Nestled in the heart of the capital, across from the Hôtel de Ville, in the historic Marais district, the BHV is Parisians much-loved bazaar. A stylish and trendy spot, with its pop-up stores, exclusive fashion brands, courses in home improvement, and gourmet treats, the BHV never seems to stop reinventing the very concept of retail, as well as the department store itself.
The store is a benchmark for creative types and visitors on the hunt for ideas or trends, whether in fashion or design. At the BHV, you’re sure to come across items impossible to find anywhere else, whether on the ground floor’s 1,000m² beauty and cosmetics department, the two-floor fashion department, the homeware department spread across four floors, or on the third floor devoted to the culinary arts and fine food products. A few steps away from its historic store, on Rue de la Verrerie, the Men’s BHV Marais devotes all 5 floors to men’s wear.
A special quirk of the BHV is its extensive home improvement department one floor below ground level. This Ali Baba cave of treasures includes some 50,000 items. If you’re a creative handyman or woman who likes beautiful, practical and sturdy objects for the home, then welcome to paradise!
A total shopping experience
The BHV Marais offers a 10% discount to foreign visitors living in or outside the EU, plus a 12% tax refund for those coming from outside the EU. For an even better shopping experience, express delivery, hands-free shopping and a tax refund service are also available. A free Internet connection is provided everywhere in the store, which is open 7 days a week – even on Sundays.
A must-see for decoration and the home.
The BHV Marais offers an exceptional selection of French and international brands for the home, at the heart of a unique concept, a true source of inspiration for all. Between iconic references and more confidential brands, you will find in the spaces dedicated to the universe of the home, enough to satisfy all your decorative desires: from furniture to tableware, from lighting to household appliances… but also a 700 m2 space where creative leisure is king: a wide choice of haberdashery products, stationery and scrapbooking accessories, allow you to make your own decorative objects.
The best of BHV Marais without moving from home
If you can't get to the store, continue shopping safely on the BHV Marais e-shop. Fashion, leisure, home, beauty… the most Parisian of the department stores remains a must for shopping. You can also exchange before your purchases with the home, brico and decoration experts by phone, SMS or Whatsapp, and have your purchases delivered to your home.
The most creative store in Paris also makes sure its customers get to fully enjoy the shop’s various advantages. With that in mind, shoppers are invited to discover the lovely Perchoir Marais bar. After the shops downstairs have closed, climb to the roof, where you’ll find a festive atmosphere, and one of the most beautiful terraces in Paris, open every evening. An irresistible view of the capital, cocktails, salads and grilled meats await you.
During the day, the BHV Marais has everything you need for a gourmet break. Choose from the delicious cakes by the Éclair de Génie, Starbucks, and La Kantine, Japanese food and the Paris Tokyo tearoom, or the refined dishes by Artisan de la Truffe. You're in for a feast!
