Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry.

Maxim's was founded in 1893 as Maxime et Georges, a bistro for coachmen. It wouldn't be until 1900 under Eugène Cornuché, who renamed it Maxim's when he took over in 1895 after original owner Maxime Gaillard died, that it became the high-brow, over-the-top Art Nouveau establishment seen in the film.

This is unbelievable! Look at this! There's no city like this in the world. There never was.
You act like you've never been here before.
I don't get here often enough, that's the problem. Can you picture how drop dead gorgeous this city is in the rain? Imagine this town in the '20s. Paris in the '20s, in the rain. The artists and writers!
Why does every city have to be in the rain? What's wonderful about getting wet?
