celebrating black friday in paris

In a very short time, all across the U.S., family and friends will gather together to celebrate that most reverent American holiday- Black Friday. Since Thanksgiving doesn’t exist in France, that means that technically Black Friday doesn’t exist in France either. But if you happen to be in Paris over the Thanksgiving week-end, why not create your own tradition and celebrate Black Friday comme les parisiennes.

Start the evening by inviting your friends around for an all-black apéro: Try your hand at home-made foie gras and truffle “lollipops”, served with a refreshing black cocktail, like Eristoff’s Black Up. Or maybe something sweeter like black licorice macarons from Ladurée with cold flutes of sparkling Piper-Heidsieck Black Cancan by Jean Paul Gaultier.


Next, slap on a fresh coat of YSL Pur Couture Noir and head on over to Dans Le Noir? for dinner. Sure, it’s been around for a while, with locations now open in London, Barcelona and New York, but what better way to spend Black Friday than at the original pitch-black dining experience?   Top the night off  at BC Black Calvados, the branché black and chrome nightclub that’s been a Paris standard since the 1950’s. Not exactly a Paris bargain, but I bet you’ll spend less there than you would’ve at Macy’s Black Friday Sale!
