TRIED & TESTED: MA COCOTTE PARIS

October 15th, 2012

macocotteparis

Update June 2013. During my last trip to Paris I went to Ma Cocotte again and visited the new Habitat Vintage site across the street. This time the bar at the first floor was finished, so I love to show you around.

Most striking feature:

Brand new restaurant of Philippe Starck in Saint-Ouen. It just opened it’s doors last week and I’m happy to show you around. One thing is for sure: Starck doesn’t choose for the obvious area’s like le Marais or upcoming Canal Saint Martin. Mamashelter is located in the 20e arrondissement and Saint-Ouen is an area on the other side of the Peripherique. Famous for it’s flea markets, Saint-Ouen is a lovely place to be if you like antiques and vintage home decor. At le Marche de Paul Bert you will find Ma Cocotte. A stunning restaurant where you’re welcome during the whole day. From a cup of coffee in the morning till late night dinner.

Starck did not only take care of the interior, but he designed the exterior as well. Think: huge windows overlooking the market. Inside there’s the perfect chaos Starck is known for. You see a little bit of the Mamashelter coming through (like the long wooden table in front of the kitchen), but in here the atmosphere is more lovey-dovey. No Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: MAMASHELTER MARSEILLE

August 20th, 2012

Most striking feature:

The outdoor patio? The spacious rooms? The pink football table in the restaurant? There’s too much to discover in this newly (April 2012) opened Mamashelter. I’ve been to the first one in Paris and for those of you who’ve been there you already know that’s it somewhat outside the center. That’s also the case here in Marseille. They do it so the visitors can easily mix with a typical neighbourhood – not the area’s full of tourists. The hotel staff did come up with a guide of Marseille and they are happy to point you to restaurants or bars around the hotel. And there’s a lot to discover, but you have to understand that the hotel isn’t a place to leave quickly. The restaurant attracts a lot of locals so it’s really the place to hang out at night. They have alcohol-free cocktails named Ol’ Dirty Bastard or De La Soul (ofcourse also cocktails with alcohol in it) and outside there’s a pastis bar (I didn’t know the roots of that France liqueur lie in Marseille).

Okay you probably want to know how this hotel differs from the one in Paris? Read more…
