Emily in Paris is THE trendiest and most successful series on Netflix. And for Parisians, it is all the more so as surprising to rediscover the capital from the young Chicago lady’s point of view as we follow her adventures as she must adapt to the Parisian art de vivre.
Each episode takes us to familiar places in the French capital, but if they are not familiar, they can ring a bell… Craving Emily’s super tasty pain au chocolat? Wanting to take a selfie where she works? Here are all the shooting locations!
First stop, the Place de l’Estrapade in Paris 5th arrondissement. You can guess where her chambre de bonne is with her super incredible views on the Panthéon or the Sorbonne. Not far from here, at 8 rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques, you will come across some familiar restaurant: Emily’s handsome neighbor’s restaurant. Two differences: Gabriel is not there and the restaurant is not called “Les deux Compères” but “Terra Nera”. At 16 rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques, there is the Boulangerie Moderne where Emily whets our appetite as she bites in what looks like the best pain au chocolat in her life.
Then, head to Palais-Royal to discover Emily’s workplace, at Savoir. This is the Place Valois, a super-chic spot right by the Colonnes de Buren and the Palais-Royal garden where the young American enjoys one of her first breaks. Pretty much hidden, the Place Valois is also the perfect place to enjoy a café terrace in peace in Paris – just saying! Emily also tries to book a table at Grand Véfour, aka chef Guy Martin’s Michelin-starred restaurant at 17 rue de Beaujolais.
Then, from the Place Vendôme with Ladurée and all the way to the Monnaie de Paris for Pierre Cadault’s show, without forgetting the Pont Alexandre III bridge for Maison Lavaux perfume commercial, Emily is taken in the twirl of the daily life in Paris. In turns, she discovers the Musée des Arts Forains, the Atelier des Lumières, toasts in front of the Eiffel Tower at the Musée de l'Homme or in Montmartre, by the legendary Maison Rose set 2 rue de l’Abreuvoir, without forgetting the Café de Flore and the Opéra Garnier opera house!
