Read on for our guide to the week's coolest events and most interesting venues. If you manage to tick off all ten, head back to our home page for daily updates on the best restaurants, cultural events, nightlife, and whatever else Paris manages to think up before our next Hot List is published on Monday. 

The best things to see and do in Paris this week

Record sale • Disquaire Day

Launched in Paris in 2011, Disquaire Day (the Parisian version of Record Store Day) was an instant success – by 2012, the participants numbered 176 record stores and 150 artists. The idea is simple: celebrate the independent music scene with new and limited edition releases from underground acts, plus a hefty helping of gigs and events. The best day of the year to go for a browse and discover new music in Paris...

Restaurant • Le Triangle

This micro-brasserie and restaurant specialises in matching its drinks to its dishes, with a twist – here it’s all about beer rather than wine. Stouts, ales and trappist beers are available as well as craft beers from Belgium, Italy, England and Germany and in-house beer by a Canadian brewer – all matched with the kitchen’s clever small plates. We tried homemade chips with a cream sauce (€3.50) complemented by an organic lemonade and a pint of Italian Tripel beer...

Exhibition • Harry Potter: L'exposition

It’s broomsticks, bludgers and Bertie Botts beans galore as the Harry Potter exhibition arrives in Paris. Showing at Luc Besson’s film studio complex La Cité du Cinéma, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey through Harry, Hermione and Ron’s action-packed years at Hogwarts with a selection of original costumes, sets and props used in the Warner Bros films. The exhibition starts out interactive and immersive...

La Cité du Cinéma Until Sunday September 6 2015

Exhibition • Aardman: l'art qui prend forme

This exhibition at Paris’s Art Ludique museum gives us a glimpse into the workings of the studio that has given the world ‘Wallace and Gromit’, ‘Chicken Run’ and ‘Shaun the Sheep’. Run by Peter Lord, David Sproxton and Nick Park, Aardman Animations has created a parade of innovative and imaginative animated characters since 1972. This exhibition shows how the studio works...

Art Ludique - Le Musée Until Sunday August 30 2015

Film • The Water Diviner

You know him as a surly lunk of slab-faced Aussie manhood. But Russell Crowe shows his squishy side as the director of this soft-hearted war melodrama. He also stars as Connor, a farmer whose three sons are missing presumed dead on the WWI battlefield of Gallipoli. Coming on like Liam Neeson without the leather jacket, four years later he travels to Turkey, dad-on-a-mission style, to bring home the bodies of his boys. Once there, he encounters the obligatory sneering British officer...

Tapas • Chez Rosette

Chez Rosette is a classy, cosy tapas bar in the 10th arrondissement. The candle-lit living room sports petrol blue walls, dark furniture, wooden lampshades, cacti and photography prints. The bar serves cocktails, pints (€6) and bottles of wine (€20-€35) as well as tapas (€5) and big mixed platters (€17). In the back room, wicker chairs, a chest of drawers and a large decorated mirror create a homely ambiance...

Outdoors • Paris’s best parks and gardens

For a 105km2 city crammed inside a ring road (la péripherique), Paris has rather a lot of parks. Pack a picnic, take a leisurely stroll, or park yourself on a shaded bench somewhere on this list. If you fancy getting sporty, head to one of the city's 'bois' – former royal hunting grounds, just beyond today's centre, where the verdant expanses provide endless boating, walking and cycling opportunities...

Bar • La Cave de l'Entracte

This no-frills bar in the 10th is the perfect place to grab a casual pint with friends. The ambiance is friendly and the venue’s calendar is full of surprises: the bar might be screening a film one day, and hosting a debate or art exhibit the next. The cave space is charming, but gets packed quickly in the evenings. La Cave de l’Entracte is a popular spot with locals and it’s not just down to the great buzz: drinks prices beat those of other bistros in the area, with a spicy house cocktail...

Shopping • Bleu comme gris

This fashionable boutique is full of teddy bears and drawings, and specialises in clothes for boys and girls aged 0 to 12. Expect chic cuts and great material, whether you’re looking for everyday gear or something for a special occasion. Match your kid’s style with pieces from the adult collection: elegant pastels, casual t-shirts (€35) or even a shimmering golden skirt (€70).

Do not even think about visitng Georges the restuarnat at the Pompidou. Lots of ridiculous looking waiters whose brains are somewhere else. 

we had the worst service, terrible food at overinflated prices. . when we told the matire d that our waiter was not bringing food or wine as ordered he started to argue with us. Scallops---36 euro were six frozen scallops cooked with no seasoning and no vegetables and a bowl of undercooked rice..Cod was a greasy mess of something tasting like fish. .... Avoid at all costs

Üt, by R-Bag : Brilliant clown show every Thursday, Friday, Saturday night at tiny Théâtre Clavel, metro station Pyrénées. Excellent music, laughs for everyone, for kids, for grownups, and most importantly even for people without a word of French. Buy a ticket or pay upon liking, on your way out! Until Dec. 29th.
