25 Emily in Paris Filming Locations Every Fan Should Visit

Emily in Paris is one of Netflix’s biggest successes in 2020.

If you haven’t seen it (yet), the show is about Emily Cooper, a young American woman, who leaves Chicago and goes to Paris, where she is about to start her new career at Savoir, a marketing agency.

If you want to pretend to be Emily, here is our guide concerning 25 places you can see in the show.

 

Emily’s apartment

Emily’s apartment really is in Paris, in the Latin Quarter, “place de l’Estrapade”.

She lives on the fifth floor (without an elevator) of the “maison Moreau” where she has an amazing view of the city.

Though you will not be able to enjoy the view from the apartment, you can walk on the place de l’Estrapade and enjoy the beautiful fountain in its center.

 

Savoir

Savoir is a fictional agency, but its neighborhood does exist.

It is located on the “place de Valois”, in the 1st arrondissement of Paris.

The agency being fictional, can’t be visited, but you can stroll around the square and pretend to be Emily going to work.

 

Emily’s marketing campaign

In the fifth episode of the first season, Emily creates a marketing campaign for a brand of luxury mattresses.

Her idea is to put beds in public places so people can take selfies on them.

At the end of the episode, a bed is set up at “place Dalida”, in the Montmartre district and Emily takes the first picture of the campaign. You can recreate the scene -without the bed.

 

The shooting of a perfume ad

In episode 3, Emily attends the shooting of a perfume ad for the brand Maison Lavaux.

Is there a better place for such a shooting than the Pont Alexandre III?

Day or night, it’s an amazing place, where you can take your greatest selfies!

 

Party at the Musée de l’Homme

In the second episode, Emily is invited to a party thrown by one of the agency’s customers.

The venue is the “Musée de l’Homme”, just across the Eiffel Tower.

While this museum is a place you can and should visit, it’s the view of the Eiffel tower that was impressive in this episode.

This scene is amazing: Emily wears the most beautiful dress, with a glass of champagne, facing an illuminated Eiffel Tower.

 

Atelier des Lumières

In the seventh episode, Emily visits the Atelier des Lumières, a light show, with two other characters, Camille and Gabriel.

It’s the occasion for Emily to have a serious talk with Gabriel, and for us to enjoy the Van Gogh exhibition that was on display when the show was shot.

The exhibitions of the Atelier des Lumières change quite often.

You will not be able to recreate the exact scene that Emily lived, but it’s still an interesting place to visit. Read our article about the Atelier des Lumières.

 

Musée des Arts Forains

This museum is where Emily attended another party for her job.

The museum displays ancient restored merry-go-rounds and other items related to ground fairs.

You can rent one of their venues to visit the museum or to hold a private event, like in the show.

 

Plaza Athénée Hotel – Suite Eiffel Haute Couture

The hotel Plaza Athénée is one of the most luxurious hotels in Paris. It even received the title of “palace”.

The Eiffel suite has an amazing view on the Eiffel Tower and it’s in this suite that Emily meets Brooklyn, an American actress.

Unfortunately, not everyone can afford a night in this suite.

Instead, you can take a selfie outside the hotel or have a drink at one of its bar-restaurants.

 

Evreux hotel

The fictional brand Durée organized an event at the hotel Evreux, an old townhouse, from where you can see the famous Place Vendôme.

If you can’t get an invitation for a private event in their private room, you can still walk around the luxurious place Vendôme and its bronze column that you can see from the hotel’s windows.

 

Hôtel Particulier Montmartre

23 avenue Junot, 75018 Paris

Just like Emily, you can have lunch in the gardens of the Hotel Particulier Montmartre.

You can get a table at the restaurant, even if you don’t have a room.

You can enjoy an amazing lunch in a luxurious garden.

If you’d rather have a drink than a real meal, their cocktail bar “Très Particulier” will welcome you in their room or their terrace.

 

Royal Palace Garden

You might not meet your new best friend where Emily met hers, but you can enjoy a nice relaxing time in the garden of the royal palace.

This is the place where Emily and Mindy meet, and later, where they come to have lunch or chat.

This beautiful garden where you can relax is also where you can find the “bench-poems” engraved with quotes from Colette and Cocteau, two French authors.

 

Palais Garnier

Place de l’Opéra, 75009 Paris

Palais Garnier

Emily has a date at the Palais Garnier where she attends a performance of the Swan Lake.

The Grand Véfour is a Parisian gastronomic restaurant that opened in 1820.

Many artists, especially from the literary world of 1950, were customers in this restaurant.

Emily had to reserve a table for a dinner with an important client of the agency, but she had the date mixed up.

In 2021, the menu was modified and the prices are (a bit) more affordable, but you still need to reserve your table.

To avoid Emily’s mistakes, don’t forget that French people write the day before the month.

 

Monnaie de Paris

In the last episode of season 1, Pierre Cadault and the Savoir agency set up a publicity stunt for the Fashion Week, outside of the Monnaie de Paris museum.

In the show, it takes place outside the building, but you can visit the museum or check out the store, the café, and the restaurant.

 

Pantheon

Place du Panthéon, 75005 Paris

Pantheon

In the second episode, there is a break-up scene in front of the Pantheon. While the outside of the building is beautiful, you can also discover and visit inside.

The Pantheon is an amazing architectural prowess that houses the graves of important historical figures such as Marie Curie, Victor Hugo and Emile Zola. Read our article about it here.

Roxie is a bar-restaurant that recreates a prohibition atmosphere and where you can dance all night long.

In the show, it’s a drag-queens bar where Mindy performs Chandelier on stage after her friends persuaded her to do so.

In real life, there is no drag-queen, but a band performing classics, from the 1950s to today, live.

The ingredients are all seasonal and local and served in a lovely pink house with green shutters.

This café is one of the most famous in the capital.

Emily goes there in the first season.

This is where she meets Thomas, the man with whom she will go to the opera.

The Café de Flore is one of Paris’ landmarks that all tourists love to visit.

The most famous authors and poets were customers of this café.

 

Café de la Nouvelle Mairie

19 rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques, 75005 Paris

Close to the Moderne bakery, you can find the Café de la Nouvelle Mairie where Emily sometimes meets up with Mindy.

From breakfast to dinner, you can go to this café at any time of the day for a delicious meal or a simple café.

This typically Parisian café welcomes you in the main room or on their terrace.

 

Terra Nera

18 rue des fossés Saint Jacques, 75005 Paris

In the show, Gabriel is the chef at the restaurant Les Deux Compères.

This restaurant doesn’t exist, at least not under this name.

The real restaurant where the show was filmed is the Terra Nera, an Italian restaurant.

You have to reserve a table if you want to eat there, especially now that the show made it popular. For the fans of the show, a meal and a dish named after Emily were added to the menu.

 

Ralph’s

173 boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris

Ralph’s is an American restaurant that belongs to the Ralph Lauren brand.

Emily is happy to eat there and enjoy a little piece of home. It’s a magnificent and luxurious restaurant.

The menu was created along with Ralph Lauren himself.

If the meals are said to be delicious, it’s not a restaurant that everyone can afford.

 

Lulu la Nantaise

67 rue de Lancry, 75010 Paris

Lulu la Nantaise is a crêperie where Emily, Thomas, Gabriel and Camille have dinner.

It’s a typical crêperie that serves buckwheat and savory crêpes.

Located near the Canal Saint-Martin, this crêperie is open from lunch to dinner, every day. We only hope you spend a better moment there than Emily.

 

Bistrot Valois

Next to the Savoir agency, you will find the Bistro Valois.

Unlike the fictional agency, the bistro is real.

Just like Emily and her colleagues, you can have lunch there.

It has a panoramic view of the place de Valois.

The terrace is covered and heated in winter, so you can enjoy it any time of the year.
