Think fashion, you think Paris. The city that brought us Coco Chanel’s camelia, Yves Saint Laurent’s le smoking and le beret more than caters for its stylish disciples with beautiful hotels, chic eateries and designers galore. But where are the beautiful people partying these days? La Montana, darling – the 60s hotspot hits back with a fabulous, if slightly limp-wristed punch.

Resuscitated in time for spring Fashion Week in 2009 by nightlife impresario André Saraiva of Le Baron and Purple mag editor Olivier Zahm, it has since hosted parties for the likes of Diane Von Furstenberg and sees celebs and models among its regulars. It’s not a massive space (alright, it's absolutely tiny), but what there is has been intricately designed with graphic, chalky sketches on black walls, and its location right next to the iconic (and correspondingly overpriced) Café de Flore makes it a prime spot for the it kids to try and join the likes of Lagerfeld and Castelbajac inside.
