Dine with One of the World's Most Famous Hosts

Guided by Jim H.

About this activity
Hi, I’m Jim. Let me tell you my stories. I’m a writer, journalist, host and lover of life. I’ve hosted dinner parties (mostly every Sunday) in Paris for over 30 years. I was big in the 1960s on the alternative / counter-culture scene. I’ve met people from all over the world. Some famous, some not so famous. I met Yoko Ono before she met John Lennon. I met John Lennon before he met Yoko Ono. In London, my landlady was George Orwell’s widow, I host dinner parties to pay my rent - with faces like Francis Bacon, Mary McCarthy attending. I’m all about good food and drink. So, come along and let's bask in the revelry!

I was born in Haynesville in Claiborne Parish in far northern Louisiana. I was a former figure in the British "underground" and alternative/counter-culture scene of the 1960s involved with the founding of Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre, the paper International Times and the London Arts Lab in Drury Lane for experimental and mixed media work.

Reviews about Jim H.

Dine with One of the World's Most Famous Hosts
I've lived in Paris and wanted to try a nez experience. Jim is wonderful, he has something that makes this place and those events special, it's so easy for him to make us feel comfortable and not be afraid to talk with other people since everyone that's here is always friendly and open-minded. Plus the food and place were great. I recommend the experience and Would most probably come back again some time!

The food was not as good as you could expect, it was tasty, but..., but the experience was awesome!! Jim was a good host, and it was very interesting to meet people from all around the world! It was absolutely worth every cent I paid for the dinner. If I ever come back to Paris, I'll absolutely do it again =D Thank you Jim!

Dine with One of the World's Most Famous Hosts
This is the 2nd time I have been there. This time there were about 60 people there, most of them English speakers. A good portion of the people were travelers, just like me. The crowd is friendly and talkative. He serves a soup, a main dish, and dessert. Beer, wine (out of a box, no less), and soft drinks are available. Higly Recommended! By pixfield on Tripadvisor
