All the stunning real life Paris filming locations from Emily In Paris on Netflix
Gabriel’s restaurant is real so I’ll just be booking a table every night
Have you ever watched a Netflix show that has made you want to up sticks and move there? Emily In Paris is probably one of those shows – because the filming locations are nothing short of beautiful. I mean, it is set in Paris (obvs) – which helps a lot.
The series sees Emily Cooper move to Paris to take a job at a marketing firm. She’s handed the keys to an apartment in the centre of Paris and is constantly going to fancy events, cute bistros and mingling with the locals – despite her distinct lack of cultural knowledge.
Here are all the gorgeous Paris filming locations used in Netflix series Emily In Paris. Brb, just packing my suitcase.
Emily moves into a fifth (or maybe sixth) floor apartment in Paris. Atlas of Wonders found her flat as being located at 1 Place de l’Estrapade. This is right in the centre of Paris, in the city’s Latin quarter. It’s right down the street from from the Sorbonne University.
The interiors of Emily’s apartment were shot in a studio.
The reason Emily moved to Paris is to work for luxury marketing company, Savoir. The office is shown in lots of episodes and is seen as being next door to Galerie Patrick Fourtin. This is real and is an antiques store situated in Place de Valois. In this small square there are a couple of restaurants and luxury hotels. It’s right by the Louvre museum.
If you’re thinking of heading to Paris just to try out Gabriel’s restaurant (same) then you’re in luck, because yes it is real. In the series it’s called Les Deux Compères which translates to “the two friends”.
In real life, the restaurant is just opposite the apartment block building where Emily and Gabriel live, and the restaurant is a little Italian bistro called Terra Nera. The address is 18 Rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques and the restaurant scores four stars on Trip Advisor.
The pastry shop Emily visits
Literally just next door to Gabriel’s restaurant in real life is the pastry shop where Emily picks up a pain au chocolat and goes back and takes a selfie with the woman who works there. This is called the same thing in the show and in real life, La Boulangerie Moderne.
The pastry shop was a regular spot out of the filming locations for Emily In Paris, with Emily seen going there and walking past it in lots of episodes.
The restaurant Luc and Emily go to
In the first episode, Emily and Luc go to waterfront restaurant, Le Flore en l’Île. This restaurant is real, and the name is the same in real life too. It’s described as a French gastropub and is just a short walk over the bridge to the Notre-Dame cathedral.
Atelier des Lumières – where Emily, Gabriel and Camille sit
Later on we see Emily, Cami and Gabriel visit Atelier des Lumières together. This is a popular tourist attraction in Paris, a unique art centre presenting classic pieces in immersive music and video-accompanied exhibitions.
Where Emily sets up the bed for the sleep under the stars campaign
In episode five, Emily sets up a marketing campaign for Swedish luxury mattress company Hästens, where she sets up a bed outside and invites people to sleep under the stars together. The bed is set up in Montmartre at the bottom of a picturesque street. The scene was filmed at Place Dalida, at the intersection of rue Girardon and rue de l’Abreuvoir. The area is known for its cute cobbled streets and bistros.
The influencer lunch event
We see Emily head to an influencer lunch event during Paris Fashion Week. It takes place in a building overlooking the Place Vendôme neighbourhood in Paris. The column we can see in the background over the balcony is the historic landmark, Colonne Vendôme.
The Opera venue
In episode six, Emily goes to see Swan Lake after seeing that Pierre Cadault is in charge of the costumes. This takes place at the stunning Palais Garnier Opera House in Paris, known for its grand staircase as well as becoming one of the most famous opera houses in the world. It is situated at Place de l’Opéra in the 9th arrondissement of Paris.
The hotel Brooklyn stays at
In episode seven, Emily is tasked with looking after movie star Brooklyn. Brooklyn is seen staying at a luxury hotel, which Atlas of Wonders has found is Hôtel Plaza Athénée. The exact room she was staying in is its Haute Couture Eiffel Suite, famous for its views of the Eiffel Tower.
The suite is described as “the epitome of Parisian glamour”, has a king-sized bed and marble en-suite, a mini bar, flat screen TV and it comes with an iPad and bottle of champagne, of course.
Camille’s family home in Champagne
In the eighth episode, Camille takes Gabriel and Emily to her family home in the countryside in Champagne. On the show they call it the Chateau de Lalisse but, in an interview with Architectural Digest, the shows’s production designer Anne Seibel said: “We filmed at the Château de Sonnay in Cravant-les-Côteaux near Chinon. It belongs to a friend of mine, Frédéric de Foucaud, and the producers fell in love with it.”
It’s a real life vineyard and you can buy wine from there.
