Our story

We thought up this project during a typical Parisian apéro on a cold winter’s day. You know how they say there is the right moment? That’s what it was for us. We met at the cross-roads of our want’s and should’s, with a common desire to share our world and inspiration.
We don’t pretend to be experts in what we write about because inspiration shouldn’t be studied. What we publish is our personal opinion. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with us, we love feedback!
We set ourselves an ambition of bringing this project to life by organising thematic events.
Stay tuned for announcements, we hope to meet you there!

Why Apéro à Paris: There is just one thing that is difficult in Paris: making a choice. What to see, where to go, what to do. I choose to embrace the city’s unique diversity, which teaches me something new every day. This is one of the many reasons of why I joined Apéro – to share what I get and who I become through living in Paris.

Apéro à Paris – an inspiration bureau from the heart of the French capital.

Sharing all that makes our hearts go BOOM. #aperoloving
