Well, here we are in September and it’s time for our news of the month. The summer is winding down and the holidays are over for most of us, but don’t despair because there’s always a warm welcome for you at the Hotel de la Herse d'Or at any time of the year. Additionally, as Paris assumes the russet hues of her autumn dress she is pleased to present, as ever, an endless source of interest and entertainment, plus business opportunities galore. So why not treat yourself to a little quality time in Paris, where the magic continues all year round?
Contemporary Art, International Stars And Cocoa Magic
Just to prove our point, we at the Hotel de la Herse d'Or are pleased to present our monthly selection of events to bring an added glow to your autumn. Art lovers flock to Paris as the events and galleries here are second to none. You already know about the magnificent collections of the past, located in such superb locations as the Louvre, but Paris always has an eye on coming artistic trends, too, as some major contemporary art fairs scheduled for October will demonstrate.
Our city is also a magnet for the biggest international music stars, who love the prestige of performing here. A great example of this is the Bercy Arena, which this autumn presents an amazing array of global musical talent. Just check out who’s coming to this world class venue in November.
Last but not least, indulge your passion for chocolate at the world’s leading trade show dedicated to cocoa products, the Salon du Chocolat. How can you resist?
An Autumn of Contemporary Art exhibitions in Paris
This autumn will, as always in Paris, see a fascinating flurry of modern and contemporary art shows embracing everything from furniture to installations and paintings to sculpture. Paris has always had her elegant finger firmly on the pulse of the contemporary art scene and October brings further proof, if such were needed. Taking place at the same time to provide the widest possible overview and maximum convenience are the modern and contemporary art fair, Art Elysées and the interior design show, Design Elysées, October 23rd to 27th. Also at this time the FIAC, Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain, is presented at the Grand Palais.
Upcoming live concerts at the Bercy Arena, Paris
The Bercy Arena, Paris, has come to be synonymous with top quality international entertainment and the programme for this autumn certainly helps to reinforce that excellent reputation. November alone features performances by a whole host of internationally renowned stars such as Johnny Hallyday, Kylie Minogue, Linkin Park Stromae, Elton John, Shaka Ponk, Enrique Iglesias, Lenny Kravitz and Lady Gaga. The venue seems to bring out the very best in those who appear here, as demonstrated by the quality of the live albums recorded at the Bercy, such as Depeche Mode’s One Night In Paris.
Experience the ultimate Chocolate Trade Fair
If you love chocolate, or are a professional in the vast industry based around this hugely popular product, then you should not miss the Salon du Chocolat, October 29th until November 2nd, at the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre. This 20th anniversary event promises to be something truly special, and with live demonstrations of the art of the chocolatier, workshops for both kids and adults to try their hands at chocolate recipes and the toe-tapping joys of the Cocoa Show, that promise is certain to be kept. The fashion show featuring chocolate dresses displayed by models must be seen to be believed!
