109 Rue de Bagnolet, 75020
When traveling to Paris begins to resemble visiting a vacation house more than a new city, one starts to wonder what lies beyond the center of the French capital. In Paris's 20th arrondissement, Phillip Starck's Mama Shelter will introduce you to the real Parisian crowd. An avant-garde and highly stylized hotel and restaurant, it will have you wondering why you haven't discovered this part of town sooner. Step out of your comfort zone and explore the Pere Lachaise Cemetery where you will find fans of Jim Morrison flocking toward his monument. Otherwise you can always relax at the rooftop bar and enjoy pizza and weekend DJ sets by local artists.
