Paris apartment

Find out where the building and ‘Emily In Paris’ street are filmed IRL


In a world where traveling is, at best, a logistical nightmare to navigate as borders close, open, close, and then open with a strict set of conditions, we instead seek other ways to feel a feeling of escape.

Our favorite method at the moment? Watch Netflix Emilie in Paris.

The infamous show follows the life of Chicago-born and raised Emily Cooper as she transfers to a prestigious Parisian marketing firm in an effort to bring her expertise to the French communications landscape. There, she wears a bunch of quirky and sometimes weird outfits and meets some interesting characters along the way.
It goes without saying that one of the best parts of the show is its Parisian setting. Indeed, the frequent panoramas of the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Élysées remind us why the city is so famous, but what we really love to see is the amazing French architecture right outside Emily’s door, literally.

Every time she leaves her apartment building, we come across a lovely bustling street of tall stone buildings, a gorgeous fountain, a sweet little bakery, and a cozy restaurant (run by Emily’s lover, Gabriel).

Lucky for us (because whenever we do manage to get to Paris) the fictional set is actually shot on an actual street, although there are a few differences.

Here we look at what the street of Emily Cooper Actually looks like IRL.

Emilie in Paris‘and the neighboring street is Place de l’Estrapade in Paris in the 5th arrondissement.

It is a small square which houses a real pastry shop and a few restaurants scattered along the road.

Across the street is Emily’s apartment building. It looks a lot like real life: the large stone building has a wooden door at the front leading out to the square.

In the middle of the square is an island with seating and, yes, this fountain – although we have to admit it looks a bit smaller IRL, the producers really know how to work their angles …

Of course, the series does not focus solely on the Place de l’Estrapade. In each episode, we are provided with several snapshots of the emblematic and breathtaking monuments of Paris.

From the Louvre to the iconic Green Park Chairs, via the Alexandre III bridge over the Seine, the spectacle is worth the detour only for the desire to travel.

The second season is also expected to take viewers across the country when Emily visits Saint-Tropez.

In a trailer for the new installment, we find out everything we know and love about the south of France: beaches, sandstone buildings, and fluid European fashion. France, it goes without saying, we love you.

Watch the full trailer below and capture Emilie in Paris season two when it releases on December 22. Watch it on Netflix here.
