items and to warrant the label “Made in the twentieth district of Paris” that goes alongside that of O.F.F. for Organic French Furniture.
