Description

A visit to Paris wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the historic Galeries Lafayette department store, which stretches out majestically across three buildings. The main building is worth a visit for its Art Nouveau decor alone. Look up and admire the extraordinary dome, an iconic symbol of the store, whose stained-glass Neo-Byzantine windows diffuse a myriad of multi-coloured lights. The banister for the monumental staircase, inspired by the Opéra de Paris, was designed by Louis Majorelle. In short, this Parisian fashion trove, now open 7 days a week, is teeming with marvels.

The best of fashion and luxury

The main Coupole store focuses on French art de vivre and fashion, offering, across 7 floors, clothes, cosmetics and accessories, as well as jewellery and fine watches for women with over 3,500 brands, including Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Céline, Cartier, Chaumet, Longchamp, Guerlain, Sisley and Hermès. On the ground floor, the shoe department has become an essential fashion stop, showcasing 150 major brands. Just next door, linked by footbridge, is the Homme store, dedicated entirely to men, with 500 brands spread across 4 floors.

360 degree view

For a gourmet break and an unmatchable view inside the dome, head to the 2nd floor of the main building. Here, the store’s reputation for excellence is maintained at the Vue sur Coupole restaurant, which offers a refined light snack menu. Or, you might prefer the experience of having Paris (literally) at your feet, with a meal at La Paillote or a drink at the Cube Bar, up on the building’s terraced roof.

Galeries Lafayette Maison & Gourmet

For more foodie treats, head across the road to Lafayette Gourmet. This kingdom of gastronomy combines fine grocers and restaurants and is guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds. French stars here include the prestigious Dalloyau, Pierre Hermé and Jean-Paul Hévin, while internationally you’ll find the Japanese pastry chef Sadaharu Aoki, Petrossian caviar, Greek delicacies by Mavrommatis, and the Italian Salumeria Rosi. Food is available to take away or eat onsite. On the upper floors, Lafayette Maison focuses on the home, stocking everything from furniture to fine bed linen.

A warm welcome

A team of multilingual hosts are onsite to help visitors at the ground-floor reception desk of the main store. There is also a Tourist Information desk on the ground floor of the Men’s store. A tax refund service is on offer, of course, and visitors can choose to transform their shopping trip into a special moment by making an appointment with a personal shopper.
