The Emily in Paris Les Deux Compères Restaurant & House: Guide to ALL the Filming Locations

Posted by

Created by Darren Star, the mastermind behind Sex and the City, Emily in Paris feels like a melange of this ultra-popular classic series with the hilarious situations narrated in the novel by Stephen Clarke A Year in the Merde.

If this book was telling the story of an Englishman experiencing the cultural differences between the British and the French, in the new Netflix series Emily is a Midwestern American woman who will have to navigate her peculiar clash of cultures in the City of Light.

Emily apartment in Paris

Lily Collins (Les Misérables, Tolkien) leads the cast as Emily Cooper, the young marketing executive and media influencer from Chicago, enjoying the dream of living in the French capital in style.

Paris is the real star of the series. Let's have a spoiler-free look into the house, restaurants, bars, and all the wonderful spots featured in the show:

The Emily in Paris House

Emily in Paris House
Emily's fifth-floor apartment with views is located at 1 Place de l'Estrapade. This is right in the heart of the 5th arrondissement, also known as the Latin Quarter, in the central area of Paris.

The house is one block away from the Panthéon and around 200 meters (excuse-moi, 650 foot) from the Sorbonne University and Le Jardin du Luxembourg, where she goes jogging at the beginning of episode 2.

Where was Emily in Paris filmed?

Marketing agency Savoir building
The French luxury marketing agency Savoir offices, where Emily has to deal with her bitchy boss Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu), is next to the real antique store Galerie Patrick Fourtin.

The building is located in Place de Valois, just two small blocks away from the Louvre Museum in the 1st arrondissement.

The bar where the agency's colleagues hang out after (and before) working hours is the Bistrot Valois, situated in the same square.

Le Grand Véfour Gardens
Emily meets her new best friend and partner in crime Mindy Chen (Ashley Park) in the Jardin du Palais Royal, near the office.

In episode 3 they have a drink in one of the few cafés situated under the arcaded gallery of this 17th-century elegant square.

The restaurant Le Grand Véfour that appears in episode 4 (where Emily confirmed the wrong date on the booking), is also located here. This two Michelin stars restaurant, run by chef Guy Martin, is one of the oldest in Paris.

Le Flore en l'Ile
Also in the first episode, Luc (Bruno Gouery) talks to Emily on the terrace of the riverfront restaurant Le Flore en l'Île.

Situated near Notre-Dame cathedral, on the other side of the Saint-Louis bridge that connects the two small central islands in the Seine river, this is the perfect spot to try the famous Berthillon ice cream.

Café de l'Homme
Architectural Digest reported that the Gilbert Group soireé in the second episode, where Emily meets Antoine Lambert (William Abadie), was filmed at Café de l'Homme in Place du Trocadéro.

Gabriel's restaurant, in the series Les Deux Compères, it's an Italian bistro called Terra Nera in real life.

Set in an old butchery, this small eatery is located at 18 Rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques, adjacent to the Place de l'Estrapade where both Gabriel and Emily live.

The Café de la Nouvelle Mairie located just across the street appears in episodes 5 and 6.

The Panthéon
Emily receives a call from his boyfriend in the Rue Soufflot. She walks to the Panthéon, the national mausoleum for the remains of distinguished French citizens.

The language school exterior is a student accommodation residence called Concordia at 41 Rue Tournefort.

Episode 3 begins with Emily running by the Seine river near the Pont des Arts. The open-air red box urinals do really exist; Men can take a leak while watching the tourist boats pass by in the eco-friendly uritrottoir, designed to avoid public peeing.

And while we're on the subject, we can confirm that walking the streets of any city in France without stepping in dog poop is hard as hell!

Filming the bridge scene
The filming of the commercial for the perfume brand was filmed in the Pont Alexandre III.

Connecting the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter with the Champs-Élysées, this magnificent Art Nouveau structure was opened in 1900.

Pont Alexandre III is one of the most ornate and exuberant bridges in the whole city.

Atelier des Lumières
The Atelier des Lumières is a spectacular venue where the visitors immerse themselves in the paintings projected on the walls.

Located at 38 Rue Saint-Maur (11e arrondissement), this art center opened in 2018. However, the original idea was developed inside an old white limestone quarry in the south of France as early as 1976.

We reported about the fascinating cathedral of images Carrières de Lumières in this dedicated article that you can check out here.

Lieux du tournage
The night out in Montmartre from episode 5 starts at the picturesque eatery La Maison Rose at 2 Rue de l'Abreuvoir.

Café de Flore and Lulu la Nantaise
According to Thomas the snob guy, he and Emily are sitting in the coolest bar of the city, the Café de Flore in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Opened in the 1880s, this coffeehouse was really frequented by famous sculptors, writers, and painters.

Also in episode 6, it appears the Lulu la Nantaise creperie at 46 Rue de la République near Canal Saint-Martin (10th arrondissement).

The model Brooklyn Clark (Carlson Young) is staying at the Haute Couture Suite with Eiffel Tower views of the opulent Hôtel Plaza Athénée. As you can see by following this link, the cheapest room costs about 1,000 Euros per night.

Family Affair Chateau
In the 8th episode, Camille (Camille Razat) and Emily have cocktails in the Hanoi Cà phê, a Vietnamese 'Cang Tîn' at 30 Boulevard des Italiens.

Camille takes Gabriel and Emily to her family's countryside manor Château de Lalisse and cellars in the Champagne wine region. This is actually the Château de Sonnay near Chinon in the Centre-Val de Loire region.

The metallic bridge pictured below is located in Chinon, a splendid medieval UNESCO World Heritage town.

The Grey Space gallery
In the 8th episode, Emily is having lunch with Judith Robertson from the American Friends of the Louvre at Ralph's, the Ralph Lauren restaurant at 173 Boulevard Saint-Germain.

In this episode, there are three different scenes filmed very close to each other: Emily talks on the phone on Rue de l'Abbaye, near the intersection with the small Rue Cardinale; Rue Cardinale is the street walks down coming from the art gallery with Mathieu Cadault (Charles Martins).

This is the same place where The Grey Space guys have their workshop.

An American Auction in Paris
The auction theater's exterior is an establishing shot of the facade of the 18th-century Monnaie de Paris palace (the French national mint), seen from the Seine river. But, where is the interior of this theater?

Cancel Couture
In the final episode, Emily and Mindy are having a drink in the '50s style Les Deux Stations bistro in Auteuil. Mathieu takes Emily out on a boat around the river, picking her up at the floating restaurant La Pause Parisienne.

Mathieu's penthouse should be located at Quai de la Mégisserie, with views to the Pont Neuf and the central Île de la Cité. The love locks bridge is the Pont des Arts.

The new Pierre Cadault collection is also presented in the Monnaie de Paris palace, but this time the scene was filmed in the interior courtyard of the building.

  1. Great article, fun show, especially for those of us kept away from Paris this year by the covid madness.
    I do wonder where that bridge with the lovelocks is? It's not the Pont des Arts, which was wiped clean of locks in June, 2015. Also, the very recognizable, Institute De France sits at its entrance on the Left Bank and the planks run cross-wise rather than length-wise as they do in the "Emily and Sylvie" scene. So where?

    1. It's the footbridge formerly called the Passerelle Solferino or the Pont Solferino. It's is a pedestrian bridge constructed between 1997 and 1999, then renamed in 2006 in memory of Leopold Sedar Senghor, who was a writer, politician and served as the first president of Senegal for two decades. It links the Orsay Museum with the Tuileries Gardens. I used to use it years ago on occasional weekends, after enjoying a visit to the Orsay Museum, to go over to the Tuileries, after which I strolled across those Gardens to visit the WH Smith English bookstore on the Rue de Rivoli. Ah, those good old days back in Paris....

  2. I am quite certain that Mathieu Cadault's penthouse is located at 50 Quai des Orfèvres. The look onto Pont Neuf is like the one from Île de la Cité.

  3. Also, at Hanoi Caphe Boulevard des Italiens close to Opera Garnier
