LE BHV MARAIS welcomes INDEPENDENCE DAY
From 24th June through to 4th July 2015, LE BHV MARAIS will celebrate Independence Day in tribute to the young independent nation and culture of the United States. Not just to the great delight of our international customers, but Parisians too.
To celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence on 4th July 1776 in style, fabulous surprises await you from a selection of beauty, fashion and household brands, as well as cooking workshops in English and other VIP activities…
Fabulous prizes to be won
The brands at Paris’s favourite department store have outdone themselves in ingenuity as they invite American citizens to take advantage of exceptional offers from amongst a selection of beauty, fashion and household items from such leading names as Guerlain, Estée Lauder, Burberry, Sandro and Yves Delorme. There’s something to suit everyone’s tastes!
VIP access to the Perchoir Marais from 24th June through to 4th July
The sun is shining and the Perchoir Marais is back. Located on LE BHV MARAIS rooftop, the trendiest terrace bar in the capital is back with a new look to celebrate the season. Everyday, the first 20 American citizens to present their passports* at LE BHV MARAIS Welcome Desk will win VIP access to the terrace from 4 to 5 pm. For a full hour, the luckiest winners will be able to enjoy a unique panorama overlooking the rooftops of Paris. What else?
* Or a membership card from the American Club of Paris, the American Women’s group in Paris or the AAWE.
INDEPENDENCE DAY at LE BHV MARAIS will also rhyme with all sorts of tasty treats. Throughout the week, cooking classes will showcase French and Anglo-Saxon pastries, just what it takes to tantalise everyone’s taste buds! Don’t wait, sign up now!
- Marlette, « Cooking Workshop » (from 26th to 30th June, 12.00pm to 7.00pm): 3rd floor of the store
Specialising inorganic and gourmet preparations for baking breads, cakes and pastries, Marlette moves into LE BHV MARAIS with a workshop focusing on summer and the American pysche. On the programme: demonstrations in English on preparing Carrot Cake, Cookies and Muffins. Not to mention the great classics, such as chocolate fondant, gluten-free fondant, financiers and others that will be showcased in the bilingual classes. And, to top things off, cereal bars and rapadura cake will add a summery note to these workshops.
- Unik and Paris Gastronomie – Cuisine Le Labo Gourmand (Sunday 28th June and Monday 29th June, from 11.00am to 7.00pm): 3rd floor of the store
Renowned for its pop-up restaurant concept, Unik transforms an unusual venue in Paris into a gourmet experience space one evening every month. The restaurant will showcase its craftsmanship and savoir-faire for brunch during this special week at LE BHV MARAIS. The Parisian’s favourite Anglo-Saxon meal will take on new life with puff pastries, smoothies and fresh fruit juices concocted specially for attendees. Guests will also be invited to lend a hand during events relating to the next pop-up restaurant planned for July.
Organised especially for the occasion, a contest will allow two participants to win a free brunch. The idea is simple: participants will be asked to dress a plate and share a picture of their creation on LE BHV MARAIS social networks (on Facebook with the hashtag #leBHVmarais). The more likes and shares they get, the better their chances of winning.
In tribute to American literature
On the second floor of the store, the LE BHV MARAIS book department will feature works from leading American authors. A wide selection of titles will also be on offer in English for all to enjoy.
