Bon Marché Rive gauche
The trend-setting Bon Marché Rive Gauche is also the eldest of all Parisian department stores. In 1852, it was the first department store to open in Paris. Designed by architects Louis-Charles Boileau and Gustave Eiffel, this epitome of elegance was soon an emblem of the Left Bank. Situated in the very chic 7th arrondissement, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche and the Grande Épicerie boast the best of designer luxury, fashion and design, culinary arts and gastronomy. And what’s more, the store is now open 7 days a week!
A podium of luxury
The moment you enter the store at 24 rue de Sèvres, you’re greeted by a select edit of accessories, across leather goods, hats, scarves, but also jewellery and fine watches. Beauty products are showcased around the main staircase under the Art Deco skylights. Discover the prestigious collection of cosmetics and make-up, including several new brands and exclusive collaborations you’ll only find here.
On the 1st floor you’ll find the women’s wear department, where the most illustrious designer labels rub shoulders with exclusive brands. On the 2nd floor, the bookstore is the meeting place for literary types, while the footwear department spotlights luxury brands in the refined setting of a winter garden. For the men’s wear department, head down one floor below ground level, where the quintessence of masculine elegance is laid out before you.
The best in elegant lifestyle
Via a footbridge that crosses over to the Rue du Bac, you reach the homeware department dedicated to art de vivre. You’ll pass through large, elegant rooms bathed in light, showcasing the latest collections and many exclusive brands. Furniture and tableware are located on the first floor surrounding the restaurant La Table set under an immense glass canopy. Three French menus serve morning, noon and evening meal options.
The taste of excellence
Located on the ground floor at 38 rue de Sèvres, the Grande Épicerie de Paris is a veritable institution of Parisian gastronomy, spread across some 3,000m2. It presents a cornucopia of rare and gourmet products from the four corners of the globe, such as truffle tagliatelli, Hawaiian red salt, rose water, Indonesian coconut sugar, or exceptional wine from the wine cellar, to name but a few.
A VIP welcome
At the Bon Marché Rive Gauche, international customers are guaranteed impeccable service. Several reception areas are available to inform and orient foreign visitors. A foreign exchange bureau, a tax refund counter, and even a Personal Shopper may be reserved as a shopping guide, ensuring your every need is met with special care and attention.
