Paris Travel Guide
The oldest department store in Paris, Le Bon Marché is considered by some to be the first department store in the world.
20 Sur 20 is a tiny costume jewelry shop in the 1ère arrondisement. Located on a narrow street just one-half block from the Seine river, the store’s gray and white façade has Art Deco lettering and large picture windows looking to welcoming to those who love les bijoux.
Established by designer André Perugia in 1896, this widespread French footwear chain sells trendy, high-quality shoes at reasonable prices.
Offering a unique, yet still Parisian, take on pastries, La Pâtisserie des Rêves in the 16th arrondissement features the work of Phillippe Conticini.
Pain d'Epis remains true to its name, which means wheat stalk bread.
Two young entrepreneurs are reviving bespoke for a new generation in this tiny men’s boudoir. Trendy and classic custom shirts start at $293, two-piece suits at $1,385, and both can be delivered in two to four weeks.
The quiet cobbled street, tiny brass sign, and nondescript door give little indication that the Experimental Cocktail Club is located here in the Montorgueil district.
Besides trading in colorful produce and lusty charcuterie, this petite marché in the Marais (one of the oldest in Paris) is the spot for an affordable meal assembled from the variety of ethnic prepared-food stands.
