PARIS 2e

"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


Louvre des Antiquaires

A lot of bling at the Paris supermarket of antiques and art. You can't miss this place with its 200 gallery tenants stretched over 3 floors of the former Grands Magasins du Louvre, a defunct department store that got reopened in the 1970s as a huge shopping mall for art pieces. iI you're on Place du Palais Royal it is always worth a detour, since it's got no admission price but you can almost consider it a museum, sometimes of bling and kitsch, and yet sometimes of serious artpieces of imaculate taste and refinement.

    Bonjour! Cedric,
    That certainly is a lot of..."bling and kitsch, and serious artpieces of imaculate taste and refinement.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
