Cultural life is in full swing at the Pompidou Centre
Undoubtedly the best museum of contemporary art in Paris, the Pompidou Centre is the epicentre of Parisian cultural and artistic life. Rising majestically in the heart of the city, an exuberant explosion of audacious architecture and multihued conduits, the Pompidou Centre, also known as Beaubourg, offers a wealth of exhibitions for art lovers and other exciting events. As a bonus, the famous restaurant George, installed on its roof, offers a magnificent view of the city.
The Pompidou Centre; the cultural identity of Paris
This summer, the Pompidou Centre offers two fascinating exhibitions that show the diversity of this superb museum complex. First, discover the Union of Modern Artists, a mid-20th century movement founded in France by artists, designers and architects such as Le Corbusier and Jean Prouvé, who wished to make a break with the past and reinvent life. They advocated changing our ways of living and our perceptions of art and beauty, embraced the use of industrial materials and emphasised functionality over ornamentation. Then you can enjoy the abstract, technological and aesthetic audio-visual installations of the Japanese sound artist Ryoji Ikeda. Enjoy your visit to the Pompidou Centre!
The Pompidou Centre; enjoy a cocktail at the George restaurant
Perched at the top of the large, colourful and eye-catching building that is the Pompidou Centre, the George restaurant invites you to sip a cocktail while enjoying a panoramic view of the most beautiful city in the world. Undoubtedly one of the most romantic terraces in the city, the George is the ideal setting for a chic aperitif or candlelit dinner. Then, return to the famous Saint Germain des Prés district, and your room at the Hotel d'Angleterre, with its promise of a sweetly relaxing night after a busy day!
