Ooh Paris. The city of love, croissants and very handsome people. We decided to jump on the train for a mini trip with the Chapter Friday team for an exquisite hotspot safari throughout Le Marais, one of Paris’ finest neighborhoods packed with concept stores, boutiques, markets and great cafes.
Where did we go? As sharing is caring, you’ll find our favorite tips below. If we missed any great place we should definitely put on the list too, please let us know in the comments below.
Lily of the Valley
This adorable little tea room created by Paris-based designer Marie Deroudilhe is filled with flowers and hanging plants which are definitely an instant mood booster. Go see it!
Rue Dupetit-Thouars, 75003 Paris
Boot Café is the perfect place to start your day in Le Marais but you got to be lucky, there are only three little tables.
19 Rue du Pont aux Choux, 75003 Paris
Oh, Ob La Di you stole our hearts. This café opened only a year ago and is a BIG Instagram hit. This place has all the elements: the perfect blue tiles, tiny marble tables, and mouthwatering avocado toast and is the perfect work or catch up spot for Parisian or international creatives.
54 Rue de Saintonge, 75003 Paris
Season is an organic gluten free lunchroom/restaurant with the most pretty and calm interior. You can also take away and follow them on Instagram and snapchat. The real deal.
1 Rue Charles-François Dupuis, 75003 Paris
Close to Palais Royal in the heart of the historic centre, you’ll find Aesop. The wooden interior designed by Rodney Eggleston is again so on point. Friendly staff and of course the never disappointing products that make you want to create a chic hotel of your bathroom.
256 Rue Saint Honoré, 75001 Paris
The first thing you see when you get out of the Metro (Saint-Sébastien – Froissart) is Merci and it wants to make you run over the street immediately. Merci is a big eclectic store based in an old wallpaper factory, where you can easily spend hours of joy. From a built-in barbershop to fashion labels like Isabel Marant, My Banana Time and young local fashion labels or their impressive interior collection. A must visit!
111 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75003 Paris
And after visiting Merci you can hop over again because Kitsuné is waiting for you and you don’t want to miss it! This is not just a store, you really enter the awesome world of Maison Kitsuné when stepping into their gorgeous stores. Tiles on fleek + serving tasty coffees in their caffé’s.
18 Boulevard des Filles du Calvaire, 75011 Paris
Leon & Harper
“Leon & Harper would like to associate with this new generation of girls who are audacious, full of talent and free of mind.” Philippe Corbin (designer) please keep it up, we are a big fan!
95 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75003 Paris
If you’re following us for a while, it’s probably not a surprise for you that we went to visit this shop. Notebooks in all the colors of the rainbow, pizza brooches by Macon et Lesquoy and creative prints to pimp your art wall.
5 Rue des Filles du Calvaire, 75003 Paris
Every girl loves a good burger. 10+ because all drinks are served with palm-tree straws.
1 Rue Perrée, 75003 Paris
Based in Oberkampf and Paris Bastille, this place is the bomb. Opening at six and you better be early (or make a reservation) Enjoy the finger licking good food and fine interior.
107 Boulevard Richard Lenoir, 75011 Paris
Andy who? Owned by the same folks as booming place Derriere in Paris and Momo and Sketch in London this place was high on our list. The interior is funky 70’s and Andy Warhol inspired and tons of candles light up the room when you’re drinking one of their great North African wines (or cocktails).
69 Rue des Gravilliers, 75003 Paris
Le Ballroom du Beefclub
The latest and fifth venture of the unstoppable guys responsible for the Paris cocktail revolution is a hit again. Upstairs you can dine, at the menu, you find mostly steaks and downstairs you’ll find the bar. They serve only 8 cocktails but I’m sure they won’t disappoint you. Tip: visit on Sundays, there will be live music.
58 Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 75001 Paris
