It’s 3PM and the first time you’ve seen the light of day since 6am that morning when you rolled out of the club. You’re still wearing last night’s outfit and pretty sure you’re missing a heel and your dignity, but it doesn’t matter because your legs are looking skinnier than the pommes frites you didn’t eat last night.

As your French pro kisses you au revoir, you throw on your enormous sunglasses and as you pass the liquor store—hair of the dog, anyone?—you grab some vin just in case. Whatevs, rosé is about 8 Euros cheaper than Evian. It's almost like they want you to stay drunk.

You whip out your iPhone to text your besties (TG for global messaging!). Um, wtf was last night? Were midgets and pandas involved?

Bien sûr they were, betch, you’re in Paris.

When deciding how to spend time studying #3 abroad, betches have many options. Do you pull a Kate Moss and go to London? Do you #27 tan all day on a yacht in Barcelona? Or do you go to Paris, a place so betchy that is makes every other city seem as glamorous as Detroit?

Paris is a betchy city for countless reasons but mostly because everyone is so fucking #5 skinny. Like seriously, try being a healthy-sized borderline-ano girl in America and then get on the Paris Metro. Nothing will have you rethinking Laduree more than wondering what diet that blonde Frenchie is on, only to have her turn around and be a dude. If you haven’t lost your appetite yet, please just get off the train and watch the homeless men pee.

Ok, so like, full disclaimer, don’t eat anything in Paris because even though those baguettes look good they’re going straight to your ass. While your BMI might be considered "normal" in the US, in Paris you'll be known as a fat, lazy American girl. Take a hint from the French girls and alternate between smoking cigs and sipping Coke Light.

Oh, and if you’re thinking of going to the gym, bonne chance cause there are like, none.

Let's talk about shopping. Duh there are a lot of museums and cathedrals and shit in Paris to honor the Great Betch in the Sky, but what better museum to fill than your closest, n’est-ce pas?

The shoe department at the Galleries Lafayette is a must-do since it’s basically a betch's paradise. But unless your idea of heaven involves getting manhandled by Asian tourists in headsets, save your real shopping for Le Marais and the Rue Saint-Honoré. [Note to Asians: those headsets make you look like you’re working the drive-through at a BK Tokyo.] Grab yourself a new Goyard at their flagship store on your dad's black Amex, and be sure to scout Zadig and Voltaire for some tres chic new threads.

Which leads us to nightlife. A word to the wise, find a crew of Americans because most French people don’t know the meaning of blacking out. It’s like, if I wanted to drink one glass of wine every two hours I’d go to Bingo Night at my grandparents' in Palm Beach. Fucking duh.


man and woman kissingSo engrossed by the City of Love that she forgot to ask for his salary.


A true betch begins her night at Prescription or Le Bar at Plaza Anthenee, continue to Le Baron or VIP Room, and end at Rasputin. Well, actually, nights should end in some pro’s bed, but that part’s up to you. Also, if you’re not getting bottle service of Magnum Rosé at these clubs, you might as well not bother going, because like…who the fuck are you?

So the next time you’re ordering iced coffee at your local Starbs and find yourself in line behind some hideously dressed whale, get yourself to the airport stat. While the fat and ugly may have the rest of the world, betches, we’ll always have Paris.

    Love Paris and this site but Laduree is not La Duree, it’s Laduree. And Galleries Lafayette is for nice girls, try Paris Fashion week, then calling your stylist/gay best friend to get your orders in. Also, side note, Zadig and Voltaire is gross. Like if I wanted clothes of that quality I would’ve gone to Target or been poor. VIP Room is definitely for French/Arab/Italian guidos who’ve recently moved on from Queen and Buddah Bar to bigger and better things. Not chic.
    But nonetheless Thank You for finally paying homage to the betchiest city on earth. Like literally everything, everywhere, and everyone is fucking gorg. and super skinny. Keys to surviving as an American in Paris: learn french, never eat (duh), and be really rude and bitchy. and the best part about never eating is that 3 glasses of Dom and you’re good for the night.

    This article is a stereotype, well at least for nightlife ! Never get a magnum of rosé at a club, thats ridiculous and it means you’re a tourist, definitely. You should have interviewed a french girl before writting this article grin

    As great as this city is…betches, it sounds like you only watched a movie about the fucking city, have you ever even been?  God, it’s like you’re doing the entire goddamn La Ville-Lumière a disservice by writing this shit.  VIP Room?!  Shame.

    *au revoir

    Otherwise, sort of right. You missed Avenue Montaigne, and this betch, at least, loves Pont des Arts.

    I was in France this summer, and this is so spot on. Literally, I mean here we go out to lunch or get fro yo with our besties, but there it’s completely acceptable to spend three hours in front of a restaurant drinking “Coca Light” and smoking Marlboro Lights.

    L’Arc is where all the celebrities party and where getting a bottle is not enough to be considered a betch. You must get to the VIP area and party with all the sexy French models and celebrities

    it’s coca light not “Coke Light.” Coke light makes you seem like an American wanna-be Parisian who can’t speak French at all but tries and fails. This article typifies how to stand out as an American, which is the exact opposite of what a true betch would do.

    Um, hello betches, no mention of Champs Elysee?? I’m ashamed. The fucking best LV in the world is housed on that street along with a mil other fantastic stores. My last time in Paris, I stayed at the Sofitel Arc de Triomphe so that I could walk a block to this street each “morning.” I can’t believe there was nothing about it…

    No.. no. the french trying to speak english is hilarious. I know plenty of Americans in paris who speak perfect french. And if youre going to make a general statement, you have to throw in, all english speakers. I know plenty of austrailians and english who cant speak french well either. terrible comment of you. No justification… just a ignorant general statement. sad.

    L’Arc is THE club to be at in Paris, lately No Comment has also been getting a lot of attention, Raspoutine is only cool in the winter, VIP room is def no, only places to shop are ave montaigne, rue st honore or le bon marche….saw a comment about LV on the Champs, absolutely not, only for tourist, most french people dont even buy LV, if you want to be chic in Paris, you carry hermes balenciaga YSL or chanel…and american girls, pls learn how to dress yourself, you might know designers, but the difference is the way you assemble yourself…. and why was L’Avenue not mentioned??? that’s about the betchiest place to have lunch or dinner in all of Paris…

    Um all you fuckin betches, who are you? Currently, I am sitting in my apartment in Le Marais laughing at all of your fucking dumb comments.

    1) VIP Room is not cool at all. Agreed. Le Baron is the shit.

    2) Galleries Lafayettes? What are you, Chinese? Only tourists would go anywhere near that crowded clusterfuck shithole, especially during Christmas. Le Bon Marché is where its at. It has no crowds and is a million times more chic.

    3) I go to Sci Po-of which all French Presidents are alumni-and everyone blacks out every weekend so not sure what crowd you are running in.

    4) Baguettes are a daily staple, even for the thinnest. All you do is drink wine for the rest of the day to make up for it though, fucking duh. It’s Paris, everyone eats the food, unless you’re poor.

    Please actually go to Paris betches before you comment.

    Seriously disappointing, only things you got right were raspoutine and MAYBE le marais, avenue montaigne should have absolutely been mentioned unless you’re poor betches who can’t afford it… as for night summer time - bagatelle, or terrazza martini where you can dance with models on a rooftop overlooking the city, winter - cirque. i eat baguette for breakfast every morning and you wish you could be as skinny as me.  you’ve clearly never been to paris, hop on a plane betches.
