Passage Choiseul

Métro: Quatre Temps ( line 3 )

                 23 rue Saint-Augustin, 75002 Paris
Hours: Monday - Saturday 8:00 am to 8:00 pm

 Every passage way has a different flavor. To me, Passage de Choiseul is the spot for fancy shoes . You can tell that it is the good quality stuff; although maybe not as modern and hip as fashionistas would like.

Originally, it was a row of little mansions which were destroyed; thanks to a bank which thought they could replace the mansions by a hip housing complex. Of course the idea was abandoned when the area became a bit "has been". Only the gallery (1825 -1827) remains of this project.

It is most lively during office hours with all kinds of little eateries opened for lunch. However, don't expect a rush in the evening. Most shops close after 6:00 pm and it becomes quiet if not dead.
