Close to the famous Hôtel des ventes Drouot, the Mecca of Parisian auctions, the Passage Verdeau soon attracted a large number of antique dealers. Collectors from all over the world come here to stroll, bargain and enjoy the charm of this peaceful gallery.

The Grands Boulevards and the Belle Époque

Parisians know this itinerary well. Around the boulevard Montmartre, you'll first take the passage des Panoramas and the passage Jouffroy, where a sweet stop is a must A la Mère de famille, the oldest chocolate factory in Paris. You then enter the Passage Verdeau at no. 6, rue de la Grange Batelière, or at no. 31 bis, rue du Faubourg Montmartre.

The many covered galleries in the 9th arrondissement bear witness to the enthusiasm of 19th-century Parisians for the bustle of the Grands Boulevards.

Unusual shops, curiosity cabinets and antique dealers

Antique dealers naturally settled in this passageway, attracted by the proximity of the Drouot auction house and its 15 auction rooms.

Inside the Passage Verdeau, wonder and surprise dominate in the face of so many unexpected objects from all over the world. The antique dealers and galleries have specialised by period or art form: oils, drawings, busts, cameras, postcards, books, furniture… The passage forms a immense cabinet of curiosities, a paradise for bargain hunters and lovers of the fine arts.

Other shops and craftsmen stand out for their originality: old-fashioned embroidery and embroidery materials, misappropriated comic strips, contemporary art and framing. Two restaurants complete this original offering, allowing passers-by to enjoy a cup of tea or a gourmet meal in the central alleyway, in the peace and quiet under the splendid glass roof cut into the shape of a fishbone.

All enjoy the beauty of the setting. Bathed in natural light, the atmosphere of the passageway is particularly welcoming, enhanced by the patina of the old wooden shopfronts.
