Look beyond the tree-lined plaza outside Cour Damoye: It’s hard to miss the Bastille’s most

imposing neighbor, L’Opéra Bastille. This cultural edifice, Europe’s largest and most

frequented opera house, opened in 1989 to celebrate the bicentennial of the storming of its

namesake. It is both home to the Paris Opera and a preeminent destination for world-class


Cour Damoye is at the edge of the 11th arrondissement, across one street from the 4th, the

famed Marais. On this very street—Boulevard Richard-Lenoir—a minute from your doorstep,

discover Paris’s biggest and best roving street market. On Thursdays and Sundays, over 200

vendors proffer cheeses, prepared dishes, charcuterie, fruits, veggies, fresh fish: everything

required to prepare a French feast chez vous in the studio’s modern kitchen.

When you prefer dining out, cross Richard-Lenoir and order justly famous seafood at nearby

Bofinger, Paris’s oldest brasserie. When only the best will do, spend the mazuma you’re

saving by staying in the studio on a 3-star meal at the renowned L’Ambroisie, one of only ten

3-star restaurants in Paris, and only a five-minute stroll away in Place des Vosges. Should the

expensive menu dampen your appetite, console yourself on a bench in Paris’s most stunning

square and count your own lucky stars. Innumerable renowned eateries—simple or elegant—

are nearby. Cooking in or eating out: that is the question!
