Our Foodie Recommendations:

We can't expect you to eat with us in Belushi's every night, so we’ve added in a couple of local restaurants we personally recommend. 


  1. Le Bellerive: A charming restaurant located along the Canal de l'Ourcq. Le Bellerive offers a lovely view of the water and serves delectable French dishes, with a focus on seafood. Enjoy a relaxing meal with a delightful waterfront ambiance.

As long as you start and end the night with us we won’t be too picky about where you end up in the middle. 


  1. Le Pavillon des Canaux: A quirky and charming bar located in a former mansion overlooking the Canal de l'Ourcq. Le Pavillon des Canaux offers a whimsical setting with multiple rooms, each decorated in a unique style. It's an Instagram-worthy spot to relax and enjoy a beverage.
