REPETTO REDUX: Wishing for access to Repetto’s exclusive shoes without having to elbow through crowds of ballerinas? Maison Clarté has installed an exclusive Repetto showroom in its Marais boutique offering just that. The elegant space, designed by Philippe Virly, boasts select Repetto models for men and for women, including limited editions like the zip-front ballerina and the studded Jackson Jazz shoe. All of the store’s antique furniture and mirrors are also for sale.

PARIS BLITZ: What’s the link between tequila, drag queens and yodeling? All three can be found at the Blitz Bar, a temporary nightspot nestled in the former digs of Black Calavados (BC). Order a bottle of Blitz tequila and settle into one of the comfy black leather sofas or knock back a margarita at the bar to a soundtrack ranging from Grace Jones to Eighties German pop. On Thursday nights, waiters are dressed in lederhosen and joined by cross-dressing hostess Mademoiselle Blitz.
