Meet Us in the Marais

Ah, Paris! The birthplace of romance and haute couture, home to some of the finest cultural and epicurean offerings on the planet and, if you’re not in the know, a minefield of tourist traps. To get the quatre-un-un on the best of the City of Light—the historic-and-happening Marais neighborhood in particular—we turned to our most trusted sources, home office Francophiles Susy, Wendy and Maggie, for the off-the-beaten-rue finds.

"When it comes to shopping, I can’t help but love the range of fashion, home and design at Merci, and always stop by the two kids stores around the corner—Wowo and Bon Ton. Don’t miss Chez Omar for couscous!”
                  -Maggie, Apparel Merchandise Manager

"We had dinner at the eccentric bohemian restaurant, Le Derriere, which is hidden away with an unmarked doorway—super fun and cool. When you get sick of croissants and baguettes, the rustic-modern Rose Bakery has the best carrot cake in the world. Browse vintage cameras and musical instruments on Boulevard Beaumarchais. Galerie Nikki Diana Marquardt is wonderful, especially if the Dan Flavin installation is on view.”
                 -Susy, Chief Marketing Officer

"This hunting and nature museum is a real secret spot. For a fun combo of book browsing and a snack, try the tearoom at Le Thé des Écrivains. And be sure to check out Pamela Popo for a delicious dinner and great people-watching.”
                 -Wendy, Head Curator

We hit the streets of the Marais—see what we wore!
