14 Rue Crespin du Gast, 75011 Paris, France
We admit, it's not the easiest place to find—the entrance is through an unmarked door on a bland residential street in Menilmontant. But once you do (hint: look for the velvet rope) and take the elevator seven floors up, you'll be rewarded with...
14 Rue Bochart de Saron, 75009 Paris, France
It's the most grownup of the cocktail bars in super-trendy SoPi (South Pigalle), a quickly gentrifying area that is still home to a large number of sex shops and massage parlors. Around the U-shaped bar, with soul music gently throbbing in the...
75019, 39 Quai de la Loire, 75019 Paris, France
It's billed as part café, part workspace, but we can't imagine slaving away in front of a laptop with these views. Set inside a old stone house, Le Pavillon des Canaux overlooks a picturesque canal with houseboats bobbing in the distance....
172 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris, France
Go for the scene, not the food, and enjoy the Art Deco décor and great people-watching at this buzzy Left Bank landmark. Despite a limited menu and steep prices, the place is packed day and night. Order a chocolat chaud and sit on the...
6 Place Saint-Germain des Prés, 75006 Paris, France
One part tourist trap, one part beloved café, Les Deux Magots is a legendary spot that everyone should visit at least once when in Paris. Most famous as the place where the likes of Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre and Ernest Hemingway...
6 Rue de l'Amiral de Coligny, 75001 Paris, France
If you've been to the Louvre, one of the city's top attractions, you know that most of the restaurants and bars in the near vicinity are mediocre tourist traps. Fortunately, Le Fumoir is an exception, a restaurant-bar-café-tearoom that...
64 Rue Tiquetonne, 75002 Paris, France
This concept store deals mainly in second-hand clothing and accessories from established labels, but also stocks new items from emerging designers. The condition of the used items is excellent, so don't expect thrift-store prices—denim jackets...
4 Rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie, 75004 Paris, France
Stocked with quirky-chic frames in unexpected colors and patterns, this boutique in Le Marais makes wearing glasses cool. Specs are handmade in France and Japan, with titanium or plastic frames, and all are designed by Anne and Valentin, a...
213 Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris, France
Beside the fact that Rue Saint Honore is one of my favorite streets in Paris (not only for window shopping but also for people spotting) and I can spend hours and days going from one store to another, one of the most popular and trendiest concept...
68-72 Rue Montmartre, 75002 Paris, France
H&M’s first stand-alone brand debuted in Europe in 2007, selling minimalist, architectural basics that evoke the aesthetic of luxury house Céline—albeit with a few zeroes knocked off the price tag. There are plans to bring the chain to the United...
4 Rue de Castiglione, 75001 Paris, France
As much as Paris is packed with perfumes stores, there is always room for one more; Jovoy Paris opened in Paris at the end of March and focuses on rare, exclusive and limited edition perfumes. Aside from the wide selection, which is both original...
132-140 Rue des Rosiers, 93400 Saint-Ouen, France
Marché aux Puces de St-Ouen, aka Clignancourt, is Europe’s largest flea market and the city’s favorite place to find a bargain. Exiting the Métro at Porte de Clignancourt, those in the know pass by the counterfeit...
4 Rue de Sévigné, 75004 Paris, France
THey say the best crêpes in Paris are in the Montparnasse district. But while that may be true, I had an exceptional lunch at the La Cidrerie du Marais. The owners are from Breton so it is "legit" and the offerings are diverse. I had the simple...
