A public figure and a man behind the scenes, Rasmus Michau is an entrepreneur with fingers in many pies. This night owl is co-creator of the Parisian events of the Institut Bonheur in the summer and the Cirque du Bonheur in the winter. Offering rare music from electro artists from all over the world, he has built up quite a reputation for himself in the Paris nightlife. By day, Rasmus is hyperactive: up before 8 a.m, he artfully manages his events website Say Who and his company Hmm! Never missing an opportunity to bargain-hunt and visit contemporary art fares across the world, this dandy with a unique flair is launching a new smartphone app on the 16th April. The concept behind Bonjour Bonjour is to geolocate your friends who are connected in any part of the world. In the meantime, Rasmus gives us an exclusive look at his home.

Your latest crush?
Bonjour Bonjour, the essential app to download on your smartphone. The Rue Saint-Denis in the 10th arrondissement; we just moved our office there. It’s a real melting pot: there’s the Sentier, the ladies waiting for their johns, the Pakistani delivery guys, the Passage Brady and the hipsters from Chez Jeannette opposite. Here, the real Paris still exists.
The latest restaurant you would recommend in Paris?
The Beef Club, 58, rue Jean Jacques Rousseau (1st arr.), the best meat in Paris.
