An early monoplane at the Musée des Arts et Métiers

A quieter part of the ancient Marais neighborhood which is centered in the 4th, the 3rd is possibly one of the best places to live in Paris. There are several good open air markets, a gigantic covered flea market, and lots of great speciality food stores, especially along rue de Bretagne.

The museums of the 3rd are among the best anywhere, including the Musée Picasso which contains both the master's works and his collections, and the almost undefinable Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers which has on display the first prototypes of almost every important invention, including the first monoplane, numerous artifacts from the creation of the Statue of Liberty, and of course, Foucault's Pendulum.

Contents

Get in

By Métro

Station Arts et Metiers (3, 11) is probably the most convenient for the Musée des Arts et Metiers (obviously), but also within easy walking distance of all the attractions of the 3rd

Station Republique (3, 5, 8, 9, 11) is on the northern edge of the 3rd arrondissement, but superbly well-connected and therefore highly convenient

See

Urban Buffalo in the 3rd
  • Musée Picasso, 5 rue de Thorigny (Métro: Chemin Vert), +33 1 42 71 25 21, [1]. 9:30AM to 6:00PM Wednesday to Monday and 9:30AM to 8:00PM on Thursdays, except during winter when closing time is always 5:30PM.

Do

Buy

There's a lot of stuff to buy in the 3rd, mainly in the side streets of the upper Marais down near the 4th. Of particular interest are the large number of men's clothing stores on rue de Turenne.

  • Au Réparateur de Bicyclettes, 44 Blvd de Sébastopol (Métro: Rambuteau), +33 1 48 04 51 19. Monday to Saturday 10AM to 8PM. If you would rather have a funkier bike than the ones you can rent from the RATP you would do a lot worse than checking out this little bicycle repair shop which also offers a wide range of new and used bikes. Their specialty in new bikes is Dutch and English bicycles, but some of the really nice ones are by the American company Scott. The used bikes start at around €75.
  • Marché du Temple.

Eat

Map of the 3rd Arrondissement
  • Le Petit Marché, 9 rue de Béarn (Métro: Chemin Vert), +33 1 42 72 06 67. Open noon to 2:00AM every day. This is one of those charming little Parisian bistros which is off on its own a little. The wait staff couldn't possibly be friendlier so this is a good place to bring people to show them how nice Parisian dining can be. The food is in a higher class than the price range, and the folks who work here have an easy collegial or even familial way with each other, and with frequent guests.
  • Chez Jenny, 39, boulevard du Temple, +33 1 44 54 39 00. A super popular spot with young parisiens and parisiennes. The food must be good for it to be so consistently packed.
  • Chez Janou, 2, Rue Roger Verlhomme, +33 1 42 72 28 41. Chez Janou has such a pretty location that it's worth an evening visit just for that. But the food and atmosphere are also amazing. Vegetarians be warned, the tortellini is not the token veggie dish; there isn't one. 18 Euro/person.
  • Page 35, (4, rue du Parc Royal), +33 1 44 54 35 35. The name apparently refers to some section of some newspaper or another apparently with social listings. The carte features fantastic crêpe opportunities making this a must for lunch or lingering over a carafe or two of the house wine. €8
  • Le Potager du Marais, 22 rue Rambuteau (Métro: Les Halles), +33 1 42 74 24 66. The Potager is a 100% vegetarian restaurant specialized in re-creating the French country dining experience without any of the meat. Menus for around 15 Euro.
  • Camille, 24, rue des Francs-Bourgeois, +33 1 42 72 20 50. Fantastic fresh French food, Euro 40 per person, it is worth the wait
  • Le Pamphlet, 38 rue Debelleyme, +33 1 42 72 39 24. Elaborate cuisine at very reasonable prices in a romantic fine dining setting. €50 per Person.

Drink

Marché du Temple
  • Les Enfants Rouge, 9, rue de Beauce, +33 1 48 87 80 61. This one is makes for another tough call between the Eat and Drink sections. It's a completely traditional french bistro with a popular bar in the evenings.
  • Andy Wahloo, 69 rue des Gravilliers, +33 1 42 71 20 38. Andy Wahloo apparently means "I don't have anything" in Arabic. The Moroccan artist who owns this place certainly means it as a play on words having done the decor as a Moorish take on Andy Warhol.
  • Café des Musées, 49, Rue de Turenne, +33 1 42 72 96 17. A bog standard and absolutely unpretentious bistro, the des Musées is a great place to cool your heels over a glass or two of red or white after stomping around the Marais all day.
  • Les Arts et Métiers, 51 rue Turbigo, +33 1 48 87 83 25. An updated but otherwise standard Brasserie, the draw here is the crowd: young trendy locals love the place.
  • Café Solo, 6 rue Dupuis. Located on a newly car-free street the Solo has a huge music collection which they are in the process of selling off at €6 per CD.
  • The Quiet Man, 5, rue des Haudriettes, +33 1 48 04 02 77, [7]. This Irish pub has sessions and Irish music almost (but not quite) nightly. The atmosphere is tops for the genre.
  • Léonard, 57 Rue De Turbigo (+33 1 48 04 07 55). If you like trendy décor this is your joint.Free Wi-Fi
  • L'Attirail, 9, rue du Maire, +33 1 42 72 44 42. Cool bar/club with concerts ranging from Jazz Manouche to contemporary swing.
  • La Villa Kéops, 58, boulevard Sébastopol, +33 1 40 27 99 92. The motif is Egyptian, while the clientele appears to be almost entirely gay men. Free WI-FI

Sleep

Budget

  • Hôtel du Marais (My Hotel), 2bis, rue Commines (Métro: Saint-Sébastien-Froissart), +33 1 48 87 78 27. This little place has two names which can be a little confusing. It gets mixed reviews but some people love it and the location is hard to beat. 60€ Singles, 70-88€ doubles.

Mid-range

  • Austin's Arts et Metiers Hôtel, 6, rue Montgolfier (Métro: Arts-et-Métiers), +33 1 42 77 17 61. The rooms are small (as usual) and kept very clean. You are best off asking for something facing the front since the central courtyard is not very attractive. Particularly the 6th floor rooms are said to be quite nice. Singles for 92€, doubles 120€.
