Museum of Decorative Arts
107, rue de Rivoli, 75001
The best museum in Paris, where you can see a large collection of furniture - from Gothic to contemporary design objects. The museum is also very interesting for its practice to include the works of contemporary authors in the permanent exhibition, thus enabling us to know what inspired the artist to create the object. In the same building is the Museum of Fashion and Textiles, where temporary retrospective exhibitions are held.
Centre of Fashion and Design Les Docks
The grand design space area of 15 000 sq. meters between the Bastille and the Botanical Garden can not be ignored. Ultra-modern and very human at the same time, with showrooms, cafes, restaurants, open day and night for all design enthusiasts. Built in 1907, a giant building acquired a futuristic view and has become a favorite place for Parisians as a center that combines shopping and leisure.
10, avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie, 75116
The museum has a huge archive of costumes and accessories from different eras, but items are presented only for temporary exhibitions due to their value
Le Lieu du Design
74, rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, 75012
The unique creative space opened in the heart of Paris a few years ago, supported by the French government and is dedicated to innovative industrial design, which will surround us every day in the near future. The platform for designers, manufacturers and the general public, the perfect place for creativity and the exchange of ideas.
Saint Ouen Flea Market
Metro Rorte de Clignancourt, 4 Line
“City within a city”, one of the biggest antique markets in the world, founded in 1885, is located on 7 acres and includes 14 separate areas, completely different in spirit. Some are more like museums or art galleries, the other - like thrift shops where you can still find the rare unusual thing. A very pleasant place to walk, even without buying anything. Grab a snack in one of several nice cafes, such as Ma Cocotte, decorated by Philippe Starck - a very cozy place with a fireplace and a collection of vintage objects.
No coincidence that at the flea market in Saint-Ouen Woody Allen shot a few scenes of the film "Midnight in Paris."
Bistro La Vieux Belleville
12, rue des Envierges, 75020
Located in the 20th, very democratic, somewhat remote from the center of the district, where you usually "do not reach". But this is a place where you should go at least once, especially if you do not live in France. This French bistro atmosphere with live accordion. At the end of the evening everybody sing the old French chanson. Simple real people, simple French cuisine. But do not go there to eat just come and have a little adventure.
109, rue Oberkampf, 75011
It exists since the XIX century. Gloomy place with a subdued light. The high ceilings, the walls with the shelves and mirrors, patterned floor tiles, worn benches, covered with leather. And the background music. You have to go there for long to drink a cup of coffee, to eat a snack or to read.
226, rue de Rivoli, 75001
It is always crowded, but you get the best hot chocolate in town. Not just teahouse, but very beautiful, historic café Art Nouveau, founded in 1903, and visited by Proust, Coco Chanel and the French couturier ... favorite - Museum of Decorative Arts at the Rivoli, then "Angelina." Cakes are absolutely delicious, but hot chocolate is completely magnificent.
Bertillon ice cream on the island of Saint Louis
29-31, rue Saint Louis en l'Ile, 75004
It would seem that cold winter is not the best time for such pleasures, but only if it is not the famous ice cream "Bertiyon" in the most romantic place of the most beautiful city in the world. You have to stay in line, but the pleasure is worth it. This gastronomic "seventh heaven"!
Japanese confectionery Ciel
3, rue Monge, 75005
CIEL - «Heaven" is located near the Sorbonne in the Latin Quarter. White, minimalist interior design. The only colorful details - very delicate, airy, "angelic" desserts in glass cases. This place is good for Japanese tea degustation in the afternoon or tasting savory desserts with champagne in the evening.
