Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

On the surface, the Champs-Elysées is the preserve of high-end fashion boutiques, awkwardly interspersed with McDonald's and Quicks. But you need only scratch this surface for its cosmopoltan charms to emerge. Nestled inside a converted hôtel particulier near the Arc de Triomphe, the Maison du Danemark is chief among the area's more leftfield attractions. Committed to bringing you the best and wackiest of Danish culture, the centre puts on an embarrassment of exhibitions, conferences, screenings and concerts in its vast, sparsely furnished second-floor gallery. Famished culture vultures can then repair to one of the two restaurants for a bite and a beer. There may not be a library or language course; but then which other centre of its kind in Paris can boast an in-house Bang & Olufsen shop, and justify it on cultural grounds?
