Emily’s apartment on Place de l’Estrapade
The first season of Emily in Paris was the most watched romantic comedy show on Netflix in 2020 with 58 million households worldwide watching the show in its first 28 days. Not everyone loved it but it was a great escape from a long period of self isolation due to the pandemic and our inability to travel. The good news is that the second season of this series will be on air soon.*
Emily Cooper’s apartment is on the fifth floor. Chef Gabriel also lives in the same building.
Place de l’Estrapade
The square in front of Emily’s apartment is a few steps from the restaurant where Gabriel works as a chef. This is a nice and quiet neighborhood.
Gabriel’s Les Deux Compère Restaurant and the Boulangerie Moderne
The restaurant where Gabriel works is the Terra Nera in real life. The Boulangerie Moderne where Emily gets her croissant from is next door (it was closed when I passed by because it was Bastille Day).
Emily is a marketing executive and she works at Savoir which is right next door to Galerie Patrick Fourtin on Place de Valois. The restaurant above is where Emily was invited to join the tight office gang after her Instagram post was acknowledged by the First Lady of France.
Jardin du Palais Royal
The Jardin du Palais Royal is where Emily met Mindy. It’s a short walk from her office at Place de Valois.
This is the Pantheon where Emily chatted with her boyfriend by phone. Formerly the Church of Saint Genèvieve, the patron saint of Paris, the Panthéon was transformed into a patriotic monument to the great men and women of France after the French Revolution. Victor Hugo, Voltaire, Rousseau, Zola, Pierre and Marie Curie, Dumas are buried here, among others.
Emily went to watch Swan Lake at the Palais Garnier and to see Pierre Cadault, the couturier/client of Savoir.
L’Atelier des Lumières
Gabriel, his girlfriend Camille and Emily went to see the Van Gogh Immersive Art Exhibition at l’Atelier des Lumières on 38 Rue Saint Maur. (The image above is from the Klimt/Schiele/Hundertwasser Immersive Art Exhibition.)
Emily and Mindy celebrate the evening in Montmartre before she deletes her Instagram account.
“ I like Paris, but I’m not really sure Paris likes me.” Emily
