We stopped at this fabulous place with a chef just after shopping for fresh food at the Bastille Marekt. You can smell it before crossing the threshold -- the scent of roasting cocoa beans wafts out of the building and onto the street. There is...More

A very cool little chocolate factory owned and created by Alain Ducasse, French Michelin star chef. The chocolate is expensive, but the taste is exquisite. The manufacturing process can be seen thru windows from the small purchasing area. There is a selection of sample chocolates...More

I completely agree with the previous reviewer - the chocolate is delicious; the working space is fascinating; but even one small piece of chocolate to taste would have added to the experience.

Pricey chocolate, but worth a visit, to watch the workers making this excellent chocolate and to buy exclusives. Would be even better if they gave free tastes!

Alain Ducase has become our favorite chocolate manufacturer in Paris. The place where they make the chocolate is in itself worth a visit, the smell, watching the chocolate makers in action. My regret is the price - it's expensive - but worth every cent. The...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
