Bonjour! I wanted to introduce you to our new home in Passage Verdeau!
If you’ve never explored the Passages of Paris, then get ready to promenade in style through these gorgeous arcades of discovery! From the start of the nineteenth century, these were the places to be seen shopping in Paris.
In Miss Parfaite's neighbourhood in the 9e, we’re lucky enough to have three passages: Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy and Passage Verdeau, each with their own personality. Passage des Panoramas is quickly becoming the foodie passage. Everything from something très Parisian to a quaint vegan café.
Passage Jouffroy - frivolity and fun for young and young at heart with Musée Grevin, souvenirs and one of the best toy shops in Paris. Here you’ll also find Hôtel Chopin, one of the oldest hotels in Paris which have been in continuous operation since 1846!
Since 1847 the quietly elegant Passage Verdeau has been the calmer sister to Passage Jouffroy. The long glass skylight with fishbone vault fills the passage with light under which soft pink flagstone floors glow. We couldn’t think of a more fitting place for Miss Parfaite to call home - a veritable runway of pink edged in black! Like us, Monsieur Verdeau was an entrepreneur with an appreciation of life’s finer things - Apparently, he is responsible for creating a linen rental business for the hotels of Paris.
You might hear that Passage Verdeau is famous for antique dealers, second-hand books and art, and this reputation is carried by the passage’s proximity to Hôtel Drouot, the famous Parisian auction rooms which have been operating since 1852. The area is historically known as Quartier Art Drouot, but there is a fresh energy and style awakening in the neighbourhood. Come visit us!
You’ll find Passage Verdeau running between rue de la Grange-Bateliére and rue du Faubourg-Montmarte.
