Where is Emily in Paris filmed? 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 is back for season two with new chic locations.

The show is 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.

Emily apartment in Paris

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.

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, Les Deux Compères restaurant, and all the wonderful spots featured in the show - you'll find the new season 2 updates below in the report.

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.

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.

Uritrottoir
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!

  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.
