Paris: North of the historic Marais district, the third arrondissement (Haut Marais) entices visitors with its tangle of streets, non-touristic charm and fashionable addresses. Once a manufacturing hub, this now uber-trendy neighborhood first made its mark on the Paris trend map in 2009, following the opening of Merci concept shop, a former wallpaper factory, on Boulevard Beaumarchais. It was in factOfr. bookstore and gallery that was the first to settle in, years earlier, now the artful meeting place of locals.
This Right Bank quartier, spanning from the Picasso Museum to the Place de la République, boasts an array of chic coffee shops, independent fashion boutiques, and modern and eclectic eateries. Discreetly located on rue de Bretagne, Marché des Enfants Rouges, Paris’s oldest covered market, reveals produce and cuisine from around the world, including Japan, Italy and Africa. With the 2014 reopening of the Carreau du Temple, a 70,000 sq ft exhibition space housed in a former covered market, many of Paris’s largest cultural events now take place here, from Hermès expositions to food truck festivals. The stylish 3ème is certainly a place to see, if not to be seen.
