The 1st gets considerable mileage out of its famous Louvre to Tuileries stretch. Fear not! The 1st arrondissement offers far more than stale national monuments.
Pop out of the metro at Tuileries (1) and run across the street to Café Angelina. Sip their famous chocolat africain (hot chocolate) for a pre‐exploring sugar rush.
Head towards the Place de la Concorde on Rue de Rivoli, and turn left into the Jeu de Paume museum. Consistently hosting unusual and superbly curated exhibits, the Jeu de Paume was a royal tennis court back in the day. From the Jeu de Paume walk across Rue de Rivoli onto Rue de Castiglione, and then right onto Rue St. Honoré. No one skimps on luxury on one of the most fashionable streets in Paris. Feast your eyes on Colette, the home of the style vanguard. It is not enough to call Colette a store – it is an international mecca for the fashion industry. Boys, girls, urban, rock‐chic, and the jet set. All are welcomed to be fabulous.
Louis Vuitton feels too modern? Maison Goyard has been crafting luxury luggage at #233 with care since Napoleon I was a neighbour. Continue along Rue St. Honoré and veer right onto Rue Jean‐Jacques Rousseau. Channel Catherine Deneuve’s Belle du Jour in a sanctuary of frilly, girly, brazen lingerie at Fifi Cachnil.
Also on Rue St. Honoré is Astier de la Villatte. This is not mom’s crockery. Hand‐glazed teacups and paper‐thin champagne glasses make the shop a must see, if only to walk away with a handsome gilt notebook. Hop across the street to Café Verlet for a quick custom‐ordered espresso.
Take a right onto Rue Richelieu towards the Louvre and stop. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is among the most intriguing and playful museums that the city offers. Preconceived ideas about chairs as art, begone! Exhibits on fashion, toys, interior décor, and furniture are presented with a distinct touch of whimsy. Plus, the outdoor café offers a stunning view of the adjoining Tuileries gardens. Next door the Café Marly is prime for catching some rays in the shade of the Louvre pyramid. Just across the Rue Richelieu are the enchanting Palais Royal gardens and arcades. Don’t stop there! Push further into the recesses of rococo passageways, acclaimed restaurants, and hidden cafes to uncover the 1st arrondissement from Louis XIV to today.
Wander onto Rue de l’Arbre Sec; a culinary treasure trove virtually unknown to the umbrella‐waving tourist set. As her name suggests, Chez La Vielle Adrienne offers classic bistro cuisine in a rustic‐romantic 16th century edifice – with a seriously reasonable menu. The only thing missing is a fireplace to complete the city‐country illusion. Toddle down the street to wine bar Le Garde Robe for a nightcap of natural and biodynamic wine, and then east on rue St. Honoré to gaze at St. Eustache Church in its nighttime glow. Venture further into the 1st to Les Fines Gueules for super premium oysters, meat, fish, and natural wines from some of the country’s best purveyors prepared with a light hand. For fine dining of the moment, check out Daniel Rose’s Spring – a constant critic and crowd favourite.
