A Complete Guide to Faubourg Saint-Denis

The Faubourg Saint-Denis street bears all the signs of transformation. Once a quaint place of local merchants, it is now the hotspot of small shops, hip restaurants, and eccentric nightlife.

Your Daytime Agenda

Faubourg Saint-Denis was once a thoroughfare of fur sellers, vegetable stands, and burly butchers. Though you’ll be hard-pressed to find the fur sellers anymore, the butchers and vegetable vendors still thrive among the newly arrived small shops and hip restaurants.


PNY: Stylish Servers and Delicious Burgers


PNY (“Paris New York”) is one of the best burger joints in France. It has everything you want in a luncheon experience. Besides a delicious burger, the interior design is sleek and modern. There are an astounding 228 florescent light bulbs on the ceiling that illuminate the black and white tiled floor, giving the place a cozy, retro feel. The servers are minimally dressed and well-informed about their massive selection of beers. Implied in the name, this joint is the best that Paris and New York have to offer.

Restaurant 52 : The Neo-Bistro Style


Restaurant 52 is the epitome of the Neo-Bistro style. Small menu, small restaurant, and small price. Luckily, its hours aren’t as small as the check. Open from 8 AM to midnight, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or the well-planned nightcap. But just so you know, the restaurant doesn’t have a license to sell liquor, so don’t go expecting any cocktails!

Nighttime Itinerary

The Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis attracts a decidedly motley crew. Halfway between the bourgeois neighborhoods of central Paris and the more popular ones of the north, people of all ages, class and taste come together on this teeming street. If you’re new to the area or just passing through, this is the place to mingle with the locals.


Paris Texas : Smoked Meats and Crazy Cocktails


Paris Texas takes the formula of PNY and infuses it with a southern flair. With a smoker imported straight from the US, this restaurant offers a barbecue menu in all its splendor. The decor, like PNY, is sleek, but with a much more oaky feel. Light-toned wood with soft orbs dangling from the ceiling make you feel like you’re in a suave Texas hotel. And while you’re at it, make sure you try one of their distinguished cocktails.

Le Syndicat : Good Vibes, Great Drinks


Le Syndicat, compared to Paris Texas and PNY is a much different experience. This is a place with attitude. While PT and PNY give off a more subdued atmosphere, the style of Le Syndicat is much more present. Influenced by the prohibition era of the US, the lighting is dim and golden, the carafes are crystalline, and the servers are dapper as all hell. To top it off, this bar only serves french-born alcohol and the bartenders are more than happy to personalize your drinks for you. If you wanna impress on a first date, this is the place to go.

Le Mauri 7: Trendy Bar, Always Poppin’


So, you ask, where to after Le Syndicat? Le Mauri 7 is the place to be. Why? Because this place is chill, down to earth, and awash with cheap beer that you will definitely appreciate after your personalized drinks at Le Syndicat. And hey, if you don’t have a date, this is the place to go, since the crowd is young, the prices are cheap, and the atmosphere is welcoming. Whether or not you meet the love of your life, (or night), you will never have a bad time at Mauri 7.

Hotel Grand Amour : A Guaranteed Good Time


Both a hotel and a restaurant, this establishment is perhaps best suited for the more settled-in of couples. Or, maybe not, who are we to assume? However, simply know that the decor is outspoken, to say the least. Either way, whether you’re with an SO or not, this hotel is a must see if you’re in the Faubourg area.

Julien Giacalone As far as Julien can remember he always wanted to be a gangster. Unlike Henry Hill, he mostly became a writer. But a strong part of him is still anti-establishment. Which part? Only the good half.
