Secret Stories now available on Soul.City !

Since Soul.City launched on the Apple App Store earlier this year, our team has made a priority of adding pertinent content and itineraries in our different “feelings” categories over the three cities we are now deployed in: Montréal, Strasbourg, and Paris.  We have also met with professionals in the tourism industry, who have voiced their wish to have customized itineraries for their own customers… and that got us thinking!

Our creative team imagined a new and unique feature… Secret Stories!  This new feature will be available in just a few days in the updated version of the Soul.City app, and will mark our last major innovation before we launch the much anticipated Android version !

So, what exactly are the Secret Stories?

Entirely customizable itineraries dedicated to the tourism professionals who wish to enhance their customers’ experience in the city they are in… anywhere in the world!  You are a hotel concierge or tourism provider of any kind and wish to help your customers experience a truly local and personalized experience?  We’ve created Secret Stories just for you !

Montréal:  Intelligent Community of the Year!

In April a small group of leading business people was invited by the City of Montréal for a cocktail evening in the offices of BMO to meet Mr. Robert Bell, executive director and co-founder of the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF).  Mr. Bell was in town to judge the seven finalists for Intelligent Community of the Year, which Montréal had the privilege to be part of.

26041276323_91191e4f02_zThe Montreal team, headed by Harout Chitilian, made a strong impression on the judge.

Soul.City was invited to the small gathering, and I got the chance to discuss with the judge about our city discovery app.

Great news:  On June 17th at a gala event in Columbus, Ohio, Montréal won the prize title!

Here at Soul.City we’re proud to be a small part of the success of our vibrant and entrepreneurial city in this competition!

Cheers!

A Tiger in Paris

 

Sometimes a magic operates in Paris.  Such a night happened when I walked into a restaurant near my apartment and started chatting with a couple of fabulous Parisians, who would become fast friends.

After an incredible meal and even better talk, Annabelle and Cédric mentioned that I had to have a cocktail at Tiger, one of the best bars in town.  So off we Uber-ed to the 6e arrondissement on rue Princesse, also named“street of the thirsty” by locals (you figure out why).

My “Breakfast Paris”, a cosmo type of drink, arrived with toast and jam!

We made our way to the bar where mixologist Toni recognized my local friends and
went about mixing some of the most spectacular cocktails I’ve ever tasted.

Here gin is the specialty, but everything you order is simply unique.

Toni was busy making a drink from a – literally – smoking teapot!

If you find yourself in Paris and want to taste some of the best cocktails in the world, Tiger must be at the top of your list.

Cheers!

Fondation Café : (possibly) the best coffee in Paris!

unnamed-1Living and working in Paris for a month, I discovered a few steps away from my apartment in the Marais what is possibly the best coffee in all of Paris!

Waking up in the morning I take the Passage Sainte-Élisabeth, a green alleyway behind a church which opens onto rue Dupetit-Thouars.  Fondation Café nests in a closet-sized space, and yet roasts my café-crème to absolute perfection!

A few tables are laid outside, allowing an immersion into the daily lives of my Parisian neighbours.

Crossing to a world of delights: Le Pont de Yunnan

Paris is certainly the mecca of excellent food, but sometimes the best culinary experiences are found when one is willing to step outside familiar paths.

Such a delightful meal was found that way, at a very small, almost shady restaurant in the ethnic part of the 9e arrondissement in Paris. Coming out of metro station Saint-Georges, my senses were already awaken
by various foreign savoury smells.  Walking downhill on Rue Notre Dame de Lorette, my friend Michael had promised a revelatory experience at Le Pont de Yunnan, and delivered exactly so.

Feeling Artsy : Carré d’artistes

A few years back while strolling in the artsy district of Montmartre in Paris, I stumbled upon a unique art gallery, Carré d’artistes, of which I would become a lifetime fan and patron.

The concept iIMG_4198s simple:  affordable yet original creations by local artists, all sold in a square format at fixed prices.  One may acquire a small painting for the modest sum of 75 Euros, the larger pieces going for higher prices.

Several artists offer their work in different square sizes.  The result is a modern art gallery offering
original work by emerging artists, at affordable prices.  What’s not to love?

Better yet, the concept exists in many cities worldwide, including Paris and Montréal.
