Paris: 5 decorative addresses not to be missed around the Oberkampf metro

A few years ago, this district located a stone's throw from Bastille and République was still bad. Those days are long gone. On the contrary, the district is "bobohisé". Shops, restaurants, flea markets, cafes take over the place to the delight of onlookers. Here are our 5 favorite addresses!

1- The curious

At the same time show room, boutique and decoration agency, Les Curieuses lives up to its name. Lovers and curious about beautiful things you will not be disappointed. Here, it is David Gaillard's lair which welcomes your decoration projects and which at the same time allows you to acquire his decorative favorites. A chic universe which gives pride of place to materials, sober colors and elegance. 4 rue Oberkampf - 75011 Paris

2- L'Echappée

A true bubble of well-being in the heart of Paris. Swimming pool, hammam, treatment rooms, relaxation area ... are at the rendezvous of this spa which tickles the industrial style with taste. Renovated in the rules of the art, you will swim a few strokes under a glass roof, sweat in the hammam entirely covered with mosaics and be pampered by the expert hands of beauticians. Welcome to the L'Echappée urban spa located in rue de la Folie Méricourt. Push the doors and discover a decompression airlock on 800m2! 64 rue de la Folie Méricourt - 75011 Paris

3- To the two friends

Staying in its juice, this restaurant is the trendy address of the corner not to be missed.

On the menu, Pig Parmentier with mashed chickpeas and turnips, or Spanish ham and grilled almonds. Enjoy your meal! 45 rue Oberkampf - 75011 Paris

Change of scenery guaranteed as soon as you enter the restaurant. Latin virgins, Thai Buddhas, Hindu goddesses, jasmine wreaths, colorful pictures ... create a joyful atmosphere in this restaurant nestled in rue Jacquard. Even on the plates, exoticism resonates. Brazilian, Creole, Mexican dishes amaze as much by their spicy flavors of turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, which we are not used to, as by their taste qualities.
